Just starting a few more of the applique cushions, here is a quick pic once again need a nice royal blue thread to highlight the lettering have to pop out and get some in the morning, it's a gift for a friend and she leaves in the morning so will have to be quick!

Other news I have treated myself to a new Embroidery sewing machine, it's due to arrive on Tuesday and it feels like waiting for Christmas day as a child!

Once again Silversewer's expertise has helped me choose the best machine for me, and she also advised me of the best place to buy it! And I can't thank you enough for recomending Drummonds of Edingburgh the friendly service I received over the telephone left me in no doubt of dealing with a shop several hundred miles away! Highly Highly worth a call if your thinking about a new machine.


  1. Oh this applique looks fabulous, I like the way you placed the lettering so that the blue is beautifully placed!

    An embroidery machine is a wonderful thing! have fun!

  2. I am excited for you and interested to see what you produce using the machine. You can start embroidering straight away using the built in patterns. Get yourself a memory stick to transfer designs from the internet to your machine. You can store some in the memory, but I have files on my laptop with the designs in, its quick and simple to transfer them. I think the 350 also takes the cards, you cannot use high storage cards, so a stick is better.

    The first thing I produced was a welcone card for new neighbours using the built in designs.

    I hope you enjoy the new machine............

  3. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
