I want to thank you for all you do for your customers. I have been with you for years. I can say 2010, but it may be longer than that. Your site is one that is at the top of favorites. Ordering and receiving the designs is quick and easy, which for me in the beginning was very important. Not understanding computers, your site was one I chose to help me and yes, they did. They didn’t make me feel like a stupid idiot, but talked me through the questions at a level I could understand. I always knew when I finished a session, the information I learned would be in my brain and that made me very happy.
Now, the designs. OH YES, the designs are wonderful and I know when I download them I will have designs I can work with.
Please know I love your site and look forward to each time you post. I may not be able to purchase every time being retired, but when I can I definitely.
Sending you Warm Hugs and Prayers from a quilter of 65 years, owner of a quilt shop for 10 years and an instructor in knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting and help with just about any needle work problem.
Thank you again for all you do. Enjoy and have a wonderful Mothers Day.

Thank you Diane – I have enjoyed our interactions too over the years!!!! Suz
I did this one for me! I stitched out the nest and twigs twice. Once directly on fabric then again on tulle so it would be dimensional. Free motioned the tulle pieces on top of original on fabric for thickness. Let one twig hang out at bottom!!! Then cut out a bunch of leaves and ironed them on like you had done! Wrapped finished scene around a canvas wrapped picture frame from Michael’s!
This is absolutely gorgeous Alta. I love the idea of stitching the branches twice. That method could be used for so many things. A really beautiful picture of the Egret. Suz
When I asked Alta if I could post her project photo, she replied:
Yes! I would be proud to share it! The money plant came from my garden! Lynn, my daughter-in-law, had never seen one so I made her a bouquet! Vase belonged to my Grandmother! They have cathedral ceilings in their dining room so this was quite at home on that high wall! She has given me permission to have you share it!!!
I think this project looks stunning! Alta, you did a beautiful job stitching and putting this project together and the frame you chose is perfect. I can imagine a lot of people stopping to admire that place in your daughter-in-law’s home.
This was the first design I ever bought from BFC and the first ever of this size in all my years of embroidering. It did not disappoint!! How gorgeous and detailed! The layers of colors, as if bringing the pheasant to life! The instructions were clear and easy to repeat, even for my first time of rehooping within a design. The stitching is museum worthy!!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent!!! I give this design 1,000,000 stars!!
Thank you so much Nelissa – I’d love to see a photo your your embroidery. Suz

Review: I love this design. It took me awhile to get the courage to sew out as I thought it would be difficult but it was very easy and the instructions are easily followed. It sewed out beautifully and I have framed it and it hangs on the wall near my kitchen so I can look at it every day. Absolutely LOVE it.

I’d love to see your picture Rhonda. I get excited when I see someone accomplish something they think will be difficult! Suz

From Laura:program. After my brain was fighting to rearrange a couple of the squares, I followed my own advice then I re-colored some of the individual pieces to blend in with the leaves and background, using fabric markers. I used Mylar film under all the squares prior to stitching and I am so pleased with the results. Thank you again for a wonderful stitching program!
I was especially interested that laura used markers. I’ve done this on my own things but have tended to stay away form samples for the website. Maybe I should get a little creative!
Thanks for you sharing your beautiful project with us Laura! Suz
Regina really wanted to stitch out this bowl. But she had troubles right at the beginning. The bowl Center was missing a bunch of stitches. This set was originally done in 2005. All the bowls sold very well back then so I was amazed there was a problem with one of the designs. I don’t think I was a big help at first, but we eventually fingered things out. I reconverted the design to PES and it has worked fine since.
Over the years I have bought many cat toys that are stored up in the closet while the boys play with the boxes. I looked at these beds for quite awhile before I finally succomed to what I thought sure was more waste. But!!!! It took them about 15 minutes to stick a paw in – like they were testing water. In an hour Duma was curled up in one and on his way to la-la land. It took Bronk another hour to try the other one. The next day they found they could stuff both of them in one bed = one very full bed. LOL Since then hey hjave either both been in one or taking a break and each having their own bed. These beds are worth the money -= they seem to enjoy them, so much! They are machine washable (if you can get them out of them).
No connection just a very happy cat owner! Who for once didn’t waste her money. LOL
Hi Suz, Have sewn the peacock and I am really pleased with it. As I love silk this has been sewn on silk. I used the old method of lining up designs with the basting stitched lines directly on the silk. A few changes to thread colours also as I just used what I had here; so he’s a special ‘hybrid’ bird!
Thank you for such lovely designs.
The way you have finished this embroidery, Colleen, makes it look so rich! This set, done in November of 2008 was the first large design I split and put together using the BFC Method. So many people have done our large designs successfully! And they report the process is really easy. Suz
This is the tree I embroidered. I just love it and thank you so much for the beautiful pattern.
And this is the same tree framed.
