You have many fans up here in Alaska! I enjoy your designs and use them often! Thank you for sharing your talents!


What lovely patterns! I think those of us in the US need more good stitchery designers--Australia seems to have a jump on us! And, coincidentally, or maybe in anticipation of a new embroidery trend, my local quilt shop has begun embroidery classes that are taught by my real-life and Blogland friend Gran! What fun this blog hop is! Something new to see and learn at each step along the way!

Love the pattern for your little bird, and I have always wanted to try needlework. Blanket stitch is my best attempt so far. Your prizes are awesome and I do love anything designed for Charms. Your BOM lookw awesome, would love to be a lucky winner. Keep up the great work.


First time visitor... Thanks for the gorgeous pillow pattern! Love the Cobblestone BOM :)

How nice to "meet" you! I have a couple of your patterns already, so it's really nice to connect the designer to the designs I like.


Great stitchery and cushion. Thanks


Thank you for the sweet bird embroidery...I am in the process of making a new cover for one of my sisters bird cages, and I think that I just changed the design a little....this little bird is going on that cover. My sis will be soooooooo surprised. The blog hop has been so much fun, thank you for being a part of it.

Vickie E

Your patterns are wonderful I have made countless! I am always interested in what you'll make next. seriously. The bird stitchery = cool. and so useful in home decor.

Love your patterns, get them at your moms all the time. The hop is such a great idea to promote Mn designers. I enjoy the embroidery also. Thank you


Thank you for the bird pillow pattern. I just love anything with a bird motif. Currently, I'm making a bird lap quilt, and I plan to use your pattern to make a "matching" pillow. Your other designs are wonderful, and I shall look for them at my local quilt shop.


I love your blog! I'll be sure to stop back after the hop as well :)

How lovely, what a sweet combination of piecing and embroidery. Your talent shines through your work.

So glad to have found your blog! i picked up a copy of your book "Simply Strippy" at a quilt show in Feb and have earmarked several patterns to make! first one i'm working on is the cover pattern, which i'm doing in the new "Beach House" fabric. Hope you keep right on designing for many years to come! I'll be looking for them!!


It is so fun to faces with patterns I like so well. Thanks for the pillow pattern. Love your new patterns.

What great patterns! Thanks so much for the embroidery pattern. I love it!

What a nice combination of patchwork and embroidery. Your website has a great selection of unique charm patterns. The 'note' patterns are perfect for Christmas gifts and I love your shaped table runners.


thank you so much for the pattern. I just finished your starry nights pattern and loved it.


Thank you for the pillow pattern. It's darling! I already have purchased some of your patterns and am happy to have the opportunity to learn a little more about you!

What great patterns! The Cobblestone Lane pattern is a winner. Thanks for the pillow & stitchery pattern.


Love your books and patterns.....I have many!


I love your patterns. Cannot wait to buy your new book and make the Frosted Memories pillow. It is very cute. Thank you.


Your This and That patterns are great fun; especially your little bags! I am excited to try the pillow pattern that you have so generously offered to us. I do not do much hand stitching so your tutorial is a real treat for me. Thank you for being a part of this fantastic Minnesota blog hop.


Thank you for the bird pillow pattern and for being in the blog hop. Your patterns got me hooked on charm square packs. I have made several table runners with them...love them and look foward to seeing the new book. Keep the patterns and ideas coming. Thank you again from Texas.

Liz Boswell

I love the combination of stitcheries and quilting. makes a nice heirloom! great patterns. (mauh) Liz
P.S. french knots are evil...pure evil, I always have a hard time doing them right


I am loving this Blog Hop. I am being introduced to so many new designers. I love the embroidery pattern as birds are my favorite.
Thank you...I will be back!!

Carrie P.

Nice to meet you Sherri. The pillow is so sweet. I love anything with birds on it. Thanks for sharing your talents with us all.


Wow, that's really generous, thanks!

I've gone back to embroidery recently. I never knew what to do with embroidered pieces, but once I saw them included with patchwork that was it! Your wee birdy is very sweet.

I'm the exact opposite to you - I can embroider pretty well, but I can't draw to save my life!



I love embroidery and mixing it with quilting is perfect!! Thanks,Susan


I just love your designs. I will make this pillow and do the embroidered bird. I am so pleased to see the number of smaller, quicker projects. Thank you.

Robin (rsislandcrafts)

Your little birdie is very cute :)


I see a pillow in my future. Cute pattern.

Marilyn J Miller

I started looking for your designs after a bus shop hop that stopped at Heavenly Patchwork. I really enjoy seeing all your neat ideas. My favorite is the Treasure Box. I really love that little bag.

Nancy Kilen

Haven't embroidered for years but seems easy enough. Need new uses for charm squares.


I just love your patterns! It's so fun to "meet" the designers of patterns in my stash!! Thanks so much for the pillow pattern...very fun!

rebecca lydy

Your blog is fresh and fun. Keep up the great work!!

I'm just getting into hand embroidery work..thanks for sharing.

Good Morning from Alberta, Canada.
I sure hope we start getting some embroidery clubs and classes going here. I just love your patterns.I was in your Mom's store two years ago and really enjoyed visiting. She is so proud of your patterns.Thank-you for all your help and the pattern.
Happy Quilting


Thank you for being part of the "Hop". I have made many of your bag patterns, they have great directions. A quilter can never have to many bags!


Thanks for the bird pattern. I enjoy having a take along project and this will be a fun and quick one to do. Keep the great patterns coming.


Thanks for the pretty pattern and tutorial. I love making your patterns, especially the totes and purses. Can't wait to see your new book.


Thanks for the lovely pattern and tutorial. I rediscovered stitchery the last couple of years through some Australian designers - and LOVE it. I'm looking forward to completing your project and hopefully the frosted memories pillow too. Thanks for sharing your talents with us. I look forward to checking back in often.
