darn it

Exciting news (for me)! I finally took the plunge and bought a fancy-pants darning foot for my new sewing machine. The whole reason I bought my newest machine was because I wanted to take up free motion embroidery, but I couldn't get started until I had this foot.

It will arrive in the next few weeks and then the fun will begin. The form of embroidery is so exciting to me, I hope I have some success with it. I'll be sure to share some of my pieces with you all.

For now I thought I'd share some of my favourite free-motion embroidery inspirations:

Girl Popcorn demo on Threadbanger

Pebble Quilt Demo
