SEW FINE 2.....

Dare I say it....
....I've been 'horsing around'
.....with some more of the
Ingalls stitcheries
for you...
....before you
comment about
the horseshoes, yes they
were originally printed the
other way up, but .....
.....I have always been
led to believe
the luck will run out
of them if pointing down!
Horse and  Tack
Either way up, I hope
you like them.

Happy crafting,  Jenny :)

How do you
manage your emails.... you have heaps
and heaps of folders, or
do you keep your
stored emails to 
a minimum?
At the start of
each month, I make
a new Folder for
it (the Month)...

Any correspondence
that I want to answer 
later, or read again, goes
into it.

I then regularly
open the Folder to
check what needs doing, and
at the end of the Month, I
reply to any unanswered mail, or
transfer it to a
new Folder for the
next new month, and delete the
old one.
How does your Inbox

Happy crafting,  Jenny  :)

Yes, folks.....FREEBIES  :)

Have you seen the J.F. Ingalls Collection of embroidery designs?

They were posted by John Governale, from images believed to be more than 120 years old.  The J.F Ingalls pattern catalog is dated 1886.

I've been trying to
work with the designs, so that I can show them to you here.

I plan to post different ones
from time to time.
To save them, right click the
one you want, then
either save, or copy image to
your computer, and
use how you wish  :)

 I hope you have fun with them.
Let me know
how you use them.... doilies,
runners, etc.,
and if you would like
to see more  :)

These images are public domain, so I am assuming it is ok to do this.  If not, apologies, and please let me know.  Thank you.

Happy crafting,  Jenny

Where oh where has my pattern line gone....

How do you mark your
stitcheries onto fabric?

I like my
'purple marker' which 
fades away with time, or
with water....
The only draw back, is it
also fades with the not the
best with the
muggy temps we have
been getting  :) you can see, it has
also done nothing to improve
my photography  :)

Happy crafting,  Jenny
