My plan today at Morley was to free-motion stitch some of the tree outlines on to the dyed cloth from last week. It is sue time since I sewed using a machine other than my own, and it was not a resounding success. After trying 3 different machine, breaking 3 needles, continuous thread breaks, I did manage to get in tune with a machine.
Stitching on organza- ignore the quality of the stitching please
My brain can't stitch these shapes as well as it can draw them. This tree looks too much like seaweed, or some odd anatomical protuberance.
This one looks like a set of tube worms.

This could be going somewhere now, but my tutor recommended that the trees need roots to ground them in the design more effectively, so lots of stitching practise needed at home.
