8/22/2013 - Took me an hour or so to pin it out for blocking yesterday. I <3 my blocking wires, they made the scallops and the top edge SO easy. Ran a wire down the edge of each section to help with straight-line stretching and spacing, and one through each scallop to get a smooth curve. It opened up beautifully, though, and is all drape-y. It needs a backing for the pattern to show up, and the beads are just the right amount of subtle.
