Time elapsed: 3 hours plus 1 hour last night equals a total of 4 hours.
Aaaaargh! I set the stitch width and all such things to what was listed as allowed and broke not one but two needles in ten minutes. Now I have to rip part of the very tight seam and redo it.
But I am making decent progress, having cut and ironed the circles and pinned them to where I want them to be.
Now my husband and I are in disagreement as to where to add the "L". He wants a more traditional balanced look, I want something a bit more quirky and modern.
