What advice would you give someone starting this project? Put a new, sharp embroidery needle in your machine, pick a design that is not dense, let your imagine go wild and most of all, bring your sense of humor to the machine!

Thank you! I LOVE your designs! I think you're a genius. I adore my tealight cover sets that I made for the family, the holiday assortment, Thanksgiving/Fall assortment, Halloween assortment and especially the Nativity Set. I have some of your other designs on my To Do list. Your designs are wonderful and your .pdf instructions are clear and thorough. I shared your website with friends in my Sew Fun club, who fell in love with the tealight covers and I think I generated a lot of business for you. Well deserved! Your holiday designs worked well on TP because they are light stitch counts and I had fun working with them. I am a HUGE fan of yours!

Thank you Lenas. I appreciate you spreading the word about my designs. I'm so glad you like them. I would love to use this photo in one of my newsletters and on my site's facebook page with your permission (giving you credit of course). Thanks,

Absolutely, go ahead and use the photo. You can also let your customers know that I used 2 layers of medium weight stabilizer under the TP and topper stabilizer on top (the kind that looks like plastic wrap). All were hooped along with the TP, which was a double layer. After I got the project out of the hoop, I carefully removed the topper along the outside edges, but left it inside the design. Gives it a nice sheen plus protects the paper.
