I finally had a little time to play with my Embroidery unit. The pieces I really wanted to make require me to have a larger hoop, which is on order and hasn't come in yet. I decided to try to make a few blocks from a Holiday Redwork disk I bought. If I am lucky they will be ready to go December 2010. LOL!
I bought a freestanding lace design from Emblibrary.com that I also wanted to try. These are pretty quick and simple but if you wanted to make a bunch for your tree it would cost a small fortune in washaway stabilizer.
