Shari~

Your bowl is beautiful. Now I want to make bowls. I'll never be able to sleep again.

 

Diane, that's the problem with this addiction called machine embroidery!  It's as bad as quilting :)  I don't sleep, I dream of new projects to make.  LOL

Sleeping is highly overrated.  Just think of all the projects we could complete if we didn't have to sleep....LOL>

Shari they are beautiful but did you really pay $85 for one design?  I am still working on the designs where you get 30 for $10 LOL

I keep hearing about all this beauty sleep but it's obviously not working in our house!

Shari~

Thanks for the links. I bookmarked them all. I'm like Marilyn though. I don't think I could spend $85 for one design. You do get what you pay for and the quality looks awesome. I'll have to save my pennies for these.

I'm sitting here thinking.....yes, it does happen once in a while. I used to make doilies with the teeny teeny crochet hook. I had doilies everywhere. Then I made doilies with my knitting machine. I even made lace curtains for my sewing room back then. Now here I am again with doilies by my sewing machine. What will be next?

Kris~ I still can't find where to delete a dumb message. If I pull down More there is no delete there and there is nothing under edit.

Not sure why Diane. I was able to do it.

Honest! I haven't hit the old wine jug yet. This is what is under my more buttons: I ain't got no delete!

Marilyn, ahhh-yep.  Crazy isn't it?  But to justify my spending, I create embroidery gifts for my web site and there are lots of people who want this type of thing but don't have a machine, or even want to do this themselves.  Plus, I digitize designs for sale for the home embroidery market, so I offset what I spend on other sites with what I make in sales :)  I have to get busy again and rework some of my older designs and get them back up on my site.

I need 24 more hours in a day to do everything I love :)  At almost 60, I still have a lot I want to do before I get too old to enjoy it.  LOL

Diane, yes, $85 is pricey for one design!  Good thing I paid for all my purchased designs out of my own money and business sales or my hubby would have me committed :)

Oh now that's dangerous to even wonder what's next...you never know what idea might be lurking waiting to grab your interest.  I finally gave all my crochet hooks away, but kept all my knitting needles.  Believe it or not, during the winter, I knit socks.

Shari,

Great links!! I love the third one klace. Ok I'm ready to post a pic. Don't laugh, lace isn't just white anymore. It's my nature to try something out of the box and I added some crystals, although I may change them to purple later. I haven't formed it to take even out the stitching and the pic isn't the greatest,   but,  Ok here goes.....

It's you! You always go for the brights and are brave and daring. It's very beautiful. I have to get my embroidery unit out. Now I'm chomping to embroider again. I still have pics to add, too. DH is working Fri and Sat. night so if I'm not totally tuckered out from painting all week, I'll be quilting and embroidering this weekend for sure.

Steph~love it!

Stephanie, now that is my idea of embroidery.  I love the bright colours.  I too used to crotchet doilies and tableclothes with the fine cotton and the tiny hook but my hands don't like me doing that any more.

Diane,

after report abuse there's "edit" don't you have that? It looks like the option to delete the post goes away after a while. If you have "edit" you can just delete what you wrote and write "post deleted".
