So today, with my arm feeling better and after dealing with leaking water issues with our master shower (another post for another day, I'm sure), I sat down and put some work into Italian Vista tonight.
|As of 8/21/12|
I do know where my camera is, but tonight I was lazy and didn't want to go upstairs to get it, so we have another phone pic. I'm pleased with the progress I made tonight! I also spent some time mapping out where I'm going to start stitching once I finish this building bundle. I traditionally start my projects in the middle, but this piece is unique in that so much of it is composed of the trees and sky and water, it's not easy little sections that you complete, back stitch and then move on from. But I think I know what my game plan is, and that's a good thing!
I do have a few questions out there for those of you who use something other than a hoop to hold the fabric while you're stitching. What do you use and how does it work? See, I typically like stitching in the evening in my reclining chair on the couch with my hubby, leaning back, feet up, stitching away. If holding the hoop for extended periods is exacerbating my elbow pain, I want to find an alternative, but I want it to be something that I can still lean back and recline on my couch with and that isn't too bulky. Any suggestions are welcome!
Off to bed for me! Until next time!
