NationalStitching Day     Reply with quote  
 
 
9:23 am Feb 07, 2009

Today is National Stitching Day for the EGA (emboridery guild of America.) All over the USA and Canada we are stitching in public. A group of us here in our Sand Dunes chapter will be going to Barnes and NOble (book Store) and doing a stitch-in for 4 hours. I will take my large Fractal. It is rather spectacular. I am working on page 14 of 28..Half way there. Not bad for 3 years.I will take some pictures later. One of our members is flying back from vacation today,so she said she would stitch in three airports
and in the air, before she gets home. Stitching

Wow, what a great idea! I wish we had something like that! It sounds like great fun (and I DO want a photo of your fractal, Patricia!). We have a fair/show kind of thing here that has a craft section in it, maybe I'll enter my dragon this year...? Rolling Eyes

I don't know how others do theirs but the way I do is:

1) take your photo, load to your computer ( usually in a folder " my Pictures")

2) Resize the photo to make it smaller ( I use "Windows resizer" that I downloaded onto my computer but Photobucket.com also has this option)

3) Load the " small" version of your photo into your photosharing site ( for me that's Photobucket)

4)Then click on the link under the photo that begins with [img]... and ends in [/img] and "Copy" it..

5)then come to SQ, open a window and "Paste" the link that you copied into the thread...

6)Press " preview" to check that it went ok... ( your should be seeing your photo)
if not, something is wrong. re check your steps and if it's still wrong yell for help in this direction Wink

7) if all looks good, press " submit" and et volia !

Hope that helps and we would LOVE to see photos !
