Floor Frame Photo?     Reply with quote  
 
 
8:16 pm Nov 16, 2009

I know that I saw a photo in one of the forums of a floor stand/frame that someone's industrious husband had made for them. My Sweety is asking what I want for Christmas, and I'm (of course) requesting a floor stand frame (as I've never had one), and I wanted to show him the picture on the website to give him an idea. He is quite handy and might be able to make one as well.

Problem is, when I went looking back through the forums I thought I had read, I can't find it. Will whoever submitted that please either direct me to where I can see the photo, or reattach it here? Sorry for the trouble.

It may have been mine Pam, which I made with my father-in-law, in which case you can see pictures in this post:

Or it may have been someone else's - there are several talented people on this forum! Wink

Alanna,
It was yours!!! Thanks a lot. And, my mistake, YOU made this (with your father-in-law), so give credit where it's due. This is absolutely awesome, and yes, I had envy when I saw it as well. I wanted to show it to my hubby while the idea is fresh in his mind Laughing

And I think I've figured out that DH means "dear hubby"?? I'm still new to the blog lingo (frogs, confetti, etc.), but it is starting to click.

How are you enjoying the stand? Are you still parking? I've never tried that and may not after reading some of the comments. Can't wait to get started on my big SQ after finishing kids' Christmas stockings.

Thanks!
Pam

Frogging means unpicking - because you have to rip it, rip it (fell on the floor laughing when I heard about that one). Laughing
We talk about confetti a lot because so many of Meredith's charts have one stitch here, one stitch there in a colour, so it sometimes looks like a pile of confetti on the floor (or pointillism, if you're art-inclined).
I refer to my partner as my OH, or other half, because he's not better than I am, but he does 'complete me'...where's the sick bucket? Laughing Some people refer to their husbands/whatevers as their BH - better half.
Hope that helps.
Very Happy

And sometimes, depending on the circumstances, DH also stands for something that rhymes with Sick Bed Smile

I had a link to a good stitcher/internet jargon lexicon once - wonder where that was...?

One of my secret resources to understanding the lingo and Americanisms on this forum is a little website called Urban Dictionary, however it can be a little judgemental at times, for example, its definition of DH:

"On on-line discussion groups, abbreviation for "dear hubby." Less common: "dear husband," "dearest h*," "darling h*."
Frequent users include SAHMs, Christians; any group with the right combination of insecurity, self-righteousness, and poor education.
Often inexplicably used with an insult, usually cutesy: "my DH is a nice man, but ugly as a shaved kitten." Tends to be near emoticons, LOL and its various permutations, capitalisation-free text, and spelling errors.
Also seen, possibly thanks to the irritation of being referred to as a DH, is XH -- "ex-hubby."

So you sort of have to take it with a grain of salt. Shocked

I'm a Catholic, so maybe I would fall into the lowest of the low categories according to this dictionary! Shocked Not sure whether to laugh or cry at their definition. I think I'll laugh--at least it's more fun. Wow. Hard to believe.

A bit old-fashioned, that's me...I just refer to the spouse as himself, or the old fella! The Brit in me won't allow me to call him hubby, without cracking up laughing, and better-half implies that I consider myself inferior (perish the thought!!)to him. He's a long-suffering cutie, and not too much of a dinosaur Laughing What we don't know, of course, is how they refer to US to their mates Shocked
Very large pinches of salt needed, most definitely.

All I can say is OMG! Who knew what I was getting into? I must say that I thought the Urban Dictionary thing was a joke at first, but it seems to not be Shocked

So I was a little close with the DH (and Rifestitch, I cracked up at that one--although a little on the harsh side as well). But thanks for the belly laugh, all.

The frog is hilarious, also. By the way, finished my "frogging" last night! Yeah!!! Waiting on the replacement thread to come in the mail. Of course it wasn't DMC or any other commonly used color--made specifically for their designs. But I do believe they are replacing it for free (even though my mistake), which is hard to believe. But they haven't asked for a credit card yet, so we will see...May be waiting til next Christmas on that one (possibly naive of me to think it is free).

And as for me, Christian Protestant, my "DH" stands for Dear Hubby, as I like the ring of it and it suits him. He is really a Dear, and I'm lucky to have him Wink
