Trying Some Embroidery

I finally found some time to get the embroidery machine out of the box where it’s been sitting for probably a year.  The lettering is from the built in library.  The dive flag though, I created in some open source software and then downloaded into the machine.  I’m pretty pleased with the results.  I’m looking forward to what else I can create! 🙂
