I couldn't wait
for the August framing sale at my LNS. Plus, I already purchased the frame for the Prairie Schooler piece back when I ordered the kit and wanted to get it hung while it was still spring.
I also took Poinsettia House to be framed. It seemed such a shame to leave it in limbo since I was going to the frame shop anyhow. Now it can hang on the wall in my sewing room until the season is right.
I just saw the new Bent Creek pattern..... Stitching Row. I might need that one. I didn't order any patterns from the Online Needlework Show. I did, however, order a lap frame. I'm hoping it works out. I much prefer holding the fabric in my hand but that just isn't working anymore. Aside from repetitive motion problems, I have arthritis in one of my knuckles. Sometimes a piece works OK in Q-Snaps and I have a scroll frame that attaches to a floor stand but it doesn't reach over the arm of my armchair. It does hold my pattern nicely so I use that part. I'm crossing my fingers this new frame is a comfortable fit.
We're in Florida for spring break but I didn't bring the cord that lets me download pictures to my computer. So now I have to wait until we're home to show you anything worth seeing. Betcha everyone is just holding their breath......
