Learning to Embroidery

Well, actually, I am learning to operate the  Brother Embroidery machine I bought a few years ago. Not particularly expensive,  but capable of lots of things.  Just had to have it then, and then did not have time to use it.  Now, I have time.  So I spent some time downloading designs, transferring to the card reader, to the card- and Voila!  just pick the design you want and go for it. So, I did monogram my little apron that I wear when I clean, and experimented with a few other ideas. In all, I am satisfied that I at least sat down, and reacquainted myself with this little jewel.

I have been working on a vinyl project lately. A friend of mine is a competition cooker, with his smoker and grill and all loaded on a trailer, he takes some weekends to travel and show off his wonderful cooking skills. I made two custom aprons for him to take on the trail. they are especially nice because they totally protect clothing. I am posting a picture of the aprons sent to him.  Lots of work, but really cool. I have made a total of 22 of these little jewels.
