At the weekend, I decided it was way past time to play with my new
toy embroidery machine so that's exactly what I did. I cut white fabric into 8" squares and just randomly picked some appliqués from my collection of designs.
I must admit, I didn't give any thought to how a hippo with chicken pox might look! Now we know. :oD
I'll just let you look at the others without comment from me. My fingers are there only to show the size of the designs.
I've decided that, although I do like embroidering with my new machine, I really do enjoy doing appliqués. It's also a great way to use some of the wee bits of fabric I've kept "just in case" I might need them. Now I do!
Tilly came to keep me company in the sewing room this morning and she was sitting so prettily on the chair, I just had to take a photo of her. Butter wouldn't melt, eh?
