Happy New Year everyone.......finally recovered from Jim's party which was fabulous....good food and good company.......the first pic is called Snow Made and will be up on my website tonight.....the 2nd pic is my version of sewing......Jim ripped 3" out of the side of his dress pants....you all know I am not a sew'er so, I digi'd a heavy line of embroidery and hooped his pants, using tear away stabilizer then ran the tracer to position the design right over the rip and voila......instant fix.....

That's amazing 😉! I can't imagine the work it took to digitise that. Sewing a seam on an ordinary sewing machine would have taken less time I'm sure. I know you don't like to sew. Love ❤️ Chris

Actually Chris, it took me about a minute to digi and another minute to stitch.......it would have taken me that long to boot up the Bernina.....LOL!

Very cute snow person. I can't even imagine how it would be easier to digitize than to just sew a seam. Wow!

Such a cute snowman. Great fix for the pants, don't think I would have had the patience to get it stitched right in the hoop!

Would have taken at least 5 times longer to fix the pants your way. What a hoot started my day with a laugh.

We are all known to improvise from time to time, right? I laughed at myself too, but it worked......LOL
