Pre-6FM SAL Confession and IHSW

I was a bad girl this last week.  After getting my first ever generic Q-snap, I didn't want to put down my 6 Fat Men.  I wanted to keep seeing how much different it was to work on that fabric with that kind of frame.  So I worked on him all week.  Also, this past weekend was International Hermit Stitching Weekend and guess who I worked on?  Yep, 6 Fat Men.  But don't worry, I didn't get but maybe 50-100 stitches done.  I've been having a tough time with my knees, especially this weekend and was distracted by the pain.  Now, if you'll remember, this is where I got to on last SAL day:
.And I really thought it only fair that I post a pic of my progress on him from this week and weekend before I start on him for today's SAL.  So here is that pic:
Yes, I know I made that thing on the left one solid line, here's to hoping I can just stitch his arms over it and it be okay.  I'm really hoping I can finish this block today, that would be so nice!!  Now remember, this was all work done this past week, not during the SAL!  Now I'm off to stitch!


  1. Shanda, you naughty girl. LOL! It's okay. So how did you find the Q-Snaps? Is it better to work on? I love how drum tight it can keep my fabric.


  2. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with your knees. :( I hope they feel better soon. Your first block is coming along beautifully. :)

  3. That's excellent progress. I'm sorry to hear your knees are bothering you.
