Made these t-shirts for a friend's 50th birthday. My first thought was just to make the t-shirts for the guys but I ended making for the ladies as well. I went on the internet and bought these designs. Although the timing says 23 mins to sew the design, I think it took more than that because the thread tend to break more than once!!! I had to prewash all the t-shirts before sewing. The website from which I bought the designs also give tips on how to sew embroidery on t-shirts and towels!!! There's so much to learn!!!!

Pin basting the next quilt for machine quilting. I almost finish a quilt for her but if you remember a while back I had a major incident with water leaking through the ceiling. That quilt was soaked and some of the red colour ran on the white fabric. I couldn't possibly give her that quilt so I decided to replace it with this one!!!
It's a log cabin quilt and I made this some time back. It was in the cupboard among all the other UFOS!! This quilt was already basted with thread but I ripped out the thread and removed the old batting. I replaced the batting with a thinner batting so that it will be easier for me to machine quilt.
