I sure feel better!!

When you have had a really frustrating (angry making) week at work (temporary job that is- I won't bore you with details!) what better way of releasing that frustration - machining like crazy!!! This little piece (quiltlet) has really helped me today. It measures A4 in size and is a piece of very old home dyed cotton (with a felt wadding and calico back). I machined my rough shapes (same as the black velvet piece in a previous post - still not finished). I then set too filling in the spaces with my favourite zentangle fillings - sorry the colour looks different in the evening light. I used black cotton and really enjoyed machining over and over again especially the area on the left. It's lovely close up as the black shapes really stand out. Here is a close up so you can see it is really machine stitched and not drawn with a pen - oh and for more proof here is a small bit of the back. I will edge it now, somehow????
