My name is David Jefferson and I live near the historic English market town of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England. I am a designer of stitching card patterns. I created the patterns available from the Stitching Cards, Form-A-Lines and Pinbroidery websites.
The design features Lord Ganesh, the elephant headed god and the words Happy Diwali. This is a major Indian festival that is significant in Hinduism, Sikhism, and Jainism. Lord Ganesh is the Lord of Wisdom and the remover of obstacles.
Two patterns featuring thimbles have been added to the Stitching Cards collection.
One pattern features a thimble with a flower design and a needle with thread. It would make a lovely birthday card for a needlework enthusiast. The other thimble has holly with berries and would make a beautiful Christmas card.
The pattern size is 152 mm x 104 mm (6 x 4½ inches).
Cards made from a pattern you have purchased from the Stitching Cards website may be offered for sale if you include a copyright statement with the words “Design copyright www.stitchingcards.com”. The copyright statement would normally be added on the back of the card. These free downloadable stickers provide a neat and easy way to add the information.
Choose the words “Hand stitched by” or “Sold in aid of” and add your name or favourite charity. Print them on Avery labels or plain paper.
There are three styles of font to choose from. The fonts are embedded in the pdf files so that the extra words can be typed in text fields below the standard wording. Type your name once and it will be copied to the other stickers on the sheet automatically.
Trailhounds look similar to foxhounds but are leaner in build. They were originally bred from foxhounds with other crosses to get a faster hound with a good nose.
Hound trailing is a sport which takes place all over the Lake District of north-west England between April and October. The hounds run a circular route of up to 10 miles over field and fell, following a strong aniseed and paraffin scent. Owners and spectators wait at the meet for the outcome. A 10 mile trail takes between 25 minutes and 40 minutes and typically covers all terrain, from low-lying pasture to steep fell sides with streams, walls and ditches to be crossed in-between.
