So now I have redone the design a bit and made it smaller. I dread loading it on the machine and hearing thunk again. But I'm a positive thinking person and once I quit procrastinating and get my butt back up to The Loft and try again it is going to stitch out like a dream. Really it is.... and if it doesn't, Marmie will probably hear my scream in the UK and Ausie will hear me Down Under!
It worked! One dozen hats later, I'm back to finish the post. Jim wouldn't pose for me, so I enlisted my buddy bear to do it for me (I'm going to just have to get a squirrel stuffie for such things lol)
