SQL sucks! Cheesy

Mine is almost done. I railroad all of my stitches and it takes longer but it's worth it in the end.

wow time has been flying by so quickly this month!! There is a craft fair in early december I'm going to sell at. Since it's going to be my first craft fair Ive been scrambling to produce an inventory of some kind up and havn't gotten to work on Fiorinda's hoop much the last week.
I should get a lot of down time at my job today to get stitching! (i work at a little local organic ice cream shop and on cold days its begrudgingly slow) I just hope I don't get too many customers! lol

Woah, I never would have thought of trying that.  Makes sense, but it seems like it would take so, so much longer.  I'll give it a shot on my next project though!  Thanks guys! Smiley

I railroad a different way. The way I do it is like this: http://www.serve.com/marbeth/railroad.html
I also do both legs of the stitch and if a twist is too bad I'll drop my needle letting it dangle, turn the project upside down and let the thread spin to untwist itself.

Normally I'm a lot quicker but using a little hoop is slowing me down a bit. (I always use q-snaps)

Let's put the FUN back in dysfunctional!!
