Goals Challenge

In 2015, I completed the Bulletin Board Half Yearly Goals Challenge. There were 8 stitchers who won prizes in both the half yearly and yearly challenges.  I was randomly selected as the second place winner for the Half Yearly Challenge!  For the prize I was allowed to select two small charts and decided on:

2015 was my first year participating in the challenge and it was really enjoyable!  Sending out a big thanks to HAED for allowing the challenge to run and to all the admin on the BB who organized the challenge!

Metallic Thread Calculator Addition to Floss Organizer:

I’ve had several people mention about making calculations for how much metallic thread a project needs.  The current skein estimator formulas are based on the 8.7 yard DMC skein.  This means the estimator only works for DMC, not any other yardages or types/brands of thread. So I made a calculator that could be used for metallic threads and added it to the Floss Organizer Version 9.  It can be downloaded here or on the downloads tab.  I’ve also updated the User Guide for this to add information about the new calculator section.  Please see the User Guide if you have any questions.  If that doesn’t answer your question(s) please feel free to contact me or post in the comments below!

May your day be filled with sparkly thread!

  1. Congrats! Those are both great charts!

  2. Congratulations on your win. Both charts are lovely but the snowman is especially super-cute! :)

    1. Thanks! It will be fun stitching a Christmas design :D

  3. Congrats on your win!! I really really like the super cute snowman :)

  4. Congratulations on your beautiful charts.. I would very much like to participate on this Bulletin Board. How does that work? And where can I find it?

    1. Thanks! To access the BB you will need a Yuku account. There is a link at the bottom of the HAED website for the "Bulletin Board" that will take you to Yuku. Once you've joined Yuku then you can apply for access to the board! The 2016 Yearly Challenge is open for entry until 31st Jan. They also run a Half Yearly one in June :)

  5. Oh my! Those are lovely charts. Are you planning to stitch them this year?

    1. Thank you! At this stage I most likely start Lancelot & Guinevere when the Treasure Hunt crop is finished. I do want to get some finishes in! I haven't decided about the snowman... He may just come out at Christmas time for a bit each year ;)
