I am the kind of person that really likes the challenge of sewing complicated patterns or complicated or difficult to work with materials. I have to say as a result many of my finished products go in the trash. This is because even though I enjoyed the process the end result is not what I want to wear. Sometimes I come up with an item I really like. I rarely make the same thing twice.
Using the embroidery part of the machine was the easy part. Learning about the software and how to tweak the designs, using the correct stabilizer, using the different types of threads and needles, getting the fabrics to hoop correctly has been a tedious pain in the neck.. I am also in danger of buying too many designs as well.

One of the things I wanted to be able to do was monogram a set of towels. Well here are the first set.

The last thing I most recently wanted to do was embroider on scarves. This one did not come out well the fabric tore... don't know why. I guess it was a cheap scarf.
