WOOOO, I definitely had a learning day today with my embroidery machine. This was the third thing I had embroidered since I got it last May, and let me tell you it was interesting. I did my first six fine, but my son said he wanted one but didnt like the background so he picked a different one for the one we keep. Well, once something was changed..... the needle broke, the bobbin case got a little hole in it, and then the top fabric kept being pulled into the bobbin case. Let me tell you, I was getting very annoyed. Luckily my DH was home so he filed down the little whole and then all was well again. I was sooo annoyed, but we now have 7 little 6.5" squares ready. I will take a pic of them all together so that you can see what my son picked for the other background.
Now off to see which I am doing next. I already have 3 in my head....

Ok ladies, I have a question for you and maybe you guys can help me. What does the little picture look like for a satin stitch look like? I have a Brother SE 400 and a Brother CS-6000i. I really would like a satin stitch on my appliques instead of the ones that put stitches further in. Don't know just like the looks of the ones that have been done with the satin. Please, please please help me..... :cry:

WOW! that gamling chick sure is cute!!!

to make the satin stitch I usually use the zigzag and shorten the stitches. I am NOT very good at this stitch! I have no patience, and you really have to go sloooooow :D
