Happy St. David’s Day! (Dydd Hapus Gŵyl Dewi)

It’s March the 1st today and it is such a beautiful spring-like day here in the south of England.  I have been working on designs for our four patron saints recently – the idea came from a digitizer in the US who wanted something for St. Patrick.  I thought it would be good to have a design for all four saints.

Here is my gift to you for St.David’s Day.

Designed to celebrate St. David's Day as the daffodil is the national flower of Wales.

Designed to celebrate St. David’s Day as the daffodil is the national flower of Wales.

It is in two formats on my website.  daffodils.PES and daffodils.ART  (use the blue arrow on the right to download the files and click on “download” if you get an error message from Google – it doesn’t know about embroidery files but they do download and then open in the embroidery software).  Or download it directly here:  daffodils files.

If you need it in any other format, please leave a comment and I will reply to you.

 

The text around the daffodils translates to:

“This land of my fathers is dear to me”

This is the first line of the Welsh National Anthem “Land of My Fathers”.  If you would like to hear it, please follow this link:-

      Dear Mandy,
      Do you have an embroidery software? You can change the format of designs with it.
      If not, then I suggest you download the free BERNINA ARTlink 9 software, which lets you convert embroidery files to a lot of different formats, Jef included. You can download it here:
      https://www.bernina.com/artlink9

      When you have installed Artlink, you can read about how to use the software in the online manual.

      Kind regards, Ramona from BERNINA International

        Hi Ramona,

        ArtLink will not convert to the .JEF extension.  I just downloaded V9 and there is no option for Janome files.  However if you use Ambassador Pulse it will convert for you.  I have also replied to Mandy.

      Hi Mandy, please let me have your email address and i will send you the file in >JEF format.  Alternativelyt you can do it yourself is you open it with Ambassador Pulse and then save as a .JEF file to your computer.

    Thanks Hilary – say Happy Birthday for me!
    There are a few jump stitches in this design because of the colour changes but hopefully not too many. Enjoy!

    Oh Jan, I am quite emotional listening to the singing! Thank you for such a beautiful design. It is my brother’s birthday today – and he is a David. Looking forward to the others.
