Digitizing & Insomnia

It is late…dammit. Earlier today on into the evening I was so tired I could barely function. But I did not allow myself to take a nap so that I would sleep well. Made no difference as I am obviously not sleeping. I fully understand how folks become psychotic maniacs when sleep eludes them.

But, instead of going postal, I have been amusing myself by digitizing. I have a friend for whom I am going to embroider the fabric for her wedding dress. We have been looking at embroidery collections, but I have not seen anything that is as fine and wonderful as it should be for her. So, I digitized something for her to give her an idea of what we can do.

Here is just an idea of how we can cover the fabric.

Here is the basic digitized piece in a wreath of three.

Just for the hell of it, I tried the auto digitize function in my software function again…not really sure why as it never works well, and sure enough it did not. I keep waiting for the day that my EXPENSIVE software will do all the work for me…not holding my breath, tho’. It’s ok. I love doing the digitizing myself.

After I sent off the pics to my friend, sleep was still nowhere to be found, so I did a couple more.

This was fun.

This was complicated, and if decide to use it somehow, I must go back in and clean up a few things.

Maybe the next time I can’t sleep I will go embroider these in the sewing dungeon.

    Ok I have insomnia too…is it contagious? These are lovely, have you actually stitched them out yet? Would love to see that as well. Wish I was sewing…but don’t want to wake the family so this will have to do. Thanks for sharing. hpyswr
