Machine Embroidery - 12 Days of Christmas

I don't use my embroidery sewing machine much for embroidery any more. So I'm going to send it to my sister for a while to see if she can get some use out of it. It's quite old, but still stitches out embroideries quite nicely.

So her hubby will be coming by in 2 weeks and I plan pack it up with my old notebook with the designs on it, my thread collection and stabilizers. She'll be all setup to stitch.

Meanwhile, I thought, I should at least do one project this year before I send it away. I've been wanting to do a table runner out of the "12 days of Christmas Redwork" embroidery pack that I have, so this is the incentive to do so. I have 7 of the 12 five inch blocks stitched out. They are stitching quite quickly since it's only one color. Actually, I think they're really nice, now that I've started them.

I hope to have the table runner done in the next couple of weeks. The blocks will be set on point and sashed in red. I hope to have it ready to show at our next quilt guild meeting, which will be our final one before Christmas. I'll show you when its done.

sometimes simple is just better, isn't it. I love the 5 golden rings.. sort of celtic looking. Can't wait to see what they all look like. What size are they, its hard to tell
