1  Empty Dog House In The Snow in CHALLENGE 82 ENTRIES by DreamyDahlia on: January 07, 2013 10:50:59 AM
For our first ever gingerbread house , we chose to to make an empty dog house sitting in the snow. Someone has built a snowman outside the front door, but no dog lives there during the harsh winter months. All dogs belong in the house or in a sheltered and windproofed area for protection while they, along with us, wait for the sunny days of Spring to return.

Side view:

The roof of the dog house was tiled with frosted shredded wheat.

2  Astrid The M&M in Halloween Costumes by DreamyDahlia on: November 02, 2012 07:09:30 PM
This year Astrid's vet had a fun Halloween party for all of his patients and patients parents. She's a pretty big girl and I didn't want her getting too warm at the party, so I came up with this M&M idea. I made an extra wide collar using Pellon fusible stabilizer to stiffen it up. The pillow was two circles with lace edging, stuffed with poly fill. The M was cut from felt and machine stitched on following the outline of the letter. The collar was secured with velcro and the m&m was secured to the band with velcro also.

5  Deux Cloches in Crochet: Completed Projects by DreamyDahlia on: August 26, 2011 11:46:16 AM
I love the 1920s style of these hats. The pattern was easy and best of all, free, from Lion Brand.  http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/chs-cloche.html?noImages=

6  Crochet Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by DreamyDahlia on: March 28, 2011 11:29:38 AM
I had several skeins of this chunky purple yarn left...Lion Brand Super Bulky 'Portland Wine'. I decided to just see how far it would take me. I started doing a granny square and just kept going until I ran out. It measures 30"x30", isn't big enough for much except to display as a piece of yarn art on the sofa.

8  Loom Knit Hats in Knitting: Completed Projects by DreamyDahlia on: February 17, 2011 07:56:56 AM
I've made several 'traditional' hats on my circle knitting loom, now I want something a little different, so book in hand I'm trying new stitches. The first hat pictured, the white popcorn stitch, was surprisingly easy. The woven top hat was a little more difficult and was a real lesson in patience for me. I found both patterns and instructions in the Learn New Stitches On Circle Looms book.

9  Knit Spring Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by DreamyDahlia on: February 10, 2011 05:12:37 AM
This hat was knit on a round loom with 100% cotton yarn. I didn't want a wide brim and was going more for more of a flapper style, so I just did a very narrow brim, achieving the edging I was after. The flower is crochet (by me) with a pearl inserted in the center.

10  First Ever Embroidery Project in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by DreamyDahlia on: January 29, 2011 06:01:23 AM
This was done on my brand new Brother SE400. I'm completely new to machine embroidery and felt a real sense of accomplishment! So much to learn...especially about these stabilizers. I'm getting my shipment of tear away, wash away, and temporary spray on Tuesday. Then, I will be lurking here continuously looking for tips and ideas.
