What are you most proud of? I am not happy with the background and am open to suggestions on how to improve it.

I love it! Yes - if you don't mind me saying so - a darker, perhaps denser, background would make the figure stand out more (but I don't really know what I'm talking about as I've only just signed up for the Thread Art Class and haven't started yet). However, if I can produce something one quarter as good as this, I shall be more than happy! Well done!

Thank you. If I can do it so can you. It is not a matter of knowing what you are doing, just trust your first instinct when you look at something. I did do a lot of more stitching on the background yesterday. The first time I was going by the width of my free motion foot but now I know that doesn't work.

I love this. I hope you post another picture when you're satisfied with it.

I will take a picture of it this morning. I am going to start one of another granddaughter this morning. Thanks again. Lola for teaching us such a fun, easy technique.
