Very excited as the Vintage Flower Girls are now available on a Disc. For years I have been asked whether my work was Machine or Hand Embroidered, and I have always said its all hand done, because it was.
Well now some graduates of the Machine Embroidery College have digitized the girls and it looks like Hand Embroidery, it is truly gorgeous. The colours are very similar to the DMC colours I have used, but you can always change them to suit your fabric choices.
Here is some sneak pictures.
Suzanne is a stunner that would look great framed or in a cushion. Its almost indecent how fast they can be made.
Don't worry I'll always be making the hand embroidered samples, its just that many of the Embroiders that I meet, lack time and some are having issues with their hands or eyes but still demand perfection in their work. The girls have been tested on the most basic Machines to the Top range machines and they look like superb backstitch.
Its a little like good food with Embroidery, you take on more work than you are actually capable of sewing. Thats how it is for me.
The discs are available on the website here or just ring me. If you are interested in only downloading them, I'd like to hear about that also. Next Machine Embroidery to be released is the Colonial Houses and Ballerina Bears.
Back to stitching next month's freebie.
