Experiment time

My mother's sewing machine is like a dream come true. I haven't had one tension tantrum, and it will accept any sort of fluffy cotton you care to thread up. I've been experimenting with the 'fancy' stitches and filling up the space with thread.

These pieces are sewn on thin calico, with no backing. Just need to find a way the present them for wall hanging.

Having generally advocated that the sewing machine is the 5th horseman of the apocalypse, I must say: I was WRONG!!! Your work is elegant, sensitive, and perfectly captures the "hand" feel of sketching that I see so little of in machine work. I have been converted to a fan -- Bravo! Victoria
