WOW! Who knew? Those leaves shown at the second link you posted are stunning!

I must have seen bright check purl before, because now that I see it up close it looks familiar. Guess I just did not know what it was at the time.

Thanks again for the info. Smiley

Picking the colors was the easy part of this project. Smiley

Thank you for checking her out.

Tis true Crafty, but these things run in cycles.

Right now paper, knitting and crochet are hot. Give it time and cross stitch will come back.

For me I have old patterns, and seek new ones out online, too.

No fear, there are other cross stitcher's out here. Smiley

At the base of the petals, and the top of the stem what is that stitch? It almost looks like bugle beads, but I know it is not.

Wow! Thank you so much for that expressmail Smiley I'm thrilled you like her.

The idea of painting the face did cross my mind also, but I came to the same conclusion as you.

They are both cute, but the second one is awesome!
5920  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hoops & Cross Stitch on: December 18, 2007 04:43:27 AM
I always use a hoop or a frame - stretcher bar frames are my favorite! You don't have to re-tighten the fabric, and you're more likely to keep the fabric "square" on the grain. They're cheap and re-usable, and come in all different (mixable) sizes. It takes more time to set up a project on stretcher bars, but not as much time as setting up a project on a frame. In either case, the results are generally much more regular when you use a frame, stretcher bars, or hoops. On all my hoops (I only use good wooden ones - cheap ones can snag your fabric or even stain it, and the plastic ones tend to wear out more delicate fabrics), I bind the inner ring, which helps keep the fabric taut and which minimizes any wear on the fabric. I only use hoops on small, quick projects - anything that's going to take time goes on stretcher bars.

^^Ditto^^Also I think stabilizing the project helps to preserve the fabric and stitches.

I use a Q-Snap. It is so awesome and doesn't leave imprints on your fabric.
I'm not familiar with a Q-Snap. I did Google it to see what they are, and they look very cool. But they look big and bulky. Are they difficult to deal with?
