Lots going on here!


So I finished my coat refashion embroidery project.. just in time for it to warm up! But that's ok.. I'm ready for spring!!! Anyways.. I can't decide... no flowers up top on the lapel or should I add 1.. or more.. what do you think????

Here's a close up of the embroidery.... love the 3d flower effect! And the extra large design was pretty easy thanks to the grand hoop my Pfaff 2170 uses!

I added new buttons.. the old ones were tarnished gold... and ugly.
I had so much fun re fashioning this coat! And I think it looks great...its exactly what my coat closet needed.... if I could just decide about the lapel....


Here's another pair of boots I embroidered... these were $3 at a thrift store... perfect for embroidery projects! The butterfly is 3d! I've got lots of compliments on these....



I also added a applique 3d embroidery flower to the recent purse I just made... I think it adds a little more style to it.



Recent crochet projects finished.... A bolero... because I wear them soooo often!


This pic didn't turn out the way I wanted but this yarn is beautiful! Its black alpaca with sliver, gold, blue and pink sparkle threads all through it !! Making it compatible with lots of my wardrobe!
Its now a long sleeve triangle lace shrug...



This week on the sewing machine..... The Bald Man's new shirt! He picked this fabric out himself while we were in ATL last time at Gail K's. I am finished with it... I'll get pics when we go out tonight. Ofcourse he wanted embroidery on it but I finished it up in 2 days... not bad time.... Ya know I have to make him shirts and stuff from time to time so he'll keep buying me machines!
;-)



On the felting/punch machine.... animal print chiffon.... I'm punching/distressing this fabric to give it some texture.... this project will take awhile....


Also on the sewing machine..... My new mini dress!!!!! with this fabric! I love the military trends I've seen in this springs fashion mags... she here's my version of it! Its done and I'll get pics of it to when we go out! Saturday night is Sushi night for us!

I've also been organizing and re organizing my 3 sewing rooms... Its coming together!


And here's the other B-day present my mom give me.... a quilted wall hanging she made. "what fabric"!!!! hahaha exactly what I'm saying! This looks so cute in my main sewing room!

Next week.... all I know is I'm doing a pair of dress trousers. I'm sure something else will come to mind to sew....
Y'all have a great weekend and God Bless you!!!

You've really made a difference with the coat, I love it! I never thought I'd want an embroidery machine, but the more great things I see others make, the more I think I'm changing my mind. Did you use a pattern for the first crocheted shrug? I make a lot of shrugs, too, but I don't have a pattern like that and I love the shape.

I'm going to vote for adding a little something to the coat lapel--maybe a smaller version of some of the flower designs trailing up the opposing lapel, for balance! And love the new coat buttons. And the flower on the bag--you're right, that really does add a lot!!

I wish I had the patience and skill for crochet...I could use a couple of shrugs and whatnot! Maybe I can bribe my best friend into making me one. :D

You did a fantastic job on the coat and think the embroidery on the bottom should be the focal point only. You are definitely getting your crafting on... keep it coming.
