Even after triple and quadruple double-checking, some color numbers slipped past me on a few letters in Stitch Sampler Alphabet, and I wanted to get the news out to those of you who have purchased the e-book as soon as possible. And the blog being the best place to do that, here we are, interrupting our normal schedule to bring you…
…the Dreaded Errata Notice!
In other words, to say with a bit of a blush, I made a couple mistakes.
If you plan to use the color schemes and the same threads listed in the e-book, specifically for letters S, F, and D, you’ll want to make note of these three errors in the book.
Thanks to Vaune Pierce at vaune.com for the discoveries – she sure knows her floche and coton a broder!
For the letter S, dark purple should be 552, not 522.
For the letter F, light green should be 3348, not 348.
And for the letter D, the three coral colors in floche are 352, 350, and 349, from light to dark.
Downloading the e-Book
You may have seen these instructions on the description page, on the shop page, and on the order success page, but in case you missed it in those three places, if you order the e-book, you’ll need to download to your computer first and then sync your devices from your computer.
So, for example, if you have an iPad, download the e-book to your computer, add it to your iTunes library, and then sync your iPad with iTunes, and the e-book will show up in iBooks.
If you have a Kindle, drag and drop the PDF file directly from the computer via USB to your Kindle device. You can use your send-to-Kindle address if it will handle an 89MB file. Normally, this isn’t the case, so connecting with the USB and dragging and dropping from your computer is the best choice.
A big fat furry Thank You to all of you who have responded so enthusiastically to Stitch Sampler Alphabet.
I have to admit, there’s always a bit of trepidation and trembling when releasing something like this, and your excitement and pleasure over the book has put that to rest.
This week only (through Sunday), Stitch Sampler Alphabet is available at the introductory price, so if you don’t have your copy yet, pick it up in my Needle ‘n Thread e-book shop by this Sunday to get the introductory discount.
If you’re not sure you’d like the book and you need a little subtle prodding, check out the comments section on the book release notice.
And thus ends my Shameless Self-Promotion.
Project Progress coming up soon!
I’ve had a few emails wondering when I’ll get back to updating you on projects. Soon, I promise! I’m not finished with the hummingbirds yet, but when they’re finished, you’ll be the first to see them, I guarantee it.
Other than that, I’m working on some articles for other publications and on some tutorials to share with you here, so there’s interesting stuff coming up! Stay tuned!
