QGT Update

Well, I made a little bit of progress on Quaker Gone Tropic.  I am loving this project except for the fact that I think I need new glasses.  Even with my magnifier, I'm having a hard time seeing the threads to stitch over one on.  And this is only 25 count!  But I have no plans of giving up my over one stitching.  I'll just make an appointment with the eye doctor and get some new glasses and get back in business.  I'm loving the colors in this thread.  At first I wasn't sure if I would like them or not but the more I stitch, the happier I am.  Hopefully this week I'll get more done on it and have much more progress next week.

The colors are really pretty. Hopefully the eye dr can get you back in business quick. ☺

That is really pretty Bette. I love the colors. Are you stitching with one needle on the left and another on the right?

Glad to hear you're loving your project, is it just this picture or does your stitching look close to the edge?

Dani, what you're seeing is the edge of the the fabric under the q-snap clamp. There's actually 3" of fabric above where I started. So I'm good there.

Kathy, I'm actually only stitching with one needle. The reason I didn't continue on the left side was my magnifier didn't reach that far and I didn't feel like repositioning everything. Just lazy I guess. LOL!
