Some progress on my designed sampler today, this time using a white gutterman cotton. I used a cream on the bobbin, at furst, but changed it to white halfway through as the cream showed through in center of the circular wreath.
I had to sort the tension out a bit too.
Four small lady-bugs are included :)
Its been a learning curve...and learnt lots on what NOT to do!
The main drawn sections of the design are quilted, and I am off to bed and will work out the freehand filler designs tomorrow when I have time.
