new toy learning curve
Well, I got my new to me Brother pe 770 embroidery machine and I feel like I'm back at square one. Because I purchased it used from a private seller, there were no lessons and while I feel like I'm a pretty good do it myself kind of girl, I'm at the hair pulling stage again.
I can't get the snowflakes to work with just the water soluble stabilizer. Supposedly you sew them, then wash away the stabilizer and have the free form lace to hang from the Christmas tree. I've tried two different stabilizers and both of them just poked holes and made a tangled mess of thread.
I won't give up though because one day embroidery will be as easy as sewing, quilting, crocheting and knitting. Maybe even as easy as walking and talking :)
