Oh, yes, nature walks are absolutely the best!  Kiss  Perfect photo opportunities!  Kiss

Ouch, that sounds sooo painful...I'm very sorry long distance walking is too difficult.  Cry  Though shorter walks can be nice.  Kiss  Glad you have a car, though, and that your boyfriend drives you around as needed.  Kiss

Which I hope includes yarn shops!  Wink

I think we can both're not in the house of your dreams either.  It's bittersweet, isn't it?  It's not the worst place...just a little "off" from that dream home.

Thank you for the lovely wishes and hoping the same for you, too.  Kiss  Guess we both need to have will happen eventually!  Smile  Meanwhile, sending all good thoughts your way.  Kiss


Hi, sorry for my late response, as we're in the middle of moving and aren't online much through about the end of the month.  Frown

To answer your question, you can make a blank pattern by uploading a white jpg to the freePatternWizard and choosing to make the finished pattern "colors only" (on screen).  Save out the file and you'll have a blank grid.  Smile

Alternately, if you've got a digital image of what you want to turn into a pattern, you can also upload it through the freePatternWizard yourself.  Smile

i Have a blanket i want to make and add a name to the picture. How do I do that?
thanks for the help!!

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.)

Here's the circle (you must join to see posts):

* I'm not sure if the book on Kanzashi fabric flowers is a sewing book, so that may very well be one sewing and one quilting book.

Ugh, the specialty yarns. I seriously can"t think of anything they would be much use for, except maybe to trim something. Undecided

Hahahaha, rectal-cranial inversion. Laughing Same for Micheals I think.

I recently discovered a Micheals at a shopping center closer to me and made a stop in it. Sheesh, what a disappointment, 2 half walls of yarn. Most of the space was taken up with things that aren't even crafts, more home decor. Tongue Out Pots and pans would be a closer match IMHO.

My friend who spins has told me of a lady she knows who collects the hair shed by animals at a refuge and spins it into yarn, then donates the proceeds to the refuge.
I'm hoping that she's vending at the festival, that would be interesting. Wink

I promise to get some pics of the scarf before I give it away.
One thing I'm thinking on is the eyes. The pattern calls for felt eyes, but I'm thinking of doing my painted eyeballs. Need to look up pictures of lizard eyes.
