Anything But Paper



Happy to be be participating again without too much strain on my right hand - all done by machine!
"Anything But Paper" allowed me to free stitch on my sewing machine.  This technique is just like drawing without taking your pencil off the paper, but only with your sewing machine and fabric , so not perfect or precise, but lots of fun. (Free stitching on the machine is done with the feed dogs dropped and with a darning foot attached - sorry to the non-sewers for the technical terms) .  I am still doing  more faces like this on a shirt for another  February challenge ' 29 Faces' and this is my practice piece turned into a tag.
Thanks too for your kind wishes - the laser acupuncture seems to be working well!
