STUNNING OWL from Urban Threads. This design is huge (I used my large 11x7 hoop) and it took over 3 hours to sew outr!!!!!! It has over 70,000 stitches but doesn't it look great? I have him/her as pride of place in my kitchen now on my oven rack. Love and blessings Chris

Thanks so much Vicki, it was the digitiser's work that made it stitch out so well. I just used my Husqvarna sewing machine to do him. Thank you once again, love and blessings Chris

Hi Chris (cfidl), I've put up the sliding scale for speed to show you. When I do normal things it's where it is pictured at Max. When I did this owl I put it on the middle line. Hope this helps out. Love and blessings Chris

What a Beatiful thing , you did not use it on a linen tea towel as some of them pull the threads and I use water soluble on top to stop pull threads, well done

Darling! It was well worth the time spent. What speed was that, because if that was fast, then it will take me substantially longer. I am hoping to up my game.

Hi Chris, well on my Husqvarna I have a sliding scale from 0 - 4 (5 strokes.) I put it in the middle at the second one. Thanks for the comment. Love and blessings Chris

pennifold by pennifold 26 Apr 2013

I agree with you Marian. There was no push/pull compensation problems when sewing this out and I'm always a bit wary about sewing on tea towels. I was very careful by the way, in hooping the tea towel. It's a pure cotton one, so maybe that helped. Love and blessings Chris

Thanks Martine, I'm glad you like it. It sewed out without a hitch. I went through 2 and a half bobbins and only on the last colours did I have a few thread breaks, so I just slowed the machine down. Love Chris
