I just wanted to say that I love the font you chose for the message. What is it called? Also, I'm curious if you graphed this free hand, or if you used a computer, or if you skipped the graph and just stitched away?

What's the trick to get them to work? I have tried and tried and never got a pattern onto fabric with those red pencils.  Embarrassed

I don't know if there is a trick, but what I do is this: sharpen the pencil, press firmly while tracing, set my iron at the highest heat the fabric can stand, use the steam setting, and only move the iron veeeeery slowly across the design. It takes about 45 seconds on each section of the design for a good dark transfer. Pressing for 60 seconds makes it even darker, but I can't reuse the tracing if I do it that long.

There is another brand of the red pencils that I can't make work, no matter what. The design transfer rubs off while I work. So I stick to the Collins.

I use Collins Heat Transfer Pencils with great results - and I use them often. I have a huge collection of vintage embroidery transfer patterns I have collected (I <3 ebay), and rather than ruin the transfer, I photocopy it, then trace the copy with the pencil. Well, I do admit that if I have duplicates, I'll use one set, to save the work of copying and tracing... but usually I'm good about preserving the transfers.

Yep - My partner is completely awesome, as well!

And... I know my color scheme to use, so now I need to settle between three different pattern sets I want to use. Amazingly, the colors I selected will work with all three, equally well. Which one? Which one?! Oh well... I'll figure that out soon.

Right now I am tatting an edging for the first towel. By the time I have the edgings done and on, I'll have decided upon the embroidery design.

Well... at least you weren't the one to let the cat cookies out of the bag...

Sorry. I thought they'd be similar, not the same. I'm sad because I can't eat these anymore. I haven't been able to come up with a good gluten free version. They come out too dry or too fally-aparty. They really are the most addictive cookies ever.

I  have a recipe that sounds similar... And looks like the pictures.

1 c. butter
1 c. light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1 c. quick oats
1 c. crushed cornflakes
1/2 c. shredded coconut
1/2 c. chopped pecans
3 1/2 c. sifted all purpose flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. sugar
1 c. salad oil

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and beat well. Add oil and vanilla, then oats, coconut and cornflakes, mix well. Add soda, flour and salt. Stir in pecans. Form small balls. Place on cookie sheet and flatten with hands or a fork. Makes about 7 dozen

That is so lovely! I love the sheer fabric on the ruffle and pocket.

BrookOwens, that apron is so pretty. I love the main fabric you used! The ric-rac detailing on the pockets is adorable.

Alliestar, great site. I looked at the health & safety section, as you suggested... Am I the only one who thinks "tooth grinning" looks... evil?
