New Sewing Machine









I've been having fun playing with my new sewing machine over the past week. I love using the darning foot and just drawing freely with it. Here are my first efforts - although I must start taking it seriously from now on and do something sensible!

(I have used the technique on my ATCs though...see post above.)

Ooo, I love it! Especially the tree. Do you have a special attachment that allows you to free sew? I'm new at sewing, but I'd love to try this!

Love what you are creating with yourt new sewing machine Linda (love the effects on your ATC's on the post above).

Have you seen Cathy Cullis's work (www.novembermoon.com). Your faces remind me of her work. And you are both very talented (very).
