Bathtowels - I had to embroider 12, 4 white ones with names of children (which I did before Christmas), the other 8 in assorted colours with the logo Perseverabo - I will persevere. I hate those small letters and half way through decided to emboss lig
We have had a few conversations in the past on how to prove a design is yours. I said that when possible I add my initials as part of the underlay, sometimes very small, but in the case of this shield quite large.Here's an animation of what I mean.
New paying member? Put designs in your cart? No panic, you don't have to pay for them. Go to the cart - and you see the designs you ordered. And the blue buttons for the different formats - see picture #1. Click on the format you need - I chose
A friend loved the notebook I gave her so much, she asked me to make her 10 for her "gift-drawer". The ones in the first row have a design that is in my EP-4, embroidered on curtain fabric; the second row are designs by me on linen; the th
Last year my husband bought me a book called Visserstruien - there's an English edition too. It offers patterns used in several fishing towns, including the one I was born. My grandmother used to knit ganseys by the dozen for my uncles and cousins, but n
Tried some more top-down and this time wrote down what I did so I now have a basic pattern. And my stash is reduced by 2 1/2 balls. That came from my mother's stash. Question now is knit a hat to go with it or use the yarn in another odd ball project.
Thanks to my spilling tea over the laptop and a new keyboard having to be imported from the USA I have done little embroidery, digitising etc. Out of sheer frustration I bought a loose keyboard today, so that solved my problem. In the meantime I knitt
Tea and laptops don't mix. Of course I knew, but yesterday I tested it out - accidentally. I tried rice which worked well for my DiL's phone after falling into the loo, but no mitigating effect on my laptop. And now I only have my iPad (generation 1,
I have been playing with the inbuilt decorative stitches of my machine. Since I have an embroidery machine (1992) I have used those very infrequently. First I made the two denim swatches, using resp. 2 and 3 different stitches to get an overall design
Reducing my stash :) Drew the pattern on the go. Cut out the body and sleeves which needed an insert as the width of the fabric was not large enough. Then decided to add a pocket and collar of the same insert fabric. Zip came from my stash too. My home
Little blue dress. I sewed a rather severe looking blue woollen dress. But there is a surprise, see picture 2. I think it would look nice with a white T-shirt and white legging. The fabric was a remnant my neighbour gave me. The pattern I used befo
Recycled lower trouser legs.<br /><br /> Hubby had a tear at the knee of his trousers. I did not want to make another bag, notebook cover or pencil case (my gift drawer has enough of those) so I did this skirt. Could cut 6 parts out of 3 of the front
Baby jacket. I had a small ball of baby acryl and just got going, no pattern, just a small t-shirt to have some idea of size. I started with the Tunisian crochet top part, then crocheted the body top down. After that I had 7.4 grams (about 1/4 oz) left fo
