The piece that I worked on the machine ended up not being the the runner I had intended, but a piece of strawberry fabric destined to be cut up for some pot holders. The choice was ultimately dictated by a lack of free bobbins on which I could load the grey thread, so I quickly fired off an order for a dozen more bobbins and stitched up some yummy berries in the meantime.
|Stitching on the last square!|
And in slow stitching, I successfully finished my first crochet blanket! In part because of how long it took, I feel a huge sense of accomplishment just for making it to the end! I just attached the last square, tied off the remaining threads, and gave it a good cuddle test. It passes! I think I'll just hang out under here until dinner!
Linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday.
