I put black thread in the needle so I could see what I was doing a bit better. The fish is a pattern from a quilting magazine that I copied out ages ago. I need to make a fishy or watery quilt to use it. I tried a bit of meandering but I think I need the stitch regulator to do that well. There is no way to regulate the speed with the machine plugged into the frame unless you have it. That makes it pretty well impossible to make even stitches. I have been concentrating on getting nice even curves and a sharp point where I want points. When using the laser pen it's also hard to know if the pattern is too wide to fit under the harp of the machine. I will have to follow the pattern with the machine not running the first time. I had the problem with the fish. That's why the bottom fin is so flat.
