Lidia very nice and so beautiful love the autumn colours and love the way you put Rosie in she looks very nicely.Have been a very nice weekend
Thanks for your lovely comment, Stella. Have a great weekend.
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.
Great work :)
Thank you :)
As always: lovely table mats. The autumn colours are beautiful.
Thank you, Martine.
For some reason.... I love the table mat in picture #1....(I have it),
but the version in picture #2 is also a "Wow" !
Hugs and cheers, Roberta
Thank you, my friend.
Gorgeous tablemat Lidia! You do such a wonderful work!
Thank you, Yoriko!
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.
That's great, Patricia, go for it!
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.
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
Thanks for your help, Martine.
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.
Thanks for your comment, but I'm not a master at duplicating stitches, my software does it for me.
Thank you, Jerrilyn!
Nice with Rosie.
The both are beautiful
Tank you, Céline.
Like both, but the one with Rosie is my favourite.
Rosie looks sweet amongst the mushrooms. A beautiful job as always. Sarah.
Thank you. Sarah.
Thank you, Kay!
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
Lovely idea and matches your mug so well!
Thank you, Sharon.
Your embroidery is gorgeous, I have that designs and never thought to do that. You are so artistic in what you do.
I'm happy that you like it, Mona. Thanks for your comment.
Lovely colors it is very pretty.
Thank you, Mary.
Really pretty Lidia, ~hugs~
Thank you, Loralye.
So lovely Lidia, as always....your work is fabulous. I would never have thought of using a design 6 times, thanks for the idea. The frame is perfect.. Hugs..Shyam.
Thank you, Shyam.
hi lidia lovely job, do you always use felt on all these pretty doilies you make ? xo Doris
Hi Doris, I never use felt for my doilies, I use it for wall-hangings and sometimes for table mats, like this one. Thanks for your comment. Hugs, Lidia
Just bought the design did not know what to do with it until now. This is just wonderful...
Looks really great
Thank you and welcome to Cute Embroidery.
So pretty and love the frame you put around these delightful srooms....
Thank you, Vicki :)
Fabulous! Your frames are always so perfect. Nice thread choices too!
Thank you, Penny!
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
Looks Beautiful!!!Well done
Thank you, Sonja!
love it hugs
Thank you, Carolyn.
That 's another great achievement . So beautiful ! I love mushrooms , I embroider everywhere since I was a child ( I did a lot of hand embroidery )
You are an inspiration . Thank you for your sharing.
Much "hugs" and have a very nice week-end./Céline
I have never embroidered by hand but now I love embroidering with my computerised machine.
Thanks for your comment, have a nice week-end.
Another lovely...very nice use of the design and the colors match the mug...not surprised...
lol... I matched the mug with the table mat, not the table mat with the mug. Thanks, Kim.
Thank you, Suzanne!
Your work is always exquisite- just beautiful
Thank you, Sarah.
Love that you made a circle of the 'shrooms. Great job Lidia!/Lillian
Thank you, Lillian.
Very Nice! What is your base fabric?
Thank you, Christine. I have used felt.
Lidia- this table mat is lovely. I like the size of the mat and colors you have used for the mushrooms. They also match the flowers in the teacup. Your presentations are always so beautifully coordinated. Well done.
Thank you, Maureen :)
It looks fabulous, love the use of 6 of the mushrooms. Love Chris
Thank you, Chris.
Its stunning. This is a beautiful use of a really pretty design.
Oh, so lovely.. Nice, very nice! Lovely colors.
Gorgeous! Lovely design and great colours. I wish we could have a bit of summer before autumn comes around and I realise your winteer is almost there.
Thank you, Martine. Here it's winter already, as it started officially on the first of June.
Your use of the design - 6 in a circle - is a great example of what can be done. It's this type of inspiration I love to see in Projects. Thank you!
