You know you're a Craftster when you find yourself petting a skein of yarn cooing " soon my precious, soon" while your recovering from carpal tunnel surgery.

Actual cracks; my gesso is fairly thick and I put three coats on over the wood glue I used to hold the cardboard together. It was the second  coat that I noticed the cracks, I thought that the next coat would fill and cover the cracks; Sad  it didn't.  Should I try another coat or maybe try something else?

I made a playscale (Barbie) sized chair using cardboard and wood glue- this part was fine it worked good. I waited a full 24 hours before putting the first coat of gesso on. This coat dried and looked just the way I thought it should. I proceeded to put 3 coats on, as the third coat was drying I noticed that some but not all  of the seams began to show cracks at first I didn't think much about it and covered them with another coat of gesso. Why is the wood glue cracking and why is the gesso not covering or filling the cracks? Can any one help me?

You might try your local library it is possible to find a number of pattern books for 18'' girl dolls there. Amazon.com also has a
fair number of books to choose from also links to outside sellers. You might try Google for knitting patterns, just have an idea about what it is that you want. I hope this helps you in your search.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crochet Cramps on: November 18, 2011 04:44:56 PM
I don't know if this will help anyone but here is a trick I did with some of my small hooks that made it a little easier for me to use them. I first wrote the size and brand name down on a small piece of paper then wrapped a short length of masking tape around the flat grip place of the hook. Then I took some old gel pens that the ink was gone, I removed the ink cartridge from inside and slid my hooks inside till the ends were poking out of the narrow end of the pen body I had to adjust the amount of masking tape so that the hook stayed in place. I put the small piece of paper inside so that I could read the size and put the end back on the pen. I also kept the cap so that when I finish working I can protect my small hooks. My favorite small hook now has a green body that says Sassy on the lower part. Grin Hope this trick will help other crocheters.

Will sizes D,E, and F hooks work instead of the ones you listed? Also, will regular shank buttons work for the joints? I just finish a small shirt for my action figure so I am just about ready to poppet. Thank you for being so nice answering my questions.  Grin

I am so ready to be assimilated. She is just so cute! In your pattern you use three different size hooks;will it change the way she turns out if I don't use all three hooks? I haven't really worked with patterns very much so I don't know. She is so adorable and I want her to turnout right. Thank you.
