Dear Chinaalia3, thank you for your comment. It is a free motion project. Now I know that anyone "can free motion" - I remember a lady who been my inspiration since the childhood did fantastic embroidered pictures on old feet-operated singer without any foot at all - just plain needle. I tried it too, however it is required a lot of practice and a good coordination. My next quest will be to buy a spring needle from Shmetz and try it instead of darning foot - I still don't like how foot sometimes blocks the view of the working area. Good luck with your projects!
