Summer Quakers - update #8

It hasn't been long since the last update, I know, but I feel like I've made some pretty good progress! Plus it was time to move the qsnaps, so I was able to get a full progress shot. :)


At this point, I have about two pages left, but they are the larger full pages, so there's still a lot of work to be done. I wonder how fast I can go. :3

Speaking of speed, the Lowery stand has been great so far! I really love being able to stitch two handed without contorting my body to hold the qsnap. I may end up wanting the longer L-arm eventually, because my couch has a wide arm and I suspect it will be difficult to stitch the areas nearest the clamp, but for this particular project, I've only been working on parts away from the clamp. Once I switch to another project, I'll quickly see if I really need that longer arm or not...

Of course, no shopping at all this month, no matter what. Staying strong. :)

  1. Nice progress! I've noticed that with my stand as well, the parts closer to the clamp are a little annoying to stitch, but still possible.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I'll see how it goes with my stand. I do suspect it will be kind of tough to stitch near the clamp, simply because my couch has a really fat/padded arm, and I'm not sure how I can move MY arm around near it. :)

  2. Great progress! I hadn't realized how big the pattern was until you took your progress pic!

    I always stitch with Qsnaps or hoops. Perhaps one day I'll move on to frames to stitch on....save my wrists. Lol

  4. Great beautiful update as always!!
    Glad you're still resisting the temptation.
    I agree, I'm currently focusing on a big-ish piece and am so motivated to finish it because I can see it coming along nicely :)
