Hoi!

Ik ken de term avalon suede ook niet, kan je het misschien omschrijven? Misschien kennen andere craftsters het onder een andere naam.

wow, great work! What (kind of )bone did you use?

P.S. If it smells like burned bone at your dentist I'd recommend to get a different dentist.

great looking seat covers! I'm just about to make some, so the advise came in handy.
We're borrowing my in laws car for the holiday and I thought a gray 2008 skoda could do with something a bit more fun............. And at least if they don't like em we can save them for when we finally own a car......... Smiley

115  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / so far so good.............. but what now? on: June 24, 2009 06:06:48 AM
Ok so I fell in love whit the oasis wrap at www.naturallycaron.com. I'm quite new to crochet but as all earlier projects were a breeze I thought I could handle it. So I started and after figuring out how to do the foundation row stitch I crocheted happily along. The description reads :Foundation Row: Chain 2, sc in top loops of second ch from hook (counts as mod-sc), *ch 1, mod-sc in previous sc; repeat from * until 195 mod-sc have been made,(so far so good but then: ) ch 1195 mod-sc.. And Now I am lost, for I have no idea what I'm supposed to do. Do I make 195 chainstiches? Do I somehow crochet in opposite direction with the same stitch as before?
I really hope somebody can explain this to me, as I don't know anybody who does crochet.

the full description can be found at: http://www.naturallycaron.com/projects/oasis/oasis_1.html

you could just put them in a large pot or bowl mixed with some fairy lights. Our fire place doesn't work so we did this and put the pot in the heart, so it looks a bit like a glowing fire. really nice effect, if I say so myself...........

I would make use of the space as a storage, because who has enough storage anyway?

You could make some pull out cupboards. I mean ones that will fit snugly in the triangular space. You just need to measure the space well, taking in account the angle of the corners, and then just saw yourself through some (cheap) plywood, make the bases on some wheels and the fronts to follow the shape of the nook. The just add paint and handles and you can store a lot of stuff there.......

would it be an idea to hang rope( like a washingline) along a wall? Just hang some ropes along a wall above each other with a feet or so appart. You can then hang the fabric pieces from the rope with a clothes pin. You can rearrange the fabrics by colour or pattern and it would look really jummy.
119  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / what to make for someone you don't like? on: May 26, 2009 07:54:50 AM
Huh?? Yes it is a weird thing to do or even ask, but this just seems to be my problem.
I really don't like my boyfriends mother and I think she doesn't like me either, but insists on pretending.

My trouble is, she LOVES crafts. And not just crafts, but things made especially for her (so she can go tell everyone how lucky the maker was to be able to make something for her).  Roll Eyes

I like the rest of the family and as a crafty person have made most gifts myself. But not for her. Crafting something for someone who I don't like just doesn't seem possible. I can not do it and end up buying a box of chocolates, again.

I could make something nasty, but my boyfriend doesn't want me to start a row.( I wouldn't care)

So what should I do? What to make for someone you don't like, who (it feels like) demands a handmade gift?  Please help!!

Amsterdam has got many great craft and thrift shops, which are unfortunately spread out over the whole city.  Sad  To visit them all would cost days!

But for cross-stitching I know at least two good shops.

De Afstap, located behind the dam square, http://www.afstap.nl/
Jan de kleinvakman, http://www.jandegrotekleinvakman.nl/ on the Albert Cuyp street market. Here you can also find several good fabric shops and a few dollarstore kind of shops.
