I've received a notice from my local post office that my package from Homboltcherry is there and available for me to pick up as of Monday. Smiley

I hope karma comes along and bites people like this in the ass. Even if we never find out about it, I hope it happens.

But as far as the cards are concerned, I used them anyway to make one sided birthday cards. Smiley Probably for my nephews.

I actually just got done making about 10 cards here tonight. 9 of them are birthday cards and 1 is an any happy occasion card. I decorated some red note cards (that I thought were folded cards) from AC Moore with matching envelopes with a bunch of Spider-Man stuff that was leftover from decorations from a birthday lunch my friends had for me last year. Smiley I'm such a pack rat! But on the practical side, it was a good night of crafting that didn't cost me anything, especially considering how I had to cancel my bank card tonight because it had been "compromised." Sad Bah!

That's a really neat idea of using a taper candle in the center like that so you have a straight wick. Smiley

Okay, so this one I can do without making any more work for myself! Smiley Just sent in my questionnaire and will be happy to get some stuff out of my stash! Smiley

308  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Thanks, Maria Merlino!!! on: January 26, 2012 08:58:23 AM
Maria Merlino, thanks so much for this free pattern you posted!  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

My crafting room is upstairs in our house, which is actually the finished off room in our attic. I love it. It has floor and ceiling paneling, great storage, and the walls and ceiling follow the peak of our house's roof.

That being said, the stairs going up to the room are narrow and steep. I've tripped going up and down them so many times. It's not even a big enough doorway for a door. I used to have two plaid paneled curtains in the door frame, because when I'm wrapping gifts up there, I like a little privacy from any wandering eyes.

Last summer, I started to crochet this blanket from Maria Merlino. When I did a little cleaning last summer, I decided to move those curtains to the dining room and get something new to hang over the open doorway. I originally thought I could make this to be a curtain for the window upstairs in my room, but I misjudged the finished size, so that's why it's my doorway curtain instead.

I started working on it in June 2011 and worked on it here and there, whenever I had some time and wasn't working on something else for someone else. I just finished the actual blanket last night. Tonight, I'm going to add some extra (removeable) loops to the top edge to I can slide a tension rod through it and use it as my new curtain.

It's almost 6 feet long and about 4 feet wide, and I actually left out some rows towards the top, making the chopsticks a little shorter (and a little wonky looking, in my opinion), because I really was starting to think that if I didn't cut this shorter, it...was..never...going..to...end. I  also think I made my blanket different than what Maria designed, but I'm not sure. I think her white sections are supposed to have SC chains in them to make it more of an open pattern. Mine is all DC's.

I used a J sized crochet hook. It's made with Caron white and scarlet (100% acrylic), but I've forgotten how much I used. I started out with the one pound skeins of each color but I think I had to buy one more of each but hardly used any of the extra skeins. It's just been so long. The edging is 1 1/2 skeins of Moda Dea yarn in Jai Alai (#6532), a  100% polyester yarn that I believe has been discontinued. I know it totally doesn't match in color to the blanket, but I love this stuff so much.

I can't wait to get this hung tonight. My husband has been a little crazy over it. As a Hawkeyes fan, he would have preferred a different color scheme. In his opinion, I should have finished this and give it to his friend Crystal, who is a Nebraska fan, and then make one for our house in yellow and white instead. I said no way, I've spent too much time working on this one to give away! Smiley Then I told him to be nice or I'd crochet us a Patriots blanket for our bed. Smiley

Almost have the second thing done. That will definitely be done by tonight, and might be able to whip out one more little thing before mailing it on the last day of January. Smiley

I've got one whole project done and am about 75% done with the second project. Smiley My goal is to have the package ready to ship on Friday or Saturday. Smiley
