What are you most proud of? this was a great learning experience for me. It got me working in pastel colorways. Additionally the search for additional stitches led me to pull out my Viking 1+ machine. Although I've had it for over 7 years I've never really explored the capabilities. This reintroduced me to this great machine.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to explore, take chances and make mistakes! The wonderful instructor, Carol Ann Waugh, has a mantra that there are no mistakes. Or if they are, they can be corrected. There are a lot of "mistakes" in this piece. The placement of the birds isn't perfect. (Who will notice, really? I slashed through two of the fabrics - and learned I could carefully apply fabric adhesive to cover the problem.Keep exploring and keep asking "What If?" Then do it!
