Create Machine Embroidery

Creating Machine Embroidery For My Home

With time marching on I am realizing that I have got nowhere with decorating the flat that I moved into at the end of the All Counties Challenge last year so, in a bid to get ahead, I thought that I would dedicate some time to creating the things that are going to go on the walls after I have managed to find the time to paint.

Yes, I could spend the time painting instead of making, but where is the fun in that?!

Lol, anyway, I am always enamoured by the look of framed embroidery so defo wanted to give that a go.

A Mini Mixed Bag Of Me On TV

Hallo you. Just wanted to pop onto the blog and let you know that I am currently wending my way down to Peterborough for a couple of brief appearances on Create and Craft TV tomorrow.


Both shows will be on Create and Craft TV tomorrow, Sunday 18th February 2018.

The first one, at 10am, features the GoPress & Foil range of goodies.

Not heard of this yet? Here are a few blogs posts from the archive where I show you what it’s all about.

The second will be at midday and will feature the CoLiDo 3D printer.

I have been using this for some time now and have created quite a catalogue of blog posts. Here is a selection in case you missed any.

You can, of course, watch the shows live in the UK via Sky 674, Freeview 23, Virgin 748, Freesat 813, Apple TV & Amazon Fire. Some shows may also be shown live in the US via Dish 221 & Roku.

Other regions of the world may be able to watch and shop via the live stream on Create and Craft TV. Depends on where you are I guess.

Anyhoo, hope you can join me for one, or other, or both?

Bye for now.

Designing A Pop Up Card For The Brother Scan N Cut In Canvas Workspace

For this week’s Scan N Cut Saturday I thought that I would share a way of creating a pop-up style card using Canvas Workspace.The journey starts in Canvas Workspace and then I went on to draw this with the Universal Pen Tool and cut this with my Brother Scan N Cut CM900, but you can create this with any model of the machine as we create the project in Canvas workspace and then transfer it to the machine.
