I can't believe that it's been so long since I posted here! Things have been pretty busy for the month of November and I'm glad that it's over. And I'm even more glad that it's almost time to open the new shop.
In the crafty news, I finished my shawl! I need to soak it in hot water and really get it stretched out (the top should be much longer), but the final stitch was bound off late last night. When I get it properly blocked and all that good stuff I'll get a few more pictures.
In other news, I've finished the embroidery portion of a gift I'm making. I haven't decided if this will be a wall-hanging or a pillow, but I'm leaning toward a pillow.
I've learned so much about this machine! Keeping track of how many stitches are in each block is essential to avoid running out of bobbin thread. A block is a portion of the pattern that will all be stitched in one shot. For example, the dress was one block while the butterflies were another block.
And now, it's time for a short break before planning the next OWL.
I do hope that you are all having a great Monday!
