Some Links For Wednesday

Here are the latest round of links I had saved. This may be it for awhile.

I forget how I ended up there but I'm glad I found Our Sustainable Shire because there's a Dachshund embroidery pattern there. You can see how it looks all stitched up and on an apron here.

You have to check out these cute pouches over at Martha MacGyver. They're made from a napkin and some cording. Get part one of the tutorial here and part two here.

I linked to this fun owl card back in the day when my blog was lonely and no one was reading it but me so you may have missed it at the time. And, if you haven't been to Mmmcrafts before, be sure take a look at all the tutorials there -- look at the cute tooth fairy pillow!

Over at Incy Wincy Stitches, are a few small patterns you can use to make embroidered buttons, including an owl, a bird, a robot and a cupcake.

There's a free embroidery block of the month going on at Gail Pan Designs. Every month through September, Gail will post another pattern, and if you stitch all nine of them, you will eventually be able to make a quilt with your blocks. Details on the BOM and the first pattern called "Love" is here. (Thanks to Loralyn for the link!) Gail also posted a Christmas stitchery pattern that I just love so be sure to check that out too. Maybe if I start stitching that tonight, it will be done in time for the holidays.

Kandra and Renee over at Sibling Craftery (formerly known as Sublime Sisters) are sharing embroidery designs for Valentine's Day and the kitchen.

Once again, I am amazed at all the creative and generous bloggers who share their patterns and projects. Thank you so much, everybody!

Great links! Those napkin pouches have endless possibilities. Just another addition to my to-do list... Since I sometimes eat dinner next to my sewing machine, it's not entirely out of the question to just lean over and stitch it up while I'm eating, right?

Love the dachshund one!

Thanks for telling others about our free patterns! :) Now if I could just figure out the trick to getting people to comment. LOL

Oh, if only I didn't have to sleep! There are so many great projects out there to do, but only so much time! Great links. Thanks!

Thanks for the BOM from Gail Pan Designs-that's a to-do.
