Been embroidering off and on for 4 years. Bought a used machine. Lady died and hubby also gave me lots of designs and just now beginning to add to the pile. I'm almost 70, with 2 "kids", 4 grands and 4 greats. Think that makes me kinda old. Lived in Georgia, near Atlanta all of my life. Been sewing since I was 15. Love it. When I'm down, I start to sew. Takes my mind right off my problems. The embroidery machine is beginning to do that, too since I started really using it instead of just playing. It's a Bernina, older, but works great for me. My favorite designs are Jacobean. Like the colors mostly.

Another "Granny", here! Welcome! I, also, live in Georgia, near Macon! We are having the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival here this week. The Yoshino Cherry trees are not in full bloom yet, but will beautiful before the end of the week, if the weather stays as warm as it is today!
I agree sewing and embroidery does help take your mind off other things, which at time is good therapy for coping (or surviving)!! LOL
I am glad you have joined the Cuties! This is a great group!

Welcome to Cute!

Here are a few tips and a tutorial link that were passed to another new Cutie recently:

Clicking "reply" will send the post to the top of the page.
Clicking "comment" under a reply will send the reply to the top of the post but will not send the post to the top of the page.
Experiment on this post of yours. Be sure to click submit under the box you fill out.
Welcome!

By the way. Flowers are for fun, saying thank you, and marking a post you read. Click the flower and it changes color. You can only give one flower to each post and you cannot give yourself one. You also get a flower for coming to Cute ever day. Your flower count will show up under your screen icon.

For more information look to the left on this page and see "tutorials". You can also use the left search engine to help find things that have been tagged.
Glad you found us....its all in time how you learn to navigate...you learn each day something new...WELCOME TO THE CUTE FAMILY...I put the community page as my favorite link..so when I click on it automatically goes here....the tabs you see are public/freebies/personal/private...

public is supposed to be for things that have to do with embroidery or sewing maybe warnings of viruses, etc....

freebies tab is where you can post freebies you have found and would like to share with others..you can find the links to other sites here for you to go to and download (dl)...

personals is where you find or post things that aren't really for public...these are where prayer requests, illnesses, family things, personal questions go....

private (PM) is an area where just you and the other person you are in contact can see. this is done by clicking on their name it goes to another screen..there is a tab under their name that says PRIVATE MESSAGE...by clicking on it you will be directed to another link to type something for them directly...remember only that person will see it. If you receive a pm from someone, you will see a +1 number on your private tab...this will indicate either one was sent to you or someone has answered the pm you sent...

in the blue area you will see the words designs/redworks/alphabets/lace/applique and cross stitch....these are the designs that our LOVELY VERONIKA (site owner) has placed the designs in..

off to the top you see other tabs designs by cuties or (dbs) is where our talented cuties have digitized their designs and posted them for us to dl...these are free and very much appreciated..

projects is where we post the lovely creations we have made....

reviews is a tab for how we rate different products we have used or have...

bookmarks is another area (before freebie tab) where other sites are for people to see and go to.

Community is where you are now..almost always someone or many can and will answer all your questions...here you find your new family and sooooo many new friends....here we share love laughter and tears..strength and courage to go through life as it is....

If you see a posting you want to go back to, up by the poster name their is a check mark..by clicking on it, you can save it and return to it late...
you also have a tabs that are my questions/my answers/marked...by clicking on one of these you get all the questions you have asked, or all the answers you have made, or the ones you marked by clicking on the check marks.

I see what you mean. The flowers are adding up fast. I think I like this place. Everybody is friendly. Not like some forums that I joined and didn't do a thing with. Felt like I was intruding.

Welcome, welcome. I love the Jacobean designs as well. At first I was a little iffy on them but now I have even purchased some Jacobean fabric for a future quilt project. There are alot of wonderful, helpful Cuties here. Don't be afraid to ask any question. Cuties will do their best to answer you. Make yourself familar with the site by clicking on all the tabs at the tob. The flowers you collect are just for fun. You give flowers by clicking on the green flowers in community and the orange flowers in projects. You also receive flowers. Be sure to check out the top of the page where it shows all the talented Cutie projects and, of course, the "Design By Cuties" tab. This is where there are lots of free designs made by, none other, than Cuties. Enjoy this addictive site and be sure to check these two sister sites out as well.
