An embroidered photo gifts for my eldest daughters friends since they are all "graduating" primary. I ask an embroidery digitizer from www.etsy.com to have it digitized. My hoop size here is 6" x 10" and used a black Isacord embroidery thread. My machine have different number of speeds for stitching and in this case I used them all to speed up but at the beginning I do always use the slowest which is 350spm (175minutes) until I increased it as time goes by due to deadline purposes. The fabric that I used here is from Ikea - Minna, from my stash.
