Today, I am Nuts About…

stbs-Nuts About


Well, the first hop of the year is nearly over, and today is my day to show off what I’ve done for this hop.

I am pretty late in getting my project done for this hop, it was only actually finished to the point where I could just snap a picture of it a few moments ago actually.. I’ve never come so close to not finishing for a hop before. I’ve just been so busy helping a friend, the past week or so, and trying to get the Sunbonnet block patterns created, so I just kind of let this as I knew I could sew it pretty quickly, I just didn’t realize until yesterday that today was the last day.. LOL sew, without further ado, these are a few things I am nutty about.

I love coffee, last year, I showed off my love of coffee, but I didn’t talk about my love of chocolate. Like everyone, I love Godiva, I love Sees, I love Belgium chocolates, but I also love something as simple as a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup also.

So I made a mug rug first (this was made a week or so ago while I was just playing around with something else on my machine, I had this design in the floppy disk and decided to stitch it out.

ChocolateThis cute mugrug pattern is from SewAZ designs.

I’m still getting all the jump stitches removed, and I will note, I would never stitch this out again, to many jumps for my liking..

I love her designs, but I will avoid the text ones from now on.

Sewing..This next one is for my love of sewing. I just really love to sew, and decided I needed a new cover for my Ult 2001 machine. The old one is getting pretty raggedy, and is after all 14 years old now. This is the front of the cover, it will have a border of about 4-6 inches on the right side that will be added, and then I will quilt it. I need to fix a few errors tho, which for some reason happened on the top row..

The designs are from Embroidery Library.
