I figure, better late than never, but I hope that's ok.  I decoupaged these then spayed them with a sealant to make them shiney.  Now I am going to get them laminated.  My daughter and youngest son have claimed them, cept my son wants me to remove the butterfly on the second one.  Oh well.  Anyway, thanks for looking.

5  From knit to crochet-Possum Love in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by tina522 on: April 22, 2008 04:41:59 PM

I contacted the woman who originally made this pattern in knit form, and asked her if I could post the crocheted version that I converted.  She said ok. It was awesome of her to let me.   So here it is.  I hope you like it and pm me with any issues.  This is a first for me, so forgive any shortcomings.  Her link to her original pattern is here under rupetur.http://rupestur.livejournal.com/15177.html#cutid1

Row 2:   (yes, these are rows)   ch 1, 2 sc in 1st st, sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in last st, sl st in same st. (this helps to add curve to ear).

 

Finish off leaving 2 inch tail.  Now, the 2 strands should be close to eachother, so tie these together tight twice, (this helps cup the ear).

 

Tail  (almost done, yay!)

 

Magic ring 6, or ch 2 and 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.

Continue rounds of 6 til you have the length you like.  If you want the tail to taper off, then just decrease to 4 sts  for last few rounds.  After you are satisfied with the length, ch 4 and sl st to first ch.  This is so you can hang your possum upside down if you like.  Enjoy!!!

 

Assemble as in picture.

6  brendbrown's elegant bobble stitch basket. in Crochet: Completed Projects by tina522 on: April 07, 2008 05:42:42 AM
This was a free pattern at crochetville.  I thought she did a nice job on the pattern.  I added beads instead of ribbon in the eyelet round.  Just thought I would brag for her.  Ha!  Thanks for looking.

9  Inchies? in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by tina522 on: March 26, 2008 07:18:10 PM
Well, I was very inspired by babbetto, who's work is awesome.  This is my first attempt and it is not complete obviously, but I was just wondering if I am on the right track?  It seems like it looks much better in my head.  Ha.  I don't mind criticism, it's how you learn.  Thanks

10  Re: french beaded flowers in Beads: Completed Projects by tina522 on: March 25, 2008 03:03:20 PM
Those look great!
Wow, I would be intimidated to start that project too!!
How long do one of those flowers take you?
Do you use wire on all of them for the shape? What kind (gauge)?

Thanks for all your lovely comments.  A very good book to start with is "French beaded Designs by Donna DeAngelis.  It gives great step by step instructions on the basic framework of the flowers, but their are many authors.  I use a lot of 26 and 28 gauge wire and seed beads sizes 9-11.  The book explains well.  Also, for my first flower I put the beads on one by one. OMG! You do not have to do that.  They mention a spinner in many books but they are hard to find and pricey.  I take on oversized easter egg and hot glue a pencil in the middle of it.  Then pour the beads into it.  Spin the egg holding the pencil in your left hand and with the wire in your right hand, (slightly bend the tip of the wire) and while spinning, graze the beads with the wire and they will jump onto the wire.  They really do and this will save you hours of time.  I just don't want you to make the same mistake that I did at first.
