Wood Is Good

January 20th, 2005 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

As many of you know, I collect postcards. I buy them in all the places I travel to and through, and I save the ones friends send to me. So I want to give a great big thank you to the anonymous Crochetville Elf who sent me a wooden post card from Canada! I love it! She said her uncle used to make them. Even better! It will be a star in my collection. :-)

Graphics tip: For those of you who want to know how I made some of the writing look like scratch in the photo: Adobe Photoshop, make the image relatively small (I did 350 x 260 pixels), select the desired area with a rectangular marquee, then choose Filter > Brush Strokes > Crosshatch.

    you have awesome work. I am new still to crocheting. But I have recently started a message board for crocheters/knitters. We swap patterns, show off our work and make new friends. I would love your expertise to be shown. Please come and check us out. thanks so much
