I always like the messiness of the underside of work. Here's a peek at the hidden mess!
|tidying up the edges to use the hoop as a frame|
It's the first times in years that I've used a hoop to sew in. I'd grown a bit lazy and have been using stitch & tear to stabilise the fabric but I'd forgotton how much easier it is to sew in a hoop. Although you are restricted by the size of the hoop and the length of the sewing machine arm, it was well worth the effort. My brain is overloaded with ideas so I'm not sure where the next sewing trip will take me.
All done in the peace of my mess/studio room on yet another misty rainy Cornish summer day with fabulous tunes by PJ Harvey and Connan Mockasin playing in the background...bliss!
