but first today, snow-blowing. now to play!
i have been wanting cozys for my gripper frames..
would rather buy and i did special order one from
for one of my frames but thought i should be able to tackle them!
i didn't have a pattern and couldn't find one. so came up with my own and still
think it would have been easier to buy them!
if anyone has a secret on how to make these please share!
mine came out ok. i tried 2 different ways, they are a little big i think.
i tend to be kind of a perfectionist..so if there is a pattern out there or a secret on how to make them i probably would try again.
***just checked mail and received this today already! bought on the 25th! wow! fast! and i can see not i made mine to wide for one thing.. cant wait to try it on my frame tonight! its for the gripper frame i added the lap app accessory.
i also wanted a lap app but really wanted to incorporate one on to my hooking frame.
Dennis came up with the Velcro idea
and i must say it works perfect and cant wait to do some stitching tonight!
i still want to add a sheet of sandpaper to the main board
i made a cover to help with ironing
i liked this fabric cover..
and Dennis liked this! so will use this one
i have also been on a needle kick (next week i need to get busy with soap!)
anyway i am working with one strand of floss and like the size 10
embroidery needle but i cant find them except in assortments
i don't want assorted! i want size 10, i also have trouble with
the needle bending so researched a bit and thought id give these a try
(hopefully tonight!) anyone have a needle they especially like?
oh and i did order readers (4 strength) as cant find those anywhere either
i have been keeping etsy sellers busy!
thats my show and tell today!
enjoy your wintery days my blog friends! jody
