It's always so much fun to start a new project. I've been wanting to start this project since before Christmas, but the holidays interfered. Then I had orders coming in and had to finish them. But Monday I was finally able to get it started and it made me happy.
It has been a frustrating experience to be sure. It's a sort of kit for kids, and I wanted to use some of the licensed fabrics that I've accumulated. And I wanted to incorporate embroidery designs for the cover. I've done more internet surfing than ever before and have found most of the designs I was looking for. But some of them show up on the computer and not on the zip drive. Some of them have stated that were for a 4x4 hoop, but when I load them into the embroidery machine, it tells me that the design "exceeds the embroidery area". Most of the people from whom I purchased have been patient, and so helpful. They have either sent me the size I needed, or refunded my purchase price. One has yet to be resolved.
So this week I've been working with the embroidery machine. I figure I'll stitch our 20 or so covers, and then this weekend I can get started on the kits. I'll post photos once they're finished.
