Hello again

Posted on

I cannot believe that it has been exactly six months since I last posted on this blog. So much has happened in that space of time… listing a vacation home, getting an offer two days later, driving 1200 miles to pack up all of our belongings and move them back home, volunteering countless hours in the school library, chauffeuring the kids to religious education classes twice a week, enduring physical therapy, surviving the Christmas season, and helping my daughter make videos for her YouTube channel. Last weekend my 7 year old participated in Jump Rope For Heart through the American Heart Association. This weekend she starts basketball (how is it that she is even big enough for that?). Needless to say, I have done no cross stitching in the last 6 months. None. As in, not one stitch. Time is always an issue in this household, but for the last year my neck pain has been so severe that looking down to do any kind of needlework would have been impossible. Reading is not so bad; I can hold a book out in front of me and not injure myself. So I have been spending every spare moment with the Chronicles of Narnia, Jules Verne, Lady Hardcastle, and Artemis Fowl. Reading is my second love (or is it tied for first?) so I have not been too disappointed that I haven’t been able to pick up a needle. But I have decided that I definitely need to spend more time on this blog, so I’m hoping this is the first of many posts to come for 2017.

  1. I have Rolaframes but never have I seen this lap frame holder. May I ask where you found it?
    Does it hold a Rolaframe set of rods and side braces or does it have a specific roller and side braces with it?

  2. My frame is called a Stitch EZ Frame. I bought it on eBay many years ago. The company has been out of business for quite some time, I believe. They had a video on YouTube that shows how to use it, which was uploaded in 2007. I probably bought mine around 2008.


    I wish I could find another frame that is similar! I have often wondered if my husband could whip up something just like it, as he is good with woodworking. But there never seems to be enough time in the day.

    I am not familiar with Rolaframes, so I don’t know if they are compatible with anything else.
