 I just finished washing and ironing the remaining towels that were on the Megado. I'm happy to say that there are only 7 more napkins to hand hem, sitting next to my chair to work on. Between the towels and the REP Runners that I hemmed all day yesterday, I think I'm shot for awhile, on the hemming part of this craft!
