No, I haven't. Thanks for the head's up.

IIRC, it's love in chinese. Pronounced Ai.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: 1 Year Wedding Anniversary! on: March 22, 2005 10:32:46 AM
The first year anniversary is celebrated with clocks and paper. At least, that's what they say.

If you go the traditional route, you could make him a clock with images of his fav MMORPG as the faceplate. Even if you can't print out the images, you could probably pick up a gaming mag with enough pictures. Or, since he's a programmer, the binary clock from thinkgeek.

Otherwise, how about a computer screen cleaner done up as his fave MMORPG critter, or as his kitten. Or, the ever so ubiquitous ipod/laptop/PDA cosy.

Thanks for replying. That was a long time ago, and I didn't like the results I got, so I cut the skirt up and turned it into quilt panels.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need some advice - re: what to do with finished cross-sitch on: March 22, 2005 10:21:33 AM
Iron on interfacing on the wrong side will do what you want. Or, you could serge,zigzag stitch, or bind the edges with bias tape ala quilting.
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: PLEASE HELP!! My husband is gonna kill me on: March 16, 2005 09:50:15 PM
Be honest. It was a gift from you anyway, right? It might fool him for a little while, but if he ever finds out, the consequences will be much worse than if you just tell him.

Like a band-aid, girl.

My husband just read this over my shoulder, and he winced and said to tell him too.
7  Arizona / Arizona: South / Art supply stores in Tucson? on: March 10, 2005 01:26:18 PM
Just wondering if anyone in the area could tell me where to find disposable fountain pens. I know Pilot makes a line called Varsity that comes in 5 colors. I've tried Joanns, Michaels and Office stores, no luck. Sad
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tatting help with picots.... on: March 09, 2005 09:42:16 AM
If it is the first stitch in a ring, then skip the picot part until the end. After closing the ring, tie  your thread ends together to form a mock picot, which will be in the correct position to be the first stitch. This also lets you 'climb out' to the next round without cutting and tying.

With older (read richer) relatives it's the thought that counts. What are her tastes in shopping? You could send her little single serving sized chocolates, e.g. a single Godiva Truffle every so often with a 'photo of the month' or even just a note from the family. You could also think about home deco items, rich or lacy pillow covers (with a gift cert for a pillowform at the local craft store) in her favorite colors or in bright cheery spring colors, lampshade, baskets or knicknacks that get replaced seasonally.

If she is very far away, maybe things that she may never have seen before, local candy, authors. Maybe a local artisan (or you) makes something unique to the area?

Ch1 represents the first stitch, since you're starting from yarn at the base of the row rather than the top. When starting a new row, skip the first stitch as the ch1 (or 2 or 3 in some cases) is supposed to substitute the first stitch.
