Yesterday I finished another page of "Coming to Life". 6 pages are now done....10 to go.
And I had a discussion with a friend about so called "parking" of threads instead of finishing each color off like I do. The last time I tried parking, all the hanging threads drove me nuts. Plus I'm somehow afraid I'll park the thread in the wrong hole, and stitch then with the wrong color in the next square. With 90 colors and heaps of them are similar, it COULD happen if I would make a fault in parking.
Anyway, our discussion burnt down to the point that I tried the parking method BEFORE I ever started with scroll rods. And following my friend it does make a huge difference. She advises also to use hair clips to keep the parked threads together. I'm not sure. One moment I think I'll give it another try, next moment I think...nawww....I'm fine.
May be....very may be....I'll give it another try.
Anyway, here is a picture of page 6 finished:
LOL....did I tell you that I'm not into cutesy at all? I can assure you, everything out of that grab bag belonged in the cutesy department. Grab bags and I just don't go well together. I knew that already...lol...but from time to time I need some assurance of that. My kids had a good laugh again, so at least I could cheer them up. A good mum should make her kids laugh from while to while ....right?
And because there are people that actually do like kits like that, or have children who might want to give it a go, or even know someone who likes cutesy like this, I thought I offer it here. Who wants it, can have it. Just tell me so in a comment and leave your email address so that I can contact you. If there are more then one person, I'll pop a name out of the hat.
The kit contains also Aida, a needle and of course the needed floss It's unopened.
