New Gift Projects

I started on some gifts! I made some Herb Patterns into iron-on transfers using Sulky's iron-on transfer pens and applied them to some 100% Egyptian Cotton flour sack towels. These three will be a Christmas Gift for my Dad!
This cute pattern I also used the Transfer Pens to create an iron-on and also added more of the flowers around the design! This is a moss-green flannel pillow sham that will be for my Sister's birthday. I'm using colors that will match with the monogrammed pillowcase I had made for her Christmas '06. I've already started working on it filling in the stems and leaves of the flowers. I just love using the Q-snap hoop/frame!

Those towels are totally cool! I love the herb theme. How great for the kitchen are those? The 100% egyptian cotton flower sacks are awesome. The pillow sham looks like it is goig to be adorable. What nice gifts you are making!

I always liked flowers and herb embroidery. What a great gift for your dad. Is it still a surprise?
The pillow is adorable too. The transfer pen is new to me as well. It's probably been around forever though.

Melissa....I love your work. I found your blog on CWO. I am actually new to the blog world.

If you have time this week could you visit and say hello! I just opened a store on ETSY...photography. I can't get the link on by site...not sure what I am doing wrong. I look forward to seeing your store.
