Turns out that after my marathon effort on Monday night that I neglected to remove the paper pattern prior to stitching on one of the feet. The stitching is of course repeated circular stites and HELL!! to remove! So guess what I spent last night doing... Well I started... I removed the some of the stitching and then gave up and moved onto the next one (this time removing the pattern.
The one I started last night will be a reverse applique one, and the one that I stuffed up previously may also turn out to be cut back as well - we'll see how it goes.
