Image of project posted


Thanks to all who emailed with suggestions of places to post pics of
projects. I only had one currently on the hard drive, so I loaded it in
as an experiment. I hope to scan in others to share soon. Hope the
link copies into email OK...

's the folder "drbarb03."
This is a small project - took 1-2 hours of stitching - and I
incorporated it into a card which I gave to a friend at her baby shower
a couple of weeks ago. Cross-stitch can be so versatile! I couldn't
find a stamp I liked spur-of-the-moment, and then remembered a set of
small, cute critters in an old magazine that were charted for baby
items. The elephant was one of them.

Thanks, Barbara, you inspired me!
I have just created a folder on RCTNP, "Gillian" and have uploaded a random half-dozen pictures of some stitching. Some were done twenty years ago, and some more recently. If you think it looks OK, I will work on it some more,and post more pictures, and reduce the size of some of these.

Lovely stuff Gillian. And just so you know, you have marvelous taste because I have the little I Am Woman, I Am Invincible piece hanging on the wall just above my computer.
I'm sure you agree that great minds think alike-- LOL

My daughter has three kids, ( all involved with sports), a job and a hubby who travels a lot. She has it in her kitchen! I figured Marcella earned it! LOL

I finally decided to get with the program, too, and have loaded my stitching into webshots. Under the Community tab, at the bottom, you can type in my member name: ndjoan
The first one's kinda dark; I think I may re-scan that one. I don't have my larger pictures in there due to lack of a digital camera. I may get one soon since my 35mm just bit the concrete, literally, when I took a timed photo! And there are no camera repair places here. :(

Joan,
I like the pieces! Great work!
Question out of curiosity - what tends to distinguish 1st place work from 2nd place, 3rd, and so on? I'm curious what criteria cross-stitch is judged by at county fairs. I remember in 4-H I entered a piece. I got a blue (not hard at 4-H level), but not honor roll because the judge said that the top stitch of my Xs all went in the wrong direction (mind you they were all the SAME direction, and the direction given in the kit instructions, but she was an "upper left to lower right" person and the stitches were "upper right to lower left."). I entered another piece that did receive honor roll at the county level and went on to state, but I didn't place and received no judge's comments. Mom said that when she picked it up, a lot of people there said they thought my piece was better than one of the champion pieces. I'm not saying it was or wasn't, just never understood what criteria judges use, and would be interested to learn more!

I *THINK* it's saying that the group has collectively used 28.95 MB of an available 30 MB. This came up on one of my other Yahoo groups some time ago, which is why this comes to mind.
One of the solutions at the time was to have everyone go in and delete the full-sized versions of their pictures. When you upload pictures to a Yahoo group, it saves the original full size version that you took with your camera or scanner, and then also creates a thumbnail version of the same thing. The thumbnail takes up significantly less space and is usually more than sufficient for viewing, so deleting the full size one (which does not affect the thumbnail) will free up a lot of space quickly.
The moderator(s) of the group can also do this if members don't.

Nope, it was definitely someone called Jacqui. Fred and I have been there since the inception though. Love your stuff - having just come through a month of solid rain, the Ark looks good lol - it's great to see lots of people putting pics there.

Depends who's judging. If the judges are professionals (or at least stitchers themselves), they will judge on quality of stitching. If the judges are The Mayor, The Preacher and The Justice Of The Peace, they give first place to the biggest or the design they like most (which is usually an MLI).
We had a presentation at EGA by a couple of certified needlework judges. They had a score card "maximum of 10 points for this", "maximum of 5 points for that", so it wasn't just arbitrarily saying "this is a 98 and this is a 99", but actually adding up points for specific things. Now, whether this was their personally-created score card or something official from the Judges Association, I don't know.
