This picture shows already finished work piece. It is beautiful Forester badge embroidery design executed on piece of dark fabric. Contrast color scheme is very good solution to underline original embroidered picture. It included many element perfectly combined with each other. They are forest moose, compass that looks like traditional dreamcatcher of native Americans and mystic triangle. Together they create complex composition that reminds illustration to old legend.

When I upgraded to Tajima Illustrator Extreme I was upset to find that the End Lock list no longer included Triangle & Diamond, it just had Basic and Line. When I reported it I was questioned why I needed them. Being new to the business it made me wonder how and when I should really be using them. What upset me about the missing diamond was I like to use the diamond at a big size stitch (2 or 3 mm) for locking off temporary tensioning or holding stitches as its easier to cut them out afterwards. The Line lock is my default general purpose lock as I find it useful for hiding in the end of satin / steil. But I also find that it stresses the fabric and can cause a pucker or even tear, particularly on weaker and stretch fabrics and especially if placed at the end of a satin or on a corner (I always move it back away from ends and corners now) Diamond and Triangle I use to avoid stressing an aukward fabric, and if necessary will put them on top of the satin stitch at the end (yes I know it shows slightly but I reckon its far better than tearing a hole in a shirt after an hours stitching) I also use 1 or 2 mm diamond and triangle for start and finish of sequin stitches as I use the very fine nylon monofilament which is a single strand so cannot pass through itself to lock, and pulling it tight in a small default 0.6mm line lock appears to overstress almost any fabric. So when and how should I really use the different lock stitches ? ? ? ? ?
