Being that I forgot to reverse my lettering yesterday, and didn't realize it until I saw the picture on my blog, I had to re-do the whole thing. I went searching on google for a way to reverse lettering in Word 2003, and apparently you can't. Woe is me.
You can in newer versions, but I can't walk you through that.
So. I put my thinking cap on, which promptly melted [it's 93F, no a/c] and scanned my printed pages into my computer. I then opened them in paint, flipped them horizontally, and saved them as a png file. I copied and pasted the png files into another word document, and lo and behold, it worked.
And for some strange, bonus reason, the print came out darker than the original - no light box needed to trace these onto fusible web!
Isn't that a lovely compensation for the extra work. I'd trace them tonight, but I had used up all my fusible and need to get more tomorrow.
I don't think I ever showed you this quilt, it belongs to my friend Shirley, and was made by her husband's aunt many years ago. I think it's interesting that what is old is new again - I'm seeing these quilts made new everywhere. Lovely, isn't it?
And a close-up:
Have a great weekend -
