    Re: scrappy rickrack

    What a beautiful tribute to your Snickers. She was such a beautiful part of your family. When Olive went to Rainbow Bridge I made a quilt in her memory from a fabric line called Olive's Flower Market. I know just how you feel...they say it takes time. Olive is away now almost two years and we miss her every day and still shed tears.

    I feel the same way about machine embroidery. I could get lost in that wonderful world!

    Hugs to you....

    Ah Sharon, it is a beautiful reminder of your loved one. I am not that creative but admire your abilities. I don't seem to come up with anything clever that I want to put on display. I finally bought some designs and it took me two weeks and a trip to DD's to figure out what I was doing wrong. You are an amazing woman.

    Re: scrappy rickrack

    Terry, thanks for asking. I am loving my embroidery machine so much...…..I can't believe all the beautiful and wonderful things I can do with it. My latest project is a life sized design of our Snickers. She is/was (she will always be here with us) our rescue Cavalier King Charles. We had to have her sent over the rainbow just six weeks ago and it is still such an emotional thing for us. I found this beautiful design, from the UK, and downloaded it. I stitched it out in as close to her color as I could and she now is on a pillow on our sofa, in the exact same place she used to lay. As you can see, I made a pillow, and the size of the design is right at the size of our little Snickler's head. I'm attaching a picture of it. I am constantly finding things I can do with my machine and feel there is no end in sight. I DO love my BabyLock Destiny. I think it's great that you are doing so much with yours, and find myself thinking of the time you first got it and didn't know if you were going to be sorry for getting it. Terry, trust me, you will never be sorry. Happy Easter.

    I was hoping this would inspire someone to use up their scraps.

    Re: scrappy rickrack

    Well, I'm not sure. As you said that I thought, "you know, that might be why my thread kept breaking,:" but it would only break 3 or 4 times in the design which was about 25000 stitches or a little more than an hour including hooping time.

    Was it hard to embroider thru all the seams?
