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="">
