I am looking for these designs. I stitched them out a few years ago and would like to do more in other colours, but I can't remember where I have filed them. Hoping you can help me it's been 2 days already searching files and I'm at my wits end. TIA. Marian

I searched my files and couldn't find them. I did find some children, redwork, doing chores. Maybe you could substitute some similar design.

Just to add I have a folder I keep on my computer called designs embroidered. I make a backup copy of the designs I embroider in this file, This way I have fewer designs to search through when looking for a design I have already used. It has come in handy a number of times.

You might try "Blue work or such." on your computer

thank you.

Just a thought. I have done this before and it might help

If you can remember approximately what year you made these you can refine the search on your computer for pes, jef files (the one you use) that was modified in that year or before

Gosh, I don't have this design either. I searched redwork, colorline, bonnets, girl...lots of Sunbonnet Sue but nothing like this.

No day of the week. Just different cooking poses.

Marian I have searched through thousands of sunbonnets using every different name I can think of, baking, cooking, bakery, cookery,kitchen, cafe, redwork, modern, colorline, sitting, ladies, lady, teen, partial, busts, and more I have forgotten, and I can't find anything like these.

I do hope you locate them as they seem to be quite unique.
Good luck!

Thanks Meg, I've looked in all the obvious design folders DBS, PNW, Britts embroidery even ones I haven't been to in a while like Nita's place. It's a shame, I didn't wash my towels first and the colours ran onto the white tops (a silly mistake I know). Will have to keep trying can't let it get the better of me.

So if you are only searching your computer folders have you tried searching the whole lot using
then add the format you normally use ie:
*sun*.pes or *sun*.jef

alternatively try with the word bonnet - *bonnet*.pes

it will probably give you hundreds of results but amongst them you should find your errant designs.
Type it exactly as I have written it including the asterisks before and after the word and no spaces.

Might be under sunbonnets, or line work or one colour designs, open designs, or girl designs, or quilting lines, can't think of anything else at the moment hope you find them
