progress - slow but progress


I am still working on my wall hanging. It has been a challenge as I have found it very difficult to do the machine stitching on such tiny pieces of fabric. After much thought I have decided to try a different approach - using felt and beads etc to build up the small stitcheries. I am determined not to give up on this and Carol has been very helpful with ideas and encouragement.

Its all about you and your town. I really like what you have done. I have never really tried machine embroidery like you have used. I would probably mark the fabric for the blocks with all the shapes I need and then embroider it all in one big piece. I think it would give me better control over the fabric while trying to stitch it.

Looks great, but may be hand stitching would be easier?

I'm sure you'll make it look super Dian, you always do. Sorry it's been a bit of a challenge, but I can see it's got you in. It looks really nice from here. Hang in there.
