Stitching Pomegranates, 3

Most evenings before dinner I sit at the machine and do free motion stitching on pomegranates for about an hour and a half. The machine's motor heats too fast to do more than that.
I keep adding more stitching because the colors of the threads please me so much.
The next sketch to go under the needle: Less stitch gives a different look that I like as well.

More visible fabric.

I find I like the possibility of viewing the work on the blog page as I go along. Gives me some perspective.

Believe me, Nifty, the pleasure's ALL mine! It's an added gift that someone else can enjoy this blog besides me. And I must say that I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would.

these progress pics are fabulous Nadia, love the liveliness & energy of your stitched lines, they feel so free!

Mo, your comment about the freedom of the stitched line has made me reflect. I never saw it that way, but intuitively I think that's why I have always liked to draw with the machine rather than a pencil or pen.
