    I've been playing with my embroidery machine and decided to get started on some Christmas gifts. These are free standing lace and I'm going to put one in all of my Christmas cards that I send out this year.

    Those are lovely. I have only tried to pieces of lace in my embroidery unit. I really love the angel. Maybe I will have to try and do some more sometime. Do yours come out really stiff too? Maybe my washaway stabilizer didn't all wash away.

    No you are not the only one supporting Embroidery Library. I have bought several designs from them and have been very happy with them all.

    Thanks.
    Mine are just the right stiffness. I read somewhere that if they are too stiff you can just rinse them more. If they are not stiff enough you can take a couple of small scraps of your stabilizer and soak them in a small dish and add your design and it will make it stiffer.

    Thanks everyone for the kind remarks. I've found a lot of things that I didn't know an embroidery machine whould do. I'm really loving my new machine and have been making a lot of gifts. In fact my DH just said yesterday when are you going to make something for us to keep. :-)

    Excellent job!

    I have that angel and made them last year. Did you get the 2D from embroidery library? Have you made Marie Osmonds angel? It's gorgeous.

    I'm making some this year too. I posted 2 of them in my post boys pillowcases.

    Yes the 3d angel did come from Embroidery library. Do you have a web addy for the Marie Osmond angel. I really liked the ones that you posted.

    The Marie Osmond one is no longer available. I got it over a year ago.

    The ones I posted is not the Marie Osmond one, it was a freebie somewhere, but I can't remember where. If I find it again, I'll let you know.

    Here is a free FSL mitten and angel. I have stitched out this angel many times.

    sharon b, I'm not sure who you are asking, but I have a bernina and the designs are for machine embroidery and are done on WSS (water soluable stabilizer).
