A while back I bought a darning foot on ebay so I could try out a bit of free-motion sewing, well, turns out the ebay foot was dodgy so I bought a proper Janome one. So glad I did. This could possibly be my favourite item I've made ever (did that even make sense??):
It's something I've wanted to make for ages, using Aneela Hoey's briliant tutorial here. It was easier than I thought, and so much fun doing all that free motion stitching and embroidery, I think I'm breaking out of my "must be perfect" shell. The imperfections are what makes it so perfect.
Here's a close-up of my swinging girl:
Not sure what to do with it though, I don't think it's actually a quilt in the making, I might stick it in a white Ikea frame and find a spot on the wall somewhere.
