Hi ladies can I ask why Deb did you rip the letters out over 2? Does over one give a better result, and are you using 1 or 2 threads, I’m about to do some lettering in a hawk run hollow chart so just interested to know. Thanks, Mel.

I changed my lettering to over one because I not only love the look but, I need my finished piece to be a certain size to finish it the way I think I want to.
I always use one thread while stitching over one.
Hope you have a great week Mel!
I don't know where to begin. The fabric section was awesome. It helped me understand all the names that stitchers use for their fabric. Then the gadget section was great. I enjoyed so many new-to-me items. I am going to buy the small caddy because I only stitch at home. Don't go oit due to disability. Then I just can't forget the fun with your laughter and finesse around projects. Glad to see you and share time with you.
Patricia, check the description box, there is a sale on the caddies😉. I certainly can understand your incapacity. In 2001 I went from a full life to one where I was unable to walk without a brace or assistance due to multiple spinal surgeries when one failed.
Perhaps you can meet up with some ladies who might join you at your home to stitch. The one thing I am grateful to God for is the love I have of needlework , it makes spending long periods of alone time purposeful and fulfilling.
Meeting Deb was an answer to prayer, my husband and I had to move from IL (where we had moved to in 2003) back to PA because of my medical condition and needs. We had been gone for 6 years and it was as if we were beginning in a completely new location. Deb and I have been friends since 6 mo after we returned.
Thanks for joining us and I am so glad we can spend time with you! Be sure you are subscribed and thanks for watching! LIZ💕
Congrats to Deb & family on keeping Hank and all the ribbons! The “Stitch Every Day” is looking lovely! Liz’s finished “Relax” piece on the project bag, so beautiful! 😍 Love both of your homework, so pretty!
Amazon has them, the info was in the description box of the video when we first shared it on Gadget Corner...first video in July.(you would like it...check it out if you haven’t seen it!). In the mean time...https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_5?k=folca+pill+box&sprefix=folca&crid=2F2V86W1JZ0E5
That will get you there! Thanks for watching and be sure to subscribe! LIZ💕
Hi, the lamp we use is linked in the description box to the video! We put a great deal of info there for reference if you are ever searching for something. The light is by EDMUNDS and called an led magnifier battery powered portable light. (Use some of all of those descriptors) Try searching with google if you don’t want to check out the links in the box.
Thanks for watching !☺️LIZ
Great, informative video, as usual! Liz was talking about starting your stitching to the left of the vertical thread and below the horizontal thread. I always start there because it's a good way to catch your mistakes. If you are stitching along and notice you aren't bringing your needle up through your fabric to the left of a vertical thread, you've made a counting mistake -- most likely going over 3 threads instead of two. I also have a question I've never heard anyone talk about on Flosstube. I learned to always have my selvege on the left (or right) of my fabric and not on the top or bottom. It has something to do with the weft, I believe. I notice my X's don't look as even on some fabrics if I don't have the selvege on the side. What do you know about the proper way to hold your fabric when stitching? And lastly, I'm really glad Hank is back home!
Hi Ladies! Liz, I am the same way. I need my long magnet and move down the chart. I think I will take your idea of checking off the row that I have stitch. Such a great idea! Thank you for sharing ladies. :)
Happy for Hank. Is Hank a steer or a bull? I was raised on a farm/ranch in Oklahoma. A bull can become aggressive. Liz, I’m with you. I use a magnetic board with a magnetic ruler. Even if I’m Stitching a small piece. That pumpkin from Barbara Ana is too cute. Antique Almond is gorgeous. That will be beautiful, Deb. Rather than a corner gauge I use my index finger to measure. I inch to each knuckle. It’s always at hand. My mom was a wonderful seamstress and quilter and she always did that. I saw Aida performed in Cleveland and I never knew that.
If you are able to click the down arrow in the description box using the device you view with then you should see it.
Our process is to load the video and then over the next day I review it and note everything we think we can provide additional info to support the video. Then I research it online and gather the links and compile the information. It is all there by the end of Friday following the post. There is a great deal of info there on these two.
Last month I started putting a note into the description box that says that it will be posted by Friday night. Then when it is completed, I delete the note. Thanks for your patience Julie. AND...Thanks for watching.😉🤓LIZ
Welcome back. It is always so fun to see what the two of you are stitching. Most interested in seeing how Deb is going to finish "Stitch Every Day" as I want to do this piece. Also, Liz, you showed the little pocket watch (Holtz?) and I would be most interested in seeing how that back attaches to the pocket watch once you get the linen inside. Would it be possible to have some instructions on that once you work on it. I have the same watch and thought putting the back on might be a little tricky. There are no instructions with the packaging for the watch either. Great job on the video as usual. You two are the best. Norma Flake
I will be watching and appreciate your help with the clock back. I don't want to scratch it in the process, so will be most interested to watch your technique. Look forward to seeing your upcoming videos filled with so much information. Enjoy it all so much. Norma
Anunciado durante a Gamescom 2017, uma das maiores feiras de videogame do mundo, o remake de Secret of Mana é, desde o início, um projeto pensado para agradar aos fãs de longa data e atrair jogadores novatos com um gameplay mais acessível.
Não se engane: a versão 2018 de Secret of Mana está mais para uma recriação do que uma mera remasterização com pequeno ajustes gráficos. O que temos aqui é um jogo completamente atualizado, com personagens redesenhados que ganharam nova vida graças à estética cartunesca.
Se, por um lado, as mudanças visuais foram projetadas para atrair novatos, por outro, algumas pessoas podem torcer o nariz pela simplicidade da nova abordagem - especialmente no que diz respeito aos cenários e criaturas do mundo.
Os cenários coloridos, por exemplo, ainda que estejam bem representados, trazem pouca variedade e deixam game com cara de “jogo de celular”. Isso fica mais evidente pela estrutura do game, já que muitas áreas estão completamente vazias e monótonas. Nesse quesito, Secret of Mana não tem vantagem em ter o fator nostalgia a seu favor.
O remake utiliza a clássica perspectiva de visão aérea, com a câmera posicionada acima dos personagens. É possível arrastar as bordas da tela manualmente para ter uma visão mais ampla do ambiente, o que é bastante útil para momentos de exploração.
O brilho da era noventista, mas com ressalvas.
Antes de tudo, é importante ressaltar que não há legendas em português, então o melhor a fazer é jogar com textos em inglês. A história continua sendo o ponto mais alto de Secret of Mana e, novamente, coloca o jogador no controle de três adoráveis personagens: Randi, Primm e Popoi - é possível jogar em modo cooperativo local para até três usuários.
O objetivo do grupo é lutar contra um império traidor ao mesmo tempo em que tenta recuperar o poder da Mana para restaurar a paz. O grande problema é que, embora os gráficos estejam atualizados, as animações ficaram presas ao passado. Em vez de despertar o sentimento de nostalgia, a falta de capricho passa a impressão de que o remake foi feito às pressas.
A jogabilidade à la Zelda foi aprimorada e permite desferir ataques de qualquer ângulo. Os inimigos também demonstram mais inteligência, uma vez que agora eles têm a opção de atacar a partir de qualquer ponto do cenário.
Ainda que a movimentação esteja mais fluida, parece haver algum problema técnico relacionado ao impacto dos golpes. Isso porque há momentos em que o personagem simplesmente não acerta o ataque, mesmo posicionado a uma distância razoável do oponente.
Além disso, a interface dos menus ficou bem aquém do esperado, com abas confusas e muito mal posicionadas. Há, no entanto, uma opção de mapear os itens essenciais nos botões do joystick ou teclado, o que facilita muito a organização na hora de combates mais exigentes.
O remake de Secret of Mana mantém a essência da pérola dos RPGs de ação dos anos 90, mas comete muitos deslizes ao tentar mexer em time que está ganhando. Menus engessados, sistema de combate com problemas técnicos e animações presas ao passado impedem o relançamento de ser a experiência definitiva, apesar de que possa valer para quem nunca experimentou o jogo original.
