Hello, I'm new to the forum..

by spudger » Thu Feb 23, 2017 3:42 pm

Hi, I have had a love of sewing and crafting for many years. I started quilting in 1999 and diversified into other sewing crafts throughout the years. Having completed many cross-stitch projects I have recently found Hardanger. I have completed a couple of samples but nothing as a project just odd stitches which I found in a book. However, last week I came across a beautiful project 'A Hardanger Christmas House with layered cross-stitch'. I couldn't find a pattern or anything about it. Then I came across this wonderful forum and low and behold, I found all the information I needed. I immediately went to Amazon and purchased the book. So I am waiting impatiently now for it to be delivered. Anyway, I wanted to say thank you for your enthusiasm and freedom of information you give.
:whoop:

Many Thanks
Spudger

Hello from a fellow quilter! I learned to cross stitch first and then took up quilting, so does that make us opposite twinsies? Welcome and happy stitching.

:wave: Hi Spudger and Welcome from me too I am delighted that you have joined us and have 'discovered' hardanger as well. I suggest you look at Mabel's Fancies and at her posts on here. So far we have had 2 year long monthly SAL's learning new stitches etc.
Great that you have found the book of the chart you want to do, in fact I think someone on here was doing that late last year. :)

Thank you all for a warm welcome. I will post some photos to the forum, but where would you suggest as I do not want to post to the wrong place. Also do you change your photos into 72 dpi and under a certain kb. I have been unable to upload an avatar as I cannot get it small enough even through using a well known photo editing suite. (9kb 80 x80 pixels) how does anyone else do it.?

Anyway apart from all that thank you for the welcome.

This thread, Posting Pictures into a Thread explains how to do this. I use Photobucket and rarely have a problem, but other members have had lots of different issues with it and there are other photo websites that are used. Flickr.

The Stitch-A-Long section is where we generally post pictures of projects. How many threads you want is up to you. Some members have one ongoing thread for all projects. Some create a new thread for each project. Some will use a combination. Its up to you.

This thread, How do you change your avatar? explains how to create and load an avatar if you don't want to use one of the forum options.

Hope this helps.

Hi Serinde
Thank you for such a wonderful welcome. Don't worry it's just as wet down south and will probably be wetter still when we get to Wales next week.
I don't know about being a Hardangerista as I have only just started but am thoroughly enjoying it.
Keep safe (ref Storm Doris although by now it has passed and you are left with the results)
