"D" Is For Dots, "E" Is For Ellie

As I've mentioned before, those little blog hops motivate me to try new applique and embroidery. Yes, I know that is one chunky looking "E", but I wanted it to stand out on the pink applique piece with yellow dots. Just don't look too close....I'm new at this embroidery and applique thing.

I ordered a silicone sheet from Connecting Threads so I could work on learning how to applique things. While browsing through all the fun stuff over in their online store, I saw my favorite Martinelli rotary cutter. My other one had broken (I used it a lot) and I hadn't found another one until...whoohoo....
I love this little cutter (if you were here, you would have seen me do a happy dance--it wasn't very graceful, but at least I was happy.) Thank you Connecting Threads for making my day!

By the way, it's
 3 days until....


  1. Nothing is better than getting a package from Connecting Threads, whatever it is!

  2. As an experienced writer of the letter "e", I can say-you done good! Looking forward to "Dots".

  3. I love your little "e"! I have never even seen a rotary cutter like the one you bought...and I have never seen your happy I see a youtube video being made in the future of said happy dance?Enjoy your day!

  4. Wow, that's some cutter! Gonna have to go check that out!

  5. I love your E, it's elegant and looks very nice. I've never seen a rotary cutter like this, it looks like cutting around the corner ;-)
    I'm looking forward to the Dotsbloghop, can't wait for the fun to start, I'm also very interested in what you did with the dots and how many you made.


Comments are always appreciated!
