“Mama’s Bukid” …

Here’s what it looked like last time:

Here’s what it looks like now…

Mama’s Bukid

I’m so sorry the picture quality is not the best. But it is what it is. I will try to do better next time.  I’m working on Row 9 and I’m just plugging along.  I try to do a bit each week and ultimately my goal is to get a row done each month.  Depending on how many colors in each row will depend on whether or not that is realistic.  I’m looking for a frame to use.  I do not want to spend a lot of money on this craft so I may just get the Q Snaps I see every where.  I’m hesitant because I generally buy the easy things I can get my hands on that I see every one else using.  But once I have it and start using it, I find reasons why I don’t like it and then I buy something else.  This is not my favorite craft and I do not want to spend a lot of money finding the best frame for me.  For those Cross Stitchers out there, what makes a good frame? What do you look for?  What should I pay attention to when looking for a frame?  I go back and forth between this plastic hoop that I loved when I got back into cross stitching a year or so ago and the traditional wooden hoop that I bought many moons ago at the big box hobby store.  Both work but I have to constantly remove the hoop when I put it away because while I mean to get back to the project in the next few days – sometimes I don’t and a few weeks or months may pass by.

Happy Monday!

Happy Stitching!
