Q&A with sfgrrl

sherric asked:
we should all weather storms with calm and grace=
sfgrrl answered:
I agree! Brave kitty!
Stephanie Hill asked:
sfgrrl, Please may I ask, but how big is this? Im still new at sewing and I worked a little with the printable fabrice but only could make it 8x11. Any hints on how to get a biger photos. thanks for your cute photo. God Bless you and keep you Stephanie in NC
sfgrrl answered:
No. This is 8x11. This is the largest size my printer can use. If you take a lot of pics of your subject, you could splice them together by piecing them together ala a patchwork quilt. By thread 'painting' or fabric painting you can disguise any gaps. Good luck on your sewing journey Stephanie.
