3D Uncle Sam ~ New Design

I just finished up a new 3D machine embroidery design.
UNCLE SAM will be great for the summer & summer holidays or as a gift for anyone who loves Americana.
He's even got twinkling LED lights in his hat!
I have other 3D designs including a Santa, Bunny Couple, Snowman & a Scarecrow.
I sell the Mini LED Lights on my website too.

For my Mom

For Mother's Day, I made my Mom this frame.
I cut the lettering from vinyl with my cricut. The lettering at the top & bottom is adhered to the mat. Their names are on the glass.
The 2 photos on the sides were taken the year they married. The one in the center was taken a few years before my Dad died.
I scanned & sized the photos for the openings and printed them all in greyscale to blend together.
I also etched a set of glasses for her with her monogram.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Living Wreath

We went to visit my son & DIL this weekend.
David and I made 'living' wreaths . . . of sorts.
I bought a wire salamander & a turtle at JoAnn's. We covered the inside in sheet moss, added dirt and another layer of moss. We used thin wire to hold everything in on the underside.
We poked holes in the moss with a pencil and added the Hens & Chickens.
They turned out great.

Here's David's turtle & my salamander
