I have finished the motif embroidery and started the blanket stitch. As soon as the blanket stitch around the yoke is done, I will construct the top. The bottom of the yoke isn’t really all crooked as it appears in the photo, it is just scrunched up a little by the side of the sewing machine. I am debating whether or not to put the blanket stitch around the sleeve hem, so I will ask M if she wants embroidery there or not. So far, so good.
I am way behind in the Christmas gift buying and other seasonal chores, but the spouse says we will make a short but intense shopping effort tomorrow and start and finish in a few hours. I hope so.
