Well, I never really left! But a year ago, I went on vacation and put my setting to vacation mode. My computer died and I lose my way to change my settings. Thanks to our lovely list-moderator, I got back in! Thank you!
I have a plea for help! My daughter is being confirmed April 23. The only gift she wants is a picture of The Lord's Supper for her room. Back in 1986, I started a Lord's Supper in cross-stitch from Stoney Creek Collection, copyright 1986. Since my daughter was born in 1991, this will be historic needlework to her. She doesn't even know that I was working on the cross-stitch piece because I stopped before she was born. She has never seen it. I have the piece 85% complete. Working on black aida was giving me migraines and stopped. It was murdering my eye sight.
I have searched my needlework books and all my stitching areas. I can not find the Stoney Creek book with the pattern. Now, all I have is page 14 with the patterns for each end of the table...the center pattern with Jesus is missing This is embarrassing...I have everything complete but the 60 X 15 stitches of the left side of the tablecloth that drapes off the table and the challis...so I need the Jesus section of the pattern. I also need to outline all the people. I am also missing the DMC color key and symbols.
Today, I bought a new lighted magnifying glass to cut down on headaches while finishing on the piece. I am heartbroken that I lost this pattern. I have never lost my needlework patterns before. I have keep all my patterns since childhood.
Does anyone have this pattern from Stoney Creek and willing to share it? This was not in their magazine, but a booklet with several patterns like in the craft stores.
