I found this great Easter wreath tutorial ( http://debbie-doodlings.blogspot.com/2010/03/at-it-again-more-easter-egg-wreaths.html ) and decided to give it a whirl. Super easy. You just cut out a cardboard circle and then use a hot glue gun to stick the plastic eggs on, fill it in with that shredded plastic stuff, add a bow, et voila! But since I don't even know the name for the shredded plastic stuff, it might be advisable for you to visit this tutorial...cuz she's a little better at explaining it than I am! lol
I'm a knitter who's been wanting to learn how to crochet forever, so I learned how to crochet last week (well, I kinda knew how to do stitches but I never knew their names...not sure how that happened, but it did, and it made it impossible to follow a pattern). My friend's mom just sort of told me the names of the stitches. I went to the library and found the book Super Cute Crochet and set to work. Within two days, this pony was born. I must say...I'm pretty darn proud. Crochet shaping is so much easier than knitting shaping, and I think a little more effective. I think I've found a new addiction. (sigh - like I needed ANOTHER one!!!)
I don`t know if this is in the right place or not, but I`ve organized a stitch n bitch group in the St. James/Unicity area of Winnipeg. We meet Wednesday nights from 7-9ish at the Daily Grind coffee house ( http://www.dailygrind.ca/Location.htm ). Open to anyone interested. We have knitters and crocheters! It's a great, quaint coffee house, complete with comfy couches!
I painted this years ago. She was intended to be something else, and then I tried to correct it with a few brush strokes. I was ready to toss her when I looked again and saw that she was kinda cool. I named her Miss Shapen. I put her on ebay and she was bought by Nancy Juvonen...Drew Barrymore's business partner and best friend. I thought that was pretty cool.
