This is the mtn outside our front door again. I know it doesn't look like much of a mountain, but in reality, it's the peak. The whole region we live in is actually up in the mountain range.

The right equipment
People, let me tell you, use the right equipment for the right job. The picture on the left was yesterday's and Thursday's practice with the old foot. No wonder I wasn't getting better! That darned old darning foot! Bad pun, sorry. The one on the right is with the new foot. Yes, I lost track of my seam lines a few times and I'm sewing with coarse thread, but LOOK at the difference! My "sidewalks" are mostly in control. My feathers are round. I even backtracked quite a bit when doing the gridlines. I'm thrilled, even though it looks sad, because it's such a marked improvement! Whereas before there wasn't. I felt as if the old foot wasn't close enough to the fabric and consequently, when the needle picked up, the fabric moved. Correct equipment means EVERYTHING!
