I still can't believe it, Epsom Salt! Here is the funny thing it's right here on the package, with directions. Too funny! Who would have thought? See More on this at http://www.onemoretimeevents.com/2012/07/use...
Just finished a very detailed cross-stitch project. First one I've done this large. Started as a beginner, ended as a pretty accomplished sewer (ha)! The fabric needs to be ironed before
I frame it. After all that work I don't want to mess it up now. I've read how to iron it on the back side, but my question:
There are many tiny beads sew throughout -- is the iron going to hurt them? Any advice? Thank you!!
My aunt who does absolutely beautiful work and has won many contests has told me, the
beginner, a few things. Like - when you hand was the finished project to get out any dirt and/or body oils from your hands, to use a mild soap (Dove, or a baby soap ) and NEVER use Woollite as it will make the colors run. Also she said to roll it ( flat ) in a towel to dry it. You may have to use more than one towel depending on the size. Then lay flat, face down on a towel, so the beads won't melt and the threads aren't crushed. Then iron it gently to remove wrinkles. Also, I agree with Evelyn about the framing ! Having it done IS very expensive even with big discounts like Michaels has, as I just found out. Hope this helped some !
With Japanese Maples is not monogamous. *Warning* If you have a weakness for beautiful trees and or rare and unusual , this post is not for you! Yes, THIS is why I work where I do ! (Yep

I absolutely LOVE these ! I was the talk of the neighborhood with mine. Unfortunately when it
says full sun it doesn't apply to full sun in TEXAS. I had planted it on the NW side of my house & it was shriveling up. So I move it to the east side and it started to pick up, but I guess our Texas heat ,especially the last 2 years does not do well for the Japanese Maples. And now I am left with hoping my Magnolia will make it. You have gorgeous trees ! And of course the nursery helps too !
