WOW! You’re really taking this new-to-you craft and running circles around it! Great work! Congratulations on all your progress and with the Feature!

Have you yet tried a Q-snap “hoop”? They’re GREAT! You wouldn’t want to frame your piece for display in them, but they are wonderful to stitch with.

This is so helpful!

I love all of these, so many great ideas! The details on bridge one (Brooklyn Bridge?) are great, even the background fabric looks like a moody sunset. And I actually laughed out loud at the bigfoot one, he looks so confused! :joy:
