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.
I wanted to share with you my version of the Steampunk Lady. It was my first split design I ever stitched. Although nothing I do is ever perfect, I was really pleased with the results.
Well, Lois, you should be pleased – I think she looks fantastic – great job. And I’m sure your lady will help encourage others to try the large designs!!! I like the stitching you did in the background too. Suz
From Jan: I love this design. I donated this one to a silent auction in support of the arts programs at our local community college.
I asked if I could post him here:
Absolutely. Before I sent it I went to your BLOG to see all the projects others have made and there wasn’t an Owlbert. I mounted mine on canvas. Owlbert got a lot of buzz at the auction and he did well. Jan
He is just gorgeous Jan – I love the way you have created him. Suz
Thank you so much for the prompt response and education. I didn’t know about stabilizer shrinkage.
Actually, for the bag project, the girl didn’t turn out unsalvageable, (see pic) I just wanted it as perfect as could be and to find out better techniques for future use as that design is so awesome and I will use it again. The other side, on the bird design from Urban Threads that I incorporated with yours, actually the puckering was worse, like I mentioned especially after ironing. I love the fractilicious designs and should have used a brighter color on the birds as well but always next time.
I’m gonna try the Black and White large Elephant on cork next I think for a bag panel. I downloaded the DST single design to my Janome AcuDesign and it converted it to jef format, I just have to resize and fix the colors in the download as they are all wonky and are confusing when embroidering gray and the machine says to use yellow!
I am so excited I joined the Janome 15000 FB group and then became aware of your website from your offer of the contest with the mask. Thank you for your generous offer of the half price designs too! I am a true fan of the designs and your excellent customer service is the icing on the cake. As an FYI, Fred had also contacted me prior to sending my thread order to verify address, such great service, you should be proud as a lot of companies are not so inclined or pay attention to detail.
