Seeing as there has been a bit of interest generated, I’ve scanned one of my album pages to give you an example of what I do – excuse the photo on it, one of my ink cartridges needs changing, so it’s a bit pale. Anyway, hopefully it’ll come through OK … The box at the top is the same size as a ‘normal’ printed photo, so if I wanted to I could just paste in an actual photo, instead of scanning it – and I have one template page with a vertical photo format as well, then just type in the details at the relevant points. If anyone wants a copy of the actual Word document, I’m more than happy to send it to you – it’s very very simplistic, though, so you might want to play with it a bit … just drop me an email to shakatak at iinet dot net dot au and your wish will be granted 🙂
Rightio, back to my stitching, as I’m not far off my happy dance for Summer Into Autumn – I’ve finished all the actual stitching now, and just need to add the beads, so I’ll have a piccie to post before the end of the day. Then I just have to wait for the MH treasure to arrive, before working out how the heck to finish it into a bellpull … another new finishing technique for the new year 🙂
(edited to add the following Happy Dance)
Well, as promised, here’s the finished version of Summer into Autumn by The Drawn Thread – I have to admit the ‘softer’ look of the single thread suits it well. It’s not my usual style of stitching, but I really enjoyed stitching it for the variety of stitches involved, plus such a short and quick project to stitch – it took me a sum total of 9 stitching hours!
