Sorry for being all off topic now, but I am so happy for my new job, and very excited about the new buildning as well (even though I am not sure I will still have the job by then, but I hope so). This is the entrance hall and "space ship" (at least I think it looks like one) from two different angles, the red arrows marking my office window and the red star marking the entrance.

How about some skiing stuffies? They could be poppets, people, or creatures.

That's a great idea!  Grin And maybe some mountain climbers underneath...

I hope the job goes well, and you get to move into the office next to the UFO! Cool building, and it'll be fun for you to personalize it.

this is a dumb question but when you use tear away stabilizer for embroidery do you put it on top of the fabric or underneath?

I just emailed the photographer who has it.  All the computers that it had been on, in my possession, have since died.  Smiley  Hopefully, he's still got it and can send it to me so I can litter the world with my handwriting. Smiley

LOL
This tickles me for some reason!

Underneath, I think.

I don't think this is a dumb question.  My first response was "Underneath!" but then I thought, "Hey, wait a minute -- it's tear away - it could go on top and never be seen!"  

Hey - it can be either way!  Check it out:  http://www.secretsof.com/content/3712

It appears that standard tear away is used underneath, though!

i also use tear-away to embroider onto fabrics that are hard to transfer onto...like denim, wool, felt or dark fabrics.  in that case, i trace the design onto the stabilizer, then baste it onto the right side of the fabric, embroider, and tear away.  i'm a newbie to embroidery, though--there may be a better way!

thats the way I've used it as well.  Though I think with something light coloured I would try and put it on the back because its hard to get all the little bits to not show on the edges....
