a little something for me

My sewing machine came with this plastic cover which worked great, that is, until it ripped. At first it was just a tiny rip, really not a big deal at all. But then the rip slowly became bigger and bigger until it was only half covering my machine. At that point, it was really quite useless as a cover.

It's been in the back of my mind since then that I really should get a new cover. I stumbled across this tutorial for a Sewing Machine Cover on Sew 4 Home a few weeks ago and decided to try it out. I am mostly happy with the result, though I think my corners could have been done better.

now I just need to work up the nerve to try the Ironing Board Cover tutorial.

I awoke this morning to see this

if you can't see (sorry for the horrible picture!), "happy birthday" is written around the border in quite a few different languages.

Host a Spring Party

I am most excited to introduce my newest listing in my Etsy shop, The Littlest Daisy.

I have put together a charming Hostess Set with blank invitations, thank you cards, name cards, and cuisine cards. The aqua & red really say "Hello Spring!" to me.

Go check it out!
