Welcome November! New Machine Embroidery Files and Promotion...

Welcome, November! Do you just love this month? I've decided that it is one of my favorites, and I believe Thanksgiving is officially my favorite holiday to celebrate. No gifts to think about; no major school parties to plan or costumes to create; no bunny, leprechaun, or elf that is planning to visit and bring stuff to my kids...just a beautiful, simple day to enjoy thinking about all of our blessings, with an opportunity to share a nice meal, play games, and watch football with family (that's a given with the men in my house!). I love it! Don't get me wrong---I love to give and receive gifts, and enjoy the fun all those other holidays have to offer. I'm just pretty keen on the concept of a simple day of giving thanks. It makes me happy. (This photo is courtesy of my niece, Cath's front yard. I think it is stunning!)

And guess what? My friend Dana emailed me Sunday night and told me all of her Halloween decorations were replaced with Thanksgiving decor. (Already!) So, that gave me inspiration to do the same. Why do I need to wait all month again? I don't have that much, but in a matter of 30 minutes, we were also Halloween-less and enjoying the simple amount of Thanksgiving decor we have. Yep, happy again. A few of my favorites to follow in another post! No, really this time.

On to other news: For those of you who machine embroider, I want to show you my latest files available at SWAK Embroidery! My sweet friends, Belinda and Lisa have been busy testing the files, and look at what they've made!

First up is "Miracle" which Belinda embroidered and turned into this darling pillow. This design has a unique story behind it, that I'll be sharing when the design becomes available for hand-embroidery, which is soon. Stay tuned!

And Lisa created this beautiful fall hand bag with the "Harvest Delight" design. I just love it as well! This design will also be available for hand-embroidery soon.

Belinda also created this lovely pillow using the "Harvest Delight" design:

In addition, I have a promotion going on over at SWAK Embroidery that I'd love for you to check out! When you spend $20 in my *store* from now until November 15, you receive the following three files for free---just in time to gear up for the holidays!

"Rejoice"-- available in two sizes:

Along with "Country Christmas" and "Joyeux Noel", both seen at the links. Remember you get all three for FREE with a $20 purchase until November 15!

One last item for you machine embroiderists...I am still looking for a few more testers who would be interested in receiving my free machine embroidery files in exchange for testing the files, providing feedback, and providing a few photos. If any of you are interested, please leave me a comment or email me directly. I'd love to work with you! Thanks so much!


  1. Thanks for the shout Shelli! I have to get pictures for Miracle; been a little crazy here!


  2. I am so in love with that rejoice pillow! It is so simple and adorable! Love it, love it, love it!

  3. Well call me stupid. I didn't get that the Miracle embroidery was machine done I did mine by hand ho-ho. Do you want to see the pic? Love the rejoice pillow.

  4. The Miracle pattern was created for both machine and hand embroidery! The hand embroidery version is what you have and it will soon be available to the public! I'd love for you to email me the photo!
