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.
Quilts, Quilts, Quilts.
