I have been busy stitching away and I have 12 small finishes for the year but I'll save those for the next post. The question asked for the Wipocalypse was "Do you use stretcher bars, hoops, q-snaps or lap-frames and why? My answer is I use q-snaps, hoops and scroll frames.  I recently purchased my first set of Rolaframes, but I haven't used them yet (would require another new start) I am very impressed with their workmanship. I used to only use hoops but I found it hard to get the circles out of my pieces so when I found out about q-snaps I switched to them and I love that they are so light weight and I can hold the small to medium size in my hand to stitch. My Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler was the largest piece I think I've ever worked on and I used my scroll frame.  I have not used stretcher bars before but I've heard they work great for really small items. 
Well I guess I should go and make some more wonderful little xxs. Thanks for visiting and happy stitching.

You have some gorgeous WIPs! I love Pray, she looks so peaceful, and Mademoiselle Rose, and Bella's Butterfly. They're all so lovely. Oh and you definitely need to test those Rolaframes out!
