That's awesome.  I tried it on a picture of my dog and it seems to do a decent job.  Although I don't crossstitch much so it might be better to have someone a bit more experienced with that medium check it out.

Addition:  I didn't notice it before, but at the bottom it translates it into DMC numbers.  Shocked

I agree.  Michael's is waaaay too close to my house.  Even with no car right now it's just a quick walk. And I rarely go in without coming out without at least ONE skein of thread.

And I always have ideas for what designs I can do next; but I'm usually struggling with what to do with them when I'm done.  Roll Eyes  I'm even getting my first sewing machine ever (I'm old) because some of the things I want to do with my projects just aren't very practical if I have to hand sew them. It won't be the best machine, but I'm new to sewing with a machine, so it should be fine.

What an awesome find!  I'm jealous and feel the need to go to Goodwill.  Grin

I use Solvy and love it.  I also am in love with both of my water soluble pens and use them all the time. Sometimes I have a piece I want to alter mid-stream and they are wonderful for making those changes.

I really want a Q-Snap and love that light!  I want some sort of light for right where I normally stitch.  I also agree about washing your hands whenever you go back to your project. 
345  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered camera case - flowers and a butterfly! on: December 12, 2008 02:54:08 PM
I got a new camera last month and my mom was complaining that I didn't have a case yet.  I've been drowning in Christmas projects lately and decided to take a day off to make something for myself. I made a camera case just to protect my camera when it's banging around in my purse. The inspiration for the design comes from Flickr member apple and eve (http://www.flickr.com/photos/appleandeve/). Her stuffies are beautiful and worth several long glances if you haven't already found her.

And now I'm back with pictures!  I received from adubyah a while ago but haven't had the opportunity to take pictures until now.  I received two cute little ornaments!

The stocking was stuffed full of chocolates...which were promptly eaten!  I love the tree.  It's like a little stuffie that I want to carry everywhere! LoL

Thanks adubyah! And thanks again to riario for organizing!  It was such a great swap!

Hey everyone!  I had to leave town unexpectedly and just got back a couple days ago. I can't wait to catch up on all the ornaments I haven't seen yet.  Hope everyone is doing well!

I 2nd that sentiment.  I really want to get in on the next swap but if it's before Christmas I'd have to pass.  I'm up to my eyeballs in gift projects with no end in sight.   Undecided
350  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Huck Work/Swedish Weaving Blanket on: December 10, 2008 11:49:21 PM
Before she passed on my Aunt Doris started making this beautiful huck work blanket for my cousin Judy. Unfortunately she passed away before she could finish it. You can see this in the marking yarn down the center of the blanket.  I've seen tea towels done in huck embroidery, but never any work of this size. I was overwhelmed by my Aunt's beautiful work and my cousin was kind enough to allow me to take some pictures so that I could  share it with the one group of people I know that would appreciate her wonderful work.

I'm adding pictures here but feel free to look at my Flickr to see larger, more detailed pictures. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/fatewineroses/)
