Thank you fo your kind comments, I'm so glad that yo liked everything and I am SOOOOO glad it turned up, I think it took about 45 days? Phew!

Here is how I made the chart for the counted cross stitch.

1. Save your caffine molecule image from this web page:

http://theformofmoney.blogharbor.com/blog/_archives/2009/4/12/4150745.html

2. Use this tutorial to convert your image to a (rough but readable) counted-cross stitch chart to use:
http://ltsmith.tripod.com/pshop/cs1.html

3. Print (in colour!), pick your thread colours and stitch away!

Using photoshop isn't quite as good as an using an actual official cross-stitch converter programe as you can't input things like count of the fabric and also it doesn't provide you with the thread colour numbers to use, but I found it was good enough to produce a pretty workable chart. I drew the 10 lines on with pen to make it easier to read.

Also what Glink kindly didn't add was that the smaller coffee cuff that she has used on Blair's juice cup was actually my prototype that I wasn't 100% happy with. I sent it along anyway because I know how kids like things like their mums, and don't need perfect stitching so I'm glad it whas been put to good use.



thank you so much!!!!

Ahhh, I am soo sorry that I didn't post pictures yet! It has been seriously the craziest two weeks ever! But anyway, here they are now! I received the most incredible package from the lovely Giddiup222. These pictures obviously do not do it justice, since all I have is a crappy webcam, so Giddiup222 if you have better ones, please feel free to post em! But seriously, everything is super awesome!

Also just a warning, apparently I cannot take pictures by myself without making ridiculous faces. Don't judge, it's been a long day haha Roll Eyes

First up, an awesome earflap hat and a gorgeous bird necklace! Usually, I don't really like jewelry, but this is right from my wist and I LOVE IT!


Next up, get this! She made me an entire winter ensemble completely sewn by her! Including: Another ear flap hat!


Andddddd a scarf and mittens! How cool is this! And everything is super warm and fuzzy!


Seriously, these pictures do not do everything justice! Thank you soooo sooo soo much again! Everything is so well done!  Cheesy
