One of my chart packs is a group of Jewish-themed designs,
two framed pieces and an insert for a square Sudbury box.

If you're interested, email me and I'd be happy to email
you back pictures of the three designs included. My email
on this post is unmunged.

I also had a design for a driedl gift bag published in Just
Cross Stitch years ago. I can look up the issue month
and year if anyone is interested in tracking down a copy.
I did another large driedl gift bag too that wasn't  
included in the magazine, but I could probably dig up
the particulars from my archives.

Yeah, I noticed the original post was from 2001, but
since the follow up request was current, what the heck.

Usenet and rctn need all the help it can get regardless
of how old the posts are. ;)

I think I remember a design of a menorah or some other Jewish design in  
JCS, too.  I can look through my old issues if you'd like.

Okay, I dragged out my binder with my original copies of
my designs and the driedl gift bag was in the December 2002

I also did a series of coaster patterns that had used
old CDs (you know, the kind that AOL used to send out or
ones that got zorched when you made backups?) as a filler
inside to give them some heft. Cross Stitcher magazine
bought first publication rights for several of the series  
including one that was a menorah for Hannukah. Instead of
putting the design (and a couple of others) they offered
the patterns for them for download on their website.  
I was not happy with that since they bought *first
publication rights* which isn't multiple download
rights. They are now out of business. :P~~~~ to 'em!

So unfortunately, I can't point people to a back issue
for that one. Bummer.

I've considered reformatting some of my designs into
downloadable PDF format and offering them for download
somewhere, but so far haven't had the motivation to look
into possible *where* to put 'em or if there would be
enough interest from the stitching public to do so.

Ideas, anyone?

I still have a landline and no cell phone. I still get the
annoying calls from lying telemarketers claiming that someone
in my household has indicated they have an interest in (fill
in the blank) service or from someone claiming they're from
Microsoft and have detected a problem with my Windows computer...
and I use Linux.

Annoying, but I don't have caller ID and have elderly neighbors
in poor health, so can't afford NOT to answer the phone in
case it's one of them with an problem or emergency and they
need my help with something.

Nyssa, who actually did publish several Judaica designs way
back when
