Scribbles 1 – Freebie to first 500

My Scribbles Sweater - Free Embroidery Designs

In appreciation for those of you who support me and my studio, here is another in a series of free embroidery designs. This design replaces the one offered before in its series and will subsequently be replaced by another in a week or so.

I made these 3 designs some years ago and sewed them onto my pink sweater.

I ran across a photo I took of it last month when I was wearing it. I still love how this turned out. I’ve been wearing this off and on for years.

I like tone on tone embroidery on garments.

To embroider on sweaters be sure to use a medium weight cut away stabilizer and a top dressing of aqua film/badgemaster water soluble stabilizer.

“I went to the beauty salon today and got spruced up,” Grandma said. “Ever since Mildred Frick called me a slut my phone hasn’t stopped ringing. I got two dates for the weekend.”

“It might not be such a good thing to have men calling you because they think you’re a slut,” I said. “They’re only going to be after one thing.”

“I hope that’s true. I don’t want to find out I went blond and bought all them thongs for nothing.”

― Janet Evanovich, Takedown Twenty

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

 

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

– Emma Lazarus
