Embroidery - a new beginning

What I worked on Friday:
 A pretty t-shirt for Mom
 Quilted a table topper - using an embroidery machine.
And I stitched out this design that took 84 minutes of sewing time....that doesn't include time spent changing the thread - 26 thread changes! Yeah, I should have added an extra layer of stabilizer under it too.  Live and learn.

Beautiful designs....and love your quilting one. It is amazing how long some of these designs take...not counting the thread changes. Looks like you're having some fun!

Congratulations on the machine. I love my embroidery machines (yes more than one). Now you can spend hours looking for "that perfect design" buying more than you will ever need or could hope to stitch, and having an absolute ball. You will of course meet the many folks who say with disdain "oh but you just did it on a machine" - they don't know what fun they are missing.
