Fun project

My great niece, for whom I made a going-to-college throw last fall,
recently asked if I could embroiderer a blanket for her newest
sorority sister. "Sure I can," says I.
She sent me a picture of the one she had received, and I digitized a
design, sent her a JPEG, she brought me the blanket, and selected a
thread color last Tuesday. I have added pictures to the top of this

As lovely as ever Beverly. Hope you gave yourself a round of applause. You do terrific embroidery. I have orders to sew at the moment, not so interesting but must get on with them. I would rather be preparing for Spring markets especially now I have had a spring clean of the sewing room. Instead I have fleece to play with and a dentist's stool to reupholster.

For this one I also got some $$. ;-) When I initiate the project, it's a gift, when someone else asks me to do one, it's business. ;-D
Thanks, but my machine does most of the work. I had a panic moment though, because after stitching the three center letters, suddenly "funny noises" were coming from the machine. I took off the hoop and found a thread snarl under the "i" of 'Big'. The bobbin thread did not seem to have any tension. I re-threaded, no joy; took the plate off, cleaned the bobbin area very carefully, no joy; re-wound another bobbin, and FINALLY got the danged thing working correctly. Whew!
You have very interesting clients.

much snipping
That had to be a heart stopping moment.The machine may do most of the work but the finished product shows the skill of the operator. Lovely Outcome.!

Yes indeed! One reason I have never wanted to sew for profit is that I cannot stand the pressure of either deadlines or equipment failure. The machine is due for a complete service, and the nearest genune Singer Service Center is in Seattle. Nice road trip! ;-O
Thanks, Juno! I do love doing this stuff, and I have never regretted getting an embroidery machine.

How far is Seattle, 200 miles. Just a hop,skip and jump It's a nice city, you could do the locks and Space needle, Pikes Place is a must, A quick trip up Queen Anne Hill maybe a ferry ride, Check out the East side of the lake, Bellevue or Kirkland, How about seeing the house boats on Lake Union. Pick up your machine and drive home. Of course you better bring some one with you to drive you back tportland, because you may be a we bit tired. ;)

Juno, you do not have to sell me on Seattle! I have visited there many many times. We loved the '62 World's Fair. My DH and I used to make the three hour drive up and back to watch our local junior hockey team play away games. Course, we also drove to Spokane, Victoria, Vancouver B.C., Kamloops and Prince George for games, so the drive to Seattle is a walk in the park. I will be taking two machines for service, and I doubt he will be able to do both in one day, so I would plan on staying there for a couple of days. And ALL your suggestions are on my must do/see list. I love Seattle, I just hate the traffic.

As you can tell I love Seattle as well. I miss my trips out there. I'd love to go again but to be honest, I don't want to have the hassle of air transport. It use to be a pleasure to fly out there, but the way airlines are now on domestic flights,it's no longer my cup of tea.
