Sharon’s Hummingbirds

FINISHED !!!!! Still not sure if I will make a pillow or frame it. For my first attempt I am pretty happy with it and first time really doing design positioning. I usually just place fabric and hope it works. I do have a new Husqvarna Designer RUBY 90¬† that I have never truly put to use so actually used it to move the design in the machine for the last three designs. So thank you for helping me keep my brain active in these days. I wondered if you could take a quick look and see if the first two are lined up as much as they should be? I was so intimated doing them and wasn‚Äôt really sure what I was doing ‚Äď lol ‚Äď and one more question what stabilizer do you use? I thought I had read ‚Äútear away‚ÄĚ and I used that but not sure it was strong enough. I usually use a poly-mesh? and just leave it in the design? am wondering as certainly by the end of the tail I have puckering ? I wouldn‚Äôt ask you so many questions except I think I will try another one and maybe use your idea of mirroring for pillows !¬† Thank you again for your patience and your responses ‚Äď for sure am telling both my embroidery groups of how helpful you have been. Have a blessed Easter weekend, Sharon

I’ve posted all of Sharon’s questions because i think a lot of us have questions like these on new designs.¬† I’ll answer for the stabilizer.¬† I would recommend a medium tear away sticky stabilizer.¬† I started using this after i had done this design and i love it for so many things.¬† I use the Weidner brand.¬† ¬† Suz

Bernice’s Owl

Here is the owl, I basted the T-shirt to the stabilizer so I wouldn’t have hoop burn on the black !  I think embroiders need to realize they can change up the colors too as with the owl, I couldn’t use black for the outlines!

That’s a great hint Bernice!¬† Color can make so much difference.¬† Don’t just assume the design you are checking has to be done in the colors shown.

Kelly Jean’s Peacock

Hi Suz, Good afternoon.

Your designs are just amazing!! I am sending a picture (as promised) of the Tiffany Peacock, sorry the picture isn’t better I think I am getting a glare off the lake.¬† As I mentioned earlier, you can see the colours are spot on if compared with the actual stained glass.¬† I am very pleased with how it turned out, and this one is just for me. Friends and family see what I have done and now they all want one.¬† I have also found that working on the designs (and e mails back and forth with you) I have also learned more.

Thanks so Much Suz, have a great day.

Gorgeous Kelly Jean!

Laura’s Cranes

Good morning.  Here is the latest in my adaptation of your awesome design, BFC 1409, Oriental Cranes.  I have had the background fabric in my stash half way to forever knowing someday I would find the perfect use for it.  Obviously your design was it.  I did some simple quilting on the backgroud fabric before I did the embroidery and after I did some design placement with a template.  Then once the design was finished I outlined stitched the design for a little more definition..  Thanks so much for all you do.  Until next time, happy stitching!

Absolutely beautiful Laura!
