Day 39 - First day with Kreinik. Thread Heaven saved me because I was about to say no to metallics.
Up close on metallics. One little point, the pattern says to use 2 strands of Kreinik, don't. One is all you need.
Day 40 - I purchased the actual Q-Snaps, before I was using the Micheal's brand. They are both the exact same price but the clamp part from the Micheal's brand split and they were not good at keeping the fabric tight. I wouldn't recommend buying the one from Micheal's. I didn't know how bad it actually was until I bought the real Q-Snap, WOW! what a difference.
Day 42 - before I put the Q-Snaps back on.
After I put the Q-Snaps back on and got a little more stitching done.
My little men playing together. A rare sight these days.
I have started using the Kreinik while I was waiting for these picture to load. The pattern says to use 2 strands, but I think that looks bad so I picked that out and am now just using 1 strand and it looks much, much better. This is my first time using metallics so if anyone has any hints I would be forever grateful! :)
My oldest just got home from school with his first ever homework. He has to write his name out every night this week and return it at the end of the week and he had a MELTDOWN! He doesn't like homework, he doesn't think he should have to do it, there was feet stomping and everything! He even asked me if I would do his homework for him. But the homework is now done and he lost tv privileges for the rest of the night. So I hope I nipped that in the bud and tomorrow night it will be a quick write your name and we will move on with our day... fingers crossed.
UPDATE: The boy just brought me in a worm and told me he found a baby snake in the dirt. I guess all is well in the world again.... BOYS!!!
