I'm loving the border work on the Nines and Vines. I have the stars and leaves prepared and I'm laying the vines on the border now. The borders should be completed pretty quick ... by the end of the weekend I hope. To applique the stars and leaves, I plan on using Sulky poly invisible thread and use the no-show applique stitch on the Brother NX2000. I've done a few extra stars so that I can do some testing. I'll show you my test pieces tomorrow.
Meanwhile I had been meaning to make a little gift for our local travel agent. She's great at searching out great options for our travel, and looking for deals. We use her services quite a bit even from afar. She ordered some special travel brochures for us and because I was planning to pick them up today after the Friday girls coffee break, early this morning I made this crystal bracelet for her. She really liked it and was surprised when I gave it to her.
