Weekly Craft Update – May 4, 2015

First things first in honor of Star Wars day…

*giggles* yes I am that nerd

Okay, now onto the reason you’re actually reading this.

Great stitching week. Kind of a quiet week for me, so I had good time to sit and stitch, which was great and brought lots and lots of progress. I didn’t even realize how much I had gotten done until I looked at last week’s picture. I found more of the bottom edge, as well as the right edge as well. I really do love getting to the edges on these big pieces since it gives me a scope of the overall size that is sometimes hard for me to visualize. Alright, enough rambling, onto the good part…

Being that this is my first time really working with evenweave, I have learned to be extra careful when counting over and really switching colors is best done when I can work right off of stitches already done. Too many spaces means I might count off by half a stitch and that really screws me up. Since you can see it in this picture too, yes, I tape my edges with blue painters tape. I find that the adhesive releases better without leaving residue behind. The downside it is thin so when the edge is in my q-snap, it will sometimes tear the tape. 

That’s it for this week! Happy crafting and keep smiling!

Okay, so this is where I am supposed to be witty and cute and tell you how funny and awesome I am to get you to read my blog. Well….. not sure how that is going to work. I am a stay at home mom of two, one is my minime high school student and theater chick, the other is my homeschooled dancing dude, who is momma’s lil man. I get to stay at home and do all this cool stuff thanks to my awesomeness hubby who works his tush off so I can. Of course staying at home isn’t for everybody, and we’ll dive into THAT some day I’m sure, but I love it, and I have my crafts to keep me busy. That is what started this whole thing. Hubby said to me “babe, you should start blogging” and well, here I am. Good luck and enjoy! And yes, I do approve all comments, but don't think I'm censoring everybody. I will let negative ones through as long as everybody plays nice. View all posts by craftymomchronicles
