New Stitching Toy

So I belong to a Facebook group about cross stitch stands. There is a lot of talk about the Millennium scroll frame made in England and the Quantum scroll frame made in I believe Estonia. They are both really nice but pretty pricey and the Millennium takes like 6 months or more to come in. The Quantum is a little faster than that. Also on the site Judy Odell of Just a Thought has developed her own stand and scroll frame. Right now the introductory price is $45.00 and you get two size bars. The small set you can put a 16 inch piece of fabric and the larger you can put a 26 inch wide piece on. The key for all of these frames is the way you tighten them. It's a type of bolt on the side. This makes the frame tighten the fabric really well. I mean boy howdy it is tight. The JAT is not as fancy as the others but I like it so far. It also came in in 5 days after payment.

I have it balanced on the Q-snap attachment on my Needlework System 4 stand. It's working for me right now and it is just so tight I love it.

Wherefore update

So I am almost done with part one. Just an FYI for anyone stitching this with the specialty threads, you will need 2 skeins of the WDW 1318 Concord. I am also almost out of WDW 2336 Ultraviolet. With 2 more parts to stitch I'm sure I'll need 2 of it too.

Thanks for stopping by.
