I usually stitch in hand, so I just use my frame to hold my chart and threads. Of course, my trusty Dazor lamp is nearby too.
Did you notice the sampler on the footstool? That is my John Foster (Historic Stitches) which is nearly finished. Just a couple of more hours left to go.
Here are some more photos of John. "He" certainly has been a very enjoyable (and fast) stitch!
Here is what John looked like last week when I took Rachel Hyde to my framer and picked up Hannah Lancaster At the same time, we looked at frames for John.
And now here is John as of this afternoon. All that I have left is to fill in the trees near the bottom.
I'm sorry that the color in the photos is not better. I'll get Tom to take a much better one once John is framed.
I'm looking forward to the premier of a new teaching project this weekend. It should be a great time, and I hope to get some photos of share with you of the class and our excursions. (Oh that just reminded me to pack a hat for our high tea on Saturday afternoon. How much fun is that?)
I think Friday evening after dinner we'll have some stitching time. I don't know if I should save John to finish then or start on the new sampler that is on my stand waiting patiently. My original plan was to work next on Ann Hair, but heaven knows where the threads are. I've found the linen and the chart, but not the threads. Thankfully I've finally learned my lesson with having
misplaced lost threads--I now make a color card with a photo of the sampler and put it on the ring with my threads. Boy, does that make things easier.
