What are you most proud of? The compliments I received from other campers! What Cindy says is true! Folks see the feathers and ignore all the "creative' aspects! I used about 5-7 different threads including a wonderful glittery thread for the stippling and straight lines. My Juki handled them all gracefully! I still have many hours to go before I can come close to really good feathers but I do see progress. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep on keeping on! I've had to overcome my perfectionist tendencies and just play. The feathers sure aren't perfect but the hum purr is there and when I look at some feathers here and there they are more than satisfactory. Not that happy with the circles but I do see progress. Lots of improvement needed there but looking at the whole -- I'm pleased! Now on to Procrastination III!
