First up are two cord wraps I made. The one on the bottom is designed for small cords like a cell phone charger cord. I made 24 of them in various colors of marine vinyl to give as gifts at the retreat. Folks seemed to like them. I only made one of the larger one and it is wrapping the power cord to my Elna sewing machine. The smaller design is available here from Embroidery Garden. Oh, did I mention it is free? I see plenty more of these in my future.
As I mentioned earlier we were given fabric to make a little gift to share. I failed to take a picture of it but I did make a sample one to make sure it would work out ok. I used a bright floral print. This, too, came from Embroidery Garden although it wasn't free. This whole little zippered bag was made in my hoop! Amazing. The inside is completely lined with no exposed seams.
I don't have a huge embroidery hoop so this is about 5" x 7". These designs have fabulous instructions. I just followed each instruction in order and pretty soon I had this cute little case. There might be more of these in my future -- I haven't decided yet.
I really enjoyed this embroidery
work fun. But now I am back to quilting although I thought I might set up the embroidery machine to run while I am quilting...
So not a particularly good week for goals but on the other hand I got back to reading a bit and taking it easy.

I was surprised last week with folks bringing me quilts to quilt. I've got three to do and someone else reserved time for mid July. Nice. None are needed immediately so I can easily intersperse my own sewing in between.
