Felt Daisy ~ Sweet for Mom & more

I'm lovin' felt flowers. After making these I knew I wanted to make more.

I created this machine embroidery felt daisy & leaf design and think the possibilities with it are endless.

You can use them as hair clips, pins, magnets, to decorate packages, totes . . . and on & on

You can download these free machine embroidery design files from Embroidery Garden Yahoo Group until the end of May 2011.

You can also download my free Fringe Alphabet Button Covers (shown with the letter A) from my Machine Embroidery Ad List Yahoo group.

100% Recycled Planter Bench

A few tree branches, scraps of cedar boards, one husband & a Sunday afternoon . . . put them all together and a few hours later I have a new planter bench.

When I get plants in it and set out in the backyard, I'll post a pic.

It really needs to warm up, I'm itching to get digging in my flower garden

I vinyled a Market Tote

I was going to machine embroider this market tote but decided to get out my Cricut and put a vinyl monogram on it instead.

It has a laminated finish on it and I used outdoor vinyl.

The ribbon adds a nice touch I think

Butterfly Crossing

It's still really cool here and not a lot has come up in the garden yet, but I thought I'd try to hurry it along and make a new garden sign.

I found these blank, black metal signs at Michaels.

I decided to put some butterflies on it and Butterfly Crossing. I get lots of butterflies in my garden in the summer.

I cut the white, matte outdoor vinyl on my Cricut.
The font is Amaze & the butterfly was free. I put it all together in SCAL

Hurry up summer!
