I had learned cross stitch from nuns and I had never used a hoop or a frame.

Stitching with the aid of a frame or hoop is infinitely better than stitching without. I wasn't taught by nuns but learned needlework in school and we had to use hoops. I didn't stitch for many years and then somehow got used to the bad habit of stitching without hoop/frame. My work looks good but I can always tell the difference. I've met two or three ladies that stitch as I do but I would not recommend it.

Miss Crossstitch you don't need to start a new thread for a question already asked. Just answer the question where it is asked.

SYagel, she won't stop because she wants to reply this way. She is our dear Miss C & won't change. Was once in a prayer group with a dear thing who kept saying "Women in our day weren't allowed to drive because the men said we were too weak.". So grab the reins, sit down, & hang on tight. ( Good to supply the right info, if she's galloping down the wrong path, however.)

Sorry jlhewes I am getting so tired of her remarks I am seriously thinking about getting off this chat room. I just can't understand how she can act like she knows so much. I am in my 60's and I know I don't know everything. One of these days I am just going to stop posting here. I don't like it that so many of us have to go in and correct her, because her information is so wrong sometimes. Good luck to you, Texas Stitcher, Senior Stitcher, and jclifford trying to keep her straight. It has been nice chatting with you, and I will miss you.

Syagel, you can't leave us! Instead of becoming upset, look upon it as a source of amusement. I always read her posts first because they are hilarious. The other day she busted out with something about retirement - it was totally unrelated. I had a really good laugh. Another option is to just ignore it. I have my senior moments too, usually when I have to multi-task. When I receive an answer and look up the comment I made I often say "what in the heck was I thinking". It's like my brain and fingers are no longer in sync. You are so knowledgeable,, patient and dependable - we need you here. Who else will do all the research and answer the same questions a hundred times over?

Miss C, I've told you before that she will not get this post in her email. It only happens in "REPLIES". You should believe me because the people who taught me to stitch were much smarter than nuns.

Sorry Texas Stitcher, I have had my fill of Miss Crossstitch. There is no way she is funny or amusing. She has become a "pain in the you know what". I enjoy funny things, but she has become just plain disgusting. You guys are on your own with her. I will miss you all, but as long as she keeps giving so many incorrect answers to people we are trying to help, I am out of here. Sorry.
