New Moon TUSAL

This poor jar has fingerprints but my tiny thread scraps are piling up.  All part of the Totally Useless Stitch ALong hosted by Daffycat.

I've made a bit of progress on Snow White.

I almost have the second row of boxes complete.  As you can see, the third row is well underway.  29 rows in all, so this will take me a while.  Still, it's progress, and every little bit helps.

Also linking up today to Needlework Tuesday at Books and Quilts.  What are you working on?

4 people stopped folding laundry to write:

Yes - definitely progress - the way you work some of the areas of color down make me think of paint dripping on canvas.

What kind of stretcher bars do you use? When I did that very large embroidery for my Mom for Christmas, I started it on stretcher bars and to a certain degree I liked them - but I started having problems and finally took them off and went back to a hoop.

I use a "Sit-on Needlework Frame" that I love. I slide the base under my leg and it's at the perfect height to stitch. Comes with different size stretcher bars for different projects. With both hands free, I keep one above and one below my work and work twice as fast. Google that phrase and you can find them. I see at Overstock.com you can also get a hoop style.

Snow White looks great! I'm also working on one of the Disney Kinkades. I can't seem to find very many people taking these on in blogland, so I'll be following along to see your progress!

Snow White is so pretty so far! I have this kit, also, but I am making myself wait to start it until I finish the Kinkade Beauty and the Beast kit. I am a little over halfway done though, so I am hoping by the end of the summer I will be finished with it. Also, I love the harps you have on your site - I play, and it's rare to find other players :) So hello, fellow cross-stitcher/quilter/harpist! :)
