Sentinelle #2

I have been sewing  and sewing and my machine is not co-operating with the double thread I am running through it - the tension on the back of the piece is not the best- but running a double thread gives a different effect then stitching  4 times- it's a bit looser and more dimensional- but the back isn't pretty that's for sure- though I do not make  quilts for the backs! I am still pondering what colour I will use to stitch her face with....


And am also undecided what badges she shall wear- probably something pretty vibrant as the background is quite dark and I will probably darken it some more with stitching- right now I am taking a break- my back is sore form all that sewing!

Wow, je gaat als een trein, en LOL, je doet het niet voor de achterkant. Heb je al overwogen om met dik draad in het spoelhuis en met de quilt op de kop te werken? Vast wel. Oeh, moeilijke keuzes, welke kleur garens, brons met tikje roze?
