So I saw the latest JCS magazine, Jan/Feb 2011, on someone else’s blog recently, was it Glenna’s?
I had to buy it because of this Praiseworthy Stitches design:
If you are also contemplating doing this design , please be aware of an error. On page 19 under the list of required materials, they ask for a “16” x 14” piece of 32-ct Winter Sky linen from Lakeside Linens”. On page 21 is the stitch count and design size info, and the Design Size is indicated at: 8-1/2” x 19”. OOOPS! in a big way if you’ve already bought or cut the 14” wide fabric and started stitching! Honestly, it took me 3 or 4 flips thru the pages looking for the stitch count info because I was trying to determine the fabric required for a different count, and when I did the math for the 32 ct. (my OCD finally came in handy because I did ALL the calculations for 28 ct up thru 40 ct. and wrote them in the margin) I finally saw the inconsistency. Why this info isn’t on the same page as the Materials & Floss key is beyond me. Though if I thought about the layout of the ornament issues for more than the 2 minutes it takes to cause a huge headache, I’d see that JCS is being ENTIRELY consistent in their magazine design layout.
So ALWAYS DO THE MATH!!!
