While my darling daughter has shown absolutely NO interest in stitching (and in fact often rolls her eyes when I dare mention stitching in her presence), she has become fascinated by crochet! Whenever I pull out a crochet project, she leaps to my side to watch… I better get her started on it before the excitement passes.
I decided to get one of the Epson printers so I could someday run sublimation ink through it (that’s the ink that makes an iron-on transfer for embroidery) and I am SO happy with the print quality. And it’s a little quieter than my last printer, too.
I forgot to mention in the last post (oops!) that the design is from the Gift of Stitching online magazine. I’m sorry I can’t remember which issue off the top of my head, and the trash has been gathered already so I can’t look at the chart printout page.
Have a look at some art for auction on ebay…. proceeds benefit A Place to Bark animal shelter; a great cause! According to Bernie’s blog, the auction accidentally went live a bit earlier than planned, so this is just a partial listing.
The finalists for the 2007 Softie Awards have been posted. There are some fabulous (and some not so fabulous) entries… worth a look!
And finally, thank you for taking the time to send emails and post comments! I read each one, and respond to as many as I can… what a nice community of crafty/stitchy bloggers we are!
