Our Software Sampler

I helped finish this pillow today at the Sewing Center.  Marian digitized the designs using PhotoSnap  in the software.  She sent them to the 830 and then it was just a matter of stitching them out.  That sould have been simple enough, but we decided to stitch them in metallic thread, alternating gold and silver.  ARRRuugggh !  It took forever.  I had to slow down the speedy 830 to a crawl, and even then the thread shredded and broke over and over again.  I finished the little pillow off by stitching down ribbon and rick rack, then stitching the sides of the towel together and stuffing it with a little travel pillow. 

Little buttons finished off the ends of the ribbons.  Software Sampler for Saturday is ready!
