Weekly Update




It's time for another update. I've made some progress on the poppies. It seems to have slowed slightly. I've been doing a lot of reading lately and my stitching seems to suffer when I read a lot. But it's getting stitched slowly but surely and I'm more than happy with it. I made a small start on the Lizzie Kate. The flash made the fabric brighter than it really is so the letters show up better in real life. I recently got a new scroll frame set (the Handi-Clamp which sadly is stopping production) and I plan on using that instead of the q-snap on this piece.
As far as the graduation sampler is concerned, I decided it does need a tassel. I was debating on how to to it when Karen suggested satin stitching it. That sounds real good to me so I am going to try and finish it this week. Then I'll start on the one for Sherrie's college graduation. It's hard to imagine she's graduationg from college. Where did the last 4 years go?

Oh if you don't want to do a satin stitch tassel you can always do an actual tassel.... I had them on my wizard piece.

Poppies look fantastic. Just a suggestion - You can include a real tassel (much smaller version) to your cap, too, if you want something a little different. :)
