New finish - EGA Master Craftsman Canvas #5 by Fran
Received a pass first time out on test #5 for the Canvas Embroidery Master cert! It is a completely original design of carnival masks hanging on a wall. The photo doesn't do it justice at all. I completely stitched the background first, then appliqued the two front masks onto it as I wanted them...

Stitch? and other XS Pattern-Making by cara1158
Is Stitch still in existence? I just tried to download it (from http://people.dsv.su.se/~henrikbe/stitch/) but it did not install. In fact, no installation or .exe files seem to be there at all. Are there any other cross stitch pattern-making programs that you all recommend? I have not done any...

Don't mess with knitters! by Bruce Fletcher
Old news (Jun 2012) but still worth reading. "Millions of knitting enthusiasts are furious at the U.S. Olympic Committee over a cease and desist letter, and the organization’s two attempts at an apology have only worsened the situation." http://tinyurl.com/q9cn5h4 -- Bruce Fletcher Stronsay,...

Nine months to sew one panel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veZ461c1xBQ One panel came to Orkney and I was permitted to put in a couple of stitches (under VERY close supervision!). You can see a brief account of this with a few photographs, including one of yours truly, in the monthly...

label removal update - by Cheryl Isaak
well - a combination of things is working - the duct tape thing didn't work, but I ended up scoring the label and I resprayed with goo-gone and left it in the sun. Lo and behold - lifting along the score line. It worked! I've kept at it now and I'd down to the last little bits. Not too worried...

'Tis the annual posting..... by Karen C
Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery on May 5th in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New...

I'm Baaa-aack! by Monica Ferris
After a long time away, I've decided to give RCTN another try. I write the Betsy Devonshire needlework mysteries - sixteen titles published! I'm feeling a little dry about the series, and am hoping to get refreshed hanging out here.

removing a label - on topic - sort off by Cheryl Isaak
okay - a puzzler for the chemistry types among us. Years ago I had a plastic first aid kit in the truck. It doesn't fit in the car's glove box. But dang, it's the perfect size to hold "stuff" for a travel bag. Or just to store buttons/charms etc... EXCEPT - I can not get the printed label off....
