The Houston Project.


The Fisherman's Wife.

She's finished…

I didn't know if I could do it to my satisfaction, but I got a lump in my throat when I saw the scanned image.

I'm pretty darned happy.

Now I have to do the border but that's easy after this exercise.

I'm a bit sad to be giving her away really. Hope she goes to a good home.

The interesting thing is that I had minimum puckering of the background… and I've worked out why…

No, I didn't use a hoop…so I guess you need to come to a class to learn the secret.!!!!

    That is so beautiful! I would love to know how you keep it from shrinking/puckering with such dense quilting. Any exceptions to your requirement to attend your class to find out how you do it for foreign fans?

    She is absolutely amazing Pam, congratulations on seeing her through to the end!
    I love the textural quality your stitches give to the fabric of her robe when you enlarge the photo.
    Well done!

    Thanks for your comments everyone, I really appreciate them.
    Yes, I’m happy with it but now I feel that I can do different stitches to create a more fluid movement.
    Some people have managed to create larger stitches on the machine… but I am restricted to the movement I use with my hands… I need to experiment.
