Would anyone like some whine?

Here is my latest progress picture for my November Montly Mania. I have seriously developed a bad, BAD attitude about this project! I love the fabric I'm using, I thought it was absolutely perfect for this project! But it's a 22-count and I'm using four strands of floss! If you've ever tried to get four strands of floss to lie together nicely you know what I'm going through! Nightmare!

Anyway, enough of that!

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving with plenty of family, friends, and food! We ate dinner over at my boyfriend's parents' house so sadly we have no turkey leftovers.

Darn it! I'm whining again! Somebody shush me!

Wait! One last whine! Today is the last day of NaBloPoMo and...
Thank you Comcast!

Okay, I'm done! And I promise I will have a smile on my face tomorrow because my oldest son is coming to visit us for two weeks!! Hooray!!

Have you tried a laying tool? I stitch in hand so they don't work for me but I know people that can't stitch without one. Maybe give it a try.

Take the preasure off! I really love that fabric and have never seen it before. I've never had problems with 4 strands before. Sorry!

I'm with daffycat on the laying tool. You can get one of the flat, metal bodkins pretty cheaply. Heck, I'd be pleased as punch to send you one--- anything to keep a fellow stitcher from stressing out! I'll be at my LNS this weekend and they're right there in the drawer waiting for me. I could have it in the mail to you Monday morning. :)

It's looking so pretty, but four strands would be a pain to work with. I don't even like three strands as they won't lay nice for me. At least with four stands maybe you can use the loop method to start sometimes, that might help a bit. Have a fun time while your son is visiting.
