New embroidery machine

Gall Sewing has just notified me that my new embroidery machine is in, I am SEW excited!

I've been looking at different photos of T-shirts, etc. in catalogs and wondering how to embellish them, but then saying to myself that I should knit my own.

Definitely one skill I want to learn is the applique embroidery method. I think it would be interesting to create a collage-type garment, for example, a jacket with appliqued embroidered falling leaves. Might even mix and match some knitted appliques with fabric ones. I think the knitted appliques would work especially if an iron-on fusible interfacing was applied to the back of the knitted fabric.
