    I also know nothing about machine embroidery. But, I do love fairies and flowers. They look lovely. I'd love to have an embroidery machine. Maybe one day.

    Omgosh that is so gorgeous ceanna!! She's going to treasure that for years and years. :)

    By the end of the week? (Don't they usually go ahead and admit them at that stage?) Anyway, that's so exciting. Hope all goes well. :) :)

    Ceanna, great job, I always have a time getting all those unnecessary threads cut off. It's too cute.

    If you remain really bothered by the lack of definition in the faces. You could always use some of the embroidery thread and do a little handwork on the eyes and mouths to give them more deffinition.

    Hello,

    I have been doing a lot of machine embroidery like yours. The puckering is most likely a stabilizer problem. I use a paper, iron on, tear away stabilizer made by Sulky. It is called "Totally Stable". On top of the iron on I use a crisp tear away stabilizer. Your tension could also be an issue. What type of machine are you using? What size designs are you using? Also what brand thread do you use? I have had very good luck with Madeira Poly Neon.

    I have the same design collection that I plan on putting up on my website. I will stitch them out on my Ellegante and post some of the pictures. I have been trying to start a business selling embroidered quilt squares. My thought was to provide the ability to include machine embroidered squares without having to own an embroidery machine.

    Let me know how you make out.

    Cheryl
