When I stitch my rugs, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I like to mount them on some foam core. I have always stitched using one hand but the owner of a local stitching store told me she always sits at a table and leans the frame on the table to stitch with two hands. She told me this way of stitching was much faster.
Later, I read on the petitpoint website I belong to, about stitch frames that could be used while sitting in a chair that will hold the stitching piece for you so that you can stitch with two hands. I liked this idea and asked if someone could post a picture of one for me. They happily obliged and I set about making a frame for myself. Here is the result. It does a wonderful job of holding my stitching so that it frees up both of my hands to stitch. It took me awhile to get used to stitching this way but I often do this now.
My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
