I Show The Good I Show The Bad!

Worked ALL DAY!!!!  On had a few moments of @%&()(&%#    One was at the very end after I turned the project inside out and realized the right side at the top caught in the lining and I refuse to start all over.

You know what??? It is my purse and I love it so it is fine with me. The next one IF THERE IS ONE..LOL  I am just tired and spouting off so pay me no mind!  Well the next one I am going to use regular lining. I believe that will work better than the thick fabric I used.

I started the project at 2:30 pm and with the exception of stopping for one hour making taco salads, (Deara came to dinner) I just finished and it is 9:30.  You know the first time you try anything there is always a bug and it takes longer. I read each paragraphs over and over to make sure I did not waste my day.

I guess in my book I am a “winner.”  I gave it a try and it worked all except one tiny bug and I like it anyway! You learn by your mistakes. If you could only see the scrap bag I have of quilting projects that got a good ^%#@#%^&*   and thrown in the scrap bag!  Trial and error!

One More Down, Two More To Go!

One more design from the Floriani Floral Fantasy collection. The elephant.  Tomorrow after I change the needle and clean out the bobbin area I am going to finish two more. One will be the owl and I am not sure about the last one. I am debating on the peacock or frog.


This picture was taken before I pulled out the basting stitch.

I am not a stingy person I never was a stingy kid and I refused to hold back info when I view it important and helpful to others.

This program is beyond words, Basic to Beautiful Stabilizer Techniques. This is by a great teacher Debbie Homer-Hofhines.  I can not believe how I stayed glued to this last evening. It was like the most informative instructional DVD I have ever watched in my life.

If you have it and you are a machine embroidery lover like I am beginning to be and you have not watched this you are missing a ton of help.

I was fortunate to attend a two day seminar where I purchased my machine and Debbie was the teacher. Very lovely lady with the most kind spirit and she has some of the most awesome items she has made over the years. She is very talented and helpful. I will be attending more classes from her when available in my area.

I think you probably could ask your Brother Dealer to get this for you, or they may have it in their stores. I did see some for sale online and always check with

Also on the back of the disk there is another address   I know what I will be doing tonight during shut down time. Watching these two disk again. I can not begin to tell you how much I learned last night!   I am taking over the embroidery world!!!! Just kidding but I am going to do my best to be the best of the best!
