Hola Mi Amigo!



I was trying to decide which Just Inklined digi to show case this week and came across Mexico Phil. I love this guy!!! His mustache is SLAMMIN'! I decided to pull out my scrap box and be thrifty for a while so I have no clue which companies they came from...sorry. My "creative consultant" gave me the idea for the tumbleweed, how cool is that? I added some hand stitching to the top right corner. I wanted to let you all in on my secret for keeping my stitches so straight. In the needle point center of your craft store they have these "grate thingies" (really don't know what they call it...SEE BELOW for pic). The little squares are the perfect distance apart. Just put it down on your paper where you want to stitch and put pencil dot marks where you want the stitching. Easy peasy!! I am not a sewer so if I can do it, I know you can. Lol

This is so much fun. I love his mustache too and the tumbleweed. BTW, the "grate thingie" :) is called plastic canvas.
Hugs!

Hola Mia Amigo, marvelous stitching and your creative consultant was so very right in suggesting the tumbleweed. I should have asked the Conway Tidwells for assistance last night instead of the Charleston Tidwells! Love it Jen makes me want Burro Locco for lunch!

thanks for the 'grate' tip!
As for your 'consultant'-- he's quite the talent, isn't he?

Shirley said...

LOL over this one Jeni. I'm with you on the mustache. Thanks for the tip on the plastic canvas as a guide for hand stitching. Worked like a charm here. Oh and your Craft Consultant deserves a bonus over the tumbleweed idea.

civic car utilize a small four cylinder engine for power production. This means that for naturally aspirated applications(no forced induction) you do not need piping any larger than 2.25 inches. If you go any larger you will notice a decrease in bottom end power. Larger piping is like taking the nozzle off of the water hose. Higher exhaust flow, but decreased velocity.
