I had a stupid thought, Applique it freehand....!!!!!!What a silly idea that was. Whimsical and utterly stupid.. I have a state of the art embroidery machine and my own digitizing software and I now appreciate it to the fullest extent. I promise I will never irk at the thought of hooping up and finding the right stabiliser again.... It is way easier and unless it is for aesthetic purposes, refuse to applique like that... For starters I was daft enough to trace the letters the right way up ...about to iron the fabric on and realise that it was going to look pretty weird in mirror image... Learn from the experience isn't that what they say.. Cute mess though...

I am having trouble thinking on one track at the moment , I will be another year older tomorrow aaaarrrgh....yep more grey hairs and wrinkles, I'll blink and be an old fuddy duddy before I know it.. I am trying to think up a name for my sewing stuff. One that I can register and isn't taken... Well what a headache.. I have searched high and low for inspiration.. Song names, Paint colour charts, Family tree book, children's bookshelf, and asked friends of course the ... Whilst browsing for something suitable I found these gorgeous prints in an old book I have. I thought they were too cute not to share... Like I said my mind is all over the shop..cant focus at all...Must need more coffee....(or perhaps less?)
I have pictured a gorgeous dress I must sew, I have located a similar pattern and will modify it to suit. It will be made from chocolate linen and I hope it looks as great in real life as it does in my mind.. Stay tuned for that one, I must first learn to focus..! (Yes Yoda)
Oh for those who love freebie patterns I found this gorgeous little doll pattern for download, it is from the most successful seller on etsy..
