Hi Jolette - I am on a more active embroidery team. Not sure of the name . . .maybe "currently working on" . . .See you, and good luck on the weight. I'm finding the team that is following the "100 days weigh tloss diet" book most helpful. I think it's on an "emotional Eaters" team.
I just discovered your link and think this is wonderful. I love to embroider and do quilting. I embroider stamped embroidery, I have a machine but haven't learned to use it yet. In fact, I wonder why I bought one, when I find it so relaxing to embroider.
Hi All. I'm learning both embroidery & Spark. Havn't found anyone in my area that does needlework except quilting. I made the mistake of choosing a large complicated cross stitch project first. Wow, needed way more info. A year, and smaller projects later, I'm still afraid to try a large one again. I've lost 50 pounds in the last 2 years, with 45 more to go. I've been in spark a short time.

BACK TO SPARKS, BEEN SLOFFING OFF FOR 2 WEEKS. I KNOW I CAN DO IT. I LOVE TO MACHINE EMBROIDERY. I GOT MY MACHINE THE END OF MAY. ADDED SOFTWARE TO MY MACHINE IN JUNE AND IAM HAVING SO MUCH FUN WITH IT, I AM A PRESCHOOL TEACHER,OFF UNTIL LABOR DAY, SO I AM USING MY MACHINE A LOT. I AM WORKING ON STUFF OR CHRISTMAS. I'VE DONE SOME TOWELS AND PILLOW FOR A WEDDING SHOWER, THEY TURNED OUT REALLY GREAT. I NEED THIS MUCH ENTHUSIUM FOR MY WEIGHT LOSS. TODAY IS A NEW DAY AND I CAN DO IT!!!1
I've been doing embroidery for quite a while now. Very new to spark people and still trying to figure it all out. An ATW friend pointed the way here and I hope it keeps me motivated to lose the weight and get healthy. I was doing good until I tore my knee up the day after Easter, surgery went well but healing has been a nightmare with complications, so I gained back a lot of the weight I had lost....but it's getting better and I will succeed!!! Okay I'm off to figure out my next quilt which usually incorparates some embroidery. Sorry to have written a novel...everyone have a great day!!!!
