1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Peony Blanket - not too shabby on: August 11, 2008 04:54:47 PM
Using a forest green/hunter green stadium blanket, I machine embroidered some purchased designs on it with my mothers initials. (Blanket was for her... duh)

The open peony on the back 2 corners and a photorealistic peony with her initials on the center of the other end. I did it on the short sides because the blanket was for her chair.. and so the short end would show.

Here is the peony on the back 2 corners. The colors are a little more intense in the picture then in reality. I used Madeira Polyneon. The original design called for white center and purples but the peonies in our garden are fuscia/pinks with yellow centers, so I altered the colors.

Here is the center front design. The oval border around my mom's initials (CMS and done in Vermont font) is a two-tone "candlewicking" design. The candlewick turned out much nicer then expected.

AC Moore in Harrisburg sells/sold a craft show guide book. I can't remember if it was national or just regional. Perhaps if you called them, you could get a copy mailed?

Swatara Twp recently offered a class for a small fee at their township community hall. They publish in their newsletter. Perhaps you could call and get a copy? Tossed mine so I can't give you name of contact at hall for community programs.
