Machine embroidery is heaps of fun, but for me it is time consuming. You see, I have to tweak the colours to make them match. That means pulling out the threads and pulling out the fabrics. Then making sure I've put the right numbers into the embroidery program. I like to do this so that I can just grab the colour it tells me to and not think is this the right one. And lots of these designs take over 30 minutes to stitch out. Some take up to an hour! It's not a quick process, but the results are worth it.
I know I said no markets until after the house is done, but I want to go to the last Lorien Market of the year. Nathalie asked me to be there with her, and who am I to say no? My motivation is really just that I have ideas in my head, and I need to make them. Now I have an excuse.
All destined to become Antonia tops. And they aren't all in Mollie's size, but the Matruska one is...hmmmm, will it stay here? Maybe I need one like to too.
