Letter by letter

Jane Rees finally got put in some Qsnaps and clamped to my Lowery stand.  I also had to pull out the magnifier to work on the 40 count Ricamo.  My eyes just can't handle it without a magnifier (my old glasses prescription might also be a factor).

Even thought I took this photo while Jane was still on the frame, you can still see I've made it all the way across the top; considerable progress from the last photo posted.  Long ways to go though, which is why I'm just taking this letter by letter.  As much as I love Jane, she's sort of like doing homework.  I don't exactly love the stitching process with her.  I think it might be the fabric.

She looks beautiful Mindi, do you intend having another sampler to run along side her to give you some variety?

This is beautiful! Love the lettering and the color that you are using.

Don't get discouraged...maybe try different forms of magnification and/or better lighting.

She's lovely.

Mindi, your Jane is coming along beautifully! Since I started stitching with a magnifier I depend on it now to see how my stitches lay.
