View Full Version : Hooting and stitching Night Owl

February 16th, 2017, 03:04 AM
Hoot hoot! How are the night owls? I have been enjoying working on a very simple cross stitch on 14 ct. Aida fabric. After working on 28 ct. linen this is a piece of cake. I'm sewing a nativity scene. I've been stitching a camel. My finger started hurting a bit from all the sewing. I was too lazy to get up and get a thimble, though. :) This is the stiffest Aida I've ever experienced. It is from a Janome kit. It is too stiff to be put in my regular bamboo hoop. It pops the top ring off. I can sew it holding it in my hand like a piece of cardboard. With a Frixion pen I can sketch out the outline right onto the fabric and even mark a ten space grid onto it. Boy, that is a lot easier than using threads.

Tell us your news...how's everyone feeling tonight?
