Oh this is working out marvelously so far (knock on wood). My Janome is giving me a serious headache. I don't like the way the tech set the tensions, so I fiddled with them myself. I can't believe I have to take it back again. It's like cooking with a broken stir-spoon. But here's what I have so far. First, the painted sky - watered down acrylics on cotton.
I air dried it and then pressed it with a hot steamy iron.
So far so good. Then I placed it on the buckrum canvas and stitched it horizontally through the blues, with blue thread.
It still lacked some "pretty", so I covered the whole sky with sheer ribbon. NICE! So that was 505'd in place and then stitched around the edges.
Looks good hey?
Now for the horizon! Can't wait. I just need to remember to practice before every step on a scrap piece to make sure this machine is set right. Yikes. I'll take the 7700 in later when this one is done. I can't handle the withdrawal. ; ) Anyone have a good back up machine for me to buy?
happy & relieved to be making a landscape again!!
