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.
Sooooo true! :)

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