sewing machines can be programed to do that? wow! I haven't sewed in years.

my mom can embrodery but it's not right to ask her to make her own gift is it? just kidding, I wouldn't do that.

haha. You could always trick her.

 

Speaking of which, I asked my mom a long time ago to send me my great-grandma's hankie so I could get my intials emroidered in it to start a new heirloom. Grrrr...slacking mom!

I think I need DIY rehab. I'm looking up websites to see how to cross stitch. Is it hard? I can't imagine it's that hard. I saw on a website that kids do it. Hmm, maybe I can hire some kids to do mine. Say I'm volunteering at the boys & girls club & we are having arts & crafts day :)

 

I might head to michaels tonight with my 40% off coupon & get supplies.

Counted cross stitch is quite easy, but can be time consuming. You have a pattern which is your guide, some are colour coded, and you count the squares and put stitches in the right squares.

Doing words or a saying would probably go quite quickly though.

I am doing a counted cross stitch from a kit right now as a gift for the bride and groom so if you need more help ask away.

My mom taught me how to cross-stitch a long time ago - From what I remember it is pretty easy but I alway had a pattern to go by - I'm sure you could figure it out thought w/ all your DIY genius in you!

I'm printing off a coupon & heading to AC Moore. I will definitly ask you for help if I get stuck. I hoped I could find the patterns online for free. I just need to write a sentence & I want to make a picture. Something that represents our wedding.

I'd love to see a picture of your project when you are done. What are you making them?

Morgan, you can definitely cross stitch - it's very easy. I used to cross stitch as a kid and make presents for my grandparents... they still have a cross stitch on their wall that I made for my grandma without a pattern. It says I love you Grandma, but the Grandma is severely slanting down to the right. lol... I think I was was about 8 or 9.

It's a picture that goes in a frame that says "United in Love" their names, and the wedding date, with flowers and a border around it. I will definately take a picture when it's done.

It really isn't their style at all, which makes it more fun to do :)

I have my thread, needle & loom. Now I just need the hankys.

Hopefully I can do as well as you did at 8 years old. I was busy making hot pot holders then. My mom got mad because she bought us the material to make them. But then grandma offered us a nickle each, so we sold them all to grandma. She had a drawer full of them and my mom really needed some.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
