Creative Machine Embroidery (November/December 2009)

As much as I try to slow down the ticking of time, I have found that it is to no avail! :) So, here we are, ticking closer and closer to Christmas.

My husband informed me that a certain young member of our family had “read” the magazine. He was very proud that this little member knew how to flip the pages. Here is the condition of one of the pages after it was being “read”!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely day.

The glow of candles…

This is a preview of a Christmas embroidery project I am doing for Creative Machine Embroidery. I love how the gold metallic thread really brings out the glow:


I know it’s way too early for us to think about Christmas, but not the hardworking magazine folks!

Thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate your kind comments. I am running a little behind in getting back with you, but I will visit you back and respond to every comment. Take care!
