More Embroidery Work

There are things I just can't resist.  Embroidery digitizing is becoming one of them.  After the first success,  I decided to try creating a quilting design that would look as if it were done as free-motion quilting.  However, I could not resist a "fancier" center for the flower.    I used the "square flower" idea that I learned in a class. (Maybe from Lori Kennedy?) 

 I did a "double run" which means it sews all the lines twice.  I will probably make it a single run if I use it for actual quilting. I will also probably simplify the center of the flower.  

The two successes emboldened me to try something that I think of as difficult but amazing.  I have a fascination with machine embroidered free standing lace.   In the past I have used purchased lace designs, thinking that it was "way to hard" to do myself.   I think for the first time, I did an amazing job. 

It is sitting on a part of a quilt top so that you can see that it is truly see-through and lacy.  This is a present for someone dear to me.  I am happy that it stitched out well enough to be given.  

I can hardly wait to digitize and sew out some more designs.  If I ever get good enough at it, I may start selling my designs. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative
