Right, so I decided to give it a go - quite frankly I'm lucky to have escaped with all my fingers intact, I was all over the place  Shocked Grin

I didn't hoop the fabric first - presumably that's why it's gathered itself in places? I was using a double layer of calico. If I use a hoop next time, do I just move it around the fabric as I do different areas? I like not having the constraints of a hoop tho  Huh

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thank you  Grin  It was a really rough attempt and I didn't work anything out beforehand - which is fairly obvious, given that I ran out of space at the top  Roll Eyes Grin

I'll try hooping the fabric next time and sketching the ideas out with a disappearing pen. I really enjoyed the attempt - although I sew a LOT, I rarely do anything approaching embroidery. It's a novel experience using a sewing machine to 'draw' - I can see why people get really into it!

Kittykill! I just looked at your blog - I am very envious of your tattoos (I'm wanting a big one over my shoulder and down my arm, but need to save the cash first) and I did giggle at your very ambitious list - how many of them have you accomplished so far? I could do with a list, but I would take one look at it and pass out from the pressure  Roll Eyes Tongue Grin
