Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Citrus Stitch Sample

This stitch is best used as an edging but can also be used as part of a pattern for dishcloths, coasters, sweaters, scarves and afghans. It starts out as a chain then the chain is worked like an afghan st, then it becomes what looks like a half slice of citrus fruit.

How to work the Citrus Stitch (cit)

When using this stitch, you will need to use some sort of supporting stitch to make this work out right. Such as in this month's dishcloth or the coaster. In the dishcloth, you have every other row made up of sc and dc to support the cit stitch and keep it in place. You also need to secure the stitch on the row with a sc or dc st between each cit stitch. Plus you need to allow room for this stitch. You will need to be working with a multiple of 2sts plus 1 when using it in dishcloths.
