Last Friday I managed to put a machine needle through my finger while FMQing. Not my finest hour!
I decided to take a rest from my machine until my finger recovers...but in the meantime, I have started a hand sewing project - La Passacaglia. I am using materials from my stash. I have a fair old stash of batiks which I am hoping will work for this project. I have found a lovely, Facebook group for support. I'm not sure I could have made a start with this without all the helpful information available there.
I have managed to make the first rosette (90 pieces). It has gone together well and I am going to enjoy the journey. I am using Inklingo and hand piecing using running stitch. I like the idea of having a project that will be portable and that I can pick up or put down as I wish. I am planning to use a limited palette of colours with occasional shots of brighter colour.
