Been a while...

Goodness I have alot of catching up to do. I have no clue where to begin. Well my last day in the Navy was November 12th. So I am now a civilian. I am also finishing up my first semester at Columbia college and getting ready to sign up for the second. I will be getting a much needed break from school because I have a lot of stitching and planning to do.

So lets catch up.. Last week Keith and I got this super fantastic deal on a Viking Diamond. Yes I already had 2 embroidery machines but they both only stitched a 4X4 area and it was driving me crazy. There were so many other projects that I wanted to work on but couldn't because my hoop area was too small.

So here it is: (Well the box anyway)


And the embroidery attachment:




And here I am super excited about the hoops that came with it (and of course the mess behind me but that has since been made worse and cleaned up):




And here are the first couple of projects that I worked on:




Its a wine bottle wrap that I found at Embroidery Library. You can find the design for purchase here and the entire set here. They have really good prices and I am pleased with the way that they stitch out. If you get the chance look at the projests they are pretty easy to read and they have a lot of great ideas. I just realised that I never took a picture of the second project or the others after that so until the next post!! My quilty friends and family are going to get some great gifts this year. I will be sure to let you know where I find my designs.

If you get a chance check out Designs By Sick there is a link in my sidebar. They have great prices and have daily freebies that you can get to check out the designs to see if you like them.
