I have finished my massive embroidery at last! Had many finger injuries along the way, got so sick of it and almost threw the whole thing away and almost did the same to my machine as it was playing up continually. I think that this was stretching the capability of my cheap machine to it's absolute limits. Blame the tools!
I have decided to call it 'British Blokes with Birds' and have entered it into a fiber exhibition in Annapolis, now shall wait to see if selected.
Aghhh so much sewing! Thankfully I am back to making wooden things for the next few days.
