Q&A with Eva testar

artbythebay asked:
Looks so cute! add a basket to the bottom-- it could be an Easter Basket.
Eva testar answered:
Thank you artbythebay, good idea. Working with the bird now.
Scheri Manson asked:
SAMPLE! Oh my if this is a sample you have done on a treadle machine you are very talented. Please keep posting as you add more embellishments :)
Eva testar answered:
Thank you Scheri! I think that the treadle is good for my body, to move the legs up and down make less tension in the body. So the motion give you a micro exercise and loosen up that concentrated tension you fell into when doing this free motion. On a electric machine you use only one foot on the pedal/foot control and after a while the body get pain.
Terry White asked:
Eva, Your work is stunning! I love your design using the motifs. I've been thinking about trying this work with a treadle machine. You have shown it to be a beautiful tool.
Eva testar answered:
Thank you Terry, and thank you for your great class. I would like to take some more photos an show you what I made of it. Perhaps I have some time for that in the weekend.
