Thanks so much. For themed fabric, Spoonflower is a great place to either find it or have your own printed. Over 300 came up in a quick search. I've had several prints made and they are great to work with. http://www.spoonflower.com/welcome

I can't count how many times I've read all four as "brain candy." And I love maps! I wish I had thought of this! Husband is a lucky fellow and your gifted!

Regarding map versions, Christopher Tolkien redrew his map in the 70's. So there are at least two versions. I got my 1st copy of The Hobbit in 1989 or so, and I recall that copy had forwards with at least one addressing map versions and corrections. The linked article notes J.R.R Tolkien often gave conflicting descriptions of Middle Earth.

 Grin Thanks! I love doing embroidery, it's my really quiet time for a compulsive "do something". And I like curves too. Work was, uh, "inspired" by pin-up art.

I got tired of doing kits but getting a decent transfer was just a miserable challenge for me. So I set doing anything aside while I tried to figure out what would work for me . . .   I did this by taping wash away stabilizer to a card and running it through an ink jet printer and then clamping the stabilizer to the fabric in my hoop.

I really just want to cry  Cry

I love letterboxing, stamp carving, and crewel. And have zero art talent, I have to rely on others. I have tried laser and iron, ink and acetone, carbon paper, and can't seem to get any of them right. I tried just last night to iron a design on a tea towel from a laser print and got more smudge than line. Same with transfer paper, I must have drug my hand along with the stylus.

So I thought I would try ironing the laser on Stiffy and then basting it to my towel. That seemed to work OK. After I tore the Stiffy (after having to work on my Singer 99 hand crank I grabbed because I was sure it didn't need any maintenance, wrong . . ) I thought "I know, I'll use basting tape." At 10:0 PM . . . helps if you put the Stiffy under the fabric, not on top next to the iron . . . open to any suggestions. Been searching the web off and on all day looking for "Transferring for Dummies"
