Embroidered Gift Photo

26 October 2017

A cousin of mine have been working in Germany for quite sometime now and she will be there for more than two years still and so I will be seeing her again for the third time if I am not mistaken and so I planned this beautiful embroidered gift photo of her and her daughter. I always ask the same digitiser on http://www.etsy.com she is from Russia. Anyway, this embroidered photo took sometime to embroider although I was able to finish it in a day which is great because my machine can maximise stitches up to 800 spm but in this case I only used 500 spm so that is quite ok. I was able to find a new photo frame in our apartment which is still wrapped as if it was just been bought recently so that is a good thing. In these photos you will see the threads that I used and the sequence of embroidery that I made.

DIY Dollhouse with lights

13 August 2017

We built/assembled, together with my eldest daughter, a diy dollhouse with lights as a gift for my youngest daughter for her eighth birthday. It took us at least ten days to finish it, why you would ask well we are always doing it when everybody else’s asleep and finish it early morning. This dollhouse was ordered at http://www.banggood.com. The name of the dollhouse is love castle and yes I modified it. I used popsicle sticks small and big, bought paints, varnish and adhesive foil. Took fabrics from my stash instead of using the one that is included inside the box. And yes I even took a video of the everyday updates we made and of course you will see the finish product.

 

Embroidered Wedding Photo

21 July 2017

It has been ten years since we got married in a catholic church in the Philippines. Although we got first married civilly here in Belgium a year before. I still remember all the preparations and delegation of a lot of stuff with my sister and BFF because I only stayed there for quite awhile. And now ten years has passed. So I thought of embroidering a gift for hubby but it seems like he discovered it while I was preparing for it because he and I shared our google photos and there was a notification on his side whenever I take photos, so there no longer a surprise. Anyway, what matters he likes the gift.

 

Embroidered Photo

27 June 2017

An embroidered photo gifts for my eldest daughters friends since they are all “graduating” primary. I ask an embroidery digitizer from www.etsy.com to have it digitized. My hoop size here is 6″ x 10″ and used a black Isacord embroidery thread. My machine have different number of speeds for stitching and in this case I used them all to speed up but at the beginning I do always use the slowest which is 350spm (175minutes) until I increased it as time goes by due to deadline purposes. The fabric that I used here is from Ikea – Minna, from my stash.
