I am so excited . . .
because I have been wanting to try my hand at free-hand embroidery
ever since I started blogging and
seeing the amazing things that other blogging sisters were making.
This is my first project.
I have to admit that it takes a lot of time,
changing threads and re-hooping your fabric,
over and over again,
but it is also so rewarding to be able to write and
draw anything that your imagination allows.
I'm a beginner, so I didn't get too carried away.
I'll save that for when I have more experience.
You do need new tools every-time you try a new technique.
Notice the free-hand foot on my machine.
That little bugger was almost $40.
This was the other tool that I purchased.
Whether you embroider by hand or machine . . .this is a great little tool.
It's spring loaded and very easy and fast to move around your project.
I think it was around $4.
I had been noticing others making little bags to attach to their sewing tables
to collect all of their thread clippings.
After doing this project, making a little bag for thread is the next thing on my list.
I had loads of thread clippings, LOL
Well, that's it . . .my first free-hand project.

Before I close, this is my 50 cent yard sale basket.
I bought it last weekend and gave it a paint job.
Pretty nice for 50 cents, right?
Have a wonderful week.
Do something fun and enjoy each precious moment.
Your blogging sister,
