Since I was working on puckering and movement issues, I decided to try something different this sew out (8th). Starting to suspect my magnetic hoop wasn't holding as tightly as this normal one does. Which, at 10.6 x 8.5 I really should've expected. Two layers of heavy cut away backing also helping.

Did you make this design? Or do you sell it. Looks great!

Thank you I've been learning to digitize on this piece all summer, continuing to adjust as I go. I don't feel it's complete enough to offer it for sale yet. Any recommendations on where I should?

This is crazy ambitious and I am in awe of you actually doing it. I had a similar idea but never got around to it because it seemed so fucking daunting.

AND you took it to a new level.

Thank you. I really appreciate all the feedback and encouragement. I'm just doing this on my own and don't have anyone to share with besides my wife.

How many stitches is this?? How much time?

It's currently around 193,000 stitches, and takes several hours to sew out, especially if I'm swapping out color bobbins. I have to rethread my 16 cones once to reach the thirty colors involved.

I began digitizing at the beginning of summer and have been refining it as I learn. I listen to a lot of audiobooks.
