Default Questions about 36ct fabric; plys of thread & bead size?


Maybe check for petit point patterns. IIRC, those are all stitched over
one. I know there are a lot of jewelry patterns.


Excellent idea...you know, to stitch something which was DESIGNED to be stitched 1 over 1. I'm somewhat concerned that never crossed my mind.

I am *so* close to finishing my Victorian
house...about a 3"x3" area left. I can be patient.


Did you finish? I'd love to see it!

I've been a bit delayed on my Maple Leaf as we had some storm damage in our yard over here (windstorm which took down a big tree). Now it's Halloween and I'm going trick or treating with my 6 yr old tonight. He doesn't care how cold it is, he wants to run around the neighborhood for 3+ hours while I drag my disabled arse behind him. That should knock me out for a week...but he'll share some of his candy with me as a consolation prize.

LOLOL!!!

No, still have probably another week before it's done...down to about a
2x2 area now. I only get to stitch on it for maybe a 1/2 hour each day.

Haven't the winds been *awful* this year??? Making up for the lack of
winds last year, I guess!

Now it's Halloween and I'm going trick or treating with my 6 yr old tonight.

I miss those days!!! We live out in the country and haven't had any
t-or-t'rs for about 5 years, since the one family's kids got too old.
We have one family with 3 kids about a mile away but they usually go
into the nearest town to do it with their friends. Enjoy it while you
can!!!!

If worries can cure your sickness, prolong your life, or replace
happiness, then go ahead and worry! If they can't, why worry?

Enjoy every moment of your life...there is no second chance.
