My newest obsession ...Earings

My newest obsession is making custom embroidered earrings! They are so much fun to experiment and they are amazingly light weight! I don't like wearing heavy earrings that you feel relieved to take off at the end of the day. The embroidered ones you don't feel like you are wearing, because they are so light weight. I made some shamrocks for St. Patty's day, that were real hit my family and friends. The initial ones you can wear all year round! Customize them to an outfit or a special dress! Endless possibilities!  Check out my Etsy shop for  pictures of the Initial collection earrings!

Happy sewing!

Pretty colors in grey winter + more

We are in a middle of winter and we have snow and ice on the ground. I Took a walk the other day and suddenly there is pop of green in my sight.  Don't you love that green house? The guy that owns it used to own our movie theater in town. He is very artistic and has a lot of handmade art pieces in his garden. We love to walk by it and admire his creations.  My kids favorite is a fountain frog, but it's frozen so I didn't take a picture of it. I have to say that green is my favorite color, so I know why I love that house. But those little flowers on the windows are so adorable! Just what I needed it to pick up my spirits! :)
 Do you have a bright painted houses in your neighborhood? 

I decided to listed some more items in my Etsy shop. I am working on the "meh" pillow. 
Half of what we say, it's HOW we say it!  True?

 Also it will be perfect, if you don't love Valentine's day!

I also listed my Easter bunny, if you would like to order one better order soon. They are $ 19.99 + shiping. I am thinking of making a whole family of bunnies! :) I can make them different sizes. That it's the bigest size. The pattern is from Dolls and daydreams.

Happy sewing from Zlaty!

FIGHT Breast Cancer Tag and Alphabet Charm Necklaces

I had fun this morning. Made this FIGHT the cancer tag for a friend and also I am gonna post it on my etsy shop. Everybody going trough that fight can use a little encouragement and support. 
The peep is to be made into a hair clippie. 
ALSO last weekend a digitizer needed a help testing Alphabet charms. So I volunteered to test the letter V or N. She sent me to test the V, let's say my youngest wasn't happy that I didn't make her a necklace with a charm with her initial. I had to ask for the letter N, too! I had two happy little girls afterwards . As a thank you for testing I got the whole Alphabet for FREE! YUPPIE! 
What are you working on?

Love is in the air.... or hanging on my stove! :)

We had our snow day yesterday,  we got ....wait for it .....2inches! I love how the media likes to create drama...they call it historical storm. We were supposed to get between 5"and 9".
It is much worst in NY and MA, they got I believe 2 feet of snow, which is a lot. But how can event be historical before it happens? 
I stayed warm and sewed. I made Rose flower towel topper. I am really happy how it turned out. I didn't follow the directions they had for making it because I didn't want to use spray adhesive.
What are you working on?

Happy sewing!

Need a little Spring? Look at that fabric!

Here on the East Coast in US we are getting ready for another Winter storm. What season is where you live?

My favorite season is Spring, can't wait! I love to go for walks and be in the nature!
A customer asked me to make her pair of the Heart Oven Mitts. She wanted to match her kitchen in yellow, rust and brown. She picked this fabric from my stash! I love this print and how they turn out. I used Insulin-Bright and a layer of batting to make sure they are not just pretty but functional, too!

With the storm coming, I hope to get to sew and watch the snow falling, out if my window! Or maybe make a snowman? 

Happy sewing!
