I couldn't resist. Looking back in time, this was the very first self-digitized and self-drawn (from scratch) design we ever did. That was May 2008. The desing - no it is not a kangaroo but should be a Easter bunny - is still available from our site

Back then, it took me ages to get the stiches right and not too dense... not overlapping... no big jumps... etc. etc. Learning by doing.

What drives me cracy in digitizing is if the software tries to be smarter than I am. :c) Quite often I "fine-tune" a design, but if you rearange or scale some elements or rotate them, the software tries to "recalculate" what it considers to be best - even if it isn't, and you have to start optimizing all over again! Worst thing is a back-traced Satin-stitch with underlay where the "smart" software thinks you want to stitch the underlay after the Satin...

You did a good job then for a first, with different stitch directions and curved fill stitches, but you've come a long way since.

My very first design (in October 1999) was a logo. I have embroidered it on some 400 guest towels and hundreds of full size towels that were sold in a museum shop, still are, but I am totally fed up embroidering them. I hated jump stitches from the start and now am much better in getting rid of them.

I now see it's an old post.

Yes it was, comments were appreciated nevertheless. I had a comment in another project which linked to this, thus this old project came forward again.
