    Some stuff I'm working on...

    My two brothers just had babies and I made this top today for his little girl it still needs another border quilted and bind, my other brother had a boy and I'm trying to make a little piggy blanket but it is so hard to do when my thread keeps breaking on my embroidery machine but any how here is what I have so far. Sorry for the bad pictures I use a cell phone on the light in my house _ucks. Thanks for looking.

    Very cute, first one is perfect for a girl. Second one will be perfect for boy. They both will love them.

    Thanks... sorry about the frequent breakage... but the result seems to be worth it.

    both are very cute. Thanks for posting. Just a note, might want to lower the tension of the embroidery machine just a little, might help with the thread breakage.

    Thanks for the advice but the machine is a melco emt 1 embroidry machine and the problem is the design I use it was a color book page downloaded from the internet and digitized on a free program also downloaded from net and not the proper thread. My dad gave me the machine and I self tought myself how to use it. I only wish I had money to buy a program that dont give me fits. Thanks any how.
