Welcome to the "family" my new-to-me Embroidery Machine!
Yep, I've been keeping an eye out for a good deal...and I finally found a great one.
Merry Christmas to me!!
I took my introductory class on Tuesday.
I then spent the better half of Wednesday's 8 degree, freezing fog day
learning about VP3 files and uploading software.
I even figured out how to download a pattern, convert it and get it on my sewing machine!
(This IS big deal stuff for me...as I'm usually a little impatient at this kind of thing.)
Oh the sewing wasn't without some errors...but I just kept telling myself what my instructor said: "Give yourself time to learn" .
I got things back up and going in no time. I mean what's a little tension anyways!
It was so fun to watch this little guy evolve...
I had a "dense stitch area" issue when I switched to the black. Thus, I messed up his little black toes and you'll notice his face is a little "off" LOL! But I'm learning. And our grand guy has a new pillow:
I just used some scrap minky and flannel to whip this little pillowcase together. He'll love it!
It has "warmed" up to 15 degrees today, but even Jackson won't go outside for a walk. Lucky me! That means I now have more time to make all the the kitchen towels pretty and enough time to finish the quilt I have on the long-arm before all the Christmas activities begin!
Happily sewing on this Winter Break of mine.
