Yes, this swap is still going until I start the next round, which will be when Homerof2 receives my package.

Which may be 2 weeks with how 'quickly' US Post and Canada Post are working lately!

My thought on making the stem was to take a 1" piece of fabric and iron it in half, open it up, fold in the sides and iron those in, then fold it back in half again (like bias tape, just not on the bias).

Great minds think alike!  That's exactly what I did for my stem  Shocked

I made this scarecrow out of a baseball (not one that belonged to my sons, no way! Mom had to buy her own!)

It's resting on a cardboard ring which I covered in fabric so it looks like a plaid shirt, complete with bow tie.  Then I topped it off with some straw, a straw hat and flowers.

Okay, quicker than I thought, I can post pictures.  Hubby had to go back to the office tonight so I came along.



Yet another bright square and more green!!!!!!!!!!!

I received a thank you item from princessblueberry today.  Some wonderful fabric!



I didn't realize until I went to post this picture that taking it so close up was going to make it look more like burlap rather than the great fabric it really is.

Thanks! princessblueberry!!

I received my OTT from evildeadgirl today (actually I have to call it my TTT because she actually sent 2 items).

The sweetest coin purse and a wonderful bracelet that's made with elastic!


Aren't the frogs so cute!


The bracelet is much better in person and the perfect color of green for me!

THANKS so much!!!!!!!

I finished one October square (no, I'm not a super achiever, I just had a little time this morning while I was waiting for my pumpkin to bake).

I made the Sweet Gum Leaf and I will raise my hat to anyone who can make the stem like the directions tell you to!  I certainly couldn't.  You are supposed to start with a 1" piece, fold it in 1/2, sew it with a 1/4" seam and then turn it - good luck - I tried all sorts of ways and couldn't succeed in turning it so I did it my own way  Grin

I'll try to post pictures this week.

Can anyone advise what "worsted weight" yarn is, and what sort of yarn do people recommend (I am a Brit by the way)?

Worsted weight yarn is 4 ply yarn and that's what I would use (according to some web sites, it's the best weight for afghans.)

If you use anything with fewer strands, the squares will be smaller and lighter in weight.

What a neat belt idea - I've never seen anything like it!
