5361  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - STARTED! on: September 30, 2006 12:44:49 PM
Well, I couldn't wait any longer and since it's my thread, I decided to post a day early  Grin

These are the squares I have picked for the month of October:

Easy:

www.texasdg.net/daynascrochet/pattern.asp?id=22

Experienced:

www.geocities.com/cdjsimon/birthday_flower.html

I have never made the easy one (but plan to) so if you find any problems, be sure to share them.  I have made the experienced one a few times and really like it.  If you want more challenge, be sure to make it with 3 colors.

I am planning to also post each month's patterns on the first page so you can check there the first of each month or if someone starts during another month, they will know what we have done in the past!

Remember to post pictures here when you are finished your square(s)

5362  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 14 on: September 30, 2006 07:27:33 AM
I claim gavagai for:

Nice quality (just normal quality really) thread for sewing machines, fancy like rainbow or metallic, or just ordinary thread of different colours. Please no cotton.

This is my 5th claim (2 have been received and 2 sent)

I'm in Alberta, Canada.

Sewing

A tablecloth (70" x 50") with a snowflake, sunflower or leaf themed fabric.

I'd love a plush teddy bear - around 12" would be great!

A butcher style apron (adult large) with no pockets (see my likes below for fabric ideas.)

A knitting apron like this:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/msg971894 but with different fabric.

9x13 cake pan carrier, with handles

Quilting

12” squares for a craftster quilt - I like pretty rather than creepy - any colors or patterns are fine but if you need ideas, check out this website:  http://www.quilterscache.com/BlocksbySizeC.html

Crochet

Eeyore, Pooh or Tigger crocheted in thread - I already have Piglet and he's getting lonely for his friends.  (I can supply the pattern)

Other

A t-shirt (man's x-large) with an M&M character stenciled on the front (it's for my hubby who loves M&Ms)

I like watches that have 'fun' designs on the face or in the band.

Something from your country (preferrably not Canada or the US.)

If you want to throw in an extra with any of the above wishes, I'm looking for pens with cool, wacky designs on them.  The more outlandish they are, the less likely someone is to steal them when I work!

I have themes in my house each season so I like things made with sunflowers, tulips, scarecrows, snowmen or snowflakes.  I also like dark green and dark blue.

I think its just called a stuffed animal Cheesy haha

Oh sure, burst my bubble   Embarrassed

I've had a gazillion 'stuffed animals' in my life and not one of them has been made of crochet, so I say it's an amigurumi  Grin

I hope it is not to late too join.I love making afghans.Thank you

Not late at all!

In fact, I hope that once this gets started we will pick up others (once they see pictures of the wonderful squares we are making.)  I'm part of the quilt square craft along that only has 3 months to go and people are still joining and catching up.

He's adorable and, IMO, much cuter than the original in the pattern - I think it's the colors you used  Grin

Click on this:

Swan

and it will take you to the pattern - but remember, mine has changes.

Miss Betty Orange is adorable and reminds me of my friend!

While they look nothing alike, my friend would spend her Sunday listening to the same music and watching the same movies  Grin
5368  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Swan (amigurumi?) on: September 29, 2006 07:42:14 AM
I'm not sure if this really qualifies as an amigurumi since it's so large but that's what I am calling it.

In one of the Ongoing Wish Swaps, I chose to make someone a large amigurumi thinking it would be easy to find patterns.  Well, I quickly learned that was not true.  In my mind, an amigurumi should be made totally of single crochet and most large animals I found, weren't.  So when I saw this swan and realized it was totally single crochet, that's the pattern I chose.

It's a little different that the original since I could not get the whole mouth section to look proper according to the pattern.  So, I modified the pattern to what I thought looked best.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome!

I have an possible explanation for the mysterious items llenray sent to AliBeachGrl:

Is it possible, llernay, that someone sent you swap items in that same box and you missed taking everything out before using the box to send your items to AliBeachGrl ? ? ?
