Just a quicky update to show the progress that has been made on Grand Old Flag...
Stitching the letters goes rather quick. Now....the roof of the house is taking a bit of eyes and patience! ;-) Just for effect, the roof has been stitched using a darker color thread for the "right leaning" part of the stitch. Then the "left leaning" part of the stitch is a different, lighter color thread. I used this opportunity to see how I like the "sewing method" of cross stitching....and I just can't get the hang of it. So, it's poking and stabbing method for this gal! lol!
I admire all of the pretty project bags that stitchers show on flosstube...but, I find that having these plastic projects boxes (scrap book section of Michael's) is a bit more practical for me. This way I can see what's in the box...and I can keep my ort jar, glasses and needleminder (along with the pattern, thread and fabric) with the project in progress. My hoop or q-snap frames also fit in the project box (when working on smaller designs).
And....I had some folks email me for the link to my eBay auctions... I apologize for not including the link here sooner... should you be interested in checking them out, click HERE. They end this Thursday (the 16th) in the evening.
Be safe, stay well and stitch on! :-)
