QUEEN OF HEARTS JOURNAL





I treated myself to an Baby Lock Embellisher Machine for my birthday in October, and believe it or not I didn't get around to using it until yesterday!!!!!
Well!!!!! I didn't realize what I was missing. I spent the day doodling around with the fabric and it started looking like a queen( In my mind anyway!), so I added a few hearts , a face cabochon and a hand.... some beads and VOILA this is what I ended up with.."QUEEN OF HEARTS" Isn't she lovely!!??
The Embellisher machine uses no thread It has a circle of 7 barbed needles, and when you step on the pedal it punches the fabric or wool rovings or any pretty bits you want to add onto the base fabric. It is embedded so tightly it won't come out ... imagine! and NO THREAD!! I can see where i will be having more fun with this in the future so stay tuned.... BUT what I really wanted to say was I will be including this Journal in my give-a-way for entering the reindeer contest. If you haven't played the game make sure you do so your name can go in the pot for the draw on New Year's Eve....GOOD LUCK.

Good Afternoon Maggie,
Oh you did a great job. When I first seen the picture, my first thought was "The Queen of Hearts". I have never heard of an Embellisher machine before. "THANK YOU" for sharing your crafts with us. I can't wait to see what else you will be making. I am going to add you to my blogroll if you don't mind. I have a couple of other Canadian Blogging Friends as well. "THANK YOU" again for stopping by the other day. Take care my friend and have a great Friday. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

You're very fortunate to have the Embellisher. I sort of get the idea from your description but I guess I'd have to see a demonstration of how it works for a better understanding.

I will keep following your progress to see what can be accomplished with this machine.

All the best

I knew if I got going on the embellisher I would not get other things done which HAD to be done.VBG
In spite of the magic of Christmas I always breathe a sigh of relief when it's over... amd I getting too old for all this excitement?? don't answer that!! HA
((((hugs))))

Maggie R said...

Hi Inga... Thanks for stopping by. I should set up the Embellisher with a project I am working on and let you see in more detail how it works. I have a ton of ideas floating around in my head but I will do that later as right now I am trying to get some more things ready to list on my Etsy Online Shop. Honestly I need a 48 hour day!!!
Best wishes for the New Year
((((hugs))))

Love your Queen of Hearts....that machine sounds like a lot of fun. I'm going to have to see if I can find a place around here to see how it works. Thanks for sharing your lovely art!

Christina said...

Maggie, Another skill to keep you awake at night!!
Queen of Hearts is a wonderful piece of work and your new embellisher sounds like a lot of fun, but how did you manage to have a new piece of kit for so long without giving it a test drive!! - wonderful results though.

Jackie said...

That looks like so much fun. I may have to keep my eye open for an Embellisher machine.

Hope you are keeping well. What is the weather like there? Are you getting lots of snow?
