Welcome to my Blog!

So many of my friends have said to me, "Betty, you should have a Blog, it's so easy to do".

Here's my attempt at Blogging. My name is Betty (aka Scottie), I'm from North Carolina. I've been involved in a variety crafts over the years, computer crafts, machine embroidery. I enjoy making cards, boxes, bags and items for the home. Here you will find some of my projects (past and present).

Please leave a comment so I know that you were here.

Past Projects

I thought I would share some pictures of my first few embroidery projects that I stitched after I bought my Bernina Embroidery Machine.

I'm thinking about stitching up a couple of Christmas Stockings next. I wish I could take a refresher course on machine embroidery, I'm so rusty.

The two shirts below were fun to do, I was so proud that the button hole designs lined up correctly.

The black stocking on the left is one of my favorites, I gave it to my friend's husband who's a Preacher. The one on the right I made for Kelly. They both were big hits.

This was my first attempt a stitching a free standing lace design on a pillow case.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
No it's not snowing. But I did get out my sewing machine and decided to stitch up some Lace Snow Flake Ornaments. This year I'll be including an ornament with each Christmas Card I send out.
