Today I finally practiced something I had wanted to do for ages. I did some writing with my sewing machine. I had a first go without a hoop, and it was far too difficult to do all the changes of direction that writing needs. So I hooped up my fabric and got going.
Here is my first attempt (“follow your own path”)
Then I did a few more words, followed by the beginning of Eldorado, by Edgar Allan Poe:
I’m pleased. I found it easier once I had a baseline to work to, and I need to remember to run along this baseline between words, to leave a space. When writing ‘t’s, I need to remember to do the cross part way down, and my ‘i’s are undotted. More practice needed, but I’m on the way.
