Curves, circles and spirals

Getting back to stitching again feels good :) I've decided to skip on over chapter six for now as I really need Jemimah back before I can do the work needed for that justice, so for now I'm going to continue on with chapter seven and some free motion fun.

You might remember back here I was have fun doodling some designs, well for the next stitch sample the task is to turn one of those designs into stitch.I'm happy to say that Beatrice is handling the free motion stuff like a dream. She doesn't have drop feed dog function but she does have a darning plate to cover the dogs. I don't have a freemotion foot for her either so I'm using her with no foot attachment at all, am being super careful watching where my fingers go!!

Sometimes I get so absorbed in what I'm doing I loose track of everything else. Last night I was busy stitching away, when I looked up and the sun had disappeared.Luckily I have Pip to come and tell me when enough is enough. You can't really see his eyes in the photo as it was so dark, but he's giving me the 'sewing time is over, Pippy pamper time starts now and will be lasting for at least the next hour so you may as well turn that machine off!' look.


  1. Looks like you were having fun. What are you using for your base fabric?

  2. This is so interesting! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Good to hear that Beatrice is behaving well. Be really careful with the free motion embroidery without foot! I used to do that too with my old machine, but now I've got a foot. Have a nice Sunday.
