Hi guys! Sorry for disappearing for such a long time! I've been settling into my new apartment and I'm really happy with how I've gotten my stitching corner set up:
We found that armchair at Goodwill for $25! So much comfier than my awful old couch. I've already spent lots of happy hours stitching and I've completed another column on Boreas!
You might see that I had a brief flirtation with using a marker to grid. I found that it wasn't precise enough for me - the line was thick enough that I couldn't tell exactly which row of holes marked the edge of a column, which means it wasn't very helpful as I still had to count to double check. I ended up going back to the Guideline, which I find much easier. But next time I start a large project I'll DEFINITELY be buying Magic Guide fabric.
Finally, yesterday I visited the state fair and I got to see my cabin project on display! No ribbon this time around, but maybe if I ever finish Boreas, I'll submit that and see what happens :)
