While at the beach, I kept finding gorgeous swirling patterns of colour on various logs that carried into a felting experiment which I feel quite excited to enhance further with stitch. I am also continuing to learn about what my Pfaff can do. This bendable light is proving to be very useful - I've had it for at least a year and finally put it on!
The testing out of automatic stitches has built up to over 100, with many more yet to go. There is such variety and I hope to read my Pfaff's manual to further my understanding of what else
is possible. And these cotton threads arrived in the mail - but I will have to supplement the reds to have a wider range for the textile art course I'm taking.
Off to shop...

i love that Aurifil thread, but can only use it in my bobbin, so i have to sew upside down :)It's great for machine and hand work!

Thanks, Deanna - yes, those stitches are full of potential!

Thanks, Penny.

Arlee - only in your bobbin - why is that?
