I've been experimenting with the On Screen designer that came with my new sewing/embroidery machine.  It's like magic!  It's a sketch pad tablet that digitizes hand drawn designs.  Here's my first project, a palmistry illustration that I made into a pillow (my first ever pillow).   Grin



I'm going to have so much fun with this thing!

Great looking design. How did you come to use that particular genre? Do you do palm reading?

This machine just opens up all sorts of ideas. Have fun. Smiley

I don't, I just enjoy the imagery.   Smiley

Awesome! I love that picture, it's terrific!
What sort of machine did you get? Embroidery from drawings is exactly what I want to be able to do Smiley.
