Sewing machine cover

Another week has flown by and I´ve actually been able to concentrate on sewing matters instead of worrying about computer issues. Today I meet up with my sewing buddies to spend an enjoyable afternoon, sewing, gossiping and drinking cups of tea -  well, ok and just maybe consuming the odd biscuit, cake or similar.  We meet up each week, taking it in turns to be at our different homes and these get-togethers really cheer us up (do we need cheering up?) and keep our needlework enthusiasm at a peak.  This week I sorted out a few photos of my sewing machine cover.


Here are some details of the front.



Mice everywhere



This is the back view.




Mouse on the side.


This week I also received a packet from Monique at A Half Baked Notion.  I won her giveaway during the Grow Your Blog hop and the beautiful earrings arrived.  I was able to choose from various pairs and here are the three I chose.


Monique also very generously included some of her snowflake buttons.


Aren´t they pretty?  Do hop over to her blog and see the lovely things she makes at A Half Baked Notion.

Thank you for your visit.

  3. Totally adorable! Love the skinny legs and bright coloured feet on the mice. The little mouse snoozing on the quilt on the back of the cover is my favourite! Your handwork is exquisite!

  14. Oh, Sheryl, I just noticed today you added my earrings and buttons :) I was sure I had already commented about how adorable your little mice were, too. I know you were having issues with Blogger (aren't we all?) but perhaps it is me that is confused LOL.

  16. hola soy una seguidora y veo que modificastes el blog. Creo que la funda de la Tablet te resaltaría más las figuras de los gatitos sobre un fondo claro.
    saludos

  17. That must have been such a fun project to work on Sheryl and wow to the fact that you designed it yourself.
    If you can design like that I think you should submit something to one of the Australian magazines. I'm sure you would be published.
