Happy Thanksgiving 2009!

With Pene-chan’s cheerful help, I baked 4 pumpkin pies last night!

Three of them are for the family, and one pie that hasn’t any nuts will be MINE.

Before wrapping each pie, Pene-chan & Balu-chan gave the last check-up.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

bed time story

My sewing machine is back!!! I’m so glad that I can do my handmade work for this Holiday season on schedule. I can’t wait for stitching with Christmas music♫

A little girl is sleeping in her pink bear mummy sleeping bag. Her favorite teddy is also in a bear sleeping bag next to her. The cookies and milk are both gone! In exchange, there are two presents in her room. It is the Japanese style that Santa leaves a present next to each pillow...

I think that this is a peaceful and cheerful appliqué. I want to make more sweet bed time story appliqué that can help my peaceful sleep.

Thank you for visiting!

Panda-chan says, hi!

Panda-chan walked from the distance with her favorite teddy panda. (See the little foot prints of Panda-chan). Oh? You are somebody she knows... And so, Panda-chan says, “hi!” to you.

I think that this framed work would be a pretty welcome sign for your room.

I’m glad that the applique was almost completed when my hard working sewing machine broke...

ががーーん! It was shocking when the machine made the terrible sound!!! I have to wait until tomorrow to find out if it can be fixed or I have to buy a new machine.

Thank you for visiting!

Panda-chan’s evening delivery

It was already a bit dark outside when Panda-chan finished wrapping her presents. It had started snowing too, but she had to deliver on time. Maybe, if they weren’t handmade teddy pandas, she could delay delivery. But Panda-chan is excited about her little creations, and wants to show everybody her teddy pandas.

“Woow! Thank you,” Panda-chan imagines that her friends will say.

I will take a short break from the Panda-chan’s handmade story, and I will make 3 simple appliqué framed works next week. I hope that I can introduce my new medium size gama (framed) pouches this month too.

Thank you for visiting!

Panda-chan’s holiday wrapping

After making 3 teddy pandas, Panda-chan has to wrap them carefully. It seemed that she couldn’t find the same size boxes...

I’m very happy that this became another warm & happy Holiday item! I hope that the Panda-chan’s fabric picture will be a pretty Christmas decoration!

More framed work will come this month!

Here are the two previous works that I didn’t update on my blog.

Thank you for visiting!

first snowman 2009

This padded snowman is elegantly pretty. Maybe he is too fancy for Panda-chan’s creation? I love the landscape of the appliqué, and it is exciting to stitch the kind of layered background that I usually avoid when I make pouches. For pouches, I try to create flat appliqués, so it doesn’t get rubbed too much in use.

Making a Winter theme appliqué makes me feel very warm☃ I just need a cup of cocoa, and an embroidery sampler on my lap...☕ I really need a fireplace at home, but right now I light candles and rest my eyes.
