    ONE STITCH AT A TIME!

    I used to say I wished I could, so I threaded a needle and pushed it down through the fabric, reached under, pulled it out and poked around under there till the point came out the top!!
    pulled it through - ONE STITCH COMPLETED!

    Yesterday I managed to go in and back out in one motion and then to do two!

    Give it a whirl!

    Good work! I usually do one at a time, but two occasionally. I am just a newbie at it as well. Keep going!

    Congrats. I have never concerned myself with number of stitches on a needle. Really? I am glad the needle goes thru period. I am a handquilter not a contortionist expert. LOL. I think I am up to 8 in a inch and that's after years. LOL. If they ask how many you get in an inch, don't quilt for them. LOL. Of and the 8 to an inch is not all at the same time. Handquilting is fun and relaxing, I don't count.
    SO glad you are meeting the challenge to have fun with it. Enjoy.♥♥

    I'm just glad not to be moving my arm over and under cause I didn't use a frame so needed one to hold the quilt. Now I just drape it over an embroidery frame that has legs to rest on your chair seat (I can even use my recliner!)
    Whoopee! :thumbup: :thumbup:
