Applique Embroidery Chickens

Chickens OH MY

It feels so good to be back to work.

At 6 weeks now since that wrist injury, though 
I am not at 100%.....I can work with my embroidery machine.

So, I wanted to finish up my 
applique chickens.
Each has its own personality. 

I got this set of patterns over at 
Golden Needle Designs

How cute are these?

The process is really kinda neat.

Load the design, set thee colors

First the machine makes an outline

Cover the outline with fabric

machine stitches the outline again
trim off the excess
Then it finishes up the design.
Here are the rest of the chickens
So cute.

One day I hope to be able to create designs like this.

Embroidery-7 Days A Week Designs

Back to Work

It has been 5 1/2 weeks since I fell on the ice,
today I was finally able to  work on the embroidery machine.  
It went good, besides I figured I don't get great sleep
because of the pain I still have
 so might as well give it something more to hurt about.    LOL

I first had to work with some thread tension issues, 
upon looking closely at the bobbin, and discovering the
bobbin was warped, I tossed it and got another.  
Next cleaned the bobbin spring, ran a tension test and all is well again.

I was working on these towels, when the tension went out,
and I encountered the ice.

Finished them up today, here they are.

So good to have them done and a smooth run.

I think i will finish the applique roasters, next.

Am also working on my Ruffled Roses quilt, 
Cowboy Carnavel is coming up and I need a quilt or two to put in the
quilt show.  Updates on this coming.

Until next time <3 br="">

Red, White & Blue Quilt

Red, White & Blue Update

Working on the blocks for the RW&B quilt
The blue and white blocks are finished
14 of them, ready for sashing.
 Now for the red and white group
this is how they will look.
 For me it works to "stage" my work
this helps me hopefully not make a mistake in construction.
Each block contains 9 - 4.5 in blocks
It is important to make sure the star points are
going the right way, so staging helps with that.
 I begin with the upper two right blocks in the first row.
keeping them in the correct orientation, I move
them closer to the machine
 placing them right sides together and then pin them together
with the pin on the edge that is to be sewn
 it is so easy to sew the wrong edge...I have done it to many times

 so I pin. 
 with all 16 pinned, I can now chain piece the pieces
 after sewing, I will place them back in their place as
they should be, and add the end piece.
Then move to the second row.
Once all the rows are constructed, I will join the rows.
Progress is being made.
Seems things keep stopping me from working
hopefully that is all over with and I can get this 
quilt together.

Until later....God's Blessings
