Carolyn loves cross stitch. I had an off-day and to cheer me up had a go at a carnation border for a 8x14"or 200x360 hoop.

I have yet to try it out but here's a picture from the software programme.

I am afraid I don't. I use 5D or 6D for cross stitch and know how to do it in Embird. Both have a special cross stitch module.

Very pretty mops. I use to make designs on graph paper, when I cross stitched by hand. I wouldn't know how to begin, in a software program, as I am pc illiterate. You do very nice designs.

You do it exactly the same way. The cross stitch modules show a graph and you let your imagination run riot and left click on the squares you want to fill in with a chosen colour.

It looks wonderful. I wish I had a large enough hoop to stitch this size of design. I think I am out-growing the hoops I have now. Maybe it's time to think about a new machine!

Thanks. It is always a challenge to make corners that look right. I started to digitise the top left two flowers and the two leaves. Knew the hoop size I wanted, so the it was a matter of lengthening the stem and copying, mirroring and pasting, figuring out what to do in the middle; adding the vertical parts and trying out some corners. Made some 200x260 ones as well and had to think again about the middle and getting it symmetrical. Nice brain gymnastics.

I know what you mean. I've been fiddling with the iris design to get different shapes and sizes. I began with a corner and a border section and copied and mirrored them into position.
