I could give you the long, sad tale, but the upshot of it is that I didn't get as much done last night or today as I'd have liked.... so I'm showing you photos of OLD work instead of new.
I was going to do LOADS of machine embroidery today, in preparation for my class on Saturday. As it was, I only got a little bit done (and no photos), so will be back at the sewing machine again tomorrow.
It's SO MUCH FUN!!! I haven't had time for much embroidery for a while now, and I'd almost forgotten how satisfying it can be. It's amazing how something really simple can add so much ZING to a purse! Expect to see a bit more of it from now on...
I made these flowers about four years ago, and I still dig them out for workshops to show techniques that can be used with free machine embroidery. I'm inspired to make more flowers as "jewellery" lately, so have kept these hanging around the studio to remind me to get onto it.
