I am starting a sewing/machine embroidery group,in Southern California, North San Diego County area. No 6 thread machines. To get together 1 sat a month. Must have a sewing/embroidery Machine that you can transport. Does not matter if you are a seasoned sewer or a newbie. There are 2 of us now looking for about 3-4 more. Sewing Diva (I should have named myself) Sewing fanatic, he he!

3  COOKING / Dessert / Eatable Easter Basket on: March 30, 2009 09:27:58 PM
I made this cute Easter Basket out of marshmellow treats and fondant. Then Decorated it with eatable grass and candy eggs and bunny peep. Only thing you can't eat is the handle. I could not figure a way to keep the fondant up.
It was a big hit with the little kids!
4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Halloween Costume made from 2 thrift store dresses on: February 21, 2009 10:09:40 PM
I made this dress for my daughter who wanted something special. I got on of those really plain dresses that just slip over your neck that was made from knit fabric that looks like crushed velvet and I slit it down the front. I used wonder under to turn the edges over and then I put in grommets and laced up the front with rope trim. I slit the sleeves and sewed in some cream colored satin and made them tye with the grommets and rope trim in 3 places. I also pulled up the skirt on the sides and tyed it with the rope trim. The other dress that I used was a little house on the prarie looking wedding dress that I got for $20.00. I just loved the skirt. I cut off the bottom of the dress at the waist and made a skirt. Then I ripped of the lace and attached it to the neck and bottom of the sleeves of the red dress. After all my hard work my daughter told me she was not going to the Halloween party! I loved it so much I wore it to work with my hair up in ringletts. The red dress cost $8.00 and the wedding dress $10.00 (1/2 price that day at the thrift store) The rope trim was .99 a yard about 10 yards. Not to bad in price compared to those poorly made costumes they sell now.

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Baby Christening or Blessing Dress I made on: February 20, 2009 09:41:10 PM
I made this dress for a little girl who's mommy said she could not find one small enough for her and was what she wanted. It is about 0-3 month size. I loved making it. I overlaid the dress with organza embroidered with little flowers and a scalloped edge &  pearl trim around the neck. It was fun!

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Bridal Shower Gift Basket w/embroidered dish towels. on: February 19, 2009 09:59:06 PM
I made this for a friend of mine's daughter that was getting married. I had asked if she liked anything special, like frogs, cats? but all her mom told me was that she liked the color red. Well this was a big hit at the shower. Her little sister told the lady next to me that it was her sister's favorite gift! I used a toper wash away stablizer on the top of the design so that it stood out more. The design I got out of my Brother's 900D sewing embroidery machine
