It has been a while since you have seen this one, so here is the latest update:
I am almost done the bottom row. One more shell, and I start moving up again. I did a quick inventory check last night and for every single project I am working on, I need to pick up at least one skein of floss. I have run out on ever single project! Funny how that happens. For this one, it is DMC 712. Seems a shopping trip is in order. Heee.
The border is really making this project worth it. And it is astounding how much the backstitching adds to this piece. With every shell I finish, I get more excited for the next one.
On to the Stitching Bloggers Question:
How do you `non-hoopists’ who use a rotation system handle it (as it seems to be lot easier if you are in good terms with hoop)? Do you have several scroll frames? Do you use Q-snaps or maybe something completely different? Or do you just have one or two big projects and others are small enough to be kept in hand while stitching?
I use Q-snaps and I never leave my fabric in them, since I work on a rotation and I only have one set of snaps. I move them around all the time anyway, depending on where I am stitching that day, so I find the snaps easiest to use. For my smaller projects, I simply stitch in hand.
Thanks to Outi for that question – it was a good one!
