You are invited to participate in an Easter Egg Hunt!  We have hidden 5 Easter Egg graphics in Eileen’s blog posts.

Eileen's Machine Embroidery Blog

If you find all the Easter Eggs, you’ll receive 3 free embroidery designs!

Eileen's Machine Embroidery Blog

How to play:
Use the clues below to locate the blog post where each Easter egg is hidden. When you find the Easter egg, click on the image so you can get credit for finding it!

Once you find all 5 Easter eggs, you’ll be taken to a page to download your free designs!  Have fun!

 

Clues:

  1. Eileen discusses an unexpected use for a toilet brush.
  2. Once you read Eileen’s tutorial you may find yourself zipping over to your favorite sewing store to pick up some of these. She even gives you two free designs – one in a 7” length and one in a 9” length.
  3. You might have to avoid this carbohydrate in your diet but who doesn’t love fries, mashed potatoes, potato chips, bread and pasta?
  4. Eileen is willing to wager most of us wear this type of fabric four out of seven days.
  5. Hans brings Jan to safety with the use of Madeira thread.

 

Tips:
Use the search box on Eileen’s Machine Embroidery blog for key words or phrases.

Here’s your assignment this week:

What holiday inspires you most to embroider, sew and craft?  This week everyone is a winner when they go hunting for Easter Eggs!
The winners of last week’s assignment answered the following question:I’m fortunate to have friends and coworkers that challenge me to try new things – like crazy quilting.  Who in your life pushes you to be your best and try new things?  What activities have they encouraged you to try that you discovered you loved?  Post your comments and one random winner will be selected to win a $25 gift certificate to the Designs in Machine Embroidery website.The winner is: Terri – “I have a sewing buddy, Ellen and we meet weekly. We both challenge each other to try new things. Last fall, we were working with wool in our projects…currently we are working with crazy quilting by hand. Now, I’ll have a new challenge to throw at her– crazy quilting using our sewing machines and more specifically using the embroidery function of our machines!”

      • I think audioswap needs more categories. I realize the songs are broke down by genres. It would be helpful if there is a mood category. For example: If someone is looking for a song pertaining sadness it would be easier to find. All you would have to do is click on the mood your looking for and it will give a list of songs.

    I don’t need a holiday to get me inspired to embroider and sew. All I have to do is see what everyone else is working on and I get inspired. I also get soooo many ideas from Eileen’s blogs and the webinars. They really get me going. I try not to miss any and I sometimes watch them over and over. So I guess my answer to your question would be that I love to embroider for every holiday. Thank you for the Easter egg hunt. It was fun. And I always enjoy getting free designs. Hope everyone has a blessed holiday.
