Look at the new presser foot that I got in the mail today! It is a Flower Stitch that can be used with either your embroidery machine or sewing machine! There are at least 8 different stitches that it can make! Sew excited and can hardly wait to try it out after I get off work! I got it at Amazon.com for less than $6. plus shipping and handling!

A few weeks ago, I was looking at the Nancy’s Notions catalog, okay drooling, and found the fancy flower foot. I still need to play with it but I have been working overtime and too tired to play afterwards. It goes on nicely but you have to remember to put the feed dogs down. Well, I tried that and couldn’t get them to go down. I then realized that I needed to turn the wheel a couple of times. DUH! Tonight, I will play and try and post pictures of the stitches that it makes.

I was also looking at the various quilting feet that she had in the catalog and the DVD and workbook for quilting with different feet. I didn’t want to spend that much money on a foot and looked at amazon.com and found a set of 32 presser feet for quilting for under $20 and went ahead and ordered it. I know there are a few repeats of what I already have, but that’s okay. It came yesterday. Get this, it was from Kentucky, USA and all these great feet in it and it advertised having the name of the feet on the back, which it did! But it was written in Chinese characters! LOL! What the heck! Good thing I have a book that shows all the type of feet available and I can figure it from there, but I sure do not read Chinese! Still tickled about that! Wish me luck in translating!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
