My little birdies are coming along, I wish I could do this faster, but with one needle embroidery each tile takes about 3 hours of stitching and total attention.
I have a couple of tips for you,
When you are running your machine be very diligent about loose threads near the handwheel. IN this picture I am at risk, with all the vibrating, that loose thread could easily drop down and get caught in the handwheel. You Do Not want that to happen!! It can be a disaster - trust me!
another little tip, using your quilting ruler can be great for squaring up and embroidery tile:
when this is all sewn up it will hopefully look seamless. Haveing it squared up will help that happen.
I hope you are having a good day and doing something creative!
Thanks for stopping by,
Your progress may be slow Ginny, but it will be worth it - these tiles are exquisite.
Wowzer! These embroidery tiles are exquisite! I know you have a great machine, (what a blessing that was!!!!!), but it still takes a lot of skill! I can just about manage a french knot and I have never really used a sewing machine...haven't a clue how it works. I can just about managed to thread a needle!!!! Your work is beautiful and a delight to see! Bravo you!
