Made a design for my granddaughter's hockey stick bag. (There will no doubt be a nicer name than this for it). Nice to recognise your own bag in a room full of girls and all their gear.

My daughter embroidered it on her Bernina. Neither of us had used a Bernina for embroidery earlier, as we both used Husqvarna machines. And buttons for every action you have to take are in a different place, so we both learned something new.

What a great project for your grand.....how did you like working on a bernina? That was my maiden machine when I was learning embroidery..

I love the sturdiness of the machine. Everything to thick for my HV Ruby is stitched without any trouble. Gave my 3 yr old one to my daughter who often recycles old sails into bags a.o. Bought myself a new one :)

Oh my, what an awesome project. I wouldn't doubt more orders come your way or your daughter's way. I have used Brother, Baby Lock and Husqvarna embroidery machines and have touched on Janome and an old old Singer XL?? for friends, helping them with writing designs to their cards [showing them how after I googled it myself] A friend of mine has used the above brands [-] Baby Lock but she was always a Bernina gal. She purchased a Pfaff Sewing/Emb. machine when the Professional ?? came out and I looked at all those Icons you have to memorize what they mean for function---with my brain---no way. So saying all this----good for you and your daughter. I know you do such fabulous work so hope your daughter enjoys all this now. Your knitting is superb!

My first sewing machine was an Elna in 1963, Had learned to sew on my mums treadle and later a straight-stitch only electric Elna (1953) Bought a Brother embroidery one in 1992 plus a rather simpel digitising packet, Husqvarna in 1999 and a real digitising packet. And gave the Brother to my daughter. For the fun of it bought a Brother Disney 190D a few years later - still use that for the designs on it and for all those cards my daughter returned to me when the Brother died. Won a simple sewing only that went straight to my daughter and after its demise Esther got my Ruby till she had something else. well that did not happen so I gave her the Bernina . I have a 4-needle as well. So the first half hour or so on a machine I have not used for some time I really have to think Don't ask me how many times a push the cut button instead off the backstitch when switching from one to the other :)

Great job to both of you! It must be very satisfying fulfilling request from daughter and granddaughter. I know is is to me when the family request something I can do. I can’t digitize or knit like you and I so admire your skills but manage other things they like. Great work, now go get ‘em #15!

You are right it is satisfying.
You always amaze me with the quilts you make - both the quality and the quantity are impressive!

Very clever design. You both make a great team. Be careful, the other team members will be asking for their own bags.

Thanks. No requests yet, but Esther can handle that. What I did get is a request for a logo two friends of her made up for a business they started together. A detailed 4 colour one. Must have been fun drawing it. digitising it may/will take a lot of time. Well as Esther has a full time job I have some time on my hands, although I am knitting a for colour sweater....

Wow, such an interesting project! I have not seen a bag for a hockey stick like this before. You and your daughter did a wonderful job. Now it will be easily found amongst all the others.
