sneakrets ... sneeky secrets

I've been working on some sneaky, silly secret pillows for valentines day. I call them my "sneakrets". I use scraps of fabric, old blue jeans, and interesting shirts I find at goodwill, and machine embroiderer them. I love using all the different colors of thread, it feels like painting with thread. And trying to freehand stich with the machine is a lot of fun... I feel a little like a kid, learning how to write, and it feels a lot little like doodling. A couple of these should be up in my Etsy store sometime soon.
