I have finally updated my machine embroidery design shop after several weeks. Due to family problems I have not been at home very much. My poor eldest daughter slipped a disc in her back a few weeks ago. She has 3 small children, the youngest is only 16 months old. As her partner has an important medical science job he had to still go to work and she desperately needed help. She lives 75 miles away so I have been staying with her to help with the children and do the three times daily, two mile walk to take my older two grandchildren to school/ pre-school and back. Now she is beginning to mend and not in so much pain I am back at home.
While there I took her a no longer used Brother Innovis sewing machine I had. She has never used a sewing machine before so I gave her a few lessons and now she is off on a new addiction! She has discovered a new creative streak and in a couple of weeks has become sewing obsessed.
I am amazed at what she is now making without help. It has helped take her mind off her back problem too!
I have now added a new set of embroidery designs to my shop which I created especially with bedroom decor in mind. They would look great on cushions to decorate a bed. There is this pretty cuddling lovebirds design, a baby bird sleeping, a cute sleepy owl,
and this decorative moons and stars design. They are available as a set. As it’s February my free machine embroidery downloads this month are both romantic designs. This Love Hearts design is a new one. Our weather in England has been very cold and we have had a fair amount of snow for the Eastern part of England. It looks like there is more to come this week. While I was staying with my daughter I took some photos around her pretty village. I love this little cottage by the river. It looked really cosy in the snow.
My little grandson enjoyed his first snowy experiences. This photo made me laugh! Bless him! His new coat is a little on the big side! This is him – he has big blue eyes and long blonde curls.I think he’s gorgeous, but I’m biased of course!!
