New Cross Stitch Toy
This is the 17" size that I will be using for Mother Earth, a Heaven and Earth Design by Jessica Galbreth. On my fabric (0ver 1) this pattern will be about 12.5" by 16.5". I can see why everyone raves about these. They hold the fabric snug, but are easily adjusted. Plus because of their geometry they do not put tension on a bias (or even worse on a radial bias such as with a hoop).
My fabric is light blue, but you won't end up seeing in once the piece is finished. This lets me get in another PS2 photo in before the end of the month though.
I hope you will excuse me for a moment of geekiness:
If two grids intersect
and a pattern reflect
that's a moire.
When two patterns entwine
In a way serpentine
that's a moire.*
*I didn't write either of these. I just remember them from college physics.
