I couldn’t resist digitizing these colorful angels. Usually we see angels in all white and these would be beautiful all white too. But I’m such a color girl I love seeing them in colors as well, especially pastel colors.

I padded the satin stitches so they stand up off the fabric better.  For best results use very fine bobbin thread. Continue reading Angels Colors

Extraordinary Damask Machine Embroidery Series

~~ Links to purchase Extraordinary Damask is at the bottom of this page ~~

This series started with the center design artwork. I love the design but it needed more. Adding pretty rings around it (wreaths) was an easy thought but nearly drove me nuts digitizing the green one – smiles. Then of course I had to make it into something that could be used as a quilt or pillow block. The lattice background and french knots are a favorite finish.

I say Extraordinary because like these designs, damask fabric looks different depending on which way you look at it. Dark areas appear when turned one way but are light when turned another way when other areas turn dark. Yet all the thread came off the same spool. It’s an extraordinary characteristic of damask fabric and machine embroidery thread.
