I just wanted to share my progress on this design. I’m absolutely in love with it! Now that I have worked out the formatting haha. I’m so sorry, you must think I’m rather daft. I understand the formatting now, I won’t have any questions in the future.
It stitches out so beautifully without one single hitch. Not one thread break which I find incredible considering the level of detail! I’ve still got a few more things to add to the overall design but I’ve already had a lot of comments on the tiger. I haven’t made anything for myself for ages, this one is really special.
I will definitely be stocking up on more of your designs, I have a wish list as long as my arm! Sophie
Your jacket is just beautiful Sophie. I love the contrast of the tiger and the flowers – strength and beauty. Suz
Finally finished my handbag (template from BFC1250) using BFC1374-11 with Glitter. Mirror-imaged BFC1374-12 and adjusted the size to fit the pocket piece for the back. I used brown glitter from the first set of 14 colors that I ordered though I was undecided – all the colors were so pretty! Fabric used was antique satin from Sylvia. My zipper was a bit too long and I ended up with bag having a slightly lop-sided top 🙂
Thanks, Suz, for the beautiful designs and instructions for the bag. How do you find time to embroider and sew out all the projects for the designs you digitize? It took me more than 2 days to finish my handbag and I had the instructions for the bag which I had made before.
Would love to ‘show off’ the Stained Glass Peacock that I had posted to our Group photo album in March. I used Aurora Crystalina and Silver Iris angelina fibres but as I didn’t have Cobalt Blue fibres, I cut very fine strips of the film to bond them together. The film is easier to use but the fibres have the extra sparkle to make the design ‘pop’. With your clear instructions and photos, the designs were easy to put together and I enjoyed watching the pieces sew out.
Ching Chou’s dragonflies stitch out beautifully, thank you Suz. They’re on homespun with cutaway stabiliser, with batting quilted to the back and front of the tote. Lining, with pockets is cream polyester brocade. Lorraine
Here are a couple pictures of my recently-completed bag. A fellow sewist saw it at the last Embroidery in Motion meeting when I took it for show-n-tell. She called me a few days later & said she bought the pattern from you because she liked mine so well. I’m now working on the Kokopelli bag. I just finished the bag part — very gorgeous. Now for the lining. I bought all the threads for that one from you all. Such gorgeous colors! The bag will be a gift for my DIL-to-be. She & my son will be married in September & plan to start a family right away. So Kokopelli, being a fertility god, will perhaps be of some assistance!
Thanks for great products & greater service!
I hope you have loads of Grandkids by now Connie!!! Suz
