Love that wristlet! And the embroidery is all too cute!

We used to have roses when I was growing up. It was so nice to sleep with the windows open and smell them when I woke up in the morning. Hope you get your rose garden soon!


Do simple things with great love is one of my favorite quotes! Between that and my love of Noteworthy, these projects are just calling out to me. I never really thought of myself as being into embroidery, but I did a bit before Christmas and just loved it, so I am really intrigued by these projects...

Mary W

Oh my gosh, they are all so cute! I want them all. Love the little embroidery projects and sure could use a new bag! Thank you for sharing!

Carol Campbell

the adorable embroideries are just so sweet. the pin cushion and the pillowcase are precious. and that wristlet is my favorite!


Oooh gorgeous! I have to admit that I have a bit of a bag addiction, I just love that I can completely finish a project in a weekend, and they are so useful and pretty too! Love love love the cell phone holder!


Roses are one of my favorite things also...Your designs are wonderful and you are so generous with your giveaways...Thank you for the chance to win...

Kathie L

I love embroidery and bags also. What nice projects you've presented, especially the bag with the border print. Thanks for the giveaway.

Judy S

You are so talented. And I enjoy reading your stories about your family. My mother grew roses. And I've decided I have this "thing" for bags. Kind of like fabric. Can't have too much, or too many.


Wow! you have been so productive and so generous lately. LOVE the roses on the pillow case, they would be so cute on a little girls skirt hem also.

Cindi Waldmiller

I love to quilt but I, also, love to stitch! I can't wait to make these beautiful projects! Oh! Another favorite thing I love is canning!

Lois Good

Spring, where are you? Well, guess I'll just have to embroider some lovely posies. I would love a copy of your new book!


Love your new books and projects, especially the bags! Thanks for the giveaway :)


Beautiful!!! I am especially in love with your treatbag! So sweet!


Definitely cute projects!! I love embroidery, quilting & bags. How fun to have your new books!!


Congratulations,your new book looks fabulous.I love the projects and the fabrics choice, fantastic.The tote with large front bag caught my eye.

Brenda Yohnk

I love the new book, I really like the pillowcases and the treat bags would make cute gifts for family and friends. We could all use a cute cellphone case. Congrats on your new book and I know what my embroidery group will be getting.

Martha Bicknell

Sherri ~~ I, too, am a 'bag lady' in the best of ways. LOVE your "The Bags Have It" book samples!! And the floral embroidery projects are a burst of spring during a long winter.
All the best to you!!

PS) Thanks for a chance to win!! How generous you are.


Your new embroidery book is a MUST HAVE! I have a perfect person to gift each item to that you showed-Christmas can be taken care of with your new book. And who ever has enough tote bags? Two more great books to add to my collection of your patterns.

Lynn D in NC

I love bags too, and love making them. I'd love to win a copy of your book, thanks for being so generous.


I love both of the books. I am finding my way back to embroidery these days so your book would be great. I too love bags and especially the large one with the center panel. Great stitching or knitting bag on the go. Thanks for the great give-away.


I share your love of Roses. I have only been able to get 3 bushes to grow in 12 years. (I live north and by the sea.) So it would be great to be able to stitch one instea then I could "grow" roses all winter long.


Congrats on your newest book!I see several wonderful projects that would make very nice birthday or Christmas gifts for this year. Please put my name in the pot!

Donna Hansen

I love roses also. Each year for my birthday my son gives me a new rose bush to plant! I now have many. I also love bags. I make one a month with a group we call "bag ladies" . Thanks for your ideas and patterns.


All your projects are just beautiful. Seems like we get more snow daily...hard to picture flowers just yet, but your embroidery gives hope, haha. Thanks for the chance to win!

Deb G in VA

I love your new books! I like the idea of a treat bag and I've been on the lookout for a new bag pattern. Thanks for the giveaway!


I confess to a bag fetish...but flowers, not as much. Love to look at them, not willing to do the work to have them. But I do really like embroidery!! My fave is the little bird on the towel. VERY darling. Thanks for the chance to win.

Linda Winn

You have designed my most favorite item in the whole world " bags". I sure hope I win because I'm ready to sew!!


I love your new books! I have really been enjoying doing more embroidery lately. Thank you for the chance to win. Have a great day!


The book looks awesome!


I love both books. The embroidery is so sweet. I am always working on a couple of big wall or bed quilts it seems. So I too am hooked on bags and small projects that I can finish and use in a couple of days.

Annette Crain

Oh, my, your array of new bags is simply charming! I really would love to make the "just for you" embroidered bag really soon. We love to exchange goodies with our neighbors, and I never seem to have enough paper plates. This bag would be perfect to fill with homemade cookies and such.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Linda LSM

Your new projets are fabulous...would like to do the cute little treat bag! Thanks for the chance to win.


Both books look great! The embroidery projects are so cute and love the bags. Love all your books and patterns, and these two are no exception!

Chris G

Oh Sherri! So adorable! I also am a "Bag Lady". I love making a new bag for any occasion. Thanks for the chance to win.

Kathy h

I think you made that book with me in mind. Love the quote, the cheery spring designs and all those bags! Just love them all.

Mary Peters

Love all your patterns!!! Would love to win the bag book. The wristlet is sooo cute. Thanks for the great give-aways.


LeAnne L

I really like the simple embroidery on these projects and I agree that you can never have enough bags. Congratulations on the new books.

Judy Willete

I, too, am a bag lover. One of my favorite things to sew. Love all your bags and would love to have the book. Also love flowers, so winning that one would be great, also. Thanks for the chance.

Sharon Lichter

Love the embroidered pillow cases. Haven't seen that idea in a long time.

Peggy Raverty

You brought my own father to mind when you were talking about your beloved grandpa and his rose garden. I can smell the roses. It's a scent you just can't get from a greenhouse rose. I would really enjoy making your embroidered pillow case. I would even iron it using a rose scented light starch! Mmmm . . . I can smell it already.


Love the little bag for homemade goodies-what a sweet idea. Little pincushions are a favorite too. I can see making a lot of your projects. I'd love to win a copy!

MaryLou Wahl

OMG!! Your pattern books always put my heart a flutter!!Flowers are right at the top of my like list and your patterns are there too! Wish I could pack more hours in a day to make them ALL!!!Thanks for your great designs-look forward to seeing them at my favorite local quilt shop!

Trina St Michael

Love your storey about your Grandfather's English rose garden with the path running through. The smell must have been heavenly. I love how you have incorporated the cute embroidery patterns into cute projects. You have come up with some great bag patterns as well.

Shirley Carlson

Love all the projects in both of those books. My mom and I have become true followers of your patterns. You can never have too many bags and I will be making a couple of yours. You have an amazing talent!


Love your flowers on all your projects, and I love bags, too. Such clever ideas. Thank you


Two new books, congratulations. I love the embrodiery projects. Embroidery is something I dabble in when I need a break from quilting and knitting. Embrodiery time is time to remember the grandma who taught me how when I was very young. I also really like the candy square bag. I just picked up a couple of candy square packs this past weekend wondering what I was going to do with them. I sure have a good idea now. Thanks for being so generous with your giveaway. I would be thrilled to be a recipient.


I love everyone of these projects! Your patterns are the best, keep it up.


Really enjoyed seeing all the new goodies you have in your new books. Love roses, but due to fragrance problems I have to settle for the embroidered ones. (: That works for me! I am really interested in your wristlet bag. Haven't found my perfect bag yet, but maybe this will be the time. Your generosity in sharing your creativity is greatly appreciated. Hope I get a chance to win.


I love your stitchery designs, and Fresh Cut Flowers looks fabulous, too. I'm excited about the pillowcase design and the treat bag is perfect for May Day gifts!

Tonya R.

Oohh, more bags!!! I don't think one can have too many. I just love the new wristlet, but adore the tote with the zipper top. That tote would be great with some scraps!!!

Lisa Mikel

Your new books look amazing! I love... your patterns! Thanks for the chance to win. Congratulations on your new books.

Dee A

Lilacs and roses are favorites but any flower is a beauty in my eyes! With a major snow looming in the next few hours, it was a treat to see your latest creations!!! Would love the opportunity to make them. Thank you!

Kathy O in GA

Argh! I love bags and roses, so these will be must haves! Maybe I'll be lucky enough to win them? Either way, I can 't wait to get my hands on them and start doing some spring stitching...forget that spring cleaning thing...


Looks like a wonderful book and I love bags and flowers too!

Emily C

Love that last tote bag. Reminds me of a quilt pattern. Very nice.

Kathy (QuiltMonkey)

What wonderful projects! I especially like the little embroidered items. Thanks for giving us a peek and for the chance to win!

Lucille Lozier

I love the Fresh cut flowers stitchery and would love to win them. Thanks for the oportunity.

Lucille Lozier

I love to embroidery and the fresh cut flowers stitchery is so neat. Thanks for sharing.


Your project ideas are lovely. I especially like the pillowcase and all the bags! Thanks so much!

Becky Story

I also love flowers. My grandma had a huge flower garden behind her house and also flowers all around her house. I enjoyed looking at her flowers with her. I also love bags. I hardly ever buy a bag anymore. I make them instead. I have bags of all sizes and styles, but of course, I am always looking for new patterns.Love your new patterns. Becky


Congratulations on the new books! What a great way to brighten up a Minnesota winter day. The totes are great too.


Looks like TERRIFIC books. Of course I want them. Stitchery is like therapy!! Thank you for coming up with great books.


I lover carnations and gerber dasies and I agree one can never have enough flowers. Your new book of bags looks amazing. I cannot wait for a cold Minnesota day to make one of them. Love from Burnsville!


I love bags too! Would love to win your new book. Your post makes me anxious for spring time and flowers! Thanks for the giveaway!


I love both of the new books, but then I have a great love affair with all books. Reading is one of my favorite past times after quilting. Those new totes would make great bags for books.

Jo Reid

Your talk of roses made me think of the roses up and down the driveway at my grandparents home. What a wonderful smell and site! And looks like I will need to make each of the new bags, I cannot pick a favorite.
Jo in Alabama

Sue Goodin

Wow you are going to make 3 people very very happy.
I hope I'm one of them.

Joellyn P.

Wow you've done it again! Your new books are great. I love all the small flower embroidery projects. It is nice to do smaller projects sometimes that can actually be finished. I also especially like the tote with the central border fabric. I'd love to add them to my collection.


The embroidery patterns are so cute.And bags are always fun to make.


I have to have the book of embroidery projects! Te bags are great too, but embroidery is my current addiction (along with chocolate, of course). My grandmother had spectacular gardens with different types of flowers in different parts of her huge yard.


I'm with you Sherri. I love flowers. I have been planting pansies and impatients in my yard already :-) And your book looks lovely. So many pretty designs.


Oh yeah, bags! I love bags, all shape and sizes! I have to keep myself from buying them in every store I go into..... I also enjoy flowers, but they have to be in someone else's garden, LOL. I do not have a green thumb like my Mom and Grandmother did...


how cute and fresh.. a touch of spring.. my mom was the rose queen at our house i miss her and the wonderful rose bushes she grew....
love the bags.. a girl after my own heart.. love them all...

thanks for a chance to win .. very generous...

Debbie Tschanz

As you know I love your patterns. The price is great and the outcoome wonderful. My husband is director of Powell Gardens in Kansas City and they have a good collection of plants. I am sure you would like to see it. If you are ever in Kansas City let me know and come by. I live in a log home right next to the gardens and the light is always on.


Alive all your patterns Sheri!!! Pick me!!!


Such lovely sewing and embroidery projects! Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

Pam Peterson

We should be neighbors - I love flowers (and I even like to grow them!) and have made many purses and totes (that I don't really need, but just love!). Why did you have to write more purse patterns? More to make!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful talent!

Katie B

Both books look like lots of fun - thank you!


I love all of your patterns. I always look forward to the newest ones. The embroidery ones are my favorite. They make me smile. Thank you!!


Love the new books! I have a thing for bags too! They are so fun to make. I really need to get on the embroidery kick too. I love having a nice quiet project to work on at night before bedtime.

Susan Foster

As s a flower lover, the announcement of your newest release "Fresh Cut Flowers," provided me with a Yippee and Whoo Hoo moment. Flowers, and embroidery combined combined.....well it's just double your pleasure and double your fun. I can't wait to get started....I will be hard pressed to decide what to make first....but think the roses will win out in the end. Thanks for the happy moments and inspiration your designs will bring to so many of your fans.


I just love your new books. My daughter would love the cell phone holder. Thanks for the giveaway!


Love the embroidery! Congratulations on 2 new books!

Rosemary T

I have roses planted by my back door so that every time you come up to the back door you're welcomed by their lovely fragrance. I love the little gift bag with the cookies inside - what a perfect way to present a gift to someone - thank you
