Is This My First Post Of 2012?

There's a new computer in my life and my old camera works just fine with it so I'm hoping to start blogging again, or at least post some pictures.

Since I haven't finished making anything lately, I don't have any photos to post today but thanks to Feeling Stitchy, I have a couple of links to share.  First, check out Floresita's finished alphabet. which I just love.  It's so pretty.  She's included a link to the free pattern too.  Look how her letters look perfectly centered on the fabric.  My patterns never are.  In fact, I just transferred a design on to a dishtowel and it was noticeably off to one side so I sprayed it with Resolve and washed it, and all the transfer pencil came out.  I don't know if Resolve will work with other transfer methods, (like iron-on patterns), but I've had luck with lead and transfer pencils, especially if you get the Resolve on it soon after you realize your pattern is not where you want it to be on your dish towel.

There was a link on Feeling Stitchy to Kitschy Digitals and if you haven't been there before, you need to go now.  Everything is cute and fun.  They sell printables, fonts and things for digital crafting, but I especially love their sewing and needlework patterns.  Thanks for the link, Floresita!

As I was reading through older posts on Feeling Stitchy, I realized two things:  I finally got the Sublime Stitching book (yay!)  and I bought two cute embroideries and a stitched potholder at the local antique store.  Pictures to come soon. 

Did you see the cute fox cross stitch pattern on Mollie Makes?  So many cute patterns, so little time.

Resolve is the best product EVER. Never even thought about using it on misplaced patterns. Thanks, Patty!
