Funny you should post today Alanna, I was just having a conversation with my daughter (the one who selected this pattern) about the progress. I am using my huge quilting hoop for this right now because I was very unhappy with not getting enough tension on my new Q-Snaps. Meanwhile, I have finished a wall hanging for her cousin, and it needs to be quilted, on the huge quilting hoop! When I get done with this third page of the unicorn I am going to take a brief break and quilt the wall hanging, then get right back to the unicorn. When I take it off the hoop I will get a picture out to Meredith for the gallery, and our next update.

You're thinking of Divecat (Christine) and yes I know that her work on Ehret is stupendous! I was talking about Divinenanny, the Dutchie also working on A mon seul desir... Wink

OH YEAH! See, having a barometer headache for 30 days is eating my brain Crying or Very sad Hmmmm, I don't know, either. I will have to see if I can find that blog again - I think I had it bookmarked on my previous machine....

Found her - there hasn't been a L&U update since July, but it was looking good then:

It does look good. Better than mine! Her's doesn't appear to have the lumpy problem that I seem to be plagued with. See Alanna, fast does not always equal nice!

Oh, do we know about the lumps! My Fair Faced Woman have them in abundance The only reason they don't show up on the photo in the gallery, is by using forced flash when it was taken Laughing

I have found that on 22-count I get a more even surface when I complete each cross as I go. I'm still testing this, but my next one; "La Belle Dame sans Merci", is so far much more even. Mind you, this pattern does not have quite as many confetti areas as the other patterns I have done, that might account for some of the improvement.

But lumps or no lumps, it's great fun stitching these lovely patterns, and when the finished picture is in its frame it looks good anyway.

Happy sitching to everyone from an eager sticher in Norway

Hmmm, hi Vibeke, your comment on completing each cross as you go has reminded me of a question I've been wanting to ask for a while... see new post in Stitching...

Do we know what size fabric she is working on for her unicorn? Maybe a larger count would cause less lumps. I always try to go smaller when possible, but this gives me something to think about. I make a complete "x" when I stitch, have never done it the other way (stitch halves then come back and stitch the other half).

I don't know that I really have any lumps on L&U, and on another largish piece I am doing on the same fabric (22ct), but I am doing a very simple piece on it, too, and it has lumps - and because it has zero confetti, I am doing the Danish method. Maybe that is where the lumps are coming in...? I wonder... I'll have to think about that the next time I'm working on it. Though, really, once I get the next row or two on, the lumps subside a great deal.

And L&U may be all lumpy, too, but how can you tell ? Shocked Laughing

How can you really tell? Apparently, no one can. Except me. I can see the lumps, but everyone tells me they can't. Hyper-critical much?
