It is a lot faster than the hand-stitching that I usually do, but my fingers still feel like bloody stubs. At least that feeling won't continue for the next month. Here are some close ups of the results.
I was able to get the inside all finished last night while watching LOST. Charlie seemed happy that I was doing something that didn't involve making a racket with the sewing machine (Although the machine has been fine tuned/ fixed and should not make such god awful noises anymore. Thanks Mum!)
Now I just have to figure out how to tie or otherwise finish off the border, but that can wait for a time when the weather isn't so nice and I don't have friends to go visit (and Powerball tickets to buy)!
Enjoy the sunshine!
