My little sewing machine keeps amazing me...i never knew you could embroider on a basic sewing machine! Thought i needed one of those super expensive contraptions.

So anyways, there i was pootling around with the different stitch settings, when i found a weird plastic thing in my sleeve arm hidey hole..and decided it was time to open that paper thing that came with the machine (i think its called an instruction manual...i never really pay too much attention...not great i know!). My machine can do magical things!!

So, after a couple of moments of trying to shift my doggy off my knee so that i could have a go, I have come up with this:

I've become an avid crocheter in the past couple of months (it's supposed to be a skull and crochet hooks), and considering my doggy immortalises himself in all of that work (his hairs get everywhere!) I decided to immortalise his name in my first embroidery. Can't wait to start making everything i own a bit more exciting with some embroidery!! Just hope I can improve somewhat before i get carried away and wreck everything!

Cheesy isn't it cool?  I've been practising in my own little machine by printing simple drawings on mulberry paper and following the lines with the machine.  It takes a little practice to get used, and the golden rule seems to be "move the cloth sideways and up and down as much as you want, but do not turn it!"
Oh, the freedom of it...  We can draw whatever with thread now!
Show us your creations soon, if that's your first try I can say you're much better than I am Smiley
