On Fire

Tonight I have my grandson and I went to WalMart and purchased a little tee shirt for him and he loves basketball so I got this design from Grand  Slam Design and knew it would just fit him to a T. The sewing was going great until I ran out of bobbin and then I couldn't get the Fire lined back up right but he is a 5 yr old so he will not mind at all. What is the saying practice makes perfect well I will keep at it.

 This is where the re got off it was really going to be a cute image but again he is only 5 and he likes it.
 His name is Kendrian but he changed his name to KD to go with the basketball player here in OKLA
OKC Thunder.......

I wanted to do a layout of my grandson's graduation and Emma had a nice challenge.

I used some old paper from my stash Karen Foster and Paper Studio. The little caps are from Recollection, I added some journal lines on the star cut with my E2 basic shapes. The owl and the title were cut from Happy Graduation Cricut cartridge and added some goggle eyes in blue to match his cap and gown.

Pfaff Creative 4.0

Well I must say this new machine Pfaff - Creative 4.0, it is so much better than the Singer but it has a learning curve. During the first week of me getting this toy (thank you hubby) I had to take it back to the shop. The first machine the screen would not come on and I just thought it was me. The second day the embroidery arm had a safety piece in the back that the book said nothing about. I have signed up for the next two available classes to take to learn more on this machine. I have noticed their isn't many YouTube video's over but advertisement and that doesn't help at all. So here is what I have been playing with so far.

This was my first one to practice on it is a tee shirt with a Caterpillar and I was trying to put the name Sierra on it but I had walked away and it was sewing but it was knotting up on the bottom.

This was an image in the machine but when I got to Jeremy's name, the J was to high and the letters was to big.

This last towel I really like how it came out but I should have turned the flower down in the direction of my daughter's name but like I said it is all a learning process for me but I will get it.

Graduation Card and gift bag

My grandson is graduating tomorrow from Pre K so I finished up his card last night. I cut the bird from Birds Parade cartridge at 3 and I used DCWV High School Mat stack. I had some balloons brads in my stash that I put on it then glued some twine under it and ran it back behind his gown. On the gift bag I had a paper studio  sheet to cover the lunch bag and I cut the owl from Graduation cartridge at 4. I added red stickles to both of the cuts. I also used a wobble for the bird on the card.
Since my daughter is a single working mom I decided to go and purchase him two games for the Wii that we bought him last month for his birthday. I got him a basketball game and football so this little boy is going to be one happy little of graduation to follow this weekend.

My Black is Beautiful!  My Black is my STYLE!  Is your style reflected in your clothing?  Your hair?  Your art?  Your home?  How do you define it?  Does it show in various of your life??? Tell us all about YOUR STYLE

This challenge was so easy I just needed to get up and do it. My style is BLING, I love to bling my hubby doesn't like it but I love it so here is my page. I used the same paper pack for all my black is beautiful challenges Colorbox. I bought the letter BLING from Joann's they were only $1 but it was embellishment for a dog's collar.  I also used some Micheal's recollection bling

One last time for the Singer

I am so feed up with this Singer machine. It is boxed up and ready to go back to Joann's tomorrow. For some reason tonight the tension was so loose on it and I had adjusted the feed. I started out with a tee shirt and I made this praying hands loved how it came out.

So then next I had a coffee cups for a kitchen towel. That is when the trouble started.The towel looks okay but I should have taken a picture of the back it is all knotted up.

But I got on my Brother machine to but the word Coffee....So next I tried a white towel to add a cross and this is when I had threw in the towel.
 If you see how that brown looks just loose threads not good.

So right after that I did put the machine back in its box. I went and set back down at my Brother machine to do this design that is built in my machine and I just love how easy this machine is. Only reason I need to upgrade is that mine will only do a 4x4 hoop and I will have to buy the software to import designs in.

Now isn't that beautiful

3rd Singer Futura

do a simple flip flop design on this machine well no such luck
sorry for the light but it is night time

 Do you see how the thread is positioned well in order for mine not to break hubby had to hold it while the machine was going. I broke 3 needles on this machine and multiples thread breakage.

This is the back of the tee shirt for some reason the yellow thread was knotting up so I couldn't even finish the design
This was the front I really thought it was going to come out pretty but guess what this machine will be going back as well.

So I stopped at the sewing store and priced some better machines. So my next one will not be a singer at all.

Singer Futura

Last night I got on my machine

to embroidery and I purchased some images online and this one was Superman and my machine broke the needle 4 times and I stop counting on the thread breakage. On one of the yahoo groups they stated that it was a bad batch of machines that had went out and I do believe I got one of them so I have decided to send it back to HSN. I will go to my local store and get me another machine and pay two arms and a leg for a machine since I really do like this.

I really like this eye but I was having so much problems with the letters another problem.

I really like this shoe but I was afraid to try any lettering on it..........Well it doesn't matter it will be going next week.

I really like how the card came out. I used the stamp set from CTMH ~ Everyday Life set.

I didn't do to much this weekend scrappy. We had neighborhood garage sales all over plus we had our 5 yr old grandson with us. So once we were finish I managed to do one layout of hubby. If you knew my hubby you would know how much he has invested into Superman so when I joined CTMH I had to make sure I had all of the superman paper, embellishments they had now I just need to do a mini for him.

So later on I got on my Singer and Brother embroidery machine and played around. I am giving myself two weeks to make sure I really want this machine. I really love my brother but it is an older model and I can't use a big hoop with it. I can't scan or use any jpegs with it so that was the reason I got the singer machine but I am really thinking about going with a bigger and better model......well this is the tee shirts and towels I played with Saturday night.

Well be blessed
