CQ Siesta

Started this CQ RR today and added this lace to the bottom corner

I am pleased with how the central beading came out

I thought I was going to have a problem. I wanted to hoop the block but it was too small and I needed to sew right up to the edge of the block, but then I remembered these

they're called Siesta Frames Bars and I used to use them with Aida for cross stitch. Makes so much more sense for a block than a circular frame :) and also proves I am right to never throw anything away ;) Well, it might come in handy one day - and it did.

Just wanted to say thanks for the school advice Jacqui. I've got a lot to consider....

Jacqui - just thought I would let you know that I have used frames like this and they work well -
some people don't like them but I find them useful
