Well my stitching session didn't go quite so smoothly - my fault tho. I had outlined the centre area with my walking foot before lunch then switched to free motion to do the foliage and stars. I couldn't understand why it seemed such hard work and thought I was just having a bad day. Suddenly I realised ... I hadn't dropped the feed dogs...Duh!!
Anyway here's a close up of the free motion pattern on the cream background:
It's a variation of Patsy Thompson's 'Loop de loop' with some stars. I do like this pattern as it's quick to cover a large area and much easier then stippling. I have a couple of her DVDs which are exellent. She has some free patterns to download if you fancy having a go. Click here to see them.
I have done some more stitching on the navy background since I took the photo so it's nearly finished. Not bad for a lazy Sunday!
