Is jobelen less stretchy than laguna? I noticed the stretchiness of the laguna fabric when I was lacing my finished project. Maybe I'm lacing too tightly? I've not had a problem with aida, though.
Ah well, a perfect night for insomnia....
Yesterday my husband and I went to his specialist ti see why he has had some pain in his stomach. After a few tests they have found a 4 cm cancer growth in his intestine which they are going to remove. After going almost 10 years clear from his first tumour it has come as a shock to us and I don't know if I can stay strong this time for him (although I intend to try). I just feel completely lost and bewildered this time as I had thought we had beaten the beast but apparently not. So here we go again - another round of surgery and chemo and probably radiography. Sorry I'm just venting my frustration and stress to everyone to try and relieve my feelings..
On the guide, DMC 814 & DMC 3371 are both indicated under the same symbol on the chart. Is this a mistake? There is a + symbol next to the 814. The 814 is a deep red color. The + symbol appears on the face and neck, yet the photo of the sign looks like all of the stitches are a flesh peach color. How do I stitch this? I've looked everywhere to see if they explain why two colors would have the same symbol in the guide and what the + means. I hope this makes sense.
Hello. I'm interested in purchasing this product, as well as Sweet Little Mermaid #2 (sku:13895) & #5 (sku: 13851). I see that this package includes the threading that I will need, but does it include the cloth/fabric I would need to stitch on? If it does not, could you please guide me to which cloth/fabric would be best to use.
Hi! This is my first time purchasing and posting on this site. I just recently got back into cross stitch. I ordered a bunch of floss and fabric last Thursday. About how long does it take to ship? It keeps saying not shipped yet when I check my order. Finishing up one and wanted to start the next one. Hoping it arrives soon!! Thanks!!!
Does anyone know if the small extenders are still available? I have the 3" extenders, but I'm looking for more of the very small extenders that fit into 2 empty tubes. I have only 4 and have used them regularly when I need to combine items to make for the proper size frame for my work. I'd like 4 more, if I can get them. Any ideas? They must have come with a previous kit, when I bought all the sizes and extensions way back when I first began using Q-Snaps, but I've not seen them since.
Is there just a chart for this pattern? This is beautiful, but the kit is too pricey for me. Thanks
Are the directions included for finishing the ornament to look like the picture?
Series 1 states only full cross stitches are used. Could you tell me if only full stitches are used for series 2 and 3 patterns. Also can Mill Hill beads be easily incorporated into any of the series patterns?
I recently posted a message about finding a bigger that 8 x 10 Loran magnetic board. I did find one that was 12 x 18 but it wasn't what I expected. The size was 12 inches high x 18 inches long. I thought it was the other way around, 12 inches long and 18 inches high. It was too heavy to put on the folding stand. Unfortunately I have to return it. I was thinking about a magnetic dry erase board but not sure if they would hold up on the folding stand. They might be too heavy. Does anyone know if it will hold up on the stand or anything else I could try?
Hi is there a way to search for patterns by number of colors in the project? I enjoy doing the projects with a low number of colors (like under 15 colors)
Turned out taking something to work on was a good idea. It helped keep me from losing my charming demeanor after dealing with the less than helpful people at Jet Blue. 5 hours at the Nantucket airport.....we could have taken the ferry to Hyannis, the bus to Boston, and gotten there sooner.
This is in booklet form, which I do not like. Before I order more, I will need to find out in what form it is sent. Also, the symbols are on there as to what colors to use but now what stitch to use. Confusing!
How do you wash a cross stitch project?
