Beach Theme Bedroom & Major “DUH”

10 Jun

I’ve been really busy lately, doing various home improvement projects.

One of my latest is decorating the guest bedroom in a Beach Theme. I had this great idea to embroider some of Urban Thread’s Seven Seas designs and frame them to hang above the bed.


This is the Seahorse in progress…looks kinda cool even without the seahorse part embroidered!



I got all three finally embroidered and framed and hung on the wall above the bed. Woohoo!
Like my swag hanging above? I made that starfish out of paper mache! That was a fun and super easy project…there is a tutorial here.

So, I’m sitting there on the bed looking at this night stand, wondering how I can decorate it and decided to look inside the little door there….


WTH? Look what I found stashed in there. Either embroidery fairies have been working on my projects FOR me, or I’m completely losing it and didn’t remember embroidering these designs and sticking them in frames already!  I think I’m really losing it.  My Hubs says memory is the second thing to go. (I didn’t ask what is the first thing.)


Yep, so I have TWO sets of framed embroidered designs.  I’m still thinking of what I can do with this second set. Maybe pillows or something… DUH.

Evenfall Lace by Urban Threads

23 May

I wanted to share this video from Urban Threads of their Evenfall Lace designs. I’ve made a few of these gorgeous lace designs, and plan to make more!

Right now, EVERYTHING is on sale half off at their website, so grab them now if you want them!


Ninja / Pirate Thumb Wars!

22 May

I was browsing through Urban Thread’s tutorial list today and remembered that I had bought these Pirate and Ninja Thumb War designs but never made them! *gasp*

So, being Wednesday, I thought it was time I did.

Also, while looking for UT’s photo to post here, I found they also have a Zombie, Vampire, Robot, and Werewolf! Whaaaat?? Nobody told me!! Into my basket they go, since they are having their fabulous Birthday Sale right now! (EVERYTHING half off!)


Here are the pieces all cut out. I altered the hook hand a little bit, and colored in the hook itself with a black Sharpie marker.


Sewing out the Pirate!


They look different sizes, but they really aren’t. I took two photos and merged them together for this picture. I found that it is impossible to take a picture of BOTH of your thumbs at the same time!

~It is also impossible to have a Thumb War with yourself…

These little guys look fierce, huh!  Which do you think will win?

Hot Cold Eye Mask

7 May


I made this Hot/Cold Eye Mask for a free gift for one of my massage clients. It’s completely done in the hoop.

This one is done with a heavy purple satin.


I made an eye mask template file, so all I have to do is import any design I want onto the front of it!
It’s left open on the right side, so I just turn it, add rice, and ladder-stitch the opening closed.

I used a design from Urban Threads on the front of this one. A little geeky, yes?

Way fun and fast!

Should I make some of these for my Etsy shop?

Sneak peak…Costume!

6 May










Burning Man is practically in my back yard, and this year, I’ve decided to start making costumes for this popular and crazy event.

Of course, no costume made by me would be complete without embroidered embellishments!  These embroidered designs are from my favorite design company, Urban Threads. It’s from their Mendhika collection.

This costume will feature a skirt, leggings, armbands and possibly a hair embellishment.   Stay tuned…I’ll be posting more pics when this is completed!
