It is so important that we understand our machines. This helpful diagram from Regretsy will clarify the different parts for you.

I got my journal cover today and it is spectacular! Fiddlegirl8 knows I love bees and she out did herself. It is made out of lovely linen with quilted pieces. Plus, a bookmark with a nice wooden button to match.
I truly love it! Thank you so much Diane!!

My partner is having some issues, so I was asked to post pictures of the cover I sent.
Soooo, without further ado, here it is.

The background is a light sage green cross stitch material. I didn't take a picture of the inside because it is plain material.
The patterns are counted cross stitched on an ivory background.

4  Re: Journal Cover Swap (SU CLOSED, SO Mar 16) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Subee on: February 23, 2015 12:44:41 PM
My partner, RebeccaJay is in England. Most of the notebooks/ journals available in England are A5 size, which is 5.8 x 8.3 inches. Did you know that you can't get that size in the US, I looked EVERYWHERE. I told her I would still make here a journal cover that size, but I was a little worried about sizing without the book.
Well, my husband had a great idea. Did you know that Staples will bind a book for you? That means they have a book shearer for cleaning up the edges. I bought a journal and had it trimmed to that size. Isn't he clever?
In case anyone is having that issue, this was an easy solution.
Sorry, can't help if you need it bigger Tongue

I got a package in the mail today, and you won't believe what's in it! The sweetest tiny (wooden peg) Geisha girl and her pet cat.

The tin looks like it is covered with clay, very pretty.

Inside the tin are scenes of Japan AND there are even extra scenes so no one gets bored (what a great idea!).

The geisha and kitty look very happy to live in there Smiley

And here it all is together, including a little map of Japan to help her get around when she goes home.

I love everything, thank you so much, PerfectlyBohemian. You rock!

I just got a most wonderful package in the mail today. Momof2, you spoiled me! I love it!
From left to right and top to bottom ~
Yummy cocoa, yummy smelly lemongrass soap and a huge marvelous mug rug (hubby actually tried to steal it!).
Then a set of heavy ceramic coasters (how did you know I needed some nice ones? Only have some crappy $ store ones). A cute pen topped with a coffee filter carnation, sitting inside a neat coffee mug, which magically matches my pot holders. Last, but certainly not least, a cute and handy set of hand warmers.
Thank you so much, I love everything!

8  Scar Baby in Crochet: Completed Projects by Subee on: January 22, 2015 12:09:08 PM
A friend of mine is having brain surgery this week. They are going up a vein to take care of an aneurism. That means no shaved head and no head scar. She is a bit upset by this. Her thinking is, "If I have to go through all this, I want something to show for it!"
So, to commemorate her ordeal, I made her a scar baby. She has her scar where my friend would, if they operated on her the conventional way.

9  Pillow Sham Stockings in Winter Holidays by Subee on: December 20, 2014 08:50:45 PM
After Halloween I went to Goodwill, looking for prom dresses and such.
I wanted some satiny material to make Christmas stockings for the family. I figured that would be much cheaper than buying the material.
Well, I didn't find a decent dress, but I did find 2 gold brocade pillow shams. This is what I made.

Before (the stripes are on the back of the sham)


The initials are on 2 inch wood discs, painted gold with copper lettering.
I'm very happy with the way they turned out Smiley

10  Iron Giant Wood-burning in Completed Projects by Subee on: December 05, 2014 05:14:44 PM
My daughter LOVES Dr. Who (me too) so I have started a new tradition with her. Every year she gets a wood-burning of a Tardis in an unusual place. Last year it was with Cinderella on the palace steps. This year it is with the Iron Giant, one of our favorite movies.
This is done on an 11 inch cheese box lid made of basswood.
(this is not my artwork, it is from a t-shirt)
