1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Font issue in Word --- nervous breakdown possible on: May 26, 2008 06:10:45 PM
OK!!  I'm quite possibly on the verge of a nervous breakdown.  Once, I made some onesies for a friend, that I typed these cute blurbs in Word, printed, traced and then embroidered.  For the life of me, I can't remeber how I "reversed" the font, so when I ironed it on, it was going the right way.  Now, I want to do again for a gift/project, and I can't find how to do it anywhere.  Please, if you know, pass on your wisdom.  I'm about to have a breakdown!!

Thank you so much! Donna
2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Blankets Needed!!! on: April 01, 2008 06:28:56 AM
Hey everyone!!  My church is in great need of blankets/throws to take with them on their mission trip for the people of Swaziland. 

Swaziland is a small country, about the size of the state of New Jersey. The
population is around 920,000 people. The figure from 2000 was 1,000,000; however, the HIV - AIDS pandemic is taking the lives of thousands of Swazis. Swaziland leads the world in the rate of infection with HIV - AIDS. Recent figures published in Swaziland showed 47% of the population is HIV+. Officially, the rate of infection is 43.7%. The BBC is projecting that Swaziland will become the first country in modern times to become extinct by the year 2030 unless something changes.
The Mission:
For the past four years Life Fellowship has sent a team of men and women to Swaziland to minister to this country. Our focus has been on projects and programs that will allow this country to begin to heal itself from the inside out. To this end, we have taken on larger projects such as building schools and orphanages, as well as purchasing a brick making machine that has allowed one village to not only build additional infrastructure, but to start a business of selling bricks to other villages to raise money to further impact Swaziland.

If you're like me, and you have extra blankets/throws/quilts that you have made, please consider putting them to good use.  They can be ANY size! 

Please contact me directly for additional information:

Thank you,
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Jewelry question on: January 23, 2008 07:51:28 AM
I have never worked with polymer clay before, but I am wanting to make my daughters ballet class a necklace with a ballet pointe shoe on it.  I've been combing through many of the tutorials for the past few hours.  I'm going to make it in a square shape, but I didn't know about how to get the shoe on it.  I want it to look something like this style:, (if this is anyones work, i'm just using as an example Wink

So I'm wondering, do you print the picture out, and put on the clay
after it has baked, and then glaze??  If so, how do you get that transparent, smooth look?

Please feel free to direct me to any tutorials!
Thanks for your help!!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Pillow case on: January 22, 2008 04:23:19 PM
I made this pillow case for my friend for Christmas.  I know, I know, I'm late, but I had to get motivated to sew the trim on the opening!!  Sorry if the pics are a little fuzzy, crappy camera!

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / my cracked out backstitch on: September 18, 2007 08:04:14 AM
Last night I had to rip out a back stitch twice!!  Why am I having such a hard time with this stitch.  I have watched the online tutorial more times than I care to, in hopes that I will discover something new.  However, no such luck.  My stitches are very inconsistent in size.  Sometimes they just look like a little dot.  I take my time, and really try to pay attention to making sure I am attempting to make them all the same size.

If you have any suggestions, PLEASE let me know.

I am doing some stitching, but I also love to paint, and I used some of Jenny's patterns to do some painting on a denim jacket for my youngest daughter.  I will also be stitching this on a swim suit cover for her this summer.
