I haven't posted a real thread in *ages*... so here's some love for the machine embroidery board, since I might be a bit obsessed with the embroidery machine I got in November. 

I did these for the Positive Affirmations Swap; each of my partners got a little patch and a larger quilt-pieced bit.

Here's a shot of all three of the big pieces:

"Be Kind to Yourself" mug rug for loves2experiment

"Be someone who makes you happy" mug rug for LadybugsandBumblebees (backed with ladybug fabric, of course...)

And "Be the kind of person that you want to meet" TM-style patch for BigBangMomma

Here are the patches (recipients' color choices on fleece) and an extra tree I stitched out but didn't end up using. 

...and then for me I added a "positivi-tea" patch stitched up on old denim to my bag.

I've so enjoyed each of these as they appeared in the Positive Affirmation gallery but seeing them all together is just great! You did such a nice job with everything Smiley.

You really did some beautiful work!  I really need to break out my embroidery machine and start doing some positive projects!

I really love the variety of nice things you sent to each partner!

Those patches are really fun...especially love the one on your bag!
