my creative space ... part two

OK, the laptop has had a very stern talking to and is now on board with my new software and its needs! Last week I went to a Janome demo session with their new flash sewing/embroidery machine that does everything. The great thing about the session was that I learnt about some pretty cool stuff that my machine can do. In particular, with the addition of some software and a flash drive, I can machine embroider my own designs. So I did!

Can you guess what it is?



Yes! It's my artichoke drawing ...



Me likey!



My brain hurts with all the possibilities - fun city!
P.S. The multicoloured thread is cool too - it's a bit darker in real life - noice!

Hey lazybones, why the heck didn't you just thread-sketch it?!
How fun, to just draw something awesome then have your machine embroider it while you have a cuppa. Or is it a little more hands-on than that?

Tracey said...

wow, crafting is getting techy! Love artichokes to eat, love your embroidery, love the thread!

Oh, my! That's fantastic. Can I justify buying a fancy new machine? Probably not - need to get better at sewing straight lines first. And loading my bobbin properly....
