Machine embroidery

Not something that I have done much of other than using the straight stitch, zig-zag and satin stitch. 

I've decided it's about time to get "with it" so to speak and at least become conversant with the stitches on my machine.  I'm using my Scottie Dog seasonal wall hanging series for the experiment.   

The summer block now has faggot stitch along all the rays of sunshine. "Scottie" is attached but needs a collar, and I just have to decide if I want to do grass.

"How many times around the block ?" that I posted about before is going to represent spring and will be next in line for stitching some of the grassy/flower areas.

Winter is in the middle of being sewn together and I have not started autumn yet.
