Not alot of quilting going on here. I have been playing with my new machine. I spent the better part of the day yesterday trying to figure it out and playing with the embroidery. And it has 68 decorative stitches when you convert it over to the regular sewing. I don't use alot of those, but they are nice to have. My old machine has a bunch on it too, but the one stitch that I needed a few months ago none of my machines had. It was the "blanket stitch" and I wanted to use it to do my machine applique on the Santa BOM. This new machine has it!!! So that made me happy. Now maybe I will start working on the Santa quilt again.
A few of you have asked about the Disney designs. It has 27 built in Disney designs and alot of other designs too. I know there are some very expensive embroidery machines out there that would be alot nicer, but I just can't spend that much money on them and I am very happy with the one that I have. It will do what I want it to do, so I guess that is all that matters.
As you all know the only thread that I have is Black, right now. It came with a spool of white bobbin thread. So everything that I do is Black. I plan on buying a few different colors along. Last night I took it out to Mom's and set it up to show her. She really liked it. Here is one little thing that I played around with. I know the black roses are a little creepy, but that is all I had. :)
I'm already thinking of Christmas gifts for this year. Maybe do some embroidery on the corner of a fleece blanket, pillowcases, towels, etc....
Mom gave me an idea last night of making quilt labels. That is something that I may try too. What I like about the embroidery is when you program the design and start it, you can go do whatever until it is done. Like this morning, I was embroidering a design, I hit the start button and got up to eat my breakfast, when I got back it was done.
Can you tell that I am still excited? I'm just shocked that I actually spent the money. I never buy anything like that.
