Thank you, Vicki! Stitching this doily out is easier that it seems, as you need just one colour of thread and you have to replace the bobbin thread only.

Thank you for your kind comment. If your software can do it for you, it's pretty easy, otherwise you can follow the multi-coloured picture above to combine the five heart designs together. The stitch-out is easy, just use the same thread and colour in the bobbin as well and slow down your machine.

Lidia...this doily is beautiful. I have a question for you. When you overlap the design using an "encore" feature what happens to the design when it wants to eliminate the overlap? Will the lace still be FSL and stay together once the stabilizer has been rinsed out? What software do you work with? I'm asking this because I have lots of Sue Box's designs and I can see many possibilities by combining them.

3 comments
lidiad by lidiad 12 Apr 2015

I use Embird to combine designs and then I use 4D Embroidery Extra to open and save the designs to my flash drive, to be able to stitch it out in my machine, as sometimes it doesn't recognise some elements. In saving the designs, 4D Extra says that is removing overlaps, but when my machine is stitching the designs out, I never notice any difference, so the design is being stitched out with overlapped areas but easily, without any problems and the doily is strong and fully FSL.
Thanks for your comment. Hugs, Lidia

seamssewcreative by seamssewcreative 13 Apr 2015

Thanks for your response. First, let me apologize if this comes through twice. I submitted a response and it just disappeared on me!
I use Pfaff 5D Embroidery. Before I saved the design I unchecked "remove overlap"; however, when I "combined" the 5 motifs to make one design I still received the message that it was indeed "removing overlap". Anyway, the design has been saved and I think I'll just stitch it out...it's just thread (hehehe) and this will certainly be an interesting lesson on what my software will or will not do. Once it's done I'll let you know how it turned out. Be blessed today!

When I go My Details, it says the internet cannot connect to the site and yet I can download from other sites. My account is current as I have checked and the manager doesn't know what is wrong.

lidiad by lidiad 10 Apr 2015

I have just seen Sue Box's site, clicked My Details and the page opened quickly, without any problems. I don't know why you are unable to do the same, maybe there is something in your settings. If you are using Internet Explorer, you may try this: click the gear icon at the top right-side of the page, click Compatibility View Settings, type suebox.com, click Add and close. Then try to open the site again. Good luck!

lidiad by lidiad 10 Apr 2015

Thank you, Susan. My software says 336.57m so it's about one third of a full spool, but I have used the same thread in the bobbin as well, so it could be more than that.
