I have an embroidery machine too, but have not tried FSL yet. Those are lovely.
Beautiful! Your Mom's tradition is a lovely one. What did you use as a stabilizer? Speattle, if you get the right stabilizer, these are very easy.
Speattle Oh you should try these. Super easy I some times have to slow my machine down so that they look nice and one of those I'm actually not happy with the back, but you can do a bunch in one hooping making it really nice.
Chrissybugs I'm not sure whether I used Floriani or Jenny Haskins. Those are the 2 that my 2 local dealers carry. They are a fabric like stabilizer. I'm still testing stabilizers to see if they are my favorites. What do you use? Some of moms traditions only followed me lol. Only one sister inlaw seems to be crafty. But I really enjoy it.
