More machine embroidery - Thanksgiving

Here is the second design I completed on my machine last night and only just spent the last hour or so snipping the threads and I thought I got them all until I took the picture and noticed a few.  Oh well, back to the snipping. This is another design I bought from Embroitique.

I love the towels I got too.  Bought them at Bed Bath & Beyond yesterday for $3.99 ea. and got a variety of colors for fall and winter designs.  Thinking about starting my Holiday projects early this year so I might actually get to enjoy December instead of rushing to make all the homemade gifts I love to make.
Keeping an eye on the machine today so she isn't naughty again :)
Up close and personal....This is a 6" x 6" design.  Perfect for kitchen or bath hand towels.
The whole towel.


  1. They date from the early 1900s and were originally published by DMC Floss Company. They include some great Craftsman appropriate designs. best beginner sewing machine

  2. I've been making quilts for twenty years. In that time, I have amassed a huge stash of quilting supplies, books and fabric. Such a huge stash that it was overwhelming at times. Like most quilters, I was both proud and embarrassed by my huge assortment of fabric that I really did plan to use in making quilts. After the discovery, my fabric stash is now about 25% of what it had been and I had to claim a loss of over $5000 worth of damage. The quilts lost were all store-bought, but still valuable to me. It was not a happy morning. here
