Finished!!!...almost

The table topper I made for my daughter's new apartment is finished. Well is almost finished. I still have to sew  and lock all the loose threads.

Instead of a hand sewn binding I used another technique and sew my biding on the right side with a decorative machine stitch. It's a very quick way to sew the biding and the final result is quite good.

To quilt the border I first made some free hand designs with a water soluble pen and then free motion quilted it following the lines as accurately as possible.

Moving forward

I'm back in business.
My daughter is moving into a new apartment next week. She and her boyfriend are moving to a small apartment in the hospital residence. they won't have to share it with no one else, YEAH!
So I had to make some stuff to help her decorate it.



A table top ready to be quilted


I had to stop my FMQ last year due to an elbow tendinitis, but today I got adventurous and tried it again
 As you can see I'm a bit pout of practice but I think my daughter won't mind
I'm half way through.

My first piece of clothing...Yeah

Hi everybody. I'm back!!! And this time is for real.
No more complaining about my daughter or my job. I'm determined to get it all over with.
New life new mojo. Clothes.
I want to learn how to make clothes but I had to star slowly so I found a wonderful tutorial and made my first baby dress.
 It's not perfect but I'm pretty pleased with the final result.

 Now I will have to enlarge the pattern and make a bigger one with matching pants and a pacifier holder .
Next time I'll try some nicer buttons or even some colored snaps. Just wait...

Why did I become an Herbalife Independent Distributor?





When my 22 year old daughter went away to work in a London hospital I got into a depression swirl.
Didn't want to work,sew, anything but eat. I put on some weight and that made me feel even more depressed.
Then, by chance I met a friend that had been taking Herbalife products for quite a while and she convinced me to try them.
That really changed my life. not only did I loose the extra weight but I also got out of that depression state. I fell more energetic, my students also noticed the difference in me.
I felt so good that I thought that I should pass on the word and help more people.

If you want an healthier way of life, Herbalife is the answer. If you have any questions or doubts just e-mail me and I will gladly give you all the information I have. ( dfelgueiras@sapo.pt).
