I have a light tablet that I love! It so portable and easy to use.Here you can see I have my design
sheet laying under the fabric, ready to be traced. I use a pencil normally.
Here's my chicken design, all traced and ready to go. I am
using #12 pearl cotton.
I love using the orange for the outline on the dog.
Just am loving this puppy design.

I don't included a stitching guide for doing this in embroidery. Have some fun with the pattern and stitch the designs using a variety of colors that match your fabric and it will turn out wonderful. I am using a #12 pearl cotton. I mainly have been doing a backstitch, but every so often I do a lazy daisy stitch to make my flowers. My grandma was big into embroidery. I am blessed to have a set of dishtowels and pillowcases that she made for me when I go married. They are sitting in my linen closet. I hardly ever use them because I want them to stay 'nice' since grandma is no longer with us. I remember sitting at the kitchen table talking over coffee while she embroidered. I was so lucky to live close to her and grandpa when Mark and I were first married. I loved visiting with them whenever I could. So many wonderful memories.
Have a wonderful day!
