Thread: I cut my fabric

  1. #11
    Glenda,

    The actual mounting the fabric, if its longer then higher or the opposite doesnt bother me, but its looking at the huge piece of fabric and thinking about a stitch in everyone of those holes is what sends me into a panic

    i look forward to your photo Glenda In my mind when I am stitching on my large piece I just imagine that I am doing lots of small items i.e. one page at a time but that they are just all on one piece of fabric - that way it doesn't scare me so much in other words I don't look at the big picture too often just my one little A4 page that I am doing x and I always say that I am in this for the long haul so I know it is not going to be finished in a few months like others I have and am still doing

    That is what I do too Chris, even stitching Haed charts which are quite big this one has to be the biggest yet and when I held up the fabric i just couldn't see A4 pages all I could see was the squares gridded off each of which represented an A4 page and there were oodles of them, so I folded it up quickly before my mind took off and was never seen again?

    Chris,

    I never gave it a thought the way you think about stitching a huge piece. Quite a good way of thinking about it!! I might try that!! because I have a tendency to look at the whole huge piece of fabric and it goes well for awhile and then I think I just become overwhelmed with looking at so much to be done yet that I just get discouraged. Like my Wait For Me, even though I am half finished , my mind dwells on the fact this pattern is 72 pages huge! and I just become to overwhelmed with it all.

    Lucy I only look at the fact that i am doing 32 pages of rbtw when I take a photo of the whole of what I have done but inbetween I prefer to think of large stitching as lots of small ones it helps me get through a large project much easier - not that it would work for everyone but I am quite simple really and can be easily persuaded to look only at the piece I am doing at present and I hope to have this page done in two weeks time x

    Hello,
    I'm trying to figure out which picture you are doing? I'm going to be doing a South African Map that will be over 50 x 56 inches on 16 count. 150 pages of charts. I also am feeling a little giddy at the thought of all that fabric and will do it rolled up not on stretcher bars. I'm just waiting on some fabric to see if I can do it on 20 count instead so it won't be quite so large.

    hi and welcome to GK RBTW is 1050 READING BY THE WINDOW http://www.goldenkitestore.com/index...oducts_id=3116 which I have been stitching on for quite a while - 2 years to be precise

    is your south african map a GK chart? I would love to see the picture of your map we have a SAL each weekend - two weekends are for GK charts and the other two weekends are for non-gk charts - this helps us get through our projects because we encourage each other and it would be lovely if you could join us with your stitching
