I have tired of working on the perforated paper. Big shocker there, huh? LOL.
I kept working on March Cottage the greens did not look so good on the
Antique Brown paper. Plus I am very picky with my stitching and you
cannot carry threads at all on perforated paper. Everything shows
So, I restarted March Cottage for the third time last night on 32 count Lambswool Jobelan. I had started stitching it the first time on 32 count Sage Jobelan, and then the second time on the perforated paper.
I actually stretched and pinned my fabric onto stretcher bars, much like you would do to frame it. And much lighter than a Q-snap. I saw it done on someone's blog and said, hey, I have to try that, as I abhor rolling up fabric on a Q-snap and them having to move it and move it again to get to the next part of the pattern. I like to have full access to the entire piece and using the mini stretcher bars, which are very light, allows me to do this.
The Shepherd's Bush Eve's Garden kit has caught my eye, but it's $70!!! At first I did not care so much for it, but I saw a WIP on someone's blog, and it's just gorgeous. Darn blogs! LOL.
I have started reading House at Riverton by Kate Morton. Love it so far! It has been a while since I have found a good book to read.
I also recently purchased another snap tray and these great red scissors.
