At last my baby [ Brother 4000D embroidery / sewing machine] is back from it's enforced stay at the BSK hospital.
When she stopped working before Christmas I was in the middle of a large stitched project. I kept the project in the frame hoping I could continue where I had come to a crashing stop!
YIPPEE I've managed it!
65979 stitches in the design, so I lot of thread and time would have been wasted if I could not sort it out.
