That is beautiful!  I absolutly love the tail feathers, and the texture on the feet as well.  Great idea to use french knots for the comb too. 

I love it!

I admit, when I hear tech-obsessed friends or coworkers talk about how their newest touch screen i-Device only cost $200+ and an extra $80 per month- the only thing I can think of is what I would do with an extra chunk of change like that if I used it on floss, patterns, fabric, and all things stitching.   Grin

Does anyone else feel somewhat let down when they recieve gift cards to places that don't sell stitching supplies? 

Who here has created a spreadsheet of floss because that DMC checklist just doesn't cover it all?  *raises hand* 
My wishlist on Herrshners is longer than any other wishlist I have out there. 

How about one for all of the patterns you have, and a second sheet on that one of patterns you really really want?  *whistles*
Yeah.  I got bored and I like databases and spreadsheets.   Grin

I'm glad I could help you out!  It took me a while to dig that one up, as I kept finding links for the darklilac converter that doesn't exist anymore.  So far it has done the job for some small sprite based patterns- and the colors it suggests have been right on so far. 

I think I am going to use any spare cash I get as a gift this holiday to purchase one of those real pattern converters...  it might be easier to get the colors just so with more complex stuff- and use some of the gee-wiz nifty features they all talk about having too.  Cheesy

I pick up cool stuff when it's on sale.  I figure, it can't hurt to have it around for a future project...

THEN something like this happens: 
I find out I lack the right color of floss, or I only have Adia, evenweave and linen in the wrong count or a color I can't use for what I have in mind- so I have to go back to the store.

Thus it's justified if I purchase something when I don't want it, I will have it at the point I NEED it which is handy, especially if I realize I need something after the stores are closed.  Wink

Aww, too bad you're all the way down in Anchorage...   Sad

I did see quite a few posts in the Alaska regional forum regarding Anchorage activities and knitting spots though, which might be a lot of fun for you!

Welcome to craftster and congradulations on your recent marriage too.  Smiley 

816  UNITED STATES / Alaska / Cross Stitch or Rug Hooking stores in AK? on: December 11, 2008 03:26:41 PM
I saw a few of the posts from you guys about the knitting place in Anchorage.  I'll have to check it out the next time I go down! 

However, I was wondering if any of you have reccommendations on more specialty craft stores in Alaska- particularly Fairbanks area?

The bead store is very nice, but I'm sort of taking a break from beading right now, due to a lack of good beading space at home.  The Snow Goose (or what ever it was called) yarn store near the Johanson that was in the same plaza as the bike store is now closed too. 

Also, does anyone know of a good Rug Hooking store anywhere on this side of the country?  I moved up here in 07 from NH where I was fortunate enough to live fairly near a great one.  Now I hardly find anyone who knows what rug hooking is.  Even a nice webpage for supplies would be great.  I keep turning up latch hooking or felting stuff, but no go on the regular burlap and wool strips.

I go to Anchorage from time to time since I have friends down there, so I'd love to hear about options in that area too!  I dearly miss the specialty cross stitch place in NH... Michaels and JoAnnes just don't cut it. 

Thanks!

Wow... lots of people down near Anchorage.  Sad

I'm up in Fairbanks.  It looks like there's really only the bead store here now or Michaels and JoAnnes.

Wow!  Congrats on that find, that is just fantastic.   Grin
819  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Meineck Design Group Charts? on: December 11, 2008 12:07:33 PM
Thank you so much!  I shall drop them a line in that case.  I really appreciate the heads up.   Grin
820  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Meineck Design Group Charts? on: December 08, 2008 09:26:04 PM
I really like their dragon patterns, and have about half of the set.  I'd really like to get my hands on the rest of them, so I can end up (eventually) having the whole set of dragons!   Grin

However, MDG seems to be pretty hard to find in the US and the lack of cross stitch stores in Alaska doesn't help.  I never seem to find them up on eBay when I take a peek from time to time as well.

I found their web page, but their cart system is acting up and not letting me create an account.  I also can't find a way to get a shipping quote for said chart... 
http://www.meineck.com/categories.asp is the link to their stuff. 

At any rate, has anyone run across them in their stitching adventures or had luck ordering from their web page? 

They have really nice looking stuff.  I have my fingers crossed that someone knows of a US company that imported some and has them available which will ship to Alaska.
