It’s been a long time finishing! Surgery and recovery got in the way. But I’m so pleased with the design.🤩 Thank you Suz Makalinaw for this terrific design. My daughter is going to love it! Had to put glass over it so her kitties don’t destroy it.😉sorry about the glare😶

Sharon’s wonderful Stitched Dragons

We have recently joined with Delight of Delight’s Fantasy Art to create designs from her art.  Sharon has made a wonderful start with  her stitchouts!  When she posted them on our Facebook group I asked if I could share them here. 🙂

Renee and Skye’s Outer Space

We were discussing constellations and outer space and this was written by Renee:

These include some designs from elsewhere on here also, but this was very special. Skye had a dream one night, and told me about it, I wrote it down. THE NEXT DAY you posted the outer space designs and when Skye looked at them she said YES GRAMA! Those are the pictures of my dream! So we made her ‘book’. The ‘fire’ one she designed herself. And she was 3.5 at the time. 🙂 This is the Outer Space designs.

Renee, Skye and I have been friends for many years through BFC.  Skye is off to college this year!!!

I think we can take a great idea to help our children develop their creative size.  I can think os several ways to do this.  One is to look through designs with your child and ask for their thoughts and opinions.  Make note of ones they really like and what they say about them.  Another is to give them a topic – might be pets, family – or Outer space – and look through designs with them for things that express the topic.  Again record their choices and write down what they say.  You can make a wall hanging, or a book of the results.  It would be great to look through as they developed new ideas!

Tiny’s Princess Kaïulani”s Poppies

Hello,

I’m an embroidery fan from The Netherlands for 2 years now and finally dare to make one of those fine projects I see on your website.

After learning about embroidery en purchase a machine (Pfaff Creative Vision) and lots of try outs I now finished a quilt from your site.

I thought maybe you like to see that even in Europe people love your artistic projects.

So herebye…Kind regards

Tiny from Eindhoven (The Netherlands)
It is beautiful Tiny!!!!!  This has always been one of my favorites.  I have it hanging at the top of my second floor stairs.  Thanks so much for the photos of your project!    Suz

Jim’s Four Seasons and Steampunk Seahorse

Unbelievably, Jim is a relatively new embroiderer!  You sure wouldn’t think that from his work.   The Four seasons are 4 separate sets of designs that can be hung separately or together.

Laura’s Aztec Lilies

From Laura:

Good morning.  Hope all is well.  Here is a pic of my latest , finished embroidery,  your design 1780, Large bouquet featuring an Aztec Lily.  Although I have done many of your large designs, for some reason, known as “User Error”, I had some problems with placement on this design.  Once one part of the design is off, all can be off.  So I’m sending this picture as proof there is magic in fabric markers!  What didn’t match up, I colored in with markers as close to the embroidery thread color as possible, and ta-da, if I didn’t tell you there had been issues, you would never know.

Also, what is hard to tell in the picture, is the background fabric is a linen blend with a metallic thread running through it.  I double-needle quilted it before doing the embroidery, much easier than doing it after, however, whether it be the metallic thread in the fabric or the the metallic thread I used to quilt the fabric, in places it shows through the stitch-out. That doesn’t interfere with the finished design too much, but I did think it was a point to use as a “learning experience”.

Thanks again for all your amazing designs! Until next time, Laura

Early on I learned the beauty of a lot of colors of markers!  LOL The slightest thing while stitching can cause little *blips* and the markers are a much better option than starting all over again.  fortunately my current machine doesn’t do it, but  a prior machine was great for forgetting to back up after a tread break and prior (LOL) operator hated those little blips with just a few stitches missing.  The markers take care of those with just a quick touch!  Make sure you get markers that can handle being washed.
