We had lots of family obligations the last two weeks, but now I am sewing again. Well, actually, I have been having fun trying new embroidery designs. I learned how to download free designs from the internet, store them away in the proper file, and how to purchase designs and download those. There are certainly lots of gorgeous designs available out there. My machine has a 4×4 size field, and this works well for me since I only embroider garments so far. I like the pretty corner designs that people use for linens, etc., but I am trying to figure out how I can use them for yokes of Mexican tops or around necklines. I ordered some designs from The Embroidery Library, and was very pleased at their speed and efficiency. Here’s one of the designs I got:
The two blue workshirts are almost finished. I have the buttonholes in one of them and need to put the buttonholes on the other. After that, I can be a couch potato and sew the buttons on whilst watching DVDs.
