... I'm planning to regularly shame myself by showing the results of each lesson from my Craftsy course as I complete it. I am hoping that over the time I am doing the course, I will get better at it. Heaven only knows, looking at this first example, there is plenty of room for improvement . This was almost finished before I decided to quilt my finger in as an additional design feature.
I am very happy with the tension, but not so happy about the fact that the fabric is drawing in a lot, and unevenly. Maybe that's something to do with me not pinning enough, or is it something else? If any one can make any suggestions, I'd be very grateful.
I am finding it tricky to work out the relationship between the speed of my hands and my machine to give me decent sized, consistent stitches, but I hope that will come with time. I am also giving myself shoulder ache if I do too much at one time as I guess I'm tensing up too much.
Anyway, without wittering on any more, here is the piece from Lesson 2. The first photo shows the top, and the second shows the bottom. There are good bits and there are bad!
