Yesterday, when they stopped stitching, they had a terrible argument about Zar having to stand behind the screen and push the needle back through. It went on for 23 minutes and 11 seconds.
I finally got tired of hearing it, so I settled it myself.
I told them that the first one to the embroidery frame today got the front.
Sometimes, when he stops to reason things out, Zar can be pretty crafty...
He spent the night in a sleeping bag in front of the screen with three alarm clocks and a cat to wake him up.
It worked. He was there and ready to go, when Tessie arrived...She was still a bit sleep confused and he simply pushed her behind the fabric and told her to get to work...She did. Amazing what a little cunning can do...
We are down to five motifs left to do. We can do that standing on our heads....Don't quote me or hold me to it!
I have an idea...Keep in mind that the photo is a simulation. A glass, flower frog and a big crochet hook will not be in the finished item.
I couldn't find any dowels, so I had to fake it. I do think that it will work though. I am going to mount the dowel on a base and stack the doughnuts on the dowel. Then when I need something, I just slip off the ones above the one that I need.
I am happy to have the extras. That means that I can change out the ones in the case for different ones, depending on the project.
