Train Christmas Tree Skirt

Hi Suz,

Thank you for sending me the train set again. I have included 2 pictures of the skirts.  The single skirt is the one I finished today for my nephew and the other one is his kids when they got their skirts last year.  As you can see it was easier to fold the skirts in half so all 6 trains would show but not take up all of the den.

These are really gorgeous!  Pop Butler would love them!!!!  If you haven’t seen the pictures of Anne’s father, please go to the train set page.  You can see him and read a little about him.  He’s  definitely part of history! Suz

Ready for Christmas giving by Bernice

This a shirt from Kmart,  I used my serger to lettuce the edges of the sleeves and bottom.  Mine didn’t get the crystals. I made 11 of them,  blinged the gifts.  Bernice

Not only does the embroidery look great, but i love the edges with the serger!  I’ve known people do this, but I love this shirt – it’s a perfect finish.  I bet everyone loved them!

I’m in Awe!!!!!

Marilynn and I were talking and I asked if  she had any photos of her work I could post.  I was so surprised and thrilled when she sent me these.

In her words:

This is a small sample of the many BFC Designs I’ve done. I give away or sell about 80% of the designs I’ve done over the years. I’ve recommended BFC to lots of others with my same obsession. Keep digitizing please!  Marilynn

It’s going to take me awhile to get all the links for the sets!!!

Thank you Marilynn for sharing so much of your work.

The 12 Days of Christmas

“Attached are pics of my 12 Days of Christmas quilt.  It was suppose to be finished for Christmas but I ran into problems with my embroidery machine threader and it had to go to dealer.  Also, I had a problem with the trees being too dense and the thread breaking but with a little patience I was able to complete it.

The design blocks were of a gold fleck cotton on which I used my Digitizer program to stipple around the designs in gold metallic thread.  The coordinating backing and red border also have gold metallic in them.

On the back I created a label with information to, for and date. I think you will find the quilt pleasing.    Carolyn”

NOTE FROM SUZ:  The trees are dense and especially on a background of more than one layer of fabric.  I recommend just slowing down the machine during the tree areas.
