glad you're enjoying it and I'm happy that I have helped some of you with the actual technique ~
Soooo, here's my finished work:
(before I snipped off the 'snags' on the front)
with a complimentary colored thread...
I tried to replicate an old tombstone look with my color palette,
very subdued and drab.
I drew up another little design, then I'll draw another, to get the most from my fabric...
Peter built this for me...it has piano hinges that allow the sides to fold up or down.
or on it's base, like a regular box-frame.
let me know if anyone is interested in this kind of frame,
as I'm trying to talk Peter into making these for my shop & shows.
remember, it does have gripper strips to hold your fabric tight as a drum!!
thanks for asking!
the frame measures approx. 11" x 13" itself...the fold-down sides measure approx. 11" x 8" ~ it is made from wood, so it weighs a little but isn't heavy in your lap...it can be used on the table on an angle, in your lap folded so the needle doesn't stick you or on it's base like a rug frame...when it's on its' base, it isn't angled like a rug frame, but is flat across...I like that better than an angled lap frame because I turn my work :)
Blessings from the Farm!
