FMQ Challenge

I am posting this just so a friend can see  I am not linking up to the challenge yet; hoping to get a better sample before then.  But here is one sample of this month's challenge...

Ok...I have finished my 2nd sample; I think I like the 1st one better I may never get this, but will keep trying. Sew Cal Gal and Cindy Needham have been wonderful; host and instructor. I want to thank both of them for doing this months challenge; been a real one for me. But I want to somehow get comfortable with this.  In my first sample I used a better colour thread so you can at least see it. But I felt no control til the end. This latest sample I felt much more control; though it doesn't look like  But I didn't use dark enough thread for you to really see things well.  Maybe for the best,eh...stop it!!

I have learned though; that I make one ugly feather!!!!! hahaha. ok pic # 2

You can't see it...shoot; but the pebbling is better this time...and my echoing is better. I guess that's a plus...but what happened to my feathers. I did better a few months

This post is linked up to FMQ Challenge  Thanks for listening.
