New Stash/Chart Help

Now I was only supposed to go to Sewandso and order two gast threads that I needed but this pretty tan evenweave and cute Trilogy chart just seemed to find its way into my basket. I then received an email from creative fabrics so I just had to go over there to check it out and look what I got..lol.

I have purchased quite a few times from creative fabrics there are regular sales ,discount codes , quality fabric and first class service. http://www.creative-fabrics.co.uk/

I have finished stitching my valentine freebie from the sisterhood and kitted up another four or five freebies to keep me busy. I am also working on my own small freebie design, which I just drew on squared paper. If I wanted to display the chart on my blog can someone tell me please how I can do that.

I am also trying to trace this Love chart that I stitched for an exchange quite a few years ago. My print-off is a bit worse for wear now and I would like to re-stitch the chart for myself. It says on my copy that it was a freebie from kreinik but I know it wasn;t the kreinik site that I originally printed it from and on checking the current site and trying google I just can't trace the chart. I'm hoping someone out there recognises it and can tell me where the chart is. Hugs!

If you have a scanner, I would scan the chart that you are creating on the squared paper into your computer as either a PDF (adobe reader) file or a jpeg file. The jpeg will be a lot bigger and may not print out very well, but either way, you would load it the same as a photo. I am not sure how to load a pdf chart though.

Hope this helps on one of your questions!

Great fabrics you have purchased. Like the Love design you are searching, that is new to me.

Beautiful stash - such vibrant colors!

Probably the easiest way to load an image of your chart is to either scan or take a clear picture of it and load it as a regular picture. Most imaging software allows you to resize so it won't print giant. I've never successfully created a .pdf, and I when I shared some of my charts, I had a very complicated system that I would not recommend to anyone!

I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labor!
