I love your labels, but I understand how its hard to come to grips with knowing what to do with this beast of a machine. 

I am planning to use my new girl (she isn't named as yet) to make embroidered lace bauble covers, as gifts at the end of the year, for the people I work with.

Well I'm getting the hang of programming the software, positioning etc.

Elvis is actually a doddle as he stitches beautifully as you can see.

I think my problem is (apart from Labels) I don't know what to do with Elvis !

Now there's a confession!!!




I have to admit to having a similar problem, even though I teach these machines as I told you, over the years I know struggle to find what I want to do.  I am a plain sole by heart, I am attracted to simple styles and clean lines so embroidery is not always my thing.
I don’t have children to do things for and there is a limit to how many cushions one wants.  I also hand embroider ( not a lot).
Always looking for ideas so would be great to see other peoples items.
