    I have some silver metallic therad that would be cool as an adder after quilted. Now I have to have some chocolate.

Size:  173.5 KBI just finished my first set of pp'ed blocks. It is supposed to be a lavender dress with a black belt. the fabric does not show well in the photo. Just to give you an indication of the photo quality... the white is a solid (kona white) and it really looks like a white on white. I hope you all like it. I hope to do 2 more sets tomorrow.

    Ok I checked my machine numbers. I have an Activia 230 and an Artista 200. I have disk for the Artista for embroidery but I have never used that machine and I have owned her for 5 years now. Shame on me. I am going to have to sit down and figure her out and get embroidering. I love what everyone has done so far. I have one set of tea pots done. They turned out real cute. Will take a picture and post but I am having trouble posting pictures for some crazy reason. I make my pictures real small too. I had no problem a week ago and now zilch.

    Both of those machines have tons of nice built-in embroidery designs, URGodschild2. You just need to read in the embroidery section a little to get them to work. (You push one start button and then you can scroll through the designs with the arrows or push the number you want to do outright using the numbers on the buttons below the start button) Make sure you use the right sized hoop and a good quality fabric. The cut away stablizer works on most all of the type embroidery. So, you could start out buying that type to begin with. It is a bit of a pill to cut the designs away from it, but, you leave a small part of it outside the design.

    You should also be able to use the same type cards that I was speaking about. You look on the embroidery module front end and there should be a slot there to insert them. Once the card is in the module, the designs will load and they will be seen in the window on the sewing machine. You use the up and down arrows to scroll through them all to be able to choose one. If yours has a touch screen, just touch it! It will load and then you just push the start button to begin with your first thread color.

    There is editing capabillities as well, but, don't worry about that to begin with. Just hop in there and play with it!

    There are embroidery classes at the bernina distributor in your area. So maybe you might consider taking one if you are intimadated by it all. I didn't, but, I haven't had any trouble learning from the embroidery booklet that you get with the machine and the on line print out book for the lessons. (free at bernina.com)

    Have fun with it! It isn't gonna bite you! LOL!

    I love your hand made blocks. They are adorable!

    I forgot to mention the other type of bernina embroidery machine I think you have is using your computer that you have loaded the bernina program into. The module is attached to the sewing machine then, It is connected to the computer by a cord and tells it what you want by the input you place into your computer by your choices. A little more updated than the 200.

    My 165 uses the program and it is older than the 200. It is Artista program and works slick as ever,

    I also have the artista 190 and a aurora 440. I love them both, but they work entirely different from each other. The cards are wonderful and are so easy to use, I like using them the best. LOL... easy is GOOD!

    If you want to buy the cards for your machine uses the art design cards. For the artista.

    Hi, I need a little input please.? I'm going to post my next block. But, I have only added the ribbon to one, which I can re-make. I know you guys don't like the 3D stuff added till after you quilt. So, do you want me to add the ribbons and beads or just send a flower to put on instead of the ribbon and beads. I will hold off til I hear back from yall. I will post the other hat I'm making tomorrow. Which will also have 4 small beads which I can send separately.(Not as involved as this first hat.)

    That is so cute. I like the ribbon and beads better than flower and if could send on side I would appreciate it so I can quilt around the applique w/o breaking my longarm needle and throwing it out of timing. Thanks for asking.
