Patriotic gnome tiered tray pillow

Happy Thursday! I am really enjoying free motion sewing these days. I made another tiered tray pillow (5″x5″). This one will be great for Memorial Day coming up, but Independence Day and Veteran’s Day too, of course.

I think I will be trying out some free motion sewing YouTube tutorials soon. I’ll keep you posted.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great day!

Spring and mother’s day gnomes

Did everyone have a good Easter weekend? It was a bit chilly here for my taste, but we still had a nice relaxing time with family and good food. We even braved the weather to walk the dog a couple of times. That was well worth it as we got to meet the new neighbor golden retriever puppy. Soooo adorable!

Today I have a few more Spring gnomes for you to enjoy. The bouquet of carnations is optional, but I think it’s a nice touch. Perfect Mother’s Day gift, don’t you think?

I usually get really excited for the colors of Fall, but this year the Spring colors are really bringing me joy. What about you?

These gnomes and more can be found in my Etsy shop:

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Cinco de Mayo tiered tray pillows

Hello there! My family and I just got back from a very nice Spring Break trip to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We hiked in the Smokies, ate too much, shopped too much, and had a great time! Now it’s time to get back to work!

I felt inspired to dig out my free motion sewing foot for my machine and create a little Cinco de Mayo magic for some tiered trays. Have you ever tried free motion sewing? I love the imperfect sketched on look it gives. That look combined with the bright colored fabrics used to make these festive pillows, and I was in heaven!

These pillows can be purchased in my Etsy shop:

I was thinking about adding patterns for these pillows and other free motion designs to my shop. Perhaps a YouTube tutorial on free motion sewing? Comment what you think below.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my blog!
