I attended another monthly Embroidery Club on Saturday.
We were instructed to download a free "in the hoop" design from the Jamone Canada website before coming to class.
Unfortunately it was a disappointing session for me.
There were four of us who downloaded the design onto our flash drives but were unable to stitch the design on our machines during class.
So Hubby and I dragged my machine and stuff home again (I didn't even stay for the full session).
Once home we tried downloading the design again and after two tries we were finally successful.
So I stitched up the design at home yesterday.
I was running out of Halloween fabric and pieced together these patterns and colors from my stash.
The outline satin stitch is a burnt orange color.
Just in case you can't tell what this thing is....it's a little quilted and embroidered Halloween Candle Mat.
Everything was done "in the hoop".
This was my first "in the hoop" project.
It's nice because the embroidery "in the hoop" design includes all the steps - basting stitches, appliqués and embroidery.
All the embroidery classes are good exercise for me.
Just like crocheting...it takes practice and more practice.
I'm not going to show the back of the candle mat.
It's an even more Halloween themed fabric with printed orange pumpkins but the satin stitching would have looked better if I had matched the bobbin thread instead of using white thread.
Have you played Candy Crush?
It's very addictive!
I'm stuck on Level 37 and Hubby is on Level 79 or 80!
Bet you can't guess who is better at the game!
