Moving to the Big League

Block7

Life is hectic here (and on dialup, which doesn't help!), so this is just a quickie.

I have moved my 11.5 inch block on to a tapestry frame, to try that out. The six inch job is just not working for me on a block this big. Time will tell if it works.

I am still filling in my acorns - this block is BIG, so I am using BIG bits in it - with a bit of "I Spy" to come in later. (See, Sharon, I read my notes).

And there is a failure of a machine in the bottom pink but - need to solidify it, and make it lighter.

Back in a few days .....

Hi, Linda! I have been toying with the idea of working on a tapestry frame, also. Or maybe a slate frame, I can't decide. It is rather frustrating to me to use the embroidery hoop on the larger blocks... and I really don't like the marks it makes all over the place.

I've seen tapestry frames mounted on a stand that fits on either side of you while you are sitting in a chair so I may try one of those... if I can find one wide enough!!! ;0)

I recently got a stitching station and had hoped to be able to work CQ on the frame along with the usual needlework. Let us know how it's working for you. Mine isn't set up yet. It does have adaptors for Q-Snaps.
