    wow, this is slow... rip and start again.
    will freestyle around where I will applique the sun, birds, flowers, leaves, stems... not wanting to put all that work if the free stlye does not work out.

    slow... very slow. not loving it.

    camera dark for free stlye, eveyone is asleep and can't turn on all the lights to flood the living room. will wake up the dog, grandkids, husband, daughter..

    leaves not one this picture

    I think you are doing really well...I haven't tried this yet. Pretty new to machine work, I am just doing simple lines and trying not to fall off the ditches! Perhaps a cup of tea and a rest might be an idea (chocolate could be helpful!).

    heh, I watched a series of utubes before I tried, talked about preparing your machine, moving your hands and shoulders, singing a song.. lots of great tips first.

    I hope you continue to work on this and see it through to completion. It is beautiful, and so very unique.... a true work of art to be treasured, for sure.

    Keep it up and please post a final picture when you are done.

    This is beautiful. I have not tried that style yet but feel I need to learn that too. Great job.

    Does freestyle mean, you make it up as you go, or do you have a pattern you are using? Just curious? I like design, I think it's coming out very nice, will watch for photo updates! Keep at it, nice work!
