I absolutely, positively knew exactly what this was about before I even clicked on the picture.  Love that episode. Love Rory. And absolutely LOVE this.

Definitely, "this rocks."

littlemojo - Don't be discouraged by the lack of great patterns.  First off, LuluB has posted a preview of a pattern she'll be posting on CraftStylish tomorrow here. It's very pretty! --->> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271611.0.

Secondly, if you can't find something...make it up!  It's one of the things I'm really liking about embroidery!  That it's pretty darn easy to come up with something if you can't find exactly what you're looking for!  To come up with what I'm stitching I did a search for web pages and images of "Breast Cancer Awareness" and "Breast Cancer."  I looked through pages and pages of images, sketched a couple of ideas, saved a couple of images and wrote down a bunch of keywords. From there I let it stew and came up with a couple of ideas.  I'm still in the sketching phase, but hopefully I'll come up with something fairly concrete soon so I can start stitching!

More than anything though, I'm having fun with it!  You should too!

misswiss - My heart is with you and your family.  I am constantly coming up with inspiration from these boards..but sometimes have issues with execution.  Grin Don't give up hope!  Starting small is usually best!

LuluB - Wonderfully simple and simply wonderful.  Thank you for sharing with us early.  I'll be sure to look for the pattern.

I've narrowed down what I want to do two about two different types of things.  I know for sure I want to do one major one that will be bigger and more intricate.  I'm hoping I can get that one done early enough to try the other couple of ideas I have. 

Now I can't wait to see what kittykill comes up with.  Cheesy

Those are great!  Is that one of those stars you can get with the mirrors on them?  They look very professional.

Excellent!  Most of the patterns out there for turkeys are..well, turkeys!  Did you freehand it?

Wow!  Don't check the thread for a couple of days and all sorts of goodies popped up!  Awesome!

I just have to shout out to nullgal that I haven't forgotten about her!  As a matter of a fact, I'm in the middle of crafting a couple of small pieces and having a blast doing it!  Of course, one of them is turning out so cute that I'm going to have to have someone drag it from my claws when it's done..and then promptly make one for myself!!!  Grin  I have a couple of other small bits I need to finish off and a bit of purchasing to do; but the item will be off in the post before the deadline!

Am I wrong or is the signature on the back a part of the pattern on the front?

Awesome though. Just awesome.
349  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's the difference? on: October 03, 2008 12:55:58 PM
I'm not qualified to answer your first question, being a noob myself, but I have found several resources through Craftster posts.

First, here's a thread that has a bunch of resource links.  - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=196856.0

Here's the shared pattern thread; which has TONS of resources. - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=8772.0

TreeCatus' website is a GREAT resource and might actually answer your first question - http://www.needlenthread.com/

And some sites I really like the patterns on:

http://www.sublimestitching.com/
http://www.urbanthreads.com/
http://www.subversivecrossstitch.com/kits/bitch.html
http://radicalcrossstitch.com/

And the very best way to find awesome patterns? 

Haunt these forums and look AND read every post of the projects you like the most.  Most everybody posts where they got their patterns from, and if they don't, you can always ask!!!
350  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Breast Cancer Awareness Stitchalong on: October 02, 2008 08:04:12 PM
I posted something in the Discussions and Questions forum asking if anyone was going to do any Breast Cancer Awareness Stitching this month in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month and kittykill suggested a Stitchalong!

Yay stitchalongs! (Yes I'm lame.)

So I'm posting this in hopes that others join in.  Maybe we can find an organization that might be interested in having them to display or something else?  Not sure.  I'm new at this.

Now that I've said all that...I KNOW WHAT I'M STITCHING!  At least the subject anyway.  Now to find some material, finalize the layout, transfer patter, get thread and STITCH.
