As a Martha Pullen licensed sewing teacher I love to learn new sewing techniques and I equally enjoy teaching sewing techniques to others. You can also find me teaching Bernina Customer Courses at my local Bernina dealer. In addition, I demonstrate Stampin' Up products. I am a servant of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, wife of one, mom of two, and grandma of five. Welcome to my sewing and crafting studio!

Garden Stake Banner
When I finished the block, hung it up, and stood back and looked at it, I noticed that the flowers (particularly the top yellow flower) blended into the background and the banner looked a bit blah. My awesome daughter suggested adding stamen to the middle of the flowers. I was too lazy to add any more sewing to this little project, so enter my Silhouette die cut machine. I cut the "stamen" shapes with my Silhouette and applied the iron-on rhinestones to bling my flowers. I also used Tim Holtz Distress Stickles to outline the leaves on the top flower (the color I used was Shabby Shutters). Much better!
