Hi Sharon, I have a problem with printing out the full description of the stitch so that I can sit and follow it, some only print out part of the page, a lot of these stitches are new to me, is there a way around thisI have been ill and away so am slowly working my way through the last couple but enjoying it immenseley. thanks Penny
Hi penny – Your printing problems will be something in your settings – I have not done anything that means people can only print one page
Check that you have checked print all pages – or what ever the options your printer gives you – it should then do as it is told!
Wow, Sharon!! We must think alike! I posted a Palestrina stitch video tutorial earlier this morning, only about half a day before this week’s TAST!
In the video, I just covered the basic method of the stitch – the video is a little cloudy from the lower resolution in conversion, but I think the method is still clear, if anyone wants to use it while working on the TAST challenge for this week. Once you get how the stitch is formed, it’s easy to take it further with extended arms or “barbs.”
Hi Sharon – I have finally loaded my Bonnet and Oyster stitch samples. You have certainly been setting challenges but it is very good to discover new stitches and work through them. Incidentally, I can only ever print one page too and I have tried everything.
I have no idea what is causing the print one page problem so I did a bit of search using the terms “print one page” problem
This might help a little but it depends on what printer you are using – if you do a search with your printers name in the search it might help http://en.allexperts.com/q/Printers-1512/Printing-Only-1-page.htm
Hi Sharon, I’m not having a “print one page” problem, but I find I have to select “landscape” in my printer options to print out the full width of the pages. Something to do with the menu down the left side of the page I’m told. Perhaps people could try that and see if it solves their problems too?
hooroo, Christine. http://missmuffettwo.blogspot.com/
Thanks for the info on my print problem, still wont do it but may try the landscape format and see if that works. My bonnet stitch and oyster stitch are on my blog http://backvalleyseasons.blogspot.com
I am not sure if I got the oyster stitch done correcty but it looks more or less like the description. Find them a challenge but fun to do.
Hi Its me again. I have finished my palestrina stitch and made a bit of a mess of bits of it but loved the one I did with over lapping wool. A good stitch to know.
Landscape didnt work for me but I am getting quite good at sketching out the bits that dont print. this stitch was in a book I had so no problems with following it.
