The other day I decided I best get a move on if I am going to make that little Mini-quilt for Thanksgiving to hang on the mini-quilt hanger that I bought at a quilt show two years ago. It has been hanging out, totally naked, in my studio since then. It seemed like a great idea at the time. You know how that goes.
So, I chose a cute little pumpkin pattern to embroider on the Babylock Unity. This is an Anitagood Design CD.
I chose to run the embroidery on a 10 inch square, without a cut away layer. I switched up the thread colors as well. (who has all those colors?) Here she is with the stabilizer removed, ready to be squared up and some borders added. I have to cut it down a bit so it will fit the darn little hanger.
I still have to read the book when I do these embroideries. So much time is lapsing between projects I forget what to do! Yeesh! Thread everywhere, other projects in piles and bins waiting for their moment in the sun. This is not a staged photo, it really is this bad. I have a quilt in progress, three projects from the retreat and a pile of Insulbrite for making potholders on top of that. Haven't started the pot holders yet but I am thinking really hard about it.
That's it. No borders, no binding. Stupid little hanger. It is too small to do much of anything other than frame a stamp or maybe plan ahead and make a smaller version of the pumpkin. Hindsight is brilliant!
