My Cuppa

As much as I love to sew, I think I can say that I am equally in love with embroidery. I’ve spent a little bit of time playing with my machine, but I haven’t really worked on a lot of ‘finished projects’. Last night I completed one – Urban Thread’s Cuppa Tea teatowel. I picked this one for several reasons: 1) I really wanted to use a design that wasn’t in the machine so I could try uploading designs from a flash drive, 2) I’ve never used an Urban Threads design and really wanted to see how they stitched up (this one was free), and 3) I wanted something large (come to find out the 4.83″w x 6.33″h design still doesn’t fill up the hoop – that’s one big hoop!) with several colors that I could ‘swap’ out from the original.

Overall, things went very smoothly and I’m really pleased with the end result! Not only did the Urban Threads design stitch out beautifully, but I totally appreciate the automatic thread cutter on the machine. Now, what can I embellish next?

    That really came out beautifully, Stacy! While I have tended to put my nose up about machine embroidery, since I love hand embroidery, a recent demo gave me cause to rethink my uppity attitude. The new machines are pretty darn amazing — you’re a lucky girl to have that new sewing machine!

      They really are amazing – it’s amazing how much it’s improved in even the past 7 or 8 years since I really used one. I think I’m totally hooked!
