Christmas ornament




I haven't been doing a whole lot of stitching lately, but I did manage to finish this design from the 2007 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. I've left the buttons off for now, but I might add them in when I do the finishing.

Hi Lara:

This is a great site. I enjoy seeing your work in progress.

I have a technical question. Some pictures show your frame system. Do you like it and where did you get it? I am trying a roller system for the first time instead of a hoop, and I don't think its going to work because it doesn't have side tension.

Thanks.

Howdy Denise! Thanks for stopping by. :)

I'm using Q-snaps, which I like a lot since it does give pretty uniform tension. And you can interchange various sizes to get just about whatever frame size you want or need. I used a scroll frame early on, and I have kept one small one for doing small rectangular projects (like bookmarks), but otherwise I use the Q-snaps for all my projects. I might even get their big ones for small quilt projects one of these days.
