Hello fellow embroiderers! Well, I couldn't sleep last night, (no, I wasn't waiting for Santa to come down the chimney) but thinking of the many final projects I still had on the embroidery burner to get done that are family gifts....always the last to be done, eh? But my success this past several months since starting my little craft business has been a blessing. This has allowed me to rebuy supplies, wonderful designs on embroidables and to help support my granddaughter in college (this last semester she studied in Italy and such a bright a well rounded young woman she is...can you tell I adore her?) So here's hoping you get your projects done for Christmas and all have a joyous holiday and a Happy New Year....thanks so much for the wonderful tips......as being new at embroidery, tips from fellow embroideries help in learning the process to produce quality work!
