Jaloux--you are such a talented and wise young woman yourself! So adorable and funny!  I NEVER watch videos, but I watched yours...partly because I am lucky to know KLKing as a friend as well!

That was one exceptional bag and I sure learned some things that I want to do on some bags I make in the future!!!

But, you are correct:  Each person has talents and different levels of experiences...there is no "right" or "wrong" thing, just different!  And, thank goodness for that!  I have found each bag here to represent each person in a different way...and as long as your heart is in making it for a partner that you got to know a bit, and you did your best with your skills and resources, then, that is all that counts, really!

With that said, I thing all of the people and bags in this swap are, as greeen r my tears said: AMAZING!!!!!

I wish I had the time to try each one---like the embroidery---the backpack...the water bottle carrier...the lovely purple bag (I love it!)...

I swear we craftsters are the busiest people in the whole world!  I am amazed at how much get done in a day...I just saw the crafts that were posted in the 50 projects CAL I am in...everyone works, is a mom, goes to school, has relationships, and crafts....wow

oh wow deeder--congrats on your soon to be baby!! You look fine and pregnant! Cheesy

You do seem to have lots of energy...and yes, cooking counts if it is new!!!  Cooking is a full blown project for me...I just am not good at it but I do like to eat!

astormurray--lovely lovely yarn...

Dang, tsm--one of those bracelets would take me a week!  I did make three wallets last night in about two hours...I am fastest at sewing and then crocheting...my biggest problem is finishing all the little steps..cutting the threads, weaving in, etc.

Lillianpearl--that scarf is wonderful--I keep saying that I am going to try to make a loom...I just love the look of woven items...I swear laughing lark is my craftster crush in that area! Have you seen all the stuff she weaves? wow

What will you do with the t-shirt yarn--weave it?

It is so warm looking and fun!

Technically, it ain't a quilt unless it is quilted--that is, the layers stitched together in some fashion with a thread using a quilting stitch...small tiny stitches, by hand or machine...not buttons! Wink

Patchwork is sewing bits of fabric together to make a larger piece; patchwork is not a quilt unless, it is stitched to other layers (batting, whatever)...

Yours would technically be a throw or blanket...but who cares...it is nice! and it is done and it is destashed! Cheesy

You come up with the cleverest ways to use up mish mash stuff!  I love your new quilt! The back adds a nice contrast to the dark front...also, looks warm warm warm (can you tell I am hating this spring snowstorm we got? Grin)

I also love the argyle card! Nice job brackish!

I keep forgetting we have themes...

oh thanks!  I think it is just adorable!

I definitely need to know how to crochet a crown!  And a rainbow one, to boot!

Who was your crafty very important partner? Or is she suppose to be incognito? Wink

13548  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Patchwork Sampler Blanket/Pillow Knitalong! on: March 08, 2011 09:34:31 AM
Such lovely pieces...to be honest, I just popped in to see the finished blanket, KLKing Cheesy!

You are so awesome in your skills and sharing of patterns and tips!

Yofi--I am just blown away at how many ways to stitch...I don't think I will ever be able to just knit and purl again!!!

Some sad news:  I knit two pillow covers, one using a diamond pattern and one using a basketweave pattern...it appears that two of my cats have secretly been gnawing on them for who knows how long....they were on a couch that I rarely use...I went to move them and was horrified to find them all frayed and unraveling!!!! oh well...I guess it means I need to work on some more with some new and better stitches you guys have done!! (and hide the pillows from the cats!)

Do you think it was something about the yarn that they liked?  They rarely chew or scratch on anything in the whole house!  It was plain old Vanna White acrylic!
13549  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: ACTIVE - "Beyond The Square" Motifs CAL on: March 08, 2011 09:28:16 AM
I am still lurking...have been busy with the birthday swaps and a couple of the craftalongs...I did get new yarn, which makes me happy...I am torn between knitting and crocheting (don't know how you are doing both, kittymom13!!!)..

Lovely motifs...very inspiring...I have a Steven Madden inspired crochet scarf on my list of things to make that could use a few of those motifs!

I promise I will not join any swaps in April! Cheesy
