I'm finding new stitches . . .
. . . on my sewing machine that I really like! I have a Bernina artista 185, and I've been experimenting with different stitches to find those that can be used for machine applique. The stitch pictured here has been the most fun to play with -- it covers the edge of the applique piece nicely and gives a whimsical dimension to the embroidery. I plan to sew tiny beads at the points of the stitches (a little insane, you're thinking), and I think the effect is going to tickle me.
