1  Re: Scavenger Hunt Crochet Motif Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by canto_xii on: July 18, 2009 01:28:04 PM
Here are the motifs craftADDchick made for me!

First row:
1. Worked in the round
2. Heritage motif (shamrock)
3. Uses bobble stitches
Second row:
1. Smaller than three inches
2. Asymmetrical
3. 3 shades/tones of one color

They're beautiful!  I love the shamrock, the tiny flower, the orange wheel, and the large 3 shade ones in particular but they're all really cool.

Sorry I forgot to mention which motif was which on the ones I sent:
1. Sender's Choice (I just liked this one a lot) - pattern: http://www.geocities.com/cdjsimon/flower_burst.html
2. Flower motif - pattern: http://www.geocities.com/alyssa5000/flowersq.html
3. Worked in rounds - pattern: http://www.crochetnmore.com/grannysquare.htm
4. Front post double crochet - pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/springtime-coasters
5. Lacy (after I made this one it wasn't as lacy as I thought it would be but it was so pretty that I just kept it) - pattern: http://www.jpfun.com/patterns/free/coasters/f108002littlehexagonmotif.shtml
6. Bobble stitches - pattern: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60153.html

Nymeria - Thanks for the encouragement!

MareMare - Yes, I think I just cooked it too long.  My second batch came out MUCH nicer!



I used black tea FO and swirled tea grounds(?) into it.  It smells lovely and is a lot smoother than the first try.

3  First HP Attempt... in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by canto_xii on: December 12, 2008 02:57:22 PM
Not so great, akshuly!  I think I may have overcooked it a bit.  It came out really lumpy and a lot of it crumbled when I cut it today.  I love the smell (and the fact that I had to use only TEASPOONS of FO instead of ounces) and I think the colors are pretty.  I'm definitely attempting HP again (right now, as a matter of fact!).

To get the bars to stick together, I dunked them in hot water and just pressed them in my hands.  They're really malformed looking, especially next to my pretty Citrus Melon CP!

I had to wedge myself into the closet with my 8 year old camera to take these so the color and focus are obviously kind of off but you get the idea.

I'm determined to get this right though.  Right now I'm working on a black tea flavor HP and if that comes out any better, I'll post pictures of my progress!
