    I have been playing again with Designer Diamond. The things you can do with this machine is endless..but so far just learning...
    The bunny towel I call Bunny Love. It is 2 seperate designs. I took the vine and duplicated it. Then rotated it and put them together.

    I consider myself very blessed to have not one but two fabulous embroidery machines. I am having the time of my life with my machines and my embroidery software. This is largest purchase I will ever personally make. I don't feel it is too extravagant because I use them constantly. But I do know most people think I spent my money unwisely. For the amount of pleasure I have gotten from my embroidery machines I couldn't put a price tag on that! Enjoy your embroidery machine sure looks like you're having a great time!

    These particular embroidery designs is called Penny Squares. I got them when I had my Designer 1..floopy disk machine. I still wanted the software for my Designer Diamond so I had my instructor help me download it. I am so glad I did.
    Yesterday, I bought Dakota designs. I now have more designs to use on t towels. And it was on sale. Half price. Woohoo.
    Thank you all for your comments, you made me feel much better about my leisure time...lol...

    Those Viking Designer Diamonds are really a dream!! They are currently having a sweepstake; a drawing for one if you just go into a dealers' store & take a "test drive."
