Machine Embroidery

Something a little different for me...hehe.... machine Embroiderey..
Finally testing out the embroidery side of my sewing machine. I have a Husqvarna Designer Topaz 50...I wanted to buy just the sewing machine but they weren’t available so I was offered the embroidery version for the same price as the sewing machine. Sooo.... I have finally been tempted to try a few embroideries. This is a little picnic basket which then becomes a little picnic mat. It was a learning curve.....lots of reading and checking the manual 🤓.













Happy stitching........
