This one looks like a REALLY fun road trip. You've done a wonderful job. Keep adding here so we can follow you easily, and warn us when you are going to pull over to get gas!

Hi,
If you wouldn't mind, I would like to know the name of the colors, in each color change, you used for your Philadelphia design, please. I didn't get a color chart and my colors show up horrible. Yours came out so pretty.
I stitched the first one, twice, on 2 totes. It stitched beautifully.

My brain must be the only thing frozen here (its so hot!)
I found the colors in the pdf, but this is how my pes showed. Thank you anyway, yours looks SO_O_O much better than this!

Toogie, my colors on the Ellisimo Gold never show like the color charts do. It reads .pes format and I always have to sit and put in the colors I want before I begin to sew or have that color chart looking me in the face.

Oh toogie just seeing this will send you a P.M. Thank you both. Yes peafarm sometimes it does show like a different format I think DST. I always go by what the photo shows. Or, what you can see of it. In this particular one I can see nine of the 10 on my PDF. Also, try to get in the brightest light possible with thread and PDF in hand. What color fabric you put it on makes a difference too. Good luck ladies.

Your stitchouts are lovely. I'm collecting these, but don't know when I'll get the chance to stitch them. I hope you don't mind if I save your pictures with the design files to remind me of what I have. When I do get to sew again, I need to finish the previous roadtrip first. I've only done the first 2 of those designs. Sigh!!!

Beauties again---might have asked this before but wondering what fabric 'cotton'? Also, what stabilizer. Yours looks perfect with no puckering.

tlp22 by tlp22 17 Jul 2016

Oh thanks so much. The first fabric is grunge by Moda. The 2nd is just a pale blue cotton solid. My stabilizer is 2 layers of Cut away from Allstitch Product # is C-030 let me go look what is actually called. OK... C series, 3oz. and mine are 9x12 they work in my 5x7 hoop. I have had great results with it. You just have to make sure and pull them taught and tighten your hoop so it doesn't stray while stitching. Good Luck hope to see your pictures soon.

peafarm by peafarm 30 Jul 2016

You probably won't see any I've done--at least in a long while but thank you for your info. I never know when someone uses double layers or how thick one layer actually is. Your outcome is perfect.

tlp22 by tlp22 03 Aug 2016

Thanks again.Hope to see yours soon. Just one a day and you'd be caught up in know time.

it's great, on what kind of project did you embroider the design?

tlp22 by tlp22 17 Jul 2016

Thanks! Did you mean stabilizer?

gerryvb by gerryvb 18 Jul 2016

no I meant where did you use the design for, on what kind of project, like a pillow or wall hanging....?

tlp22 by tlp22 18 Jul 2016

Well, I don't know. This is a mystery stitch. So she will give us a few options or we can do our own thing. I like the pillow covers. I use them in my sewing room.

tlp22 by tlp22 18 Jul 2016

This is an 8 week project.
