One little addition. If I press the reply button, I can see the whole topic there.

Same here. And I use Google Chrome 4.1
So I guess the problem is not browser specific.
This happens only while opening a topic. I can still read the blog.

Thank you so much!! Smiley
The shadow work is really interesting! Smiley
Well Shadow work is basically herringbone stitch inside out on a sheer fabric. The flash made mine look too sheer but the person, the pieces look almost crayon tinted...

I commend you on pushing through and finishing it. It's difficult to get/maintain the motivation to finish the long, time consuming pieces.
I worked on that piece on and off. and there were times when I just wanted to unpick the whole thing and do something else, but unpicking itself was such a big task so I decided to finish it instead!

Here are a few things I finished over the last couple of months... They use different techniques, but I didn't want to create separate posts for each of them, so the post is a bit pic heavy... sorry...  Smiley

I started this piece in my 'I love quilting, but don't know how to start phase'. Looked for simple quilt blocks over the net and converted them into a cross stitch pattern.
Simple as they seem, they were actually very very time consuming.
The tension of the thread was a problem since I made it over a span of 2 years. I am such a louse I know...

This I found in a pattern book. Although I don't quite recognize the place of origin, but I liked the dress... I am sure it looks much much better in real!

These are from my shadow work phase. They are a part of a single table cloth.

The yellow thread doesn't stand out like this in person I promise. It must be the flash I guess....

I'd really like any C&C, any pointers to improve my technique...

I ordered a stitch in the ditch foot, walking foot, and an ankle from this seller and he was great too.  I live in Canada and it took no time at all!

I am glad you liked him.
I was fascinated how he managed to ship to India in 10 days flat! I guess I'll be buying more stuff from him now!
26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Need a replacement for bamboo screen... Help on: March 14, 2010 11:48:54 AM
Hi all,
I had put up a bamboo screen on my bedroom door for privacy. I lined it with another curtain, so that the insides won't show.
However, since the area is very tight, the screen started cracking at places.

And my two Labradors think that the screen is their personal toy. They actually managed to bite out a hole in the scree to simply peep out of the room!!

I am looking for some solution to this problem. Now there are a few constraints....
1. The greens... I am quite short on cash these days, so would really like something that doesn't require much investment on my part.
2. Privacy... My house being a small one, the bedroom opens straight in front of the main door. so I am looking for something that would not be see through.
3. Flow... I am looking for something that would allow one to move in and out of the room easily without shifting much and won't crack like the screen.
I tried using fabric curtains instead, but after a few walk-ins and outs, the curtains shift and the whole point of having a screen is defeated...
Please help...

Okay, so here's what I eventually bought.
1. Square ruler 6" X 6"
2. Rotary Board 12" X 18"
3. Rotary Cutter 45mm

I guess this is enough to get me started.
And if anyone's interested, the seller is very good. He shipped pretty fast, even though this was an international shipment. And the package reached me in perfect condition. Do have a look at his store, I liked it a lot.

Your 'fix' looks great!
And about the chalk, do let me know if it stays! Smiley
29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Go fly a kite! on: March 05, 2010 09:47:37 PM
I love it!
The black string doesn't look out of place. It does match the silhouette. I think it'll look out of place in some other color....
One question though, won't the chalk color fall off after a while? How did you set it?

how'd you do your handles? it looks like some sort of shell stitch but i can't make out exactly what kind.
I am not sure what the stitch is called. I sort of made it up till it felt good. Here's what I did:(crochet newbie... pls excuse the vocabulary.)
Row 1. Simple chain  - 100 stitches
Row 2/3. double stitch on both sides of the chain
Row 4/5. alternate double stitch and single stitch to achieve a scalloped look.

I am not sure if this is the correct way. I simply followed a couple of pictures I had, and tried to achieve their look...

Love love the stuff you make btw. Smiley
