Digitised and embroidered 6 patches for a leather jacket that will be given to the winner today. The firm that used to make them each year went bust and did not share the embroidery files. A new firm asked a hefty fee to digitise etc and as there will be
Knitted a present for my granddaughter. She loved it. I have knitted simple colourwork lately, but a pattern like this I had not tried for a very l o n g time. The pattern is from a book by Linka Neumann called 'Villmarks Gensere'. There is an En
I am in Norway, at my daughter's. Esther has regular sewing sessions with a friend and I was invited to come along. We did an apron using the same pattern. I showed Esther how to embroider on the HV Ruby using an old design I once made on the onl
My neighbour asked me to make two bibs and embroider them with a design based on the birth announcement. I did not like the colours she chose. I would have liked them grey-ish with less contrast. I noticed the last thing I embroidered on my 4-needle w
Neighbour ordered 2 hand-towels with their family design. Did those for the first time in 2008 and updated the file several times. I had not used that machine for ages as I have been sewing a bit and knitting a lot.

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.
