4871  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: circle quilt made with fabic wedges on: May 24, 2007 07:10:21 PM
Very impressive.  I don't quite understand how you put it together but it's still a great work of art!
4872  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How many quilts do you have? on: May 24, 2007 06:43:01 PM
I've made about a dozen quilts (from queen size to baby size) and I have 4 at home and the rest have been gifts.  I plan to make one for each of my sons but I don't think I'll make anymore for my house.  It's more fun to make them and give them away.

So am I!  I don't know about the rest of you but I was getting tired of all these empty promises that you were actually going to start   Grin   Tongue   Grin
4874  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 22 on: May 24, 2007 06:16:00 PM
I claim knitting_nyxxie for:

Pony beads I love to make things out of melted beads!!!

This is my 6th claim (3 received, 1 mailed, 1 not yet sent)

I live in Alberta, Canada.

Orange cotton fabric that's not too girly.  I'm starting to collect fabric to make my oldest son a quilt and orange is his favorite color - FQ minimum/piece, please

Cotton fabric with trumpets and/or clarinets on it - 1/2 yard minimum, please

Laurel Burch's Hearts and Hummingbirds fabric in lavender - 1/2 yard minimum, please

A candy goodie box (this would be especially fun if you live in a non-North American country.)  I've had 2 such packages before and totally loved them but now I'm out so I'd love more.  No chocolate please as I'm allergic to it.  A few things I like are sour candy, chewy candy, dutch licorice but I won't turn other kinds away 

Some tea towels with toppers on them so I can hang them from my stove.  Sewn, knit or crochet toppers are great and any color except black for the toppers and white for the tea towels.

I have plans to make this doll http://www.paradisedolls.com/p083.html (except mine will have silver accents rather than gold) and I'm still in the collecting stage so, I'm looking for:
     - any silver charms that would suit this dress (such as scissors, brush, mirror, etc.)
     - silver old fashioned buttons with pearls in the center,

Draft stopper - either a whimsical snowman like this:  http://www.nextag.com/Whimsical-Draft-Stoppers-from-543346002/prices-html?nxtg=e9150a1c0521-B41449EF57A81ED1 or a more plain one like this:  http://www.improvementscatalog.com/product/id/101933.do but in a nice bright material (or material with snowmen or snowflakes on it.  I'm not looking for someone to buy these ones I'm showing, they are just examples of what I'm looking for - it's for my back door so would need to be long enough to block a standard door.

Cross stitch picture featuring a tulip or summer flowers (not too small, please)

Winnie the Pooh, Tigger or Eyeore crocheted in thread (I already have Piglet and he's getting lonely)

I have a very small wist list but feel free to check it out!

A fabric carrier for either a 9x13 pan or a round casserole dish.

I'm looking for something to hang from my gold chain - either a heart, a ring circled with 'diamonds', or a sandal - I don't want charms, I'd rather have something that I can just put the chain through and it would hang loose (hopefully that makes sense - I've seen the diamond ring but it was in silver)  This website:  http://pubcan.fifthavenuecollection.com/shopping/Gallery/Gallery.asp?Gallery=Neckpieces&Page=11&Product=2124 gives an example of the sandal.

An amigurumi teddy bear (really small), penguin or pig (small)

I printed out the October easy square directions and I have a question: What does it mean to dc "around" hdc? I know what dc and hdc are, I just don't get the "around" part. Does that mean don't crochet "into" it (like into the loops at the top of the hdc), but kind of "over/under" it?

Read back at the end of page 9 and beginning of page 10 - this exact question is answered there.
4876  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / What happened to the International Crochet Swap? on: May 24, 2007 02:52:08 PM
Not sure if this is the proper place to ask this or not but I can't find a swap I was keeping my eyes on.

Anyone know what happened to the International Crochet Swap (I know the name was longer but that's all I remember of it right now)?

4877  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Just One Thing Swap Gallery on: May 24, 2007 02:42:53 PM
I'll show them since I remembered to take pictures.

It's a BAG!!! for when she goes visiting  Grin   Big enough for the essentials but not big enough that it looks like she is moving in.

I wanted to use black material but since I didn't have enough of one kind, I made it 2 sided.  The handles are nylon.

Side one,


Side two,

What about a simple one like this:


If you used variegated colors you could get the same affect.
4880  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: recommendations, please on: May 24, 2007 02:22:49 PM
I've been crocheting for over 30 years and so I think I can give you a few recommendations.

I'd start with something simple like a dishcloth (simple patterns can be found on the back of some cotton yarn wrappers.) 
I agree with Jase that a kids beginner book would also be a good place to start.

One of the most important things, I think, is to try to always crochet with the same tension.  If you start a project, leave it for a few days and start again but don't pay attention to your tension, your item will either grown wider or shrink smaller.

Personally, I don't worry about gauge unless I'm making something to wear.  I find that if you want a project to be larger, just use a larger hook and vice versa.

The most important thing though, is to have fun!
