I think we've all had 'one of those days' and most likely will again. Thing is you kept on and this looks fantastic. I believe this must be my motto!-lol-see hear speak, no diet, no diet, no diet!--Great job!!!
thanks, to you and everyone for your comments and for making me smile.
I agree with Betsy & it looks like a fun towel!
I saw the pictures first, read some comments, and then read your description of the process. Admittedly, backwards thinking! Anyway, I did not see the "wobble" in the fabric until you pointed it out. It looks fabulous!
thanks, might try again on a tea towel that doesn't have stripes
Ugh! I've done that bobbin problem and it's not fun. I would have used the tearaway and floated a second tearaway beneath the towel. When you tear away, tear away one full layer and then the next.
thanks for your good advice - will try that
Looks pretty good to me the small wave is not much. At least you stayed dry and weren't bored.
thanks, but actually - I got soaking wet between stitching moments because one of my little dogs is currently suffering a balance disorder (under vet treatment) and was needing to be carried outside several times to answer nature's call and carefully supervised to prevent him falling badly - his weather - beater coat was water-proof but my old nylon raincoat (even though it had been sprayed with KIWI water proofing spray a week ago) was not - but you are right that I certainly wasn't bored.
love it i NEED this design wheres it from lol hugs
thanks - it came from emblibrary.com; when not stitching or busy with my doggies, I also like baking & decorating cakes so I figured this design was a pretty good & funny motto for my kitchen.
Nice design. That brings me a smile on my face😊
What a day! Nice design and great job...
What a story ! But I sure like the result ! Lovely design !
It looks great! " Just one of those days" is everyday at my house because it's always multi tasking.. my sewing machine and my embroidery machine are in 2😞 different RMS and there lays the problem lol . No one would know you had problems by looking at your great sew out. I always use a light tear away on the lighter cheap dish towels but then I usually use a light airy design on those also. /Lillian
Sewing & embroidery machines in separate rooms must be frustrating at times - I think that would send me truly crazy; thanks for kind words and helpful advice - yes a lighter weight design probably would have been better suited to the fabric - still it is a bit of fun to have this design hanging in the kitchen.
After all that , at least this design will be a smile !
hi crazystitcher, who says which always folds everything and it no problems with the embroider, tell a lie, with me everything goes also not always perfectly, and sometimes it also spins. nevertheless, your result looks good and cute :-)
Crazy stitcher, your designs are lovely. As it is quite dense stitching it may look better as a decoration after all the trouble you've had to finish this. As Chris has said, light tear away, is what I also use. Sometimes we have to have trial and error. Thicker towels I have used WSS with success. Sandra.
Dear crazystitcher, I only ever use a light tear away when I'm sewing designs on tea towels. That way it doesn't distort designs when it's being removed. Great job and stitch-out. Love Chris
thanks both for your good advice and kind words
Thanks for sharing your experience with getting the tea towel embroidered !!! Just wonder it 2 layers of Washaway ( used for lace making ) would work??. Lovely Design. Janette
thanks, will try that idea next time.
