Using Some Metallic Thread

So, we got these new thread holders at work, and they work great for metallic thread. I’m making these too throw pillows with the metallic thread, and I think it just looks marvelous! I’m not too sure what to use metallic thread for, any have any good ideas?

Mastering My Embroidery Machine

I’ve been working on a Zelda Commission quilt, but as I’m sewing it, I’ve been embroidering in the background. It’s so nice to press a start button and walk away! Hahaha! So here are just a few samples of what I have done so far! What do you all think?

Playing With The Embroidery Machines At Work

Well, I’ve been making some stuff for the store I work at, and I wanted to work with some variegated thread. I’m beyond in love! I also played around with Viking’s 6D software… It’s actually pretty easy. I designed the 2 hearts, and the “When You Wish…” piece myself. It was actually surprisingly easy. Follow the jump for more pictures of the threads close up! Continue reading

Finished The Table Runner

I finished the quilting on this beautiful table runner! I cannot wait to hang it at the store on Tuesday. I have Monday off, so hopefully I’ll get a little bit more quilting done soon! I just love this applique. I think I’m going to do one that is Solar System oriented next. I really like it Or, I can do something spring themed, and use the circles for flowers and flower pedals. We’ll see!

Working On A Table Runner

Now that I painted my kitchen a lovely shade of pistachio ice cream, I need to redecorate! I started this table runner at work last week, and hopefully I can finish the quilting on it tomorrow, so I can hang it up in the store for a couple on months before taking it home! I just love the embroidery features on the Designer Diamond Royale. I really, really, really want one! I did this with the build in applique tools on the machine design program, and now I cannot wait to finish it so I can stare at it! I really do need one of the embroidery machines at home. Imagine all of the work I could get done! It would be insane! Anyways, wish me luck on quilting this!

Confessions of A Quilt-aholic: Afraid Of Technology

I’m not going to lie, computerized machines intimidate me. I see an embroidery machine and I get nervous. All I can think of is about what if I break the Motherboard? What if my tension is off? What if it only sews backwards? I’m terrified! I look at the machines surrounding me in my room and I know that if one of them has something wrong with it, I can take it all apart and put it back together. (Trust me, I’ve had to do it to some of them.) I can take apart the thread tension disks and put them together. I can take apart my bobbin case and adjust the thread tension there. I can clean the gears, I can buff the needle plate. I can do it all… to a mechanical machine anyways. Continue reading
