Summer Picnic Tea Towel Freebie Design

Our Summer Christmas Sale has come to a close so we are back to “normal” nuttiness around the Bird Brain Studio.  Kendall has flown off to Puerto Vallarto, Mexico for a weeks rest and relaxation…..a much deserved outing for our tireless shipping guru!  Tina and I are left holding down the fort. 

Today Tina is showing about 30 gals how to Needle Felt at the meeting of our local  American Sewing guild meeting.  Should be a fun several hours!

In case you missed the Freebie tea towel from last summer it is still ready for you to print out and stitch. It really is still summer out there but heading into fall.  The mornings and evenings are cooler than normal around the lake.  A welcome change for all of us!400_FreebieSummerPicnicAntTeaTowelEmbroider a silly picnic ant on one of our nice Dunroven Tea Towels for one of your picnics this August and September.  Just print out the design and enjoy a few relaxing hours making a fun summer design.

New Christmas Freebie for you

It is now only 25 days to the BIG Christmas Day.  Whip up a few tea towels or make ornaments with our December Freebie design . I embroidered Santa holding a mini Christmas tree on a Sage Green striped tea towel.  He only took a couple of hours one night to complete.  A hint for you to speed your embroidery.  Thread a crewel embroidery needle for each of the colors in your design.  You won’t always be pulling the thread out and changing color.  This little cutie would make a great ornament too.  Just do the embroidery on muslin and finish in your favorite way.  FUN! I used our handy dandy Transfer-Eze to print the Freebie Santa and finger press on our Dunroven House tea towel.  The Freebie design can be put on your light box to trace directly onto the fabric – BUT – toweling is a little thicker and rougher than muslin.  Using Transfer-Eze solves the problem.  The smooth Transfer-Eze film put on your towel gives you a nice design line to see and a smooth surface to stitch on.  T

Cookies For Santa

Lucky Santa, he gets all those yummy cookies all over the world!  Our Brenda made a batch today and I am sorry for Santa, but those cookies will be gone very soon. Before all the cookies were enjoyed by us, I took a picture of them with our Santa Portrait Trio picture plus the Here Comes Santa RedWork quilt.  Both are great designs featuring the favorite jolly old guy.  Embroider a Santa design for your home.  RedWork is fun and relaxing and, happily, Christmas comes every year so there is NO RUSH to get it done this month.  Enjoy the holiday spirit while you stitch and get a head start on home decorating next Christmas.
