Gail PanHi and welcome to my new book Patchwork Loves Embroidery Too. What fun I had designing and making these projects. I’m so excited that the book is finally here!

As you can probably guess, I love to sew. The Just Sew Sewing Keeper is perfect for all my sewing needs when I’m on the go. I always have my sewing with me! I’d just made my first pattern with a zipper and was excited to be able to use a simplified method to sew the zipper and the vinyl into a folder.

Of course, the Butterfly Stitches Needle Case (for two of my friends who love butterflies!) is also a fun and practical sewing project.

This tote bag is made from fabrics I picked up on a teaching trip to Norway. What fun that was!

Variegated thread has captured my enthusiasm more and more. I love the subtle shift in colors. I could imagine a small patch of flowers swaying in the wind, and the Wildflowers Table Runner was born.

Do you have a collection of sewing trinkets? The Memories of Sewing Collage is for you! My version showcases vintage and new sewing trinkets I’ve picked up during my travels.

A lady who came to one of my stitching classes told me her daughter loves bunnies, and she was eagerly anticipating me drawing a bunny. I took the challenge to create the cutest bunny, and then I put him on a handy drawstring bag. We can never have too many bags, right?

Where I live in Australia, we don’t have snow. But we do love snowmen! This table topper is perfect for showcasing snowmen, and by using red I thought it would be great for Christmas too.

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is June, who says:

“I am very interested in learning embroidery, but have not figured out how to do it on something I end up sewing or quilting.  I’ve gotten a few books, but so far have ended up giving them to people who are already doing things.  What pretty things they have made.  I’d like to do that too!  Thanks for the chance.”

We’ll email you about your prize, June—congratulations!
