Been a while since I posted here, and I apologize for not having anything right now to post (I put up my FSM CD
holder somewhere else, but because I used a tarantula in the photo, it was not well-received, and the craft was a gift, so it's gone and I can't redo the pics sans spider).
I would like to mention that, if anyone here has an embroidery machine, Urban Threads
is having a design sale through the end of the month. The designs are all 50% off. (I am in no way affiliated with Urban Threads, except as a happy customer, and Urban Threads also has hand embroidery templates, and digital stock art, of the machine embroidery designs.)
Because that's all of what I've been doing lately: machine embroidery on baby stuff for my market table. It all looks so retail, I don't want to post it here.
I've also just subscribed to DesignsBySick
for 6 months - that's unlimited downloading of all designs on their sites. They're also having a sale on design sets, and many of them fit the 4"x4" hoop that seems to frustrate home embroiderers who don't have larger hoop sizes or software to cut larger designs down for multiple hoopings. Their sets are going for $2 each - that's $2 for anywhere between 5 and 10 or more embroidery design files! a lot of it's cloying and cutesy, but there are some gems in there. Just a note: I'd stay away from the dream catchers designs - for some bizarre reason, the machine has to do the same outline 9 or 10 times, making for a really thick mat of threads. Not worth the aggravation. Everything else I downloaded is great, though.
