After reading a post by Sharon I decided to buy her book "Marvellous Motifs" and it arrived on Saturday. I discovered that the patterns were quite challenging, but that is good. My first effort was a rose, which was also a way of emptying shuttles. I then tried the first motif...but misread the pattern.
I will be trying again once I have emptied the shuttles. Watch this space!
I am planning to use it to edge a little sachet like Tatskool did in this post...well I have to make a sachet, yet, so don't hold your breath!
