New found fun!

This weekend I decided that with all the sewing I do, that I really needed a better machine. One with more options. So I bought a Husquavarna Viking Sapphire. It is a really nice machine. One thing that was a big selling point was the ability to embroider. Now it has to be done free hand, so it is going to take some practice. Tonight I embroidered a snowflake onto a tree skirt. 
 I simply drew the snowflake on the burlap with a fabric pen and followed the lines.

 I was really happy with how it turned out, tomorrow I am attempting my first name.... YIKES! I have a feeling that may take some more practice!!!
