The part of this house-settling I have enjoyed the most has been organising my sewing room. We've moved to a house with one extra bedroom that the last, which means Mama gets her own room! Maybe I could call it the Mama Cave??

Finally I was onto the fun part - embroidery. I got the module out of the box, then quickly decided I should read the manual. And I did. Probably for the first time in my life, but now I actually do know how to use the machine and will hopefully remember what I've read so I'm able to get the most out of it in the future. So machine embroidery. Never thought I'd be one to use it, but I love it already. I can't wait to get into my creative groove and produce some fantastic quilts, garments, etc. What fun. Here are the two samples I did last night and this morning. The variegated thread is probably not the best choice for these designs but I was just playing around.
I also love the website emblibrary.com. It has fantastic, reasonably priced designs that can be easily downloaded in any format. Winner! I've just put in a big order of fabrics from thefatquartershop.com and when that comes in I'll be at it. Hmmm... now just to get the ironing done before I get stuck into some real projects!
