Again, you can click on the picture to get a closer look. These designs come from Susan Glen and can be found at Susanglendesigns.com.
I know the picture is dark, but this one is lightened several times and if you click on it, it does show up much better.
If you're not familiar with embroidering on a sticky, wash away stabilizer, here's what I had to do. Lowered the presser foot to .5 and change to a metalic needle (larger scarf for the thread to pass through).

The Scattered Sewist (me!!!) has been asked by our local B-Sew Inn, which is the largest Babylock dealer in the country, to give a presentation (this Thursday the 14th) on how I use embroidery in garment making. How Cool is that! I've been informed B-Sew Inn feels they been a little narrowly focused on just embroidery and not enough on other aspects of these super versatile machines. As such, feel they would like to put more emphasis on garment making of all kinds. This is where I come in. LOL. As you all know, my passion is garment making. I'll be bringing 4 or 5 garments I've made that all have embroidery of some type added to the garment while under construction. I'll be bringing a Trench Coat (lined), 2 Shirts, a lined Vest & an heirloom baby dress made of batiste. I'll bring the patterns and the samples I made while testing. I'm soooooo nervous! LOL.
