21  Re: Tire tread quilting in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by Eamea on: January 30, 2012 10:16:12 AM
I don't know if it's the most efficient, but here's the way I would do it.  Wink

Construct your black top.  Divide the vertical space into four even parts for your columns.  The tread itself is made from just one motif.  It is flipped horizontally and vertically to create the different patterns.  Play with the size until you find something that looks right for the scale of your top.  I would make a cardstock template of it so I could just trace along the top and part of the bottom.  Use a ruler to keep them in a straight line and evenly spaced.  Here's a primitive Photoshop highlighting the parts in purple in case you need it.  Hope this helps!

22  Wedding quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eamea on: January 26, 2012 01:03:46 PM
I finished this in the fall, but I never got as far as posting it.  It was done for a nephew's wedding, and I chose the colors based on two of his favorite sports teams:  the St. Louis Blues and Mizzou football.

I didn't have enough of any one color to do the back, so I took the leftovers from the top, added a brighter yellow, and pieced that sucker.  Wink

23  Scrappy abstract cats in Crochet: Completed Projects by Eamea on: January 26, 2012 12:58:06 PM
I loved this pattern but didn't have enough of any color to make repeating stripes.  I decided to go with the scrappy look, and I'll be donating it to Project Linus.  The pattern is here http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2009/04/abstract-crochet-cats.html

24  Star washcloths in Crochet: Completed Projects by Eamea on: January 26, 2012 12:54:30 PM
I used the star afghan pattern and substituted cotton thread for yarn to make these washcloths.  I gave them to a 4 and 8 year old, and they loved them.  I used the pattern here http://www.angelfire.com/va3/heartfeltangels/littlestarafghan.html.

I received this wonderful card from tastyclaythings for my fairies theme.  There's a lot going on here; I just sat and stared at it when it came. Smiley  The oval is either stamped or was already printed, the wings are paper cutouts, the body is fabric (would love to see the whole print!), the flower is paper with a button center, and it all hangs from grosgrain ribbon.  Too cute!

26  Re: A Scarf and A Blasted Ladder Stitch in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Eamea on: January 21, 2012 11:37:24 AM
Hopefully this will help you be less cranky.  Wink  In the pictures, the HDC row is done in cream and the ladder stitch rows are done in purple.

Here is your HDC row and your first row of the ladder stitch.  On each end of the scarf there are two single crochets, and there are eight spaces.  I'm not sure how you got to five spaces, but I think it's in the sk st.  That stands for "skip stitch" and you don't actually make a new stitch.  After you work two singles into the previous row you are chaining two.  They make up for the length of the stitches you are skipping so your work will keep an even number of stitches in each row.  You've now worked two singles and chained two, so when you insert your needle into the previous row to do the next two singles your hook goes into the third available stitch in the previous row.  When you work this across the whole row you should be able to end with two single crochets right on pattern.

The second row works right on top of the first, and the stitches should line up.  Your singles should be over your singles and your chain two spaces will be over the previous row's spaces.  I  pinned this with some tension so you could see what's going on, but in real life the top row will lay down and not arch above the previous row.

I received my final extras from crazyalien8, and they're awesome!  Sometimes it's not a bad thing to be stalked.  Grin

Here's my whole set.  Thanks to everyone that I swapped with, and thanks to nilmerg for organizing.

My grey extras from Pogo have arrived!  There's a lot of cutwork and layering involved, and liberal use of a silver pen (hooray for shine!).  Thank you!

The quote reads, "This is not a black and white world, to be alive the colors must swirl, and I believe that maybe today we will all get to appreciate the beauty of grey."

I received my letters from crazyalien8, and they are awesome!  These are so detailed; even the area between the Ibex horns is cut out.  They are all so nice, but my favorite has to be the camel.  Thank you!!

Two more sets for me - thank you ladies!!
The first set is from Pogo, featuring cross stitch ears and the tiniest ants I've ever seen

And from Oodelally are some amazingly drawn squares.  I can't believe how much detail she packed in there!
