This picture amuses a friend who thinks that once again I've taken a tool designed to do one function and adapted it for another. But I am firmly convinced the device I have Grass attached to, which was a cast-off from one of my brethren in Ives I snatched up immediately, was created to do the sort of thing I'm using it for.
For context, it's attached to the wooden thing in the middle of the picture below. I still don't know what this thing is called, but it has instantly replaced those damned embroidery hoops I hated with a huge stompy hate.
This next picture amuses me, mainly because I didn't notice what was up on the screen when I snapped it. I was trying to get a good pic of the Grass edges, to show what it looks like once the two edges are tacked down with teeny 'x' stitches and then a pin is used to rip out some of the threads to get a cool raggedy look.
