Lover's progress

I have quite a bit done on my WIP. They are really coming along nicely, I am just loving every minute of this. Our internet was down all day yesterday and i worked on the bouquet she is holding. I can't believe how much we can get done while there is no access to the internet LOL.


I only took a picture of the lover's as I am too lazy to unroll and re-roll the piece. You know what the arbour looks like anyway. =)

Mel asked "can I ask, what are the clips on your stitching for?"

Hi Mel, they are my take on stitch clips which you use to tighten the side of your fabric. One day I was stitching Ivy and i couldn't get the fabric right (the way I'm comfortable with). I took clips and rubber bands and used it to pull the fabric sideways.
Also I find that the bigger the fabric, no matter how much pulling you do to tighten it, it will eventually start to sag esp. in the middle. So I thought the paper clips and rubber bands will do the job and sure enough, they did, they've helped me alot in my stitching, I have been using them for quite a while, I also use them to hold my pattern LOL. Hope this answers your question.

Thank you guys for visiting and for all the lovely comments. It sure keeps a stitcher happy enough to pursue her stitching career. hehehe

Great progress!!! Internet do take a lot of my stitching time away from me (that's why I mainly stitch at night : when I'm done with internet ;) )

You are doing great! Much progress has been made. I can't wait to see the final product!
And yes, the internet does take away from stitching. That's what I should be doing right now! But instead I'm looking at your blog! :)

Looking great. ^.^ I hear you.... isn't it horrible not to have net access?? On the other hand, allll the other stuff you can get done, like the purdy bouquet. Hehe.

Thankyou for answering that. By the looks of it you use scroll frames. Thats a great idea. I mostly use q snaps but have a number of scroll frames and sometimes use them so I will have to remember that for next time.

Your progress looks great. It is amazing how much stitching one can get done when there is not internet

Wow, it is looking gorgeous. This is going to be so beautiful when you get it done. Like you, when the internet is down it is amazing what all else I manage to get accomplished, it's unbelievable sometimes how much time can fly by when playing on a computer.
