Beautiful BJ.  Bet your friend will be pleased with it.

BJ, they're both great. Your friend will love her house scene.

This is the one I hoped to post, but needed to get it onto the computer before I could post. Just finished this for my friend.

Lovely Bj and Ally. Seeing your TPs I am itching to start one again. Hmmm.

Merry Christmas to you both and everyone else.

Okay Ally - I take the challenge.... here's a recent TP.  I challenge BB to post a thread painting and challenge another to do so as well.:)

Cool idea Ally. Your thread painting is fabulous. I never tire of seeing it.

Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year to everyone.

Seeing there hasn't been much action on here I am posting my last thread painting for 2017 and hope there will be many more in 2018. And I am going to nominate BJ to share a new or an old thread painting with us and in turn nominate someone. At lest if this gets off the ground there will be some action here. And it will be fun to see some old and new TP to spur us on to create.

Sherri - some people don't use a foot at all, but you need to be very mindful of the needle!  Some also put their fabric in a hoop to keep it taut, and you move the hoop, which if you don't have a foot on the machine, helps keep your fingers away from the needle.

I have A Janome and i can adjust the speed too. But i think what is happening is the free motion foot becomes loose and gets in the way of the needle. So I am trying to remember to re tighten the screw every so often

Sherri, what kind of machine are you using?  I have Berninas and some have a half-speed setting that's perfect for my hand motion and I don't worry about having a heavy foot on the gas peddle! ;D
