21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Help Me! I'm trying to teach myself Cross Stitch! on: June 10, 2008 08:48:53 PM
So I recently undertook this huge cross stitch project... when I saw the picture on eBay it looked small, I bought the pattern and it turns out I get the pleasure of learning to cross stitch all on my own, and making two 8x18 pictures... anyway I have mastered the cross stitch, gave up on the french knot, and am about to finish the first picture, all I have left to do is the back stitching. I have a dumb question...

Do I double up the thread, like I've been doing for the cross stitches, or do I just use one strand since it's for the outline?  Huh

I've tried searching for the answer to my question everywhere; here, Youtube, Google, etc. But I am worried I will run out of floss before I even start the second one if I have to double up... the kit I bought came with the floss all cut and measured and whatnot... and I don't think it's DMC floss which is the only kind my craft store sells, so I don't want to run out!
22  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Origami Change Box on: June 05, 2008 08:00:08 AM
Okay so this is probably the least crafty thing on this entire website, but it looks like it will be awhile before I finish my giant cross stitch and I would like to post something!

My boyfriend has this thing where he doesn't spend change. He brings home piles of it every day, and we didn't really have anywhere to put it so he would just leave it on the counter, or on the dresser. So I broke out my scrapbooking paper and made a nifty little box! It took me about 2 minutes to make, and I used this tutorial: http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-box.html
