I've been enjoying my embroidery machine but have been somewhat limited with what I could create with the 4" x 4" hoop. So, now after two years of playing with this one, we made a investment in a larger more flexible machine, with a 5"x7" and 7"x12" hoop, and many other sewing/quilting features. It has opened up a whole new world of creating. All of my collection of embroidery patterns are for the smaller hoop, so it will take a while to be able to utilize the larger hoop patterns. Here are a couple newer patterns that I just got for the 5"x7" hoop.
This is a steampunk choker that I made for one of my granddaughters. There will be a key hanging in the middle.
I made a baby headband as a gift a couple weeks ago, and showed it to some friends, and they asked me to make a few more for them. This got me to thinking about resurrecting my old "Bow Dazzled" business, Here are a couple more that I have put together over the last couple days.
This is something that I really love doing, and hoping that it is something that can take us in to retirement in a few years.
