A few days ago I put the studying on the back burner and spent some time familiarising myself with my Janome Horizon. So many stitches and you don't always get a clear idea of how they stitch out from the diagrams. I cut up some calico into squares and threaded up with all sorts of odds and ends of thread which have been hanging around for longer than I care to remember - some of them might even be older than me...........well that's a bit of a long shot, but there'll definitely be some over 20 years. Double thickness calico and off I went. There's quite a lot more than I stitched out but time ran out and I've picked out lots of favourites I'd like to integrate into future projects. The stitch quality is amazing and with some care and attention to proper stabilising of fabric before stitching these are going to look fantasic and enhance whatever they are used on.
