What a productive day I had planned! I created a fun embroidery project using the new Calligraphy Project Designer Software program. Plus, I unearthed a secret stash of fabric and thread. I grabbed my trusty Snap Hoop Monster, some polymesh stabilizer and some spray adhesive. It’s time to start stitching!
Rather than trim the large piece of fabric, I decided to hoop it all and just trim later. Besides, I’m not entirely sure what I’ll make with the stitch out.
After loading the Snap Hoop Monster on the machine, I pressed the magic “Go” button and left the embroidery studio to let the machine do all the work.
But the machine kept beeping for attention. I had to babysit it every few minutes.
I wasn’t overly thrilled with my thread color choices so I decided to abort the mission. I removed the hoop and as I was carrying it to Eileen’s office to ask “WHAT WENT WRONG?” I noticed the back of the hoop.
Oops! I accidentally hooped the excess fabric to the back of the hoop, created a double layer of fabric. No wonder the embroidery machine kept beeping!
I didn’t give up on stitching the design—especially given the quotation! I did change thread colors and am happy with the results.
