Lamplight Bridge - new start!

My new start is Thomas Kinkade's Lamplight Bridge. This is an embellished cross stitch picture. It is mostly half-stitches and French knots. I have stitched 4 shades of green in the left lower corner. French knots on the flowers will come next.

This is one of my kits for the Crazy January Challenge, but I had only sorted the floss back in January and didn't start stitching it until now, since I didn't have the right scroll frame or Q-snaps for it.

I ordered several sizes of Q-snaps from stitch-r-stuff.com last Thursday and they arrived on Monday! I compared prices on many other websites, and they had the best deals. I am using 14x17 for this one, and 11x17 for A Paris Kiss. I really love how nice and tight they keep the fabric.

I am stitching this one for ME!

Very nice...I use Q Snaps often...they do not mark the fabric like a hoop does, and I like the all around hod compared to scroll frames....

Oh, I thought it was for me. I absolutely love it, but all those french knots....I don't know...half stitches would be all right
Will be following this one. Enjoy it.
