Here is my ATC featuring the feather stitch for the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge for week 7.

I started with a piece each of green and blue felt and blended them together with my Janome Xpression. I then added bits and pieces of organza, strips of tulle, wool fibers and eyelash yarn which I covered with another piece of tulle and felted these together. I then added the feather stitching and the little fish beads.
Although it is hard to see, I really like the way the background blended together. This is my first true embellished piece using the Xpression. I am going to have to start playing around with it some more.
