    I'm happy enough with my first try---some parts are right on, while others wander a bit off course, but I'm just going to say it was for a hairy effect. :wink: :lol:

    Besides the twists and turns, it was tricky to see black on black--I was sewing blind in some spots.

    Thanks for all your advice!! :D

    Admin/moderators--I started the topic here, so thought I should keep it here rather than in the photo section? Maybe that's not how I should be thinking. :?: If I don't find it here, I'll know it was moved. :D

    What a great job! I love using that stitch on my machine. You did a great job on the turns and curves.

    Good for you for trying it. I'm still to afraid to try... don't wanna mess up my Stairway top. Yours looks good.

    I'll try practicing the blanket and satin stitch on some scraps. :wink:

    Your blanket stitching looks GREAT!! It can be difficult going around curves, especially small ones, but your's looks really good!

    Great job !!! I have a difficult time with curves also. I wonder if shortening the length of the stitch would make it easier to turn.
