I am just plowing through this growth chart project! I've wanted to do it for awhile and usually it takes just as many months of thinking about it as it does to actually sew it. But I finished the embroidery in a couple days and sewed the buttons on and put on a the back panel and top stitched it all in ONE night. I think my husband may have been a little annoyed while he tried to watch t.v. I believe the words "are all sewing machines that loud" came out of his mouth towards the end. I explained a newer sewing machine would help. I'll show him the price tag next time.
