Made two more baby dresses. The first one was gone before I even took a picture, the second showed earlier. I must say I like the number #2 the best. So here are #3 and #4 and a picture of the three of them.
At last I embroidered a few things. Our open air swimming pool closes on the 12th to reopen in May. The small group early morning swimmers end the season with coffee and cake plus a gift for the 'badjuf' (life guard). There are 4 on rotation so
I posted the result of 4 months Corona activities in July, here is the total of 12 months. I can't send it to my usual charity due to their policy. Well, it will keep till better times. And I started the next one :)
Last week gerryvb posted a design which I liked and stitched out on a bib, or rather on two. I embossed the background to tame the fabric and mirrored it on the second one. And changed the colours a bit. Nothing as boring as doing the same thing exactly t
Embroidered two towels for my friend as presents to her two sons. For their wives I did the cranes you saw earlier. The file was made from the example in picture two. She was delighted. The Latin saying translates as: Wise (is he) who acts wisely.
Was a bit in a hurry to embroider two more towels for my acquaintance and do some sewing at the same ttime as I am running a bit behind schedule. The embroidery looked good so I proudly folded the towel to wrap it up. Hmmm ... I had stitched it on the bac
Had to do two towels for a friend as gifts for her DILs, 'something with a crane'. Looked at a number of pictures and then draw and digitised my version of it. Tried out a crane on a wash cloth, then made the towels. I am quite pleased with the result.
I was asked to add something nice to the Christmas present for the over 75s in our church. I said I had made FSL bookmarks in the past. Showed one and then they told me they needed 36, but as I was one of the over 75s 35 would suffice. Delivered them
I have been sewing and knitting and had not used the embroidery unit for months. But two days ago I got the request for the towel and one for a bib, or rather two identicalbibs. The boy was born on Sunday. The boy's surname is Koning (Dutch for king)
Was asked to embroider an elephant on a (large) towel. I had one I digitised over a decade ago with now outdated Husqvarna software, I think it was system5. I wanted to make a slight alteration but instead re-digitised it. It fun to see what the effect
A client asked me to embroider a towel, which in her case always means to digitise something. This time she needed a vinca major, so I made one - pict 1. But she wanted the petals to be a bit more pointed to match her friends tattoo. I never use white whe
Too hot to knit, so I upcycled one of my dad's shirts (he died in 2011). I got a new sewing machine in March and need to keep the user's manual close, as the brand is not the one I have been using since 1980. So I push the wrong buttons now and agai
