|Moved my SAL/Stitching Stations||Aug 4, ’11 9:25 PM
after we moved in the new furniture so picture my stand to the left of this chair – swinging out toward the door blocking the walk way.
I had Baltazar, in the dining room, on my American Dream Floor stand but because Baltazar was so big and heavy I was using rubber bands to hold up the weight. That was also bugging me to no end.
So today, I moved all my cross stitch stuff into the bedroom off the kitchen. Stash to the left (in pic) of chair. T.V. table for Baltazar notes and 50 needle holder with blends to the right of chair. In between, the pink roll around drawer storage unit and the table our two metal popcorn tins stacked so I have somewhere to set my drink and snacks without risking threads or stash.
I have retired (for now) my American Dream Floor stand to the other side of the room along with my Dazor. I use a Visual Mate 2 around my neck for both light and magnification. So unless I deem it necessay, I won’t use it. Dazor is covered with a pink towel to keep sun from shining through and possibly starting a fire. Also note, stash between Dazor and American Dream stand on floor.
Bonus! Because my Lowry stand is now on the right side of me again, I don’t have to reach around the clamp anymore. And the chair it is positioned under lets me put it further away from me for a wider swing so I can now put Baltazar on my Lowry stand too.
Here it is with a little Lizzie Kate SAL project on it.
And this is Baltazar a.k.a. Teresa Wentzler’s The Castle! I am so thrilled I don’t have to use two different stands anymore!!!
This is how far I got on Twilight Vampire’s Mistress after I finished moving everything. It isn’t even 1/3 of the way across the fabric – that is 90 stitches across!
The solid square is 100 stitches and the line across 79 stitches.
I have had quite the productive, and talkative day today!!!
