Lots of Playing with my New Embellisher!!

5th June 2014

While I was waiting for the postman this morning I finished another baby blanket.....


...think I will have to find another simple pattern for the next one.

Then there was a knock at the door, Jack went MAD because somebody had dared to walk up our path!! 
I locked him in the lounge and greeted the postman with a big grin.....

...I was like a child on Christmas morning ripping open the parcel.....


...my embellisher with FREE Extension Table!

Read the instructions and I had watched a DVD on embellishing by Myfanwy Hart while I was finishing the blanket....


...set the machine up, found some grey felt and fleece and away I went...


...back after securing fleece strips...



...the finished front....


...and back...


...more muted on the back but more texture on the front, I will use more fleece next time!

Next thought I would see what happens when I wove the fleece....




...as this was quite thick I covered with net to hold in place while I secured....


....finished front....


...back.


Lastly, I placed a mixture of fleece bits from a mixed bag I had in my stash...


....secured using net...



...finished front..


....back.



I have had a great time playing with my new machine, think it might become addictive!!!

Watch this space.....
