Desperation is the mother of all invention.

So, I've got this cross-stitch project that I want to work on. Somehow, during the move, all of my metal pattern boards disappeared, and this was really annoying me. Then, I was unable to find the ones I had before in any of the local craft stores. I could find smaller ones, but I really wanted one that was at least 11"x17", so I could see the whole pattern at once.

Today, after one last failed attempt at finding the pattern board, inspiration hit.

I am now happily working my pattern from... a cookie sheet. Hee!
