My new, round table mat.

Mushroom design (six times) from Woodland Treasures by Sue Box, my frame.
Hugs, Lidia
P.S.: Patricia (109) was wondering if Rosie, the free design from this collection, could be added to the Mushroom layout, so I have tried in my software. I think that Rosie fits nicely, just deleting one mushroom design behind her. I haven't modified Rosie's colours as I was only trying the new layout.

As always - just beautiful and very professional. Question - do you do your frames with your software? I'm learning "sew" much by seeing your projects. Thanks for sharing your ideas. Avis

Embroidery is my hobby and this is one of the few frames I have digitized using my software. Thanks for your comment, Avis.

Lidia, it looks lovely. Came in looking for your Mug Rug to see what it looked like - I had forgotten. Now that I have software, must try to do this.
Thanks Pat

Most software have a repeat function - under different names, like 'Encore', auto-repeat, etc) and allow you to do different numbers of repeats and different shapes, like line, circle, squares or rectangles. Once you know how to use it, it is fast and easy, and the results can be quite stunning.

seamssewcreative by seamssewcreative 15 Oct 2015

Being encouraged by Lidia, I have played with my Pfaff 5D software using any number of designs. It's fun to take a letter and use the encore feature...especially if it is only one colour and a fairly open design. Depending on how many repeats you use and what size hoop you put it in I come up with many options. No need to buy another design; just manipulate what you already have. Learning the software is sometimes overwhelming, but giving myself "play" time certainly makes me more comfortable. Hope others try what they already have in hand. Blessings to you all. Avis

I think you are a master at duplicating stitches and putting it all together into a wonderful project. Wished I lived near you--could learn soooooo much and possible be energized.

Hi Lidia, love what you have done and would like to try it myself.
But I am a bit technologically challenged at times. May I know what is the diameter of the rug, please? Or rather the inside diameter of the mushrooms. Please?
So that I have an idea where to start. I will have to do multiple hoopings as I do not have the software to put them all together. That doesn't faze me as I done it a few times with different designs.
Looking at your piece again, it appears to be the size of a bread and butter plate. But I cannot remember how big the mushrooms are as I haven't stitched them out as yet.
I wonder would Rosie look good with the mushrooms or would the scale be all wrong, again, I haven't stitched out the mushrooms.
I love all the work you do. You are very clever. The thing that puzzles is me is 'how' to put the elements together to make a scene.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Patricia, thanks for your comment. I have made the mushroom tablemat in one hooping and it fits a 200x200mm (8x8") hoop. One mushroom design measures 60.4x54.8mm (2.38x2.16". The empty space inside the six mushrooms in a circle measures 50mm (2") approx.
Your wondering if Rosie would fit together with the mushrooms made me open my software (Embird) and try. Well, I was surprised to see that the smaller Rosie design fits in the middle nicely, I just deleted one of the mushroom designs behind her and I love the result. I'll upload a screen-print below the photo in my post.
I couldn't do my layouts without a software. Maybe you could download one the free embroidery softwares on the net and try if you can do it. Hugs, Lidia

Very cute! Your satin stitching is always so smooth and even--Even the design choice matches your china cup. Wondering if you put a CD in between and how??? and not breaking a needle. Anyways my trivial question when really wanted to say once again--I LOVE IT!!!

I haven't put a CD in between, I have used strong felt and soft cut-away at the back. Thanks for your comment
