Starting us off this week is the brilliant Debbie at Happy Little Cottage. She stitched up the most adorable pincushions and tea mat. I love her fabric choices! I want both a tea cup and a sewing machine in that print!

Melissa from Generation Q magazine shares her first experience with sewing illustration and all the reasons it makes her happy. I love how she embraces our advice to let go of perfectionism and enjoy the process!

My Welcome Spring tags were featured in Generation Q magazine spring issue.

Faith at Sarana Ave created a wall hanging at is a Liberty masterpiece! She also stitched up the Vignette project to decorate her sewing space. Her use of Liberty fabrics creates a stunning piece! And to make it unique to her, she added her signature heart strings—perfect! Again—another sewing machine I’d like to own!

Continuing with the Liberty love is Ayda at Cafenohut.

I have been following her blog, Flickr, Pinterest since I don’t know when. I became an instant fan when I found her gorgeous photography and professional settings. They are my cappuccino and cheese cake for every break. 🙂

Ayda’s work is just perfection and she chose the most delicious Liberty prints for her projects—don’t you agree? I just can’t stop looking at them!

Theses lovely hand embroidery hook arts and pretty cover are from Ayda. I hung them up on my restroom and ask every guests to wash their hands. 😉

And the use of Liberty fabrics continues with Melissa at Oh How Sweet! Melissa picked the project she wanted to make and the design that spoke to her and put them together in this magical combination. It is stunning and something that I bet she will find herself reaching for all the time.

She surprised me with her very famous zip pouch.

We exchanged “tears of joy” moment. Being a sewist allows us so many possibilities!

Jemima at Tied with a Ribbon sewed up a darling set of tea mats to enjoy with friends, cookies, and great conversation. Her use of fussy cutting really created the cutest tea cup ever! No, wait, that actual Liberty tea cup might be the cutest cup ever. I’m glad I don’t have to choose!

Jemima made me this stunning liberty pincushion. It’s such an eye candy.

And finishing us up for this week is Veronica at Vivid Felicity. Her charming pincushions show that every design in the book is perfect for hand embroidery. Sometimes people are a little nervous about sewing illustration on the sewing machine—so hand stitching is a perfect place to start! But, just like Veronica, you will soon want to try these designs on the sewing machine and as you can see—it came out delightful!

Veronica sent me this package and it was like Christmas.
