I posted one FREE quilting book for Kindle for today...grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

I posted five FREE soap making books for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

A really good way to make custom monograms is using Microsoft Word.  I designed some monograms for my wedding that way. I used this tutorial and they turned out pretty nice:

You can find tons of free pretty fonts that are licensed for personal use. I would find one you like and design your monogram, then save the image as a .jpg or .png and run it through the graph maker here.  Good luck!

Sherry,

You're right, it doesn't seem like work.  The only reason I just want it to be done, though, is because I want to play!  So many ideas to try.  I want to get to them and be done with the dishcloths already!

I'm now 3 down on set #2.  One more to go, then am more than 1/3 of the way done with all of the dishcloths.  Smile

Hope your granddaughter's labor is very short-lasting!  Kiss
