My first attempts at machine embroidery.....

Here she is girls..my gorgeous Brother Innov-is 750e and she is wonderful...full of such loveliness to use. What with lots of different memory cards to purchase with patterns on and also plain cards to download onto, the choice will be great. Just realized that she isn't thread up on this piccy but I was just changing colour. I dived straight in and embellished some of my new towels.
The colours used don't show up so well on this towel, as I have only purchased 14 colours as yet...so was a bit limited. Pretty though!

Tried doing a bit of moving the hearts around, very unsure as you can see, the patterns can be rotated etc and moved up/down/left/right....I feel a lot of trial and error is needed, as you can see when I added the flourish of flowers...ops.
Also I didn't move the middle heart down far enough, but hey, I'm still chuffed.

The colours show up beautifully on this plain white hand towel....gosh I'm sitting here itching to do some more...but must not rush things. Can you imagine all the things to personalize, I'm thinking plain white t-shirts of the Grandbubs, which I can put cartoon characters on...I'm thinking M & S white blouses with delicate roses scattered all over. I'm thinking bottoms of granddaughters dresses prettied up.....plain duvets prettied up, there are so many possibilities....anyway off for a cup of tea and a relax....no I shall be good and refrain from doing anything else on her tonight.....byeee x

Taaaaaa daaaaaa! .............X

That's awesome! I have a new machine but it not as nice as yours. I need to start sewing more.
Enjoy!
