Back from Blog Break ;-)

I am finally back from my break. I have been busy in my sewing room, gardening and reading a lot. I made these outfits for my great niece and nephew. I used to sew and smock all the time when my children were little and have realized how much I enjoy it.The patterns were from an Applique book by Martha Pullen.

My etsy shop is named Pink Petunia Cottage , because petunias are my favorite flower. I put several pots around my deck and am enjoying them so much.
I am glad to be back and will be enjoying your blogs also as I always do!
Take care,
P. S. If anyone does machine embroidery and likes Isacord thread, I am going to sell mine for a really low price. I have probably 40 spools that haven't been used. I use Aurifil thread for everything nowadays. Please send me an email if you are interested.


  1. welcome back cathy!! i love your petunias! we pot them every year too!

    love your yellow seersucker with turtles! what a cute outfit!!

  2. Welcome back...oh those outfits are just wonderful!

  3. Love those little outfits! It's great when the little ones will wear original designs, but when they get older, their friends dictate what is fashion...
    I too love pinks. It's a great colour to attract the hummingbirds that visit the feeders at the cottage. I mix lots of pinks spells happiness!

  4. WELCOME BACK! Missed seeing what you've been up to. Those little outfits are adorable. Great work!
