I'd thought I would share this little tidbit of information regarding my embroidery work. By placing a large silk pillow on my lap while I'm embroidering keeps my work clean, and helps relieve the weight of the project by having to rest it higher - closer to wear my hands are at. It also minimizes hand fatigue, and even serves as a large pin cushion when needed. The smoothness of the silk prevents my threads from fuzzing up, and best of all, I find that my posture is better as I am not leaning over my work.
