Here’；s my entry into our Borderline Brilliant contest (in which we are giving away a Brother PE500 embroidery machine)：？Mason jar “；labels.”；
I thought embroidering a label with the date the mason jar was packed and a cute design would be a fun way to perk up some fall hostess gifts (like these pickled tomatoes). If I stopped by your house， would you like it if I brought something like this， or would you just roll your eyes at me？ Ha. It was so easy， check it out…；funny pillow cases
For this project I used a free pattern for the tomatoboudoir pillow cases， which I found online awhile ago when i was collecting free vegetable embroidery patterns. I hooked up my laptop to my brother embroidery machine (the PE500 also offers this capability) and imported the file (PES format).
I used a font from the machine and the embroidery edit function to move the words and date around. I also used a circle frame from the machine with a scalloped edge， which is my favorite shape of the moment.
Then I let the machine work its magic， stopping to change thread colors for each piece of the design.
Once it was all sewn up， I removed my tear-away stabilizer， trimmed my threads， and tied the embroidered label around the mason jar with baker’；s twine. I had originally planned to remove the ring from a jar， place the label over the lid， then screw the ring back on， but then i realized that these particular jars did not have rings， oops!
So…； now that these pickled tomatoes are gussied up， I guess that means I really do have to give them away， doesn’；t it？ must…； stop…； eating…； pickled…； tomatoes…；

Happy Spring, machine quilting fans! I am Lori Kennedy from LoriKennedyQuilts.com.?They say you can’t count your chickens before they’re hatched, but you can count on the baby chicks motif to add charm to your next quilt! Stitch one baby chick in the center of a square block or stitch a row of chicks to create a fun border. For a more whimsical design, add a few flowers and an eggshell or two. Doodle the motif several times to develop the muscle memory for smoother stitching and to determine the best scale for the chicks in your project!
Obviously, lighting is a pretty important factor in every room. But we say the bathroom is where lighting matters most. After all, it’s where you apply your makeup and where he shaves. It’s also where you see yourself in the mirror every morning and again in the evening before bedtime. At the sake of sounding vain, don’t you want that image to be its best? Well, then you really need the right lighting.
