Thank you, Lisala. I fell in love with the drawing (it was black sketch) in the book I found in local library. Book was about heirloom hand-made appliqu and embellishment. I don' t recall the name of it.

I love design and color. Did you use a preprogrammed machin design or free motion? I have a sewing, and embroidery machine and I never embroidered anything. I didn't know if you could free motion and didn't even think to see if I could. Brother machines aren't as flexible as, a singer were you can buy other name brand types of feet and such. I had to special order my free motion foot.

Dear Chinaalia3, thank you for your comment. It is a free motion project. Now I know that anyone "can free motion" - I remember a lady who been my inspiration since the childhood did fantastic embroidered pictures on old feet-operated singer without any foot at all - just plain needle. I tried it too, however it is required a lot of practice and a good coordination. My next quest will be to buy a spring needle from Shmetz and try it instead of darning foot - I still don't like how foot sometimes blocks the view of the working area. Good luck with your projects!
