New Pattern..."Sew she Did"...

This is my new pattern that I've been
working on for the last little while.

It's a project that would be fun to have
 in your sewing room...

After all...sewing does take a
little bit of faith...

And we all need some encouragement
now and then...

Especially when we're trying something new.

Do you ever wonder if what you're making will really turn out the way you have planned?...

Or if your best will be good enough?

Well I do.

I think we all do.

But the very first step you take is
believing that you can...

And the next step is doing it.

"She believed she could...
SEW she did."

This project was "sew" much fun to design, draw and then to applique.
I've always wanted a turquoise sewing machine so that's what I made!
I used assorted red buttons...my trademark ric-rac for the cord...glass beads for
the pins...woolfelt for the pincushion top and I added vintage embroidery scissors
 just for fun!

To celebrate the release of this pattern...
I will be teaching it in a 2 day workshop on
September 12-13 at
My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe in Logan, Utah.
If you would like to join me...
call the shop at 435-213-3229. 

I'm soooo looking forward to it...
the shop is just darling and Kris is such a cute and wonderful hostess!
I will be teaching my method of applique and if you've always wanted to learn it...
come join me for 2 days of quilty fun!!
Hope to see you there:)
xx
Lori 
Pin It!
