Sewing method

After a number of emails asking about the sewing method, I tried doing a little video to show how I do it. Unfortunately, my Samsung tablet takes lousy videos and my phone is the $7 a month flipper you saw last post.  I don't see any adjustments for clarity on the device or in the program but will do some research.  Certainly can't see the over two linen threads but you can get the idea.  I will try other settings and distance to show the full stitch method.  There are other ways also but I've been a bonehead for most of my life and always go back to what I know. 
And according to many sources, I know everything.

Your video turned out fine.. and what a surprise to hear your voice. I hear a voice in my head as I read but it is never the same as the real voice the first time I hear it. LOL

Thanks for sharing.

I thought your video turned out fine. Thanks for sharing your sewing method. As you know I also stitch with the sewing method. I basically do it the same as you, except that I rotate my fabric instead of rotating my sewing hand.

Oh, P.S. you didn't sound crabby at all!

Oh yaaa ... so good to hear your voice and a great video too. I too do the sewing method but rotate my fabric which means that often I am upside down ... not good! I struggle with getting good stitches but then I want to enjoy it and not worry so much about perfection which it is NOT. I have switched back and forth with a hoop, especially for larger projects which I will try and stay away from as I call those my "Career Projects". The linen becomes too much for me to handle. Anyways I enjoyed watching. Keep safe and Peace to all, Barb

Good video and hello to hearing your voice.

Ohhhhhhhhh, now I see. I sort of do a bit of both, sew and stab depending on how lost I get in the pattern. Not painting the Mona Lisa here, good thing I like the Primitive look! Video worked out just fine. Thanks.

I thought the video was quite helpful. It made me realize that I often stitch that way too!

I've never done the sewing method but you make it look so easy and how quickly you did it even with the tablet in the way!
Melinda was showing me last year when I visited her but haven't taken the time to try it. I just don't want to put down my hook.
Thanks for sharing.
Hugs :)

What fun to hear your voice, Marly!

I personally love the sewing method and use it whenever I can. It's not only faster but I think it gets less knots and twisting in the thread. As for the horizontal lines, I just turn my linen so I'm going vertical at that point but I work in-hand so maybe that wouldn't work for those who use stationary frames.

Thank you for all of your tips!
