Regina really wanted to stitch out this bowl. But she had troubles right at the beginning. The bowl Center was missing a bunch of stitches. This set was originally done in 2005. All the bowls sold very well back then so I was amazed there was a problem with one of the designs. I don’t think I was a big help at first, but we eventually fingered things out. I reconverted the design to PES and it has worked fine since.
Attached is a pic of how I do flat FSL. This is the plastic that we use for needlepoint. I cut it to the size that I may need, put the embroidery in it and clip it down. I can rinse and hang it to dry without ever touching the lace till it is dry. Find out that nothing ever stretches this way.
