In all our house busyness, and gardening work and preserving the bounty work, I haven't sat down at my sewing machine in weeks. Quite sad! This week, I've had 2 days to sit down and work on machine applique projects ~ a new technique to me. I did my first project on a scrap piece of fabric leftover from another project, it turned out great! Then I moved to a kitchen towel! The top chicken is my first project on Wed. and the 2nd was my Thursday project. I desperately needed new kitchen towels, and decided to decorate them!
I liked my chicken on the scrap piece too, so I duplicated the 2nd one on a scrap. I think I will do about 4 more on the fabric and turn it into a chicken table runner ~ my scrap was actually 2 18" long pieces, so I figure I can get 3 chickens on each piece. These projects are also using my boxes of scraps that I organized in the spring. Its much easier to look through a photobox size of little scraps than a big blue tote.
These chickens came from an applique set produced by Designs by JuJu ~ https://www.designsbyjuju.com/. She has loads of designs ~ everything I have bought from her has stitched out beautifully ~ and she has great sales! If you love machine embroidery, then you should check her out! (free advertising....I just really like her designs!) New discovery ~ I just went on the site again....she has 90+ free scripture designs for download....FREE! On the homepage, click the Bible Verses box on the right side. This is exciting~at least to me!
Greg got all my new sets downloaded for me last night ~ so I am ready to explore those files today! Lots of new projects on the horizon!
