Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

Melanie,

I actually hated the deer statue at first.. Thomas salvaged it from my grandmothers apartment when she died.. I really hated the thing.. He got 2 small ones too..
But when he got me the vases I thought that the stupid deer thing would fit with them, so I tried it out, and now I love the deer. I actually named it. His name is Greg the deer Tongue Out haha

The clock is actually not built into the wall, but it has a sticky foam base which (if you have not guessed it by now) you stick to the wall - and voila - floating clock on the wall.. I'll take a picture that shows it better some day Tongue Out


I am soooo bad at making lists.. Mostly because I get annoyed after some time and go buy the things on it anyway.. I am really impatient.. Yell 


Oooooh creeper.. Laughing We call them skateboards which confuse most people since it is NOT a skatebord.. Tongue Out I'll call it a creeper from now on to see how many people I can confuse Innocent

Hardware store for the win.. Laughing Mine has never bought me anything for my creative stuff.. I do that my selv, because he stands there like an idiot.. Tongue Out I asked for tunesian crochet hooks, he came back with knitting needles with a cable between Yell 


BTW - we need more emoticons here.. Smile

Sandy,

Welcome!  Smile  So nice to put a face to the words!  Smile

Thank you so much, and glad you like our site.  Smile

I've upgraded you to the 300 stitches, so you can now make those graphghans!

Have you tried the Stitchboard Basic Palette for your patterns?  I know the color choices are much fewer and don't look quite as nice, but the problem with the full palette is that there are just too many colors for yarns.  Sadly, yarn manufacturers don't have the capacity to go with larger palettes, as they'd never sell a lot of colors that way.  This is why we ultimately created the basic palette, to allow for the limited numbers of colors in yarns.  Smile

Anyway, enjoy and feel free to post pictures of your work so we can drool!  Wink

Ginger,

Welcome!  Smile

My suggestion would be to do a bit of math.  From what I can see in the photo, your graph is 24 blocks high, so 5 rows for each block should get you to 120.

I can't tell what the width is, but even if you can't get an exact corresponding measurement, what you need to do is divide 150 by the number of blocks across in the design; if it's, say, 150 divided by 50, that will be 3 stitches per block.  Your design may distort...but my guess is that if it does, it won't be terrible.  The problem with crochet stitches is that they're not square.  Also, since you're trying to go by strict measurements, you may find the width and the length as converted over to stitches may change the shapes a bit.

The snowflake and moon would be much more difficult.  Since they're not designs that fit into square stitches, you can do one of two things...change the size so they can be blocked into perfect squares, or do a little embroidery on the half or fractional stitches after.  Either way is acceptable.  I once saw a gorgeous crocheted banner of a dove, and the artist had fudged the design by doing embroidery for the otherwise "fractional" stitches that couldn't be done in crochet.  And it looked beautiful!  IMO, the embroidery didn't take anything away from it.

Good luck!  Let us know how it turns out.

Michelle,

Welcome!  Smile

So glad you found us!  And it's nice to hear that the freePatternWizard could be of help to you...this is why we created it, for people like you!  Kiss

Congrats on your success in the local shows...that sounds like so much fun!  I don't believe there's anything in our local area, so I'll have to live vicariously through you...please do tell!  Smile

Can't wait to see your pics...you can put them in messages here, or in our Photo Albums (from the top menu, go to "Social" and choose "member photo albums" from the choices).

I have a special place in my heart for cross stitchers (I cross stitched for years!) and an even more special place in my heart for anyone self-taught, as I'm self-taught, too!  Smile  I think it's even more fun than taking a class.  You would have access to what I used to have to spend oodles of money to buy...those lovely cross stitch magagazines out of the UK!  Kiss  The American magazines are very nice, but in the UK, magazines are an art in and of themselves.  I can't begin to count the number of amazing projects I made from them; matter of fact, if you check out my photo albums, you'll see a lot of those wonderful cover kits.  Smile

Look forward to more wonderful discussions with you about cross stitching!  Kiss
