Yesterday I started playing with a set of embroidery designs that I've been dying to try:
I also tried embroidering on a different fabric, felt! I thought I might start out with a pillow, or some such thing, so felt was an option. I didn't use stablizer as part of the experiment.
It went a little wonky ~ not sure exactly what occurred, but I stopped the machine, re-adjusted and let it finish and the rest was lovely. I think I like the design for the bathroom curtains, with some of the other borders from the set nestled along beside it!
The original designs are "blackwork" on white. Like the classic "redwork". This is brown on cream. I thought I would play around with some other color combinations, as well. Be watching for more of the ideas! If YOU have any suggestions, please let me know! :o)
Well, have to work today. Yes, I KNOW it's Saturday, but I had yesterday off to bring DD to have her widsom teeth out and stayed home as I wasn't sure how it was going to go afterwards. She was GREAT! She actually went and coached in the afternoon! She's a bit more sore and swollen today though, since she didn't have ice on it or drugs during the night, but all in all, she's doing very well!
Hope everyone has a lovely day! Let's see what tomorrow brings, eh?
