The Latest Chit Chat

I have always worked on the kitchen table. Since I live alone that is no problem. I eat all my meals in the living room and all my sewing in the kitchen. I tried working off stands but the several I tried were too flimsy. I had a square table and laid my pattern on the left my frame in the middle and my tools on the right all side by side. Now have a round table and can't do this. Guess I will have to find a small square table and work in the living room though I see trouble coming with tv on.
I just got a huge knot in one of my parked threads. O_O So after unknotting the tangled mess, I decided I probably needed a needle minder, so I made one of my own. I didn't make the design on the front, I used a hot glue gun to adhere a magnet onto the back of it.
Good morning Troy - I saw your answer to jenorma2 about putting the calculator on the pattern pages but for the life of me I can't find it. I would prefer it be with the fabric pages so I don't have to keep switching back and forth. I do love the new format of this website and congratulate you for all the very hard work that you all put into it. Thanks so much. cheryl
Thinking about purchasing this and want to be sure it's counted cross stitch and not stamped. Thanks.
I just noticed that they misspelled Australia in this pattern :(. I see how I could fix it but not sure I can take it out without messing all the stuff around it. I jumped around a bit in that section when it did it a month ago.
A year or two ago, someone posted they were traveling and stitchers came up with shops that were near the town she was headed. So, i would like to know what if any shops near northern California-ish. I use to go to a quaint shop in St. Charles, Mo. (it's gone now) but when I google search shops, the closed ones still show up. Any help would be appreciated. I really miss the old fashion, touch and buy shopping experience.
I am wondering the same thing since the supplies does not show we can buy the garden gloves to stitch directly onto?
The only good thing about a rainy Memorial Day forecast is that I get to cross stitch more! Normally, I would work on my flower gardens but with the rain coming I think I will work on my cross stitch flowers instead! A rainy three day weekend is better than a rainy day at the office! Jacquie
Thanks Kristie for your help this week. I know you have been busy ironing out teething problems with the new site. When I tried to go to the payment site the system would not go there - must have had gremlins in my system again! I have new placed the order for the kits and have five months to complete the wedding sampler. We travel hopefully. I like the new site and look forward to many more purchases ion the future (as if I needed any more patterns)!!
Is it possible to get charts in pdf download.
Does anybody know of a way you can delete multiple items from your wish list? I accidentally clicked on adding all the supplies and now I have 40 different colors of floss listed that I would like gone. Thanks all.
Im new to crossstitch, I was wondering if there are canvases that have the picture printed on the canvas to stitch over?
Hello everyone :) By now, you know that we have redesigned and reformatted our website...yay!! It's been a long process in the works and this update stemmed from having to keep up with all of the ever changing ways of technology. In order for our platform (website) to work on mobile devices, tablets, etc....we had to reformat everything and in doing that, we made some much needed updates to things on here. Now, please keep in mind that we are still working on things. We never know what is going to actually work on the new website until we "roll it live" so we are slowly finding things that we need to fix, replace, add, etc...but we would love your input on the new website as a whole. What do you like, what do you not like, what would like to see added or taken away or even done differently?! Now that the new format is out and done, we can now work on the other things that make our website great for you all :) So, post away and let us know your thoughts, opinions and ideas. I am taking all of your posts to the powers that be and we are going to have a meeting about everything. So please know that all of your posts will be chatted about and taken into consideration. While we won't be able to please everyone and do everything that gets mentioned, we are going to do best to make it happen for ya :) Thank you all so much in advance for participating and for being patient with us as we are tackling this new format. ~Kristi @ ECS
Love seeing that little calculator icon in all the needed places. Thanks for listening to us. Love this new website - so user friendly on older eyes. Have a great day. cheryl
In light of the recent tragedy in Manchester England where 22 people including children have lost their lives, my heart is breaking! So very sad that a night of fun and for some their first concert had to end in such tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been affected by this horrific crime. May those who lost their lives rest in peace and may their families find comfort in the loving arms of God and their family and friends at this very difficult time. With deepest sympathy, Jacquie
