I'm working on a toile for a jacket (no deadline, but I'd like to  
get it out the door), several Christmas gifts, and the other day my  
older DD asked if I could whip out something to donate for a  
fundraiser.  I did:

Now, back to the toile...

That will make a nice gift for whoever gets it at the fundraiser.

If the bids don't reach a good price, I'll just buy it back, I know  
someone who uses aprons every day.  ;-D

Oh, that's pretty! Say, do you make the designs yourself and then digitze  
them? I love the abstract form of the Tree. The 'prism white' doesn't come  
out so nicely in the picture as it did in that one of your sister's cape.  
Well, cameras...

Depends...  if I can find a commercial design I buy it.  
Emblibrary.com is my go-to site, I am usually very happy with their  
products. I have occasionally tweaked commercial designs if they are  
not exactly what I want.

If I cannot find what I want already made up, I digitize it myself.  
I either draw an image free-hand as the starting point or find an  
image online of whatever it is I want. Digitizing is very  
time-consuming, and I usually do at least one practice stitch-out  
before stitching on whatever the real project is, so it costs some  
time and $s to do my own. I do love making originals, though.

I thought about trying to take the picture at more of an angle so  
the thread 'glisten' would show, but time is short, I delivered it  
yesterday.  If I had the skills, I would photo-shop it.  ;-D

Yes, I remember how much effort it took you to digitize DD's badges. (To be  
honest, she never wanted them to be sewn on any garment of hers but kept  
them 'just so' in her treasure box. The door hanger, on the other hand,  
quite often adorns her door, although it tends to get stuck in the door at  
times due to the different makes of American and German doors, I guess. She  
has grown so big, next summer she'll be through with elementary school and  
these days we have to choose the proper school to follow... She's bright but  
fuzzy-brained, what shall we do? Don't try to answer that, it's just a  
rethorical question, and we accept all the counselling that is offered to us  
from school, teacher, etc. Don't hope... I mean, of course, fear, I'll keep  
you posted. ;-) )

Haha, yes, I bet you would! Skills and a time-stretcher. ;-)

project.
