Embroidery Addiction and House Block Table Cover Update....

 You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you. --Sri Ram

I am finding more and more things to test out my new embroidery machine............I added a little bit to the New Year's mini wall hanging I made last year.........but first I want to show you the my progress on the House Block Table Cover.......


 I decided to make it a Four Seasons quilt so here are my ideas for the trees.......there will be two trees for each season with just a little difference in the two.......Notice that the sun is hotter in the spring and summer???  I downloaded some embroidery patterns of clouds and birds and kites and other stuff that I hope I can figure out how to add to this.......stay tuned......

And, yes, I have a new addiction.....I have been playing with my new toy and here is the little bit of embroidery I added to the
wall hanging I mentioned earlier.......
 I am still learning new things it seems like daily with the embroidery....I actually hooped this crooked in order to get the slanted lettering and then found out that the software I have will turn the lettering 45 degrees.......(duh).......and it also enlarges  so I could have resized the pattern to get a little larger greeting.......ah....the learning curve on new things..........

Well I guess that is all for now......I have still not returned to Oz and made any flowers this year but I invite you to go check out the other pretty hexagon flowers at One Flower Wednesday.



Time for bed.........so see you next time.....Ta-Ta for now......

What happy little trees! (Do you remember Bob Ross, the painter? I used to watch hinm on PBS and he always said that, LOL) I can definitely see the seasonal differences, what a great idea!

You're killing me with the embroidery!!! I don't think I can resist that machine much longer!!! (I know, I know, why have I waited so long to begin with??)

Looks like SO much fun!

Wow, you are making some wonderful things.

Oh, I'm missing out on all the fun. That tablecloth is going to be gorgeous. I love all the ideas you're getting for it. Did you cut out all those trees? Did you make your own pattern? Where are you going to put the road? What great ideas you're coming up with. I like the "Happy New Year" addition to the wall hanging. You'll have to update mine too, haha. I can't wait to see all your creations in "real life."
