Hi, and thanks for your feedback!

I'm currently winding up some more server updates for future growth of the program and help handling the increased usage.

Once I finish these internal changes I'll be back to program updates.  One long-awaited feature will be the ability to do final pattern editing before printing.

There will also be an ability to save your work so you could get your settings the way you like and save them.  Then you could come back at a later date, load your settings from before, possibly make further changes, create a new pattern, and save the new settings if you like.  Time will tell if there will be limits to the number of saved "work" files.  I think this will fill the needs you mentioned.

I'll know more about when a bunch of new features will begin rolling out as soon as I finish the system upgrades but rest assured, I'm working on it on our end.


Morning Melanie,

Thanks for the compliments. No worries with when you get back to me. I too will be busy for the next few days~~4 to be exact~~but, not in a fun way. Nope, I have to go back to work which is a 4 on & 4 off weekly drudgery. I work nights and on work days/nights I have no time for fun things like beading or embroidery. Frown I will be going to bed soon for my "work nap", I get up every work day at 2pm. I live 50 miles from work, so I get very little sleep ont the 4 work days. Bummer, but we like to eat & I love to spend money on my craft fetishes. Smile

I can work in square stitch too, was the first stitch I learned when I first started beading at the age of 19 a ton of yrs ago. At the time I couldn't afford a loom or good beads. I had to buy the cheap beads from the 5 & 10 variety store in the small town I grew up in. I used white cotton thread from my Mom's sewing stash. It was a bear to keep from knotting up every other line of beading. During those early beading yrs I developed my own way of picking up a whole line of beads and sewing them down 2 at a time in my own square stitch way. I don't have any diagrams of the technique and haven't worked in that style in over 25 yrs or more. My reason for creating my style of picking up a line of beads at a time was I hated picking up one bead at a time back then. Now it doesn't bother me to pick one at a time. And I loved being able to cut the beaded projects and not losing all the beads too.  Had to do that a time or two when some bead color kept bugging me til I went back and cut the line it was in out and corrected it. That was why I never learned how to loom bead back then even tho after I married my hubby bought me a simple Native American style loom. He and our son used it, but I stayed away from it. Now I have 4 looms I bought especially for loom beading. Do I have time to work on all of them at one time? Not a chance!! Tongue Out

The bead in the center of the star is a piece of turquoise in a sort of teardrop shape. It a piece, from some left over I bought yrs ago for use in past beading projects. The pieces in the loop are a few more like it along with turquoise colored 11/0 Delica beads.

Thanks for the offer in helping with PDFs. When I have time to get back to creating future projects I will let you know if I run into problems. I'm not very experienced in the beading program, but as I use them I am getting better.

Gotta' go, have a few things to do before I turn in for my nap. Have a great day and I will be back in a few days. And YAY I only have 45 more lines to go on the vulture loomed background to finish. Then I can begin the tedious part I hate most~~those 311 warp strings!! Just one reason I don't like loom beading. Undecided


Welcome! Smile

If you're creating a graph from an image using the freePatternWizard, you can opt to make your pattern as a written pattern, rather than a graph only.

If you're talking about an already-made graph, I'm sorry to say the freePatternWizard can only work from images, not from already-created graphs.


Thank you Smiley

I made the pattern september 25th, so it's a little while ago. Finished doing the item recently and thought I would report it. 

Just let me know if you need the pdf.

Thanks Smiley


Welcome!  Smile  So glad you found us, and please thank whoever told you about us on our behalf!  Kiss

LOL, a housekeeper sounds great in theory...but expensive in reality.  Perhaps what is needed here is a clone.  Wink  Or, as someone I used to know once wrote, a wife!  Laughing

Washington State!  That's a place I've always wanted to visit.  I've only been as close as Oregon, long ago.  Loved Oregon, so beautiful!  And Washington sounds even lovelier.  Kiss

How exciting to have lived overseas!  Did you see a lot of Europe when you lived in Germany?

Feel free to share pictures of your work so we can all drool!  Wink
