I received some more beautiful opalescent fabric from Ebay this week, and another Nora Corbett pixie.
Here is an update on ABChristmas.
The designer had the letters N, O, E, and L next to each other so
they spell out Noel and the O is an ornament. The pattern calls for it
to be stitched in the same green as the other letters, and backstitched
in the green, and there are french knots in it also. I had the idea of
using a white variegated Threadworx thread to stitch the ornament and
then backstitch in one of these RG Petite Braids, and use one of these
beads in place of the French knots, just to jazz up the piece a bit.
Instead of using a Q-snap I attached the fabric to stretcher bars. I am going to do this for all projects from now on, so I can have the whole project in view and not have to be moving a Q-snap around.
I am on the lookout for a good sit-on or lap stand to put the stretcher bars in. I have looked at this one, this one, and this one. If anyone has used any of these, I would love feedback.
Until next time...
