One thing I still love about my childhood is Cinnamon Butter Toast!  You have to use real butter, that's the key.  I load it up with my over the top daily allowance of real butter then sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top.  Put under the broiler and she'll be bubbly in no time. I don't treat myself often but when I do, my tummy slaps my face saying "Where have you been?".  Well, I'm off to enjoy then gonna go be creative!

New Swirling Cabin Coming Soon!

I wanted to share a sneak peak of what's coming.... a LOG CABIN with a "TWIST" all Pieced in the Hoop!!   Below is 4 color and 2 color examples I stitched up. 

 This block is known also by several names, but I created this one today called Swirling Cabin.  It has numerous possibilities.  Here are just a few.
This block colorway can make this.
 Now change the color order and you have this tilted cabin.
This block can make this. 
I sure love making blocks with my embroidery machine.  It took me 6 minutes to make a perfect 5" block without having to precut ONE THING!
