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 I had one I digitised over a decade ago with now outdated Husqvarna software, I think it was system5.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
During the last couple of months I've done a bit of knitting. The two green ones (colour looks grey-ish in pic #6) are made of a cone from which I knitted two others - I am happy to say I have just enough left to knit a hat. The wine coloured one is t
In my stash I had a couple of meters of this bubbly cotton material. I sewed two dresses last week. Picture #1 shows one that's size 18 mnth or so, it's an Ottobre design I've made several times before using remnants, old men's shirts etc. Pict
During the last five months I have not done much as far as embroidery is concerned. Years ago (Feb 1984) I knitted jumpers for both my daughters with their names on the back. See pict 2. Last week the younger daughter reminded me of it and asked if I c
Has anyone seen a good design of a diver? I was asked to embroider one by an acquaintance. She gave me an image but I don't want to digitise it as she always expect things to cost next to nothing since I did a number of things for free when she had Cher
