A little more practice -

Filled up this space -

And a couple of rows on this side - before I ran out of bobbin thread and called it quits for the day - ;))

It looks OK from the back - but not that wonderful -

So it still needs work -

A LOT of work - ;))

I adjusted the height of the foot (the elastic hair band loops) -

I tried speeding up the machine - and slowing down my hands -

But my stitches got really tiny -

So I don't think that's it -

For some reason my rhythm is off -

And I'm not hearing the "hum" of the machine like I used to -

That sound the machine makes when I'm "in the zone" -

So I still have to play with it -

To figure out what's different from the last time I did some FMQ -

And what I need to change to fix it - ;))

Tomorrow I'll start over -

Wind some more bobbins -

Give it another good cleaning -

Re-thread it -

Re-check my settings -

The whole nine yards -

And then try it again -

It's not like I haven't done it before -

And that I don't know how - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Your FMQ is improving. Keep at it, it will come.

Relax. That might be what's missing! (Remember yesterday when I said my swirls got square cause I was hurrying and worrying?!) And you'll find the zone. You had it before, you'll get it again!

I wonder if you are trying too hard. If you can put on some music or a tv show that will distract the logical side of your brain, it will probably be better.

keep working at it, this looks better than the previous. And I know you can do it. (re-watching some classes may help also.)
