Fireworks of thread.

Hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend!  I don't know about you, but in my brain the word HOLIDAY is synonymous with CAKE.   Im officially on a sugar free diet for awhile after 4 days of baking.   I need to put all of my attention into my projects and try to remember what eating healthy means.

I played a little in my sewing room over the weekend, but didnt really finished anything. I have an order for a large tote bag to work on, and fireworks were requested.  Playing with my embroidery machine is easily one of my favorite pastimes.  

I LOVE the batik used for the bag body.  This tote is for an artist and the paint splatter is so fitting.

I need to remember that I can re-hoop when planning design placement.   That should come with practice though. I've only embroidered a few things so far.

I'll be sure to pop up a photo of the finished bag in a few days.  My husband, Kenny, is going to cut a hardwood bottom for me. I'll cover it in batting a matching fabric for a sturdy bottom.

Thanks for stopping by.
