Part of the 'Mapping the River Trail' project - first of a series of works inspired by my walks along the Sammamish River Trail. Still alot of stitching to do but the background has been painted and basic applique shapes applied. I'm using my old Bernina, Betsy, for the free machining - she's old but fast! Plus I find all the new machines have too many safe guards in place such as stitch regulators which I don't like. I want the irregularity, the skipped stitch, the odd 'mistake' - I don't want the maker's hand 'regulated' in any way thanks!
