Ruff - 11 out of 14 sections and couting...

Well, this past weekend was a somewhat productive holiday weekend. After spending some good quality time with the kids each day I was able to sit and watch movies while hand sewing for about 4 hours a night. Nothing dramatic, but I now have 11 of the 14 sections hemmed. I hope to start connecting the sections by the end of this week and cartridge pleating by within 2 weeks! I've only done a few small samples of the joinery as proof of concept, but butting selvage edges up is rather tough. To get a nice clean, flat lightweight seem on the modern linen I'm using is harder than I thought. The period images obviously have cleaner, tighter selvedge edges than the linen I have.
