Stash Report for Week 9 - WB 03-01-15

This week I've been working mostly on Quilting my Passover Quilt.  The part for the walking foot is done!  However the part for the hopping foot (FMQ foot) is definitely not done.  Not that far off - and it COULD have been done - but it wasn't!  Honestly, my FMQ on this has been one of the funniest things, with angle this and angle that and wierdly shaped the other. I'm not done yet - and sure do hope I improve!  Although the biggest improvement may happen if and when I take a chill pill - if I can ever get one prescribed!  I have this funny thing - as I get tense, I start pressing down HARD on the fabric - which of course makes the fabric jerk and twitch instead of glide over the machine surface!  And no, I don't go too fast!  In fact, in a race between myself and a snail - the snail would win - hands down, every time!  Still and all, I am patting myself on the back for one thing - I am trying it - and I AM determined! (OK - that's TWO things!  I still can't count!) 

As for pictures - well, it isn't at that point yet - but hopefully I will get one up sometime this week!  the picture at the top was done with a walking foot - which still obviously needs a lot of that P word (Practice!)

You are at doing, so you are right to take credit for that. (What is it Yoda says, Try Not, Do?

great job for taking the plunge! the first time is the hardest and every time you do it it will be just a bit easier. :)

I'm right there with you. I get frustrated and quit and then after a while, I've calmed down and ready to try again. Oddly enough, I've found it a bit easier to increase the speed a bit rather than slow it all the way.

It will get easier the more practice you have, just don't give up.

You should give yourself a pat on the back. Don't be so hard on yourself. You are trying and it will get easier as you do more. What I see now looks good to me. Keep it up.
