I don’t want to disappoint, so before I start the real purpose of this post… here are some pictures of Ana 🙂
When Derrek (my brother) and Kainoa came to visit two weekends ago, Kainoa helped me play around with my new best friend. Even though I had owned it for a week at that point, I hadn’t actually gotten a chance to do anything with it. I’m glad she was there to help me, because I was a bit intimidated to start. It’s so much more fun to do crafty things when you have someone to share it with 🙂
So, here is what we did…
It was so much fun to play around with all the cool stitches! We couldn’t figure out what one of them is though. Take a look at the fifth line. Starts off with cherries and then changes to… carrots? radishes?
And over the past few days, I managed to get up the courage to try out the embroidery. I don’t know why I’m so scared of this machine. I don’t want to break it, I suppose. And I assumed that it’s way more complicated than it really is. It was so much easier than I thought it would be.
There is only one font that came with the machine. I have some software that is supposed to create more, but it’s not working for some reason. The “G” is a little messed up here because the thread broke. But, other than that… I’m amazed at how awesome it looks! Embroidery is so cool!
I happened upon Urban Threads a few weeks ago and I *love* some of their designs! They are having a big 50% off sale up until today, so I wanted to test out one of their designs to make sure I could get my machine to use it. And it worked! Cute, eh?
Here are some that I really like…
