Here is my (unfinnished) first go at Free Machine embroidery. Have wanted to try this for ages but had no idea how. Then went to You Tube and watched a couple of tutorials and voila! It is so much fun (basically drop the feed dog, fix a darning foot (or not) and you're off. It's like drawing but the needle and thread are your pencil). It's going to be a long time before I get sick of this.
PS these are the first photos taken with my Nikon D3000 saved up for on ebay!!!
