There's a few missing parts in this piece, but until I receive the variegated thread not included with my kit, I'll just continue on my merry way.
Snow Patch - 24 July 2009
I really get so much enjoyment from stitching SB patterns. They feel so familiar to me. I guess that's why I gravitate towards them so much when choosing what to do next.
Laura wanted to know if when I use my hoop to stitch, whether it flattens the stitches. To tell you the truth I don't look at my stitching in that much detail. I also iron my fabric before I take any pictures of my progress but try not to iron too much over my needlework. So I'm sure it does get flattened a little along the way. Things done by hand don't have that perfect 'machine made' look, so this situation doesn't bother me. I've just always stitched with a hoop and am used to working this way. It's an interesting question though. I wonder whether anyone's found another way to stitch apart from in hand or using a hoop? I know there's scroll frames and the like, but is there another method that is a little less unknown? Please feel free to comment on what way works for you.
Until next time... thanks for dropping by!
