This is really beautiful. I had to look closely to see the letter. Amazing.
Thank you, Mariana.
This is another great achievement due to a duplicate of the same pattern. It is very motivating to play with the design as well. Very nice, thank you for sharing.
You are right, it's motivating and a lot of fun as well.
Thanks for your comment.
Thanks you, Lillian!
Now who is the creative one! Who would'a thought? Very, very nice.
Thank you, Toogie.
Very cute and very "S"mart!
He he he.... thank you, Roberta!
No-one would guess this was a letter. I love the effect. The small circle of berries is a lovely addition. Great work!
Thank you, Martine :)
I need to come visit with you Lidia and pick your creative brain. :-)
I am stumped when it comes to figuring out ways to put things together and you always do such a fabulous job.
You are a great inspiration to me and I should imagine to others too.
I do not have software, but thanks to a lovely teacher, I know that I can do this with my bare basic embroidery machine too. Just lots of re-hooping. The frame would have to be done on my sewing machine as my biggest hoop is only 5" x 7".
thank you for the exercise I have had this morning in working out how to do this on my machine.
Lots of re-hooping is time consuming and I wouldn't do it. I prefer (and enjoy) to spend time creating layouts in my software so it becomes easy to embroider every project.
Thanks for your comment.
Lovely work as always hugs
Thank you, Carolyn.
Ganz toll geworden! Welche Software verwendest Du?
The software I'm using is Embird. Thanks for your comment, Angelika.
You have good ideas. It is looking beautiful.
Thank you for your comment, Dodi.
Another beautiful table mat. What software do you use that has the auto repeat function.
Husqvarna/Pfaff (3D through 6D) has a function called Encore; Embird has Auto-repeat, and other software suites offer the same function called by different names.
You usually have a choice of the form the repeats will take, circle, line, rectangle, and the number of repeats, 3 to 12 or more. When using the linear repeats you can in some software add placement marks - useful when you want to create long borders.
I use Embird Basic for combining the designs and use their Auto-Repeat function which is a great feature.
Thanks for your comment.
Wow!!!That is outstanding work done....Gorgeous
Thank you, Sonja!
Fabulous use of that letter. I like how you put the berries in the middle. I always think mats look better with something centered on them. And, of course, I am consumbed with envy of your ability to make such perfect borders.
I agree with you that the circle in the middle improves the total look of the mat. To get well-made borders, just follow the instructions given for the applique. Thanks for your comment, Penny.
P.S.: Regarding your question about the berries: In my software, I have separated the two colours that stitch the berries out, then I have selected two of them and used the Auto Repeat function to repeat them six times in a circle and placed them in the middle. All done in my software.
Beautiful all year long and especially in winter.
You are right, Betsey, this mat is usable the whole year round. Thanks for your comment.
What a beautiful mat..Wish I new more about my software to do this.
It's never too late to learn, Theresa. Thanks for your comment.
Lidia-you have quite the creative mind--This is so beautiful.
Exquisite and quite clever.
very clever and pretty!
Thank you, Sandy!
How clever you are! I looked at that design and saw an "S" (my initial), but you saw so much more. Thank you for sharing your work with us! --Sharon
Thank you, Sharon.
Really cute. Would love to give this a try but have questions. What fabric is this stitched on? Did you sew anything on the back to hide the stitched? Thanks. Sandy
Hi Sandy, welcome to Cute Embroidery. I have embroidered this table mat onto strong felt with soft cut-away underneath it, and both have been placed (not hooped) on top of the hooped water-soluble Vilene. I didn't sew anything on the back. Thanks for your comment. Hugs, Lidia
Thank you, Joyce!
Love your frame and how you used the letter "S" on the mat and the little berries in the center. Your coffee cup is quite the little model lately:)
Thank you, Nancy. Maybe I should buy a new cup....
Very pretty, and a wonderful way to use the font. Certain letters do make terrific elements for creative designs. You've done a great job.
I agree with you, certain letters are great to be used this way. Thanks for your comment, Maureen.
Very nice. I love your way of thinking. (I'm adding the link for those interested)
Thank you, Jerrilyn.
A very ingenious way to use the font! It is super. Congratulations for the idea and thank you very much for sharing. Amitiés de France.
That looks wonderful. Well done, love Chris
Thank you, Chris.
I like the way u used the berry font, neat.
Thank you, Jenne.
Adorable!! Very pretty and inventive!!
Thank you, Judy!
