My New Toy!!

  When I attended the Nancy Zieman For the Love of Sewing Event in January, we were able to go to a class using the Babylock Embellisher. I didn't buy one at the time, but I sure wanted one. If you read my post then, this is what I made in the class with Pam Mahshie. She is a fabulous teacher!

 We made the back on the Ellisimo Gold. The front is made with the Embellisher. It's like needle felting, except this machine has 12 needles. The best thing about it is that you can use all 12 or ever how many you want to use. You wouldn't believe what all is punched into this bag. It looks totally different after you punch it.
  You don't have to use any thread in the machine or any bobbins! Yippee!
  Lucky for me a lady at my Babylock Club decided to sell hers. So I got it last week, and I've only had a little time to play with it. Here are some pics of the machine and a little fun I had. When I finish this piece, I think I will make a vest for my granddaughter's AG doll.
 I used some of the tails that I'd saved from doing machine embroidery, and they do great!







 The added bonus is that it's signed by Nancy Zieman herself!

Hi Shirley,
I just found your blog. I recognized your name in Eileen's blog comments.

You're so talented. I love seeing all of the things you've made.

Congratulations on 5 years!! What a blessing!
