Isn't the latest technology just wonderful? Here I am sitting in my workroom, which is a converted loft with loads of room, the embroidery machine is busily stitching away my own design, created last week.
What am I doing? I'm keeping an eye on the machine and writing my blog. What more could anyone want?
I use my embroidery module in combination with free machine embroidery and I hate it when it's too perfect. That's my excuse anyway for not learning to digitize perfect little images. I like to create images then stop and start the machine, changing colours as and when I like and moving them around here and there overlapping and so on.
I use a Bernina Artista 180 which I have had quite a while with no problems at all and can see no reason to change it for a later model. It would be a different matter if someone gave me one, but that seems highly unlikely.
The small purse in the top left hand corner was finished recently, but the work below was made a while back. I have a chest full of work that never sees the light of day. My 15 year old granddaughter, Amy loves looking at them every now and then.
