Parasol and Basket Table Mat. Designs from Endearing Embroidery Design Collection by Sue Box Creations.

The roses at the bottom of the Parasol are part of the Bell free design. After I made the Bell mini-hanging, I searched for these two designs I had for some time. I had used the basket for a gift bag but never stitched the parasol out, so here they are, both of them.

Lidia-this is superb!!! Like the tip about the scotch guard-never would have thought about that. I, too, would be scared to set something upon something so lovely as this. Stuff around my house has to be sturdy but I want the girly girly pretty things myself. Your frames are wonderful--I never see any pokies. You are professional in my opinion and someone I'd go to for advise for sure!!!

Dear Lydia,
Your embroidery always looks so professional and finished off with your beautiful frames. I do wish that you would offer all your large frames for sale. I find that there are so few large frames on the net. and yours are beautiful. Just a thought. Love what you do. Blessings to you.

Dear Mona,
Thank you for your kind comment. Embroidery is my hobby, I'm not a professional digitizer and my frames are not for sale. You are right, there are so few embroidery websites offering large frames and that is part of the reason why I have bought a digitizing software and started digitizing my own frames recently.

I think I understand why there are so few large frames on the net. Digitizing is hard work and time consuming (not every frame is simple) and there aren't enough customers buying the frames, so the digitizers are not encouraged to produce more frames, they have to produce other types of designs able to generate an income for them to survive. I think that they deserve our help.
Hugs, Lidia

I totally agree, not sure how to go about helping them though. Perhaps reading these posts might help to nudge things along. Blessings.

One way to help them is buying the frames they have on sale already. Another way is letting them know what other kind of frames you would like to buy from them.

Gosh, something this elegant deserves special treatment. I was thinking that I'd spray something like Scotch Guard on it so that it wouldn't get stained. I can't see if the binding is a satin stitch or some kind of fabric? It is a nice finish to the m

Thank you for your suggestion, Penny, I'll spray it with Scotch Guard. The outline is satin stitch, thank you for your comment.
