RUN FOR THE BORDER

I managed to get the inner foundation border completed. Now it's on to the outer portion. I am loving this piece so much that I decided to forego my rotation drawing this week to stay with this for a while. (I told you the rules were flexible!)
Sparkle Rays and I are learning to be friends. We're not as close as I am to my beloved Flair, but I think I can add this to my list of metallics that I will definitely try again. This laying, though, can be a real pain in the neck when you don't work with a proper stand and/or sit in good stitching posture. I do have a wonderful stand, but I was just too damn lazy to go up to the studio to get it last night. Besides...why make it easy when you can complain about it the next day, right?
Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Your piece looks great. Sparkle Rays is one of my favorite fibers to work with, I've never been a fond of Flair though ;)

  5. Hi Coni,

    You are making great progress.

    Now comes the fun part. Filling in those sections.

    Have you every tried clamping your stretcher bars to a table? Works great for me as I usually stitch at my dining room table. Of course, complaining always works!

    Oh, Oh, Oh, Who designed the 4th of July and the Halloween birds in your slide show? Looks like you did the whole set of birds.

    And who stitched the Santa Moon? Is that Heartstrings Pat Thode? Are you a Pat fan also? I love her designs!

  6. Hi Again,

    I mean to say, who DESIGNED the Santa Moon.

    Okay, time for bed! Sigh...
