11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Pincushion Swap on: February 09, 2012 06:35:32 AM
I have never participated in a swap before, but a small swap like a pincushion/sewing accessory swap sounds like a great place to start!

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Just in time for Valentines on: February 07, 2012 06:00:49 PM
A couple of months ago, I lost my full time job and haven't been able to find anything else.   While losing my job, in and of itself, was bad, it has given me more time to craft.  Thus, this afghan was born. 

My grandmother has made every one of her kids and (married) grandkids an afghan with a similar pattern.  I took the afghan I got from her and made a similar one, modifying the original pattern as I went along.  Mine isn't quite as frilly as hers was, but I am quite happy with it.  This afghan is approximately 43" X 65", and is made from Red Heart 100% acrylic yarn using a size I crochet hook.  I spent just over a week working on this.  It is made with a little more than 5 skeins of yarn.  It is the first afghan that I have both started AND finished (I bought a nearly finished afghan at a garage sale this past summer, finished it and gave it to my mom).

Anyway, on to the pictures of this afghan:

I've had these crackers bookmarked for quite some time.  Just the other day,my husband asked me to pick up some cheese crackers for when he works the overnight shift.  Instead, I tried this recipe, using mild cheddar cheese instead of sharp 'cuz it was all I had on hand.  My husband loved them!  I'm looking forward to trying the recipe with sharp cheese!  Very good, thank you!

Very unique and very well done!  I like it - a lot!  I might have to visit the thrift store and see if I can find the supplies!

I agree with the previous posters - that fabric is great!

Kudos to you for finishing a floor-length patchwork skirt!  I started a similar skirt for myself, but used squares from the same fabric.  I ended up getting tired of cutting/sewing squares and made the skirt knee-length instead of floor length like I'd originally planned.  I plan to make a broomstick skirt out of rectangles as my next project...

I love the colors of your skirt and it looks like so much fun to wear!  Good job!
