Today held a special surprise for me! I opened my email to find that I was the winner of the Sew Beautiful Blog giveaway. I will be the recipient of Beverley Sheldrick's Silk Ribbon Embroidery Projects for Baby, a linen gift bag ready to embroider and several yds. of beautiful silk ribbon! I'm so excited! Many thanks to Sew Beautiful, my favorite and most useful magazine!
Hello again! Christening gown for my newest grandbaby Gabriel- check! Easter dress for Cardyn - check! Easter panties/bloomers to match - check! Shadow work collar - check! Smocked dress - check! A little facelift for the blog - check! Heaven's to Betsy...it's been busy! Three more Easter outfits to go and I can look into some other fun things that are popping up around the corner! One of which is to get this little blog the way I'd like it to be. I have found so much inspiration and information from fellow sewing enthusiasts and truly appreciate the sharing community of those who love to sew. It seems with each "click of the mouse" I am finding more and more beautiful things created from the fingertips of some very talented people!
Speaking of talented people - many blessings flow from the fingertips and one that I am particularly proud of happens to be my sister, Barbara Davis. Barbara is an extremely blessed and talented artist. Her sweet spirit flows through the tips of her paintbrushes, as you will see. Refresh your spirit and visit her blog - it's listed on my sidebar!
I'm Betsy. I am a needle artist with a passion for heirloom sewing. Whether it be English smocking, shadow-work embroidery, heirloom sewing or just fun and artsy stuff, I love it all! Here you will see where my needle and threads take me and hopefully find some inspiration along the way.
