    Hi I thought i'd share some of my embroidery work. Some are finished and been given as gifts, some i had to keep for me. I want to keep my first pieces, if need to make another one for someone else, i can. Only thing is how much to charge? I've read on this board about how to charge. I'm in no hurry though, still learning. But then we never quit learning...

    I also wanted to mention that some sites do give you three sizes on a set of patterns. I like it when embroidery sites send you only your format, less work for me having to delete. I hope some of my projects will give some new embroiders a little tug to try something new in embroidery. Thanks for looking. :D eagle collage from BFC, Victorian Angel from emb library, snow elves from pixesrule.com

    Thank you ladies. I'll add a few more pictures, i'm sure if theres a limit though to load pictures on here at one time. I have some baby embroidery test pieces also. Oh i love baby patterns, who doesn't? I have a couple purses (ufo) i better get to work, the one i'm using now is missing a strap lol. oh and my favorite to stitch out is sunbonnet sue, I just bought two new sets, oh i can't wait to start stitching, but life's daily jobs, housework, etc, you know stuff we hate to do and miss out on sewing. Anybody agree??? lol I also took a couple emb courses, margen for error, by embtreasures, and latte. Both ufo, but getting there. Ok i think i rambled enough, i hope you like my little projects. If i can help, please don't hesitate to ask. But i'm still learing to, maybe we can work it out together. Happy Embroidering :)

    lonestar, this is also done with wws embroider diamond shape with fabric of choice the sew diamonds together. I also have this in hexagons . I messed this one but thats ok my quilt heehee. still ufo started this last winter

    In this picture of the little piles of embroidery of diamonds, here all i have to do is trim off the stab and cut around each diamond, be very careful not to cut to close to the emb. Then cut out, each one.I made a temp. wall display to hang it as i cut out of hooped set. Then when its, how i want to it be together , i lay parts of by my machine and sew together. It goes very quickly. I bought this pattern at laurassewingstudio she has some very nice patterns for some of us who can't cut those certain shapes accurately, like me, the diamond. Hope no one is getting tired of my pics? i'll add a few more. Thanks again, everyone for your kind words and for taking a peek.

    this purse is done on faux leather, used a leather needle, with tear away stab, now adding some other fabric to it . this pattern is from astitchahalf i have many of their totes also and the whole set of fuzzy bear adorable.

    These are truly works of art - stunning. I have an embroidery machine and rarely use it :(, need a kick in the rear to do more.

    hi connie, i have two emb. machines. memory craft300E and 350E, my first one is the 300E. I sure learn't alot with my first machine, I had it going pretty steady, once i got over my fear of using it. I need to take it in for a good look over, but i keep my 350e busy when i have a chance to stitch for a bit.

    Thank you Sewfine, oh you must give it a go, i was such a chicken , oh and i cried a few times when things wouldn't stitch properly. Maybe even more then a few times, :cry: but after a hrs or days, i'd get back at it. Now i need to get a new printer so i can get at some of the applique quilt that needs some attention. Thanks for looking.

    Thanks debcavan, this eagle collage took some time to stitch out, this pattern came from, www.bfc-creations.com this pattern comes in three diff. sizes. They have many different portraits of animals, oh and many different other projects totes etc. I have a photo of a leopard see if i still have pic i'll post. The size of the blocks for this eagle are done in the 5x7 hoop.

    leopard from BFC i have some card board behind the picture. This is my first attempt at embroidering a portrait. I didn't quite line up the blocks, Next one i know better how to do to.

    On my sweetpea hanger i noticed that some of my blocks stretched and when it came to lining the blocks together.. well i had to figure out how to fix those few places . I could have redone those few blocks, unfortunately i was low on my fabric. So this is what i did, those three humming birds and one dragonfly are not part of this pattern. So where my booboos are i covered with the birds. I want to add a ladybug on the lower left side, can u see where it didn't line up quite right? What you think of my idea of covering my mistakes? Thanks for looking.

    I have really enjoyed making all my ornaments etc, and i'm still learning, (i don't cry anymore) i just take a deep breath and if the embroidery doesn't want to work for me i take a break and tackle it next time. I don't like to rush it, and i hate wasting too. I have more things to finish, but i can't stop trying out new pattern. I must finish my quilts and start enjoying them. Thanks everyone for looking.
