5341  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - STARTED! on: October 16, 2006 06:15:32 PM
More wonderful squares!

tmd, it looks like you and I had the same idea - I, too, used a dark purple for the easy square (really, it's not blue like it looks)


On a different note - I am amazed at how many of you used multiple colors for the easy square.  When I first started picking out patterns for October, I decided to keep the easy one simple and tried to find a pattern with only one color.  Then, I decided that for November, we would try 2 colors on the easy square and get some experience changing colors, however, it's obvious most of you know about color changes!

I also received a wonderful cross stitch snowman from esmerelda - it's her own design and, if I remember correctly, the first thing she has designed!

Isn't he cute  Shocked

I received from irid3sc3nt last week but since I'm having computer troubles at home, it's taken this long to get pictures posted from hubby's office.

She sent me three 12" crochet squares and some chocolates (which my hubby enjoyed very much!)

I claim esmerelda for:

1. Amigurumi animals, especially rabbits, frogs, cats and owls

This is my 1st claim.

I'm in Alberta, Canada.

Yesterday (the 12th) my hubby and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary and I thought it would be fun to make a list of items he might like and surprise him with something.  So, here's my "I love my husband and want to do something nice for him" list!

1)  A t-shirt (men's large) with an M&M candy or the M&M man stenciled on the front of it (large or small figure is fine)

2)  A t-shirt (men's large) with something Coke related stenciled or embroidered on the front (large or small 'thing' is fine)

3)  A butcher style apron (adult large) in a masculine fabric -he likes tools, wildlife, red, blue or black)  (I'm tired of seeing him wearing my aprons when he wears one)

4)  He loves doing carpentry as a hobby and I thought a cross stitch picture would be fun - I would like it to say 'So many tools, so little time' and also have some tools on it.

5)  He collects hot sauce (3-5 oz. bottles) and any interesting or unique looking ones to add to his collect would be wonderful.

6)  He really likes peanut M&Ms, macaroons, Oh Henry bars and jelly belly jellybeans and I know he would appreciate a goodie box containing these (and even other chocolate items).

Okay, that's my list - it was hard coming up with 6 items - and I hope someone can find something on it to help me surprise my wonderful hubby.  However, if I stall this list, I guess I will have to add some of my own stuff, but I hope it doesn't come to that!

a 2007 calendar/magnet with the state of alberta (her state)

I don't think you forgot anything veludo - I just have to make a small correction to what you wrote.  Alberta is my province, we don't have states in Canada  Grin

Now that's a 'shroom that even my 'shroom 'hating' family would love.  The hedgehog just makes it tons better!  Great job!

I love the squares everyone has made, not sure mine will be as good though as I haven't been crocheting for very long.

It doesn't matter how long you have been crocheting - that's why I picked an easy and experienced square - just do what you think you can.
5348  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Baby Quilt (or "Yellow, Blue and Green All Over") on: October 10, 2006 06:09:31 PM
Beautiful quilt - I love the colors and the tag is a wonderful addition.

Quote from: ChaelaAnne
Here is a quilt I made for my uncle who's having his first kid. (He's not that much older then me, but Grandmother had 14 kids)

I know all about that - my MIL is the youngest of 18 children and has nieces and nephews older than her by many years!

So, now Homerof2 is looking for the fastest crafter prize.  Wink

Now I'm feeling picked on  Embarrassed


I love working on things the minute I get my partners name and find that these swaps with long mailing out times are hard.  I purposely made myself not even start crafting for a week so that I wouldn't get done too early.  Just my nature!

about how much wool does it take to make a square?

Yikes, that's a hard question to answer because it depends on how 'intense' the design is on a square.

I took a look around the internet to see if I could find out how much yarn an average granny square takes and from what I could find, I'd say about 2 ounces of worsted weight per square.
