3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is anyone doing digital scrapbooking? on: June 03, 2007 11:33:08 AM
I just got into this by default. I was at a scrapbooking party and the company (I don't know if I can say it here?) Had adeal where if you sign up to be a seller, you received their digital scrapbooking software and a coupon to have an 8x8 hardbound book printed as well as a lot of paper scrapbooking materials.

I signed up, thinking "what the hay, it's 110 bucks!" Their rule is you have to spend 25 bucks every 6 months or they'll just drop you as a seller, no biggie. The stuff they sent was worth over $350!

ANYWAY, I too am in need of some tips for where to get started with this! Any sites that have embellishments etc...  that I could add to my program would be great.

Just an FYI, the program they offer is about $50 and comes with several layouts. You can use them as-is or any of the pieces that go along with the layouts to create your own pages. There are add-ons for varying prices as well.

Let me know if you're interested in it-not because I want to make sales but because I think it's a really neat program. Cheesy (I haven't sold anything yet...I really don't care if I do!)

another option would be to put anchors in opposite walls and sew fabric with a pocket to hang along a wire. That way the curtain could be drawn halfway, the entire way, or opened.

Just a thought. Smiley

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about converting a pattern to circular needles on: January 13, 2007 01:25:10 PM
Here's the background: I have never before used circular needles. I got a needlemaster last night and I really want to try a project that's knitted in the round.

I found a project and did some math. This pattern from Lion Brand looks nice and simple, because I've used all the other techniques in the pattern. I have yarn of the same size, so I'll be using that.
Using the given gauge, the finished result should come out to about 20.5" (at 4.5 stitches an inch, and 92 CO).
The pattern is already written to be knitted in the round, but using dpns; so my question is this: How long should I make the circular needle so that it will not be awkwardly long, nor too short so that I have to cram stitches together while I knit? My options are 20", 24", and 29".
I just have never done anything similar, so I don't know if it's best to have the cord the exact length of the finished project, or if having it longer/shorter would work out better.
Thanks for any help you can provide Smiley
You always want your cord to be shorter than the actual circumference of your project-same size at the very most. Making it too big means you can't get the stitches to go all the way around and, in effect, stretch your project out. Smiley

Hope that helps, I'd choose the 20 since you said it was to be 20 1/2.
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Do Different Stitches Look Like and What Do You Use Them For on: January 13, 2007 01:03:16 PM
Deirdre what kind of machine do you have there?  It looks like it has a ton of awesome stitches!  Shocked
That's got to be a Husqvarna Viking (I'm sure I just spelled that wrong)

I got one for Christmas (Platinum series 755 quilt) and I'm in LOVE with it.

Thanks for showing the stitches! I haven't taken the class on mine yet and wasn't sure what to use all them for! (Imagine the surprise the first time I tried to do a zigzag stitch and my machine started sewing hearts!)

I was just coming on here to post MY newest monster bag made from the tute on here.

wait for it...

wait for it...

Seriously. We picked the same fabric?!?!  I have about 1 1/2 yards left over-got it when Hancock fabric went out of business and I had to buy 2 yards.

He now has big fangs too-I realized when I finished I forgot to put them on so Ihad to stitch 'em in...AND broke two needles...and possibly my sewing machine, trying to sew through that thick fabric.

Love the bags. Smiley
