Happy Birthdays, Happy Day and Thank you Marjory Peck

It's early May and I have much to be thankful for. First, today is my Mother's Birthday- Happy Birthday MOM!!! I love you. Tomorrow is my daughter's birthday- she will be 13! Happy Birthday Remi, I love you too.
....and yesterday evening I received MY SEWING MACHINE COVER (do you think I'm excited) (Sewn Spaces Swap) from Marjory Peck. I will let the proverbial, a picture is worth a thousand words, do it's magic

cover front(wait there is more) - the tree and raccoon are pieced beautifully, the "sky" quilting is superb . I just love the way the Raccoon is thinking about something... perhaps dinner or a nap??

the back, or the front, gotta love those cute birds and the Autumn tree. Marjory made a completely second pieced scene on the back/front of my sewing machine cover- So, I have birds and a raccoon. And blue birds to boot.

the lining

closer of the lining- such cute little birds gossiping on a wire

a little raccoon charm for my scissors- hope your drooling over that tonal wavy quilting- it's really amazing

a pin-cushion from the charming lining fabric- so sweet

Thank you Marjory Peck! It is beautiful and will be treasured.


  1. I'm so jealous! I cover my machine with a tea towel, lol!

  2. ah! this is gorgeous! sew happy day!

  3. Such beautiful work/sewing! Love the birds and raccoon too! Very nice.
    I need to make one of these for my machine soon. Will add it to my summer to do list.

  4. Wow, you are lucky! And you can use the summer tree in the summer and the autumn tree in the autumn if you wanted to. Then you could change it back to summer for the winter to cheer you up! I love these paper pieced animals too.

  5. wow, that is so cute! Lucky you.

  6. Two Thumbs Up ! ! !


If you don't speak up, I won't know what's in your mind…….
