Here is the beginning of a small art quilt I am making with my needle-felting machine. It looks kind of abstract right now, but my goal is to make it an autumn creek scene. So far it has no stitching, just layers of cotton and sheer fabrics on a piece of cotton batting.
I haven't worked much on the Zentangle hand, but have added some tiny seed beads to the other side of the background field. It is hard to see much progress with these small beads.
Remember the white blazing stars quilt that took so long to quilt? When last seen here, I was going to "quickly unsew" an area on the back where the tension was off.
I have spent at least three nights picking out the quilting from the ever-explanding area where the stitching on the back was too loose. You would think that with loose tension the picking would be easy, but not when you have micro-stippled.
I was having a lovely time quilting leaves, vines and flowers with NO PROBLEMS until my on-off switch broke. Can't turn it on. Have ordered new switches which I hope arrive soon. I was about three-fourths done when the machine went Kaput.
