Back in Circulation

Well it's been quite a time time since I posted on my long negleted blog.  Various reasons have caused this, one of these has been that I have recently started machine embroidery !  I bought a Singer Futura XL400 machine.

Quite a learning curve getting everything just right but after many hours of trial and tribulation (not without it's funny side I might add !) I have made some interesting pieces of embroidery.

Today I have embroidered two little houses with gardens onto felt squares.  The first is on brown felt and the second on lime green felt.  I find felt a wonderful medium to embroider on.  I always use a tearable stabiliser to assist with support of the top and bottom threads during the embroidery process.

Hope you like them. Must start doing some papercraft now too so watch this space !!

  12. Sid, this is my first visit to your blog. So nice to meet you. And the piec shown first is awesome. GREAT JOB! Keep it up!

  13. Sid, here in the middle of Winter, it was great to open my mailbox and catch a breath of Spring!. These are indeed lovely!

    Two questions - what's the finished size of the embroidery? and how long does it take to thread the machine to do this? Do you have to stop and change each color?

    (ok, that's three questions! lol)

    Thanks again for posting! I've missed seeing your creativity!


  14. Wow!!! Fabulous work Sid.
    xxx Hazel.

  15. Threading the machine and finishing ends are the bits I hate so I admire your patience with all these colours as well as the finished products!

  16. Those are lovely. I am amazed at your patience.

  17. Hi Sid! Looks like you've been having fun with your new toy! These houses look amazing!
