The blessing of three new grandchildren this year (well, one is just days weeks away) is the responsibility of making Christmas stockings to hang by the fireplace with the rest of the family!
I begin with an embroidered pentagon and then just randomly add strips around it log cabin style.
When I fill the top area, I move to the foot always using a solid for the toe and heel.
Once I cover the tricot pattern underneath, I trim all the edges and then I use all those fancy stitches on my machine to add the look of hand embroidery!
The next stage would be to embroider the name on the lining, sew it together and turn the cuff down so the name shows.
ENTER A BIG GLITCH!
When we got the new computer because a nasty virus/worm ate our old one, the new system (Windows 10) no longer can support the OLD program which my embroidery software is.
New software is very expensive. Out of my budget expensive. I have two choices, or maybe three but I will wait for that; I am now looking for an old laptop that will run my old software.
I have all the old code and the dongle to match if only I can get an old one running!
Time is of the essence and I will keep you posted as to the conclusion to this dilemma!
