I grew up with farm fresh milk from a family friend's Jersey farm, and got to love these gentle giants, while visiting them on 'milk collection Saturdays'. Have you seen a Jersey Cow? Think Norman in City Slickers, cute doesn't even start. Even the adults are beautiful, big, expressive eyes, long eyelashes, beautiful colouring, sweet natures… oh if I had a farm!
So, all this to tell you about my latest work…
My hubby, knowing my love of Wooly Coos, brought back a postcard of one from 'our' Scottish trip I couldn't go on, and it has become the inspiration for a new FW ink & thread piece…
Here he is ink only, pre thread painting:
I'm busy with the thread painting part, will add photos once done.
I have started using my Brother Innovis 4000 for FME, and now I cannot figure out why I didn't do so years ago! It is perfectly suited. I simply changed over to my usual modified free motion foot. With the Brother Innovis 4000 you can save exact stitch settings, so I now have some set up for FME EXACTLY as I want them, tension, width, everything. As everything is electronic on this machine, I can even store the foot height I desire! And to think, I have been using it solely for machine embroidery! What a waste!!!!!!

Works a treat.
