Driftwood warned me it would become addictive, this free-motion lark, and she is right.
My mind is buzzing with all the things I can make now with the addition of some sketchy words incorporated in them. After a bit of time spent playing around with stitch length and speed, I am loving the way these words appear in their imperfect, sketchy way on my fabric. Sometimes, they turn out just about right the first time and sometimes I have to go over them again to cover up any mistakes, but I think this adds to the charm of them. It’s like doodling with my machine.
At the beginning of the year, I left Mouse a comment on her post about words and wishes asking her if she’d mind if I did the same, to which she said to go right ahead. So I took her advice and quite literally sewed them into my life.
I’ve hung my mobile above my sewing machine, where it is twirling gently (hence the slightly blurry photos!) and hopefully releasing these things into my space.
