Onto something else



I spent a HUGE chunk of time making 2 burp clothes. . .mind you, originally the plan was 4. The large letter in the background of each took over 40 minutes apiece. This was not counting the hour I spent dealing with computer problems on my monogramming software or the 10 times my thread broke on the B. I tried everything, even replaced my needle, praying, saying choice words, yelling "You've got to be kidding me" or "For Pete's Sake" . I finally slowed down my stitch and that helped. . .but again, it was SLOW. I was pleased with the end projects though, they are cute. Two separate friends. . .Mason (boy), Bradlie (girl).

All I can say is, I am relieved they are done.

Those turned out wonderfully - I do know how frustrating it is when they stitch out so slowly though! And all the thread breaks too, yikes.

They're adorable! It always cracks me up when people look at machine embroidery and act like it was SO easy -- Yeah, it's not manual labor or anything, but it's time consuming to set all that stuff up!!!

Oh my goodness they are darling! I have yet to figure out the embroidery module on my machine LOL

Cheryl said...

Well, you wouldn't know how many problems you had by the way they look. They are great!

Karin said...

WOW - they turned out wonderful! I believe that machine embroidery looks much easier than it is.
