    Default Alien Love Table Runner

    My husband and I have a unique sense of humor as you can tell by this creation!

    Hubby asked me to come up with a new table runner for our kitchen that was "crazy and kooky". I used UT embroidery designs with our astrology signs and I custom digitized the alien head. Hubs was MOST impressed with the glow in the dark thread I used and gave me a high five for a creation well done!

    It is a kooky runner, and your work is great! I've wanted to find a reason for glow in the dark thread, was it difficult to use in your machine?

    Very creative. UT designs have an edge all their own!

    The glow in the dark thread was VERY fragile. Thankfully the stars were less than 2500 stitches.

    I made sure to have a brand new needle, slowed my machine speed by half, and turned the tension down by half. The bigger stars in the constellations are REALLY thread dense so if you go slow and easy you should be okay.

    That is just fabulous! I will check out UT for sure! Is it wired to go in the dark kitchen and have the alien staring at you?
