Besides, I'm busy trying to teach myself free motion quilting. Feathers to be exact. Why... just always fascinated with the feathers. So, I recently saw instructions Ivory Spring blog on regarding feathers and I was intrigued. I especially liked the directions on how to sew out the feathers. So, over the last 3 days, I have been practicing on my domestic sewing machine. At first it was frustrating but over time, I'm feeling more comfortable. In the meantime, I'm going to try and make a feather each day. My next biggest hurdle is trying to wrap a feather and butt one feather up against another.
