Sharne said I would enjoy the challenge………….

Well I started manipulating the piece of work to try and make a vessel type shape, challenge in itself – thanks Di :-),

RRC 001

then the stitching started to tear the fabric as I moved it, metallic thread and paper fabric I have now learnt don't work well together, Rock/Paper/Scissors springs to mind,

RRC 005

so I had the re-stitch the joins with a wide zig zag in a thick cotton, broke two needles before I realised that I had not put the pressure foot setting back to normal!

RRC 007

Then it was time to try and make an interesting vessel shape ready for Deb to embellish……………

   RRC 012 

Good luck Deb :-)

I'm looking forward to seeing all these vessels when they are done. All the images of this project on yours, Sharne's and Diane's blogs are very interesting! Hope they will be posted on your blog.
