I love making these pillows. All of my grandkids have some for their bedrooms and they love to cuddle up with them. For this pillow I used two pieces of fleece and embroidered one with a design from OESD’s “Words of Whimsy” embroidery collection #12292.

I just finished a cute and trendy wallhanging featuring embroidery designs from OESD’s “Stitch ‘n Bloom” Crafters Collection #20001. The designs begin to bloom stitch-by-stitch and, as they build, truly look like they were sewn by hand using embroidery floss – in a fraction of the time.

Here’s a peek at some of the projects I’ve been stitching with the new embroidery collections, Bold & Beautiful and Stitches ‘n Bloom. Both are beautiful as well as versatile. Look for them at your local BERNINA dealership.

Boy, did I have fun creating this pillow using the three-dimensional designs in OESD’s Chrysanthemum Premier Collection #017! Parts of the design are heavily stitched, and when the embroidery is complete you simply cut through the stitches with a very sharp knife to make them “bloom.”

I’m getting a jump start on my New Year organization with these new, sturdy Isacord thread trays — they happen to fit perfectly in this deep drawer and stack easily as well. The Isacord thread cones snap onto the tray, so it’s easy to lift out without spilling!
