Yes, the writer of this blog is on the verge of going round the bend!!

We came to Kelley's Island for the day so Sonny could do a bit of work and meet a couple of customers. I intended to hook since I'm a little under the gun. Well, I forgot my frame!!! So I put this heavy stool on Janet's fireplace to hold down one end of the foundation fabric and found a needle on the counter ~ which I used to pin the other end to my jeans so the fabric would be taut enough to hook into. It just goes to prove where there's a will there's a way!!

And now, I must forge ahead!!! We did have a nice lunch overlooking the lake and did get in some beach glass hunting!! That saved my day!!!

Alice, I'm so impressed with your ingenuity! Not only that, you posted it from your iphone. If I knew how to comment from my iphone I would instead of here on my laptop to try to keep up with you! ~Ann

My first "frame" was 2x4s nailed together with upholstery tacks holding the foundation taut. It worked! I sat in a chair and rested the frame on the arm of the chair so that I didn't have to hold it. It was huge, lol!
