A Reveal and a Giveaway!!

My studio is part of the garage and at night when the temperatures drop, it gets cold in there. I always cover Princess (my Pffaf) with the hard cover and then throw an old beach towel over it, to prevent the moisture getting in. It was time for a change, a sewing machine cover.

So this is my new design Butterflies and Blooms. The fabrics I used are April Cornells Natures Chorus, which are just beautiful and with some pretty applique, ric rac, old buttons and lace it makes a wonderful addition to the studio.


Defintely a lot prettier than the old beach towel and more practical Im sure.


The top, back and side panels are all pieced and quilted as well. I have 3 copies of this new pattern up for grabs, so if you would like to win one, leave a comment on this blog post and I will draw 3 winners next week. (Please remember to leave an email address if you are a no reply commentor).

Maria kept a close eye on the binding process and she seems to approve, must be the butterflies. She agrees its a cover fit for.....the Princess!!

Oh, that would look lovely on my Princess too or on Mums Sally (singer), come to think of it Sally is older than my princess so she probably needs it more. We would love it dearly :o}

Dear Rose,
At the risk of this becoming another UFO, I think this would look lovely in my studio. It would be especially useful to keep the dust off my machine that has accumulated this past year from un-use. Julie in NH
