Okay, so I didn't get what I was hoping to do, done.
But... I DID manage to sew 2 rows together! Horray!! :)
And a closer view..
There are a few strips just out slightly though considering this is probably the biggest thing I have sewn I'm not that phased about it. I am getting pretty worried about having to sew the backing and batting together though and wondering how on earth my little Elna will handle such a big task!
