Free machine embroidery...the designing stage!

I've been on the Free Machine Embroidery course at the Bristol Folk House brushing up on techniques and using new skills. We now have 3 weeks to plan and complete an individual project so I thought I'd get the planning done at home so I can concentrate on techniques and working out a way to complete my design - I've gone for a Mad Hatter's cake. Looks OK on paper, but will it transfer onto fabric? We'll see. I'll post pics of my work in progress...as it progresses.
Session 1...the basic shape comes
to life

Spent a bit more time on my project -  a grand way to spend a Friday evening.
