I also did another row on the Hex on the Beach quilt.
I'm looking forward to seeing some more of the fabrics being introduced as I add more rows.
Then, glory of glories, my Millenium Frame arrived from Needle Needs! If you are following the Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year Blogs, you'll know all about these frames. I stitch in hand, but I want to stitch Scarlet Letter's Manifesto in a frame since I want to use 40ct silk gauze in tent stitch over one. So I've been waiting for my frame to arrive. The silk gauze is very thin and rather slick compared to linen, so I did have to put some scraps of linen in with the silk gauze to hold my silk gauze in place -- trial and error. But it worked, and I'm happy! Here's my frame with my Manifesto start. (I'm using the AVAS silks.)
I would love to have a floor stand to work on, but for now, until the stands come back in stock, I have to make do. Here's a close up. I put my scissors in the picture to give you an idea of the size of 40ct over one.
Those are 3/12" Dovo scissors. Doing tent over one on 40ct silk gauze is easier than doing over one on 40ct linen IMO. But hard on the eyes! I'm planning on working on Manifesto one or two days a week as an SAL.
Mia has been a contented kitty, nothing new with her. Here she is trying to keep warm during one of our recent cold snaps.
And here she is, helping with changing the sheets on my bed. She loves to wait and pounce on the pillows when I throw them back onto the bed.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week.
