    Good morning everyone! This weekend is our SAL for both GK and non-GK charts. I'll be stitching on David when I can, but our golf course has opened nine holes, my daughter will be home, and Mom is still in the hospital so stitching time may be minimal. Will anybody be joining in?

    David looking good, you making good progress, wendy. Glad your hand getting better Abi. I start and finish on front so no flipping of frame for me even on cofettilicious areas

    Thanks Wendy, Enjoy your 9 holes I rummaged around and found Art and Literature small barely started. It still has all the threads with it plus it will fit on a smaller frame than Raquette so at least any frame flipping will be a bit lighter

    Robert I cant stand hundreds of ends all hanging about that's why I start and finish on the back and dont park threads, I'm weird
    Abi.....


    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not sure

    Okay I am in. How did it get to be Thursday already? I guess my busy season is officially here. I don't know what day it is anymore.

    Olfen I love the colours you are working on. They are among my favorites.

    Wendy your David is coming along so nicely.

    Abi hope you continue to improve. Don't go too hard when you start again.

ID:	8749 Why yes I am done colour 2. I got it ready for the third colour which is just a slightly green grey to go with the blue greys. Slowly, but surely it is coming along.

    You work like most stitchers I have met/come across. If anyththing im the weird one. Of the few that work diagonally none work like me. the starting on the front came from me getting fed up with frame flipping tostart, then developed to the form it i now which is highly adapted pin stitch. same with end. Move first to pinhed under which is tedious and awkward, so has moved to an adapted form of pinhead stitch which is ended on the front. Idea came from Karen Bugg.

    Do you use the pin stitch to start and end, Robert? I've always known about about the stitch but hadn't used it consistently until I started Magical Arrival Storykeep. With the 32 count over 1, I've found it's next to impossible to run threads under previously stitched work. The threads sink into the weave and you can't get under them. I either had to find a solution or start over on a larger count. Someone showed me how to use the pin stitch on small count fabrics and it works great! I'd be interested to know if you do it the same way.

    And I'm in this weekend, continuing with Magical Arrival Storykeep.
