Choon’s Purse and framed Peacock

Hi 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.

Warm regards,

Choon in Sydney

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.

Colleen’s Graceful Vase

Hello Suz

Well I did complete the wall hanging of Graceful Vase.  Have to say that I really should have repeated the top six silk blocks too as they are very slightly narrower than the others which I completed on cotton.  Was very determined and from a distance it doesn’t look too bad, especially if the ‘looker’ is not an embroiderer or quilter.

Thanks for the help

Colleen –  I like the long rod – it balances the wall hanging really nicely.  Suz

Beautiful Pictures…

Donna came across our BLOG recently and sent me photos of two of her projects.

The first is our Stained Glass Pheasant.  I love the way Donna used the small butterflies to make a top for the picture – it really gives it all a nice finish.

I’m going to hold off on posting Donna’s second project.  When I get a photo to post, I first find the set on the site so I can get the link, etc.  I couldn’t find it!  I thought it must not be in the right category.  Not remembering the name made it harder.  I enlisted Rick’s help and we looked at everything we could until something dawned on me.  I still had Donna’s history in our database so I looked up her purchases and immediate saw *A spring Afternoon*.  Yes – that’s the right set.  So back to the site – it’s not there!  So we had to start looking in our original site (we luckily saved everything from the old site – pictures, web pages, etc.).  We found it, but then found out it was actually 4 separate sets having different options!  This is going to take some figuring on how to add this to the new site!  We must have set it aside when we entered everything…that will teach us!!

Thanks Donna!!!

A very creative Stained Glass Wall Hanging

From Mary

“Here is the stained glass window i made with your stained glass birds

and butterflies.  The top is my own design.  I hope to sell it at a

craft sale.  I loved the designs.  Thank you for them.”

 

Wow – talk about creative!  Beautiful job Mary.  We have many sets of stained glass squares that this would work for.  The top can be made like Mary did or use pretty fabric that goes with the designs.
