Free Motion Stone Wall
Just a little bit of free motion quilting done today...
... a stone wall against the slightly darker coloured neutral to start building up the foreground.
I'm not convinced that the top of the wall is right, it is a bit too regular, but once I have put in a bit of grass and a few weeds growing out from between the stones it should look a bit better.
At the moment I am having to break Leah Day's basic rule of practising every day. I spent a rather interesting half hour with the physiotherapist this afternoon. He asked me to rate the pain he was inflicting on a scale of 1 to 10. We got to 9 and a half, and the bad news is that I have frozen shoulder. I am doing my best not to be a grumpy old crock about it, but for a while the free motion quilting will have to be a tiny bit at a time.
Oh well, never mind. Any excuse for bit of serious dressmaking.
