New piece to work show

Here is the little bit I have stitched on Olenka's Russian design which she was so generous to share. I have it on my new Grip-n-stitch frame and so far I am liking it. I wasn't sure if I would. I'll see when I do a larger piece. When I have the frame apart, I will take pictures of it. Once the fabric is stretched over it, you can't easily pop it off like a hoop or Q snaps. It's on for the duration!

Later I will post my daughter's gift that I made her. She should receive it today. Yeah!!

Thank goodness for cyberfriends. I have to thank Michelle B. for helping me to figure out a blog problem. I wanted to have my blog list with names instead of blog sites. She suggested something and Voile! I got it to work. Thanks Michelle!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you are all having fun stitching.
Hugs and Stitches.
Jean

I have a Q snaps and never used it ... I love to just hold my fabric and stitch. I guess it's not as perfect as with a frame.

You're off to a great start! Very pretty. :)

Great start ! How do they compare with the Q Snap ?

I am still experimenting with various stitching aids (or not). My most current project is on Q Snaps while another one I'm doing in hand. I like the tautness of the Q Snaps but sometimes it's hard to maneuver and get to the areas I need to. I'll be interested to hear more as you use your new frame. I'm glad I could help with the blog!

I hope you like your new frame! I have always stitched in hand, I probably wouldn't know what to do with a framed piece!

***giggle*** Thank goodness, I'm still in your blog list!
