1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cross Stitch Help: Converting Photos on: January 22, 2017 08:08:46 AM
I've used Myphotostitch a few times: http://www.myphotostitch.com/Make_Pattern/Make_Pattern.html

It's pretty user friendly (and free) - you choose your size and number of colors. It's a bit of a trial and error practice to get the balance right but I've had good results.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Favorite Online Needlepoint Stores? on: January 22, 2017 07:23:43 AM
Hi All,

We have a serious dearth of needlepoint stores in my area - our Hancock Fabrics just closed and the closest independent needlepoint store is 30 minutes away and only open while I'm at work.

Do you have any recommendations for an online needlepoint store? I'd prefer an independent seller or an online addition to a brick and mortar independent needlepoint store.

Thank you!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / How to store quilt in progress? on: July 20, 2014 06:23:18 AM
Hi All!

I'm new to the quilting forum here and am working on my first quilt. I am hand quilting it together now and am really enjoying the process. My question is: What do I do with it when not actively quilting it? I have two kids and a husband and it's always getting moved around - but I have nothing to keep it in. I feel like it would safer if it was in something. Any advice? Thanks!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Removing paint and Sharpie with home methods instead of paint stripper? on: March 07, 2011 01:11:25 PM
I've gotten sharpie marker off of wood with a Magic Eraser. I don't know if that would work with walls though. You may have to primer it. You can get Kilz primer at any hardware store, it cover's pretty much everything and comes in oil based and latex.

My suggestion is thrift store sheets for curtains and wall hangings. Anything with little flowers is really sweet in a little girls room. And I'd paint that changing table white.
Here's a tutorial for making crib sheets. http://stardustshoes.blogspot.com/2008/05/crib-sheet-tutorial.html
I do these with cheap fabric from Joann (1.99/yd or so).

A pocket organizer wall hanger thing would be handy too (and would cover up some wall).

Very cute. Thanks for the link!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you keep a crocheted rug from slipping? on: March 18, 2010 06:06:36 PM
I've heard of using that puff paint stuff to make no slip socks. Maybe it would work for rugs too?
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Interested in cloth diapers for baby #3!! on: December 29, 2009 02:31:31 PM
I love the Rita's Rump pattern. http://handmadebyrita.blogspot.com/2007/10/httpwww.html
I make them as pockets with fleece in the outside and flannel on the inside. I make the inserts out of microfiber towels from the automotive section at Costco. The fleece is still a touch leaky so best for around the house. PUL would be better.
