A somewhat successful IHSW

I finally managed to hermit a bit for IHSW this month. I worked on Bridge of Wings as I wanted to do some work on the sky so I managed half page 3 and part of page 4.

HAED - Bridge of Wings

I changed to my big Q-snap and when I did I noticed the lines between the columns of stitches. I really hope they will even out.  I'm not really sure why this happened so I tried switching back to the narrow set but that meant I had to put the clamp over the stitching. I really don't like doing that as I find it does leave a mark. Normally I would put some felt in between but because the stitching is so dense, the clamp wouldn't fit over both. Anyway I will not be putting it into the narrow frame again and will see what happens using the larger frame. I would really like to hear your thoughts on it. Does it look really bad?

  6. I sometime see the lines between the columns in my own stitching, but they usually disappear soon =) So don't worry!

  9. I can't see any lines, either. I had a few on the SK I finished, but when I washed and pressed it, they vanished.
    Your project looks awesome!

  10. Leaving mark line on the stitched fabric is what i always afraid of while using Qsnap. But in the picture here I do not see any mark at all so please do not worry. And the sky is beautiful, as always :D
