Very Very Very Exciting News...

No, we're not expecting #4!! No, we didn't win the Florida lottery when we were on vacation. And no, I am not training for a marathon. Below is the first official Gulledge applique design (which feels like another baby). YEAH!! After many hours of reading, studying, learning, asking questions, trial and error, etc etc etc... my husband Jeff completed his first design! It is now available for purchase at! For as long as I've been doing this, which really isn't that long compared to some, my motto has always been "the simpler the better". I love some simple designs!! After searching and pondering lots and lots of clipart, we purchased a set and chose this as our first project. You can't get much simpler than this!! The name was added just for fun ~ any and all feedback and suggestions are appreciated!

This doesn't change anything at the ole blogspot! I'm still doing the same embroidery I've always done, only now I'll have designs here and there to offer that are our own. At first they will be offered on Etsy. No grand website until we get our feet on the ground. Not to mention this digitizing adventure is mostly Jeff's and he's still in the cabinet business M-F!! My job is technical support, testing, answering questions, etc. We're starting out very simple and will hopefully expand as we learn more and more.
Another thing that does not change is that I am still a huge fan and supporter and makeshift advertiser for Embroidery Boutique!! If it wasn't for Rachel the above airplane would not even be possible! She has been fabulous at offering support, answering questions and giving us guidance as far as where to even begin!! From my experience with sampling for her and in general doing applique and embroidery for all of you (the blood sweat and tears of this business), Jeff & I kind of came to the realization that this might be a good thing to learn!! We're very excited!!
