5641  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: The Great Craftster Scavenger Hunt Swap Round 2 - Signup 8/28-9/11~Send 10/24 on: August 28, 2006 07:14:10 AM
Oh, I'm so in!  I've been watching the discussions for this swap and just patiently (not!!) waiting for signups to begin.  I can't wait to see the list and start collecting items.
5642  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong (w/pattern links) on: August 27, 2006 09:31:17 PM
I will choose 2 patterns for 12" crochet squares each month, post the links here and then participants can choose to make one or both of them.  By the end of 12 months, you should have enough squares for either a lap afghan (if you make 1 per month) or larger (if you make both per month)

I will try to pick squares of differing difficulties so that newbies and experienced crocheters can participate.

Since this is a craftalong, there is no need to sign up or send me anything saying you're going to participate, however, I would love to see pictures of the squares you have made (post them in this thread.)

Most important is to HAVE FUN! and, if you have any questions or need assistance, either post your question here or PM me and I'll see what I can do to help.

funny how photographing that crochet square you totally lose the pattern  Roll Eyes

I took at least a dozen pictures of that square in all different places of the house and on different backgrounds to get it to show better but that's the best of them all and it doesn't do justice  Grin

I'm finally getting to post pictures of the items lasandri sent me for this swap - sorry it took so long  Grin

This is a knit dishcloth and it has a tulip stitched into it (which is one of my seasonal themes in my kitchen)


a beautiful crochet square for my ongoing afghan (it looks much better in real life).  It's made up of 9 smaller squares and Lasandri said it's the first square she's made and I think it's great!

THANKS for both items!

My hubby collects hot sauces and it's pretty hard to find them up here in Canada so for this swap I thought I would see if anyone would help me collect some for him.  Tofuttibreak, way down in Texas, picked that wish and they made it undamaged.

When I was opening the package, he happened to walk into the kitchen and asked what I was doing.  I told him it was stuff from a craft swap and it was actually something for him.  He gave me this strange look but as soon as I started unrolling one of the bottles, I think he figured out what it might be.

The first one I opened was a clear liquid with chili peppers and garlic floating in it and to say he was thrilled would be an understatement.  Then I opened 2 more!  He was so pleased and couldn't believe that I had done that for him.  So, enough rambling - here's the picture:

THANKS tofuttibreak for helping me make my hubby happy!

4 days ago I went to the mail box and there was a big, puffy package in it from my secret FOC.  I took the package home, opened it, turned it over, gave it a little shake and out popped 2 items.  The first was this:

a beautiful tote bag (I love the colors).  The second was a little purple knit hat - hmmmmmm, I wondered, why in the world would she/he send me this (it's a little small for my sons  Grin )  Then I decided I should find out what the bulge was that was still in the bag.  Well, I quickly found out who the little hat was for:

The worlds best knit snowman ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  He's so adorable and cuddly and I can't wait until I can display him with all my winter stuff - he's certainly going to be a great addition.

THANK YOU so much secret FOC for this FANTASTIC package!

The only change I would make is to the eyes (like Stef in Stitches said) - a different color might make him/her look more cheerful.  Maybe something with the same color as the mane.

Otherwise, it's great!

Decided I couldn't pass this one up - so I've sent my information in and am just waiting to be approved  Grin

Great job!  I love the colors you used.

I agree with ilovepaper, you should make some more baby quilts and you could even use the same pattern with different fabrics and no one would even realize they were the same  Grin
