I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I saw something entirely different in the hot new topics thumbnail made me go OMG it wasn't marked mature,  I got a huge laugh when I realized what it actually was.  I think I need to pull my mind out of the gutter (again) lol

I thought the exact same thing!!! I called my husband in from the other room to see what he thought when he saw the thumbnail and he thought that it was naughty too. We laughed a lot. It's not so naughty when you actually see it in the thread though.

This is fantastic!  I got netipots for everyone in my family.  I had to convince them that it is only gross when someone else is doing it.  When you do it to yourself, it's totally normal.  I wanted to make us each our own tericloth storage bags for our netipots, but now I see that I'll want to embroider a label for the bags like you did.  Great job!

This is so cool!  It reminds me of George on Six Feet Under, that eccentric man of neti pots.  Personally, I couldn't stand to use a neti pot, but I love your instructo-gram!

With regards to the ironing, it really helps to use a) more steam or b) a spritz bottle.  I had never used a spritz bottle or mister before I broke the steam button on my iron (long apartment relocation story), but I swear it will take out creases where just the steam from your iron won't.  I'm not saying you suck at ironing!!! Far from it.  You just may not have been introduced to easier methods.

Keep up the great work and continue to take stitching inspiration from pictograms.  I'll never look at one the same way again!

I love pictograms!  They convey so much in so little space and often it's even helpful!  Yours is wonderful!  I've been saving an instruction sheet for another item hoping to embroider it someday and your post may have inspired me over the edge.  I often photograph pictograms when lucky enough to traveling in foreign countries and doing them in embroidery may be an awesome way to commemorate my trips!

Get out of town--that's awesome! ::happy dance::

sanourra - Thanks for the ironing tips... I do actually suck at ironing, but I think it's because I'm just impatient. I'll take your advice in mind, but then maybe also add in a pre-iron massage. Wink

MistressT - You have to stitch some pictograms from other countries! That would be so incredibly cool.

You probably need a better iron.  It should be easy and quick.  I got a Rowenta and thought I'd died and gone to housekeeping heaven. My mother-in-law visited, used my iron and promptly went home to replace hers.  I only iron fabrics, table linens, and crafts, I rarely iron anyone's clothes...  Wink
