But I WANT it (saying it as I stomp my feet). My first frame was purchased on eBay and did not hold the linen taut. I then bought a used Puritan, also on eBay, and it has served me well for many years. I've cleaned the gripper strips but it's just not gripping as tightly as I'd like. I am assuming the needles (for lack of a better term) get dull since replacements can be bought. Recently I also bought a used Morton frame. The needles are very sharp and it's great for small rugs, but I want something with a larger work area. After taking a test drive on Melissa's frame, this is what I want :)
I have not heard one person who hooks with a Snapdragon frame say they don't like it.
Too bad I just had my little SUV radiator replaced (and I need tires and another somewhat major repair - UGH!). That was slightly more than the cost of the frame . . . sigh. So you just may be seeing some things for sale on the blog. A girl's gots to do what a girl's gots to do, right?
I'll leave you with this picture of Ellie. She has been acting strangely the last couple of days. I'm not sure what's going on, but when I came upstairs a bit ago, she was sitting on the landing looking so guilty and a few feet away was a little "puddle". When I yelled at her, she went and hid under the couch. She had just been outside (and did her business) and by her reaction, she knew what she did was wrong. Oh how I wish I could get inside that little puppy brain!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
