I was interested but I will have to think about it as my carpal tunnel syndrome is bad in my wrist right now, so embroidery is on the back burner at the moment.Alittlemusthave - I hope you feel better! If you can't use your wrist, don't push yourself - but also don't forget you could try a hoop in some other medium that uses less wrist motion. I've seen some lovely hoops using fabric painting, applique, etc. that might be easier for you.
Would it be OK to be working on a base before partners close? Since the base is about us and not our partners that should be OK, right?Jexxican - Hmm... the only issue would be that if you worked on it for a month it might be intimidating for your partner to match your output in just 2 weeks. If it's just a matter of timeshifting, like you have a vacation or something during 8/11-8/25, I don't see a problem, but please don't spend more than 2 weeks on it!
