I've had this image in my head for a while. My sewing machine that I use for applique has been giving me grief, so I was reluctant to even attempt it for fear that it would be 'eaten' by my fickle piece of modern plastic machinery. Well it made it all the way to the stippling top stitch before it went on a rampage. Thankfully my wonderful old blue metal clunker machine came to the rescue! God bless the sewing machine craftsmanship of the 1950's!
