My embroidery unit and I have a love/hate relationship. I did the first 4 labels and they were perfect, then for some unknown reason I started getting an error message when it was stitching out the last word of the label. This happened twice and I have no idea why. I think what is so frustrating about embroidery is when you quilt, if you mess it up, it's usually your own fault, but with embroidery machines, 9 times out of 10 the computer just goes wonky. That's my experience anyway. I have a Husqvarna/Viking Designer I USB - does anyone else have problems with their unit or is it just me? If you have another brand, do you have problems too?
I may have blogged about this before, but I was thinking about it again today. I find myself obsessed with using up scraps and old fabric I don't like much anymore, yet I have all this gorgeous fabric that I love that I'm reluctant to do anything with. It's kind of like not using the good dishes. Life is too short, I know.
Of course, a lot of the fabric I purchased is for a specific project, but my memory is so bad I no longer remember what pattern I bought the fabric for. There's a lot to be said for leaving everything in a bag.
I don't have any pictures to share with you today - quilt labels make for pretty boring viewing.
The temperature outside today feels like -23. I'm sure it's warmer here:
