My Serenity wall hanging.

For this wall hanging, I have used a freebie called Arbour, from Creative Floral Gardens and a smaller floral design, called Flower 1, at the bottom, from the same collection. The frame is called Versatile doily 4. All the designs are from Sue Box.
I had a problem with my machine which stopped working due to overloading. It turned the bobbin case in such a way that I couldn't continue embroidering and the needle was blocked as well. After switching the machine off, and trying a few times, I have been able to resume embroidering and when it was finished, I noticed that the following colours moved a little.... Well, I like this project just the same.
Hugs, Lidia

I love all the work you display. I have so many of Sue Box's designs and didn't know how to use them...you certainly challenge me. What font do you use? Do you use the same fabric on all your projects? Do you use a batting? I use Madeira thread a lot, too, and I like working with silk dupioni or linens. Thanks for sharing your ideas. Be blessed!!

The font is called Nimbus and comes from my 4DEmbroidery Extra software. For this wall-hanging, I have used felt at the front with soft cut-away underneath. I have used cotton in the past but now I prefer felt. For table mats either cotton or felt. For doilies, I have tried different types of fabrics now I use 100% cotton. I don't use batting. I have been using rayon thread from Robison-Anton for a number of years but now I'm using Madeira more and more. Thank you for your comment.
Hugs, Lidia

Thanks for answering all my questions. Since I have the 5D Suite for Pfaff I discovered that I have the Nimbus font there! It's one I haven't used yet but I will now that I've seen how pretty it is. Guess I should stitch out some samples of the various fonts to see what a resource I already have. My mind is churning with ideas already!

Oh this is so lovely, these designs are temping me. Didn't see any color shifting so you file that idea under 'stuff happens' and never tell a sole. I'm learning to adapt and not be so critical of my own work. It's only taken me FOREVER to reach this point. Goodness that makes me old! hugs Leaha

This time I have used a doily from Sue Box as a frame, as it was the shape I liked best for this wall hanging, I don't append all the wall-hangings I make to my walls, and I don't keep all of them either, I keep a few and a gift a few.
Thank you for your comment.

Beautiful, as usual. Are you stitching onto felt, or what is the fabric you use? It is stunning, whatever it is.

The garden bench looks very inviting, and does make a serene setting. Your walls must be a beautiful sight with all your hangings displayed. Gorgeous!

What type and color of thread do you use for the frame/border? It seems you use this one often, and it is so elegant.

lidiad by lidiad edited 16 Jul 2015

For the frame/border I have used Col. 1055, Cream, from Madeira Thank you for your comment!
Hugs, Lidia
P.S.: I forgot to mention that the thread is rayon.

Thanks for the thread info. BTW - I have corrected my typos. Wish I could figure out how to turn off that auto-complete feature. It only makes things worse!
