My Creation

This is supposed to be my dining room. Have to keep everything in ugly plastic cupboards and ironing board at the ready.

Yes, craft stuff does tend to take over the house doesn't it! Your embroidery machine looks interesting. They have new and used ones for sale in my local fabric shop but they look incredibly difficult to me, I only have a basic model so I think I would find it difficult to learn.

They are'nt all that difficult when you get used to them. This is the first one I've ever had. My husband is a wizz with anything mechanical and computerized. He was the first to use it. I was terrified of it. Still am sometimes. It can do some beautiful work, but you need patience. Sometimes I feel like throwing it through the window. You can get free patterns off the net. They are'nt always compatible with the machine you've got. This one is a Husqvarna topaz. Not all patterns are compatable with it, but from what I've heard the Brother make an excellant one with far more compatability. When I get rich I might swap this one.

I have seen them advertised in the sewing magazines, one in this months Sew is just under 4,000 pounds! I think I will have to win the lottery before I can buy one too! I would worry that I could not get the use out of them. I am just taking a course in crazy quilting and think I might find them handy for embroidering some of the seams rather than hand embroidering them all. Oh well, I will have to dream.

Thank you for your kind comments. They are not that price, otherwise I would'nt have one. You can get some really good ones for well under a thousand pounds. At £4000 I would want it to cook dinner and do the washing up as well.
