    I am hoping you can help me. I lost my copy of CME May/June 2011. I desperately need one of the projects that was in that issue. I need pages 20-24 for the satin quilt. I have tried ordering that issue but cannot find it anywhere, only in a compilation of the full year for 2011. I look forward to making this for my new great nephew.

    Thank you

I have a Husk Varna Desinger Ruby. I needed it because it takes a 200 mm 0or 8 in wide hoop. I have a book french beeded things and in it a tree. I have the required box and ordering green wire and 500g dk green beads. I might hang my emboideris on the tree. HV owns most so no sell. Have many stars left

    1 I embroider coordinated sets for the guest room with mug rugs, circle table toppers, bed scarf, tissue box cover, and towel toppers for the adjoining bath.

    2. I embroider coordinated sets for the kitchen/dining room/ sun porch which include table topper or runner, mug rugs, place mats, towel toppers for handwipers/

    3. I set up my large hoop with wash away stabilizer and fill it with small angels. These are sent to people in church with an angel message for those undergoing cancer therapy, or for those grieving a loved one’s death.

    4. I embroider several praying hands in one hooping, setting up with soft and strong stabilizer and a happy background. These are cut apart and sewn onto fringed pieces of burlap. We attach them to a printed card that explains the symbolism of the Pocket Prayer Shawl. I set up the stops on the design so that all of the hands sew, then after a stop, I change the thread for the “sleeves”.

    5. All of the above are fun, and well received when given as a gift, a hug from God, or sold at shows. But my favorite to do for my creative soul is to choose a simple vintage design (like umbrella girl), sew it out, cutting it out on point. I then make a 10 minute block with 4 large coordinating squares. The On POint embroidery goes in the diamond in the middle, and I usually machine sew the “cathedral window” frame down over the edges of the embroidery. These blocks can then be used for many things including table toppers, towel decorations, mug rugs, larger quilts, etc. When I put out a block done with batik squares set as a mug rug, it always sells first.
