Hi Lalah.
Thanks a lot. You are right, it is nice to lie in the sofa to embroider,
but you know my embroidery is a whole jacket included gold work, so i
simply has to use the frame to get a good result. But i  can tilt the
frame to my height where i sit, so it wold be quite comfortable i think.
Thanks Lalah
