The gate was fun to make. There is so much detail with the embroidery it really makes a difference.
Now the sad news, My brand new little red iron broke!! I am not having good luck with irons lately. This will make the second one in two months that broke. My little Rowenta I did break myself. I pressed to hard too many times and the handle broke!! But the good news, I bought my new iron from P3 Designs and she is sending me a replacement ASAP!! Pearl is the best! Not only did she come up with the wonderful applique technique that I was taught by Sandy at Smith Owen but she sells wonderful products too! At least I have enough pieces ready to stitch so that should keep me busy until my replacement arrives.
