5421  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 15 on: October 21, 2006 08:13:37 PM
I claim SoonFamo-Artiste for:

*Fabric
Anything Green, Blue, Turtle, or CareBear Theme)

This is my 3rd claim.

I'm in Alberta, Canada and here's my list:

Sewing

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

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

Things for my hubby

My hubby and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary this month 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!

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)

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.

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

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).

Other

Beads - I have being making some jewelry and would like to make more but I need more beads.  Please no plastic!  I like all colors, I like neat shapes and different sizes.

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

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 guess these blocks are supposed to be 12.5" unfinished?  On Quilterscache it says the block is 12".  I know most blocks are 12.5" unfinished.  Anyway...  mine turned out to be a little over 12" so I just trimmed it down.  Oh well, I guess I'll just do that with all the rest and it will work out.  Hopefully!  lol

I, too, trimmed mine down to 12" and I think that's going to work out fine!

Yeah, I'm up for grabs.  Unfortunately I don't have computer access at home right now and have to find other places to get on-line.  So, I'm a little worried that I am going to stall this with my small list - I promise to add tomorrow in the later a.m. if no one has picked me.

After a few days of worrying, thinking this was lost (it took foreeeeeeever), my package from reneecarol has now arrived!

She sent me a really cute little tote bag, a scarf in gorgeous colors and a 'girly' notepad.

I claim reneecarol for:

A little of each of these:

- Funky or retro fabric
- Thimbles and zippers (all colors and sizes)
- Something inspired by my wists (link at bottom)


This is my second claim.

I'm in Alberta, Canada.

My hubby and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary this month 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)  Thanks ChloeisCrazy!!!

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).

I had a very hard time coming up with 6 items and now that one has been picked, I'm going to have to add something that's not specific just to him - so, I've decided to add something that our whole family can enjoy.

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

8 )  A pair of pillow cases (in purple or gold) with our names stitched on them.

I realize this is a short list so if I stall it, I'll add more.

My items have been boxed and ready to go for 9 days and I plan to send them as soon as myself or shylitlegoddess hear from my partner!
5429  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - STARTED! on: October 18, 2006 01:17:27 PM
Quote from: libbybee
but I'm stuck on the easy square at row 2 when it says "dc around half dc" - can anyone help?  I don't understand where to put the hook in to do the dc.

I know that amdm has already answered this but I wanted to highlight her answer again so that everyone sees it and gets it right!

Quote from: amdm
at the end of the first round you made 1 hdc into the 3rd of beginning 3 ch. That hdc formed a loop, which is the corner of the square. You insert your hook into that loop. Hope this helps.     

Be sure to insert the hook INTO the loop!

Quote from: Selise
I'm aiming for a lot of it to be crafted since I really can't afford to spend a whole bundle on goodies and trinkets..

For me, it's not that I can't afford all the goodies and trinkets, I would rather make everything and I end up running out of time!
