Squeezed in a quick job

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...

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...

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

Thanks!
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. ;-)

I love knowing that she still uses it! I had such fun creating that project.
You are such a good advocate for your DD!
There are too few hours in each day... ;-D
