Thank you for all your warm birthday greetings~~~~ I appreciate each and every one of them!!!
I bought myself a birthday gift last week. I have been thinking about getting a stitching stand for a while, and was hesitant to buy one because of the cost and not being able to see one in person. I don’t want to spend a whole lot of money and ended up with something I don’t like. Then I saw this stand in Michaels. It was only $50. With the 50% off coupon, it will only cost me $25 to get it. I thought to myself, I’ll give it a try. If I really don’t like it, it wouldn’t cost me that much anyway.
I really didn’t have high expectation for it. But to my very surprise, I absolutely LOVE it!!!!! It is very easy to use and adjust, and now I’m hooked~ If I have to pick on it, the only thing I would say is the clamp can be a bit difficult to release. It might be a result of my putting a towel between the clamp and my frame to protect my stitching. But I do not need to release the clamp very often, so it doesn’t bother me that much. So if you are looking for an inexpensive stand to start with, I would recommend this one~
With this stand, I’m learning to stitch with both hands. It’s not easy, I would often forget and find myself stitching with one hand again… I hope I’ll be able to get use to using both hands.
As for my stitching, I’m still working on the Friendship Sampler. I’m only done with the lower half of the border and will soon move onto the final block. At this rate, I just might be able to finish it before February ends~
I also received a surprise present yesterday. When I saw the package, I thought it was the one I was expecting from my sister. But when I opened it, these cute little things popped out of the box!!! It is a Valentine gift from my DH!!! I was super surprised, cause he is usually not a romantic~ Aren’t these hugging giraffes cute? I love it!!!!
It seemed that everywhere besides CA has been hit by big snow storms, one after another, especially in the East coast. I hope everyone is staying safe and warm.
I know I’m a bit early, but I would like to wish you all a very happy Valentine’s Day~~~
p.s.: I just realized this is my 100th post!!!!
