Ruff hem is 3/14ths complete
Well, the ridiculous ruff is coming along slow and steady, but faster than expected. I've now gotten a rhythm down and seem to be able to hem about 25~27 inches per hour. That sounds slow, but have you ever tried doing a 1/16th in hem with stitches that small? Well, I was able to produce another 88 inches of hem last night which brings me up to 159 inches of hem done. Ultimately I will be joining 14 sections together. They will be combined by butting the selvedge edges together. I have completed 3 of the 14 sections. I've leaving the butting together for last so that I don't have to sit and work on a hem while dealing with 60+ foot of material on my lap.
