Hi Fran! Nice to see another machine embroider-er! I have a Brother machine, how about you?

I haven't done any digitizing myself. I'll go through my files and see what I can find. I recall finding hosta leaves in a set a while back, I'll have to try to remember where it was or which web site it was on.

Happy Stitching!!

Hi Jane, I also have a Brother. I use Embird to digitize, I am self taught so I always dread these projects, but once done I am usually thrilled.
Last Christmas, my DD draws Japanese anima so I digitized one of her girls and embroidered it onto a scarf... I didn't think she would really wear it, (shes a teen and it might not be cool), she wore it everyday last winter.. so that was a success... but of course it took me two weeks plus a hundred sew-outs to get it right.
So unless you happen to have a Hosta... I am going to have to do one...ugh!

Fingers crossed here you find it

Fran,
Sometimes I can't resist the challenge to use search engines on the InterNet for these questions. Sorry, I have not found a hosta yet, but I did find a great site that has some very nice patterns for free, for $1, $5, & $10. I have looked at almost every pattern in these groups.

Here is the site, in case, something else touches your fancy.

Thanks Pandora, I use that site quite often, and ann the gran, she has a great site with lots of free patterns.
I pretty much have resigned myself to digitizing it.. I just haven't gotten started yet. I usually save all my sewing for cold weather. The sewing list has been pileing up all summer long... wonder where I will fit seedlings in...

If you're still looking for one, I found digitized patterns for hostas on these two sites: www.emblibrary.com and www.embroiderypatterns.com.
