Golden Promises and IHSW results

More white!  I've been stitching lots of white this weekend to fill out my IHSW. 


I took this opportunity of all this white to take advantage of my new lap frame and try two handed stitching!  I have to say its going well.  I never would have thought it would go this well. Although it could be said that I am sittching just in blocks and it is on 18 count.  But I am starting to get the hang of it, and hopefully in the future as I get more comfortable, it will speed me up!   I hope to have this page finished soon and onto the next one in the near future!

Happy Stitcing,
~~~Vani~~~

Awesome progress, Vani. I'm really looking forward to seeing her face. :D

Great going on the 2-hand stitching. Makes everything go so much quicker. :D

Look at all your white! Can't wait to see your progress on her. I used to be able to two hand stitch, but I can't seem to do it anymore. Even with my lap frame I just still use one hand, maybe one day it will feel right again so I can stitch faster.

All looking great - I just cannot get into 2 handed stitching, so well done.

I get paranoid when stitching alot of white and become an obsessive compulsive handwasher as I worry about marks. But it's no problem for you, it looks great. Really makes the purples more vibrant. Beautiful progress!

Beautiful stitching vani. The white really makes the other colours pop right out :-)

I too tried 2 handed stitching recently, it is so hard for me but I can see that it would be quicker. Good luck and beautiful stitching!

Looks good Vani!! Lots of white done, and lots to do too!! I love my floor stand, but it doesn't match with my Q snaps, so I don't use it very often.
