    I've noticed that a lot of you own an embroidery machine or a sewing/embroidery combo. How often do you use embroidery and for what? Do you embellish quilts? Decorate clothing, household goods, totes and bags? DH keeps telling me I need an embroidery machine, but I'm really not sure it would get that much use. Pics of all your handiwork are greatly appreciated! :-)

    I have one and sadly I do not make real use of it. Last year I made Christmas stockings for my work department with their names on them. I too would love to hear others responses.

    Have not used the embroidery funtion on my machine for 2 years. It is nice if you have small children to sew for.

    Here is a quilt I made with my embroidery machine. Machine applique. The picture was taken at my sister's before I did the binding.
