271  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ADORABLE needle case project that I love love love! on: October 27, 2006 07:38:44 AM
<squeal and clap hands here>
I just got this in Berrocos latest KnitBits e-newsletter - and I love this project - there is a knit one and a crochet hook one:

Here is the crochet one for those interested in both!

272  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / GarnStudio, Drops Design notice in e-mail on: October 22, 2006 06:52:16 AM
I posted a message in Knitting about an e-mail notice I got from the Garnstudio site about new developments in their pattern site:

I got an e-mail from them stating they have translated all the patterns from catalogues 96-98 (as opposed to just some) to English.  Watch out for British vs. North American terminology in most of the patterns.  Also to check the site out frequently because they are in the process of translating and posting their "Silver Medal" patterns.  These are apparently patterns that did not make the final cut for the published catalogues.

Here is the link they provided:

274  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / What is this??? on: October 21, 2006 04:41:28 PM
I got this as part of some misc. items from a friend who got a bunch of stuff when her neighbour passed away - from one crafter, to another, to another.

I'm not sure, but is this a bodkin?

Both ends look like this





It is stainless steel, about 4.25" long, and the eyes are 1/16" wide, and 3/16" long at the opening.
275  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Some stitch markers I made on: October 21, 2006 04:36:42 PM
Combining so many crafts I love - wire and bead stitch holders for when I knit or crochet!

I made these while on vacation so I could keep count of a graph pattern for a scarf I was making.  I had a lot of my beading materials with me, and these were some glass beads that I had from when I made wire and bead bookmarks for gifts one year.  Then because they were so pretty, I just kept making more and more.





A set of six in total that open and close



pairs and singles with closed rings

276  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Some more ornament covers/toppers - now with *IMAGE HEAVY* tutorial on: October 20, 2006 10:35:05 AM
These are more ornament toppers than covers as they only sit at the top, around the hanger bit:

277  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Here comes the snow again - updated with new pics (fully finished ornament) on: October 20, 2006 10:33:03 AM
Here are some beaded snowflakes I made recently with fire polished crystals, and seed beads.  They are about 2 inches by 2 inches, and I may string them in the middle of rings that I wrap in ribbon or beads, with a hanger for ornaments.


White with blue


another white with blue

This pattern was in the latest issue of Bead and Button

Here they are in how I finally decided to utilize them as ornaments.  I strung them up inside a ring (a silver toned bangle - 12 for $3 - then I opened the package and found they were interlocked - cut 8 open to remove them and used bead glue - fantastic stuff - to glue the ends back together), then wrapped the bangle in satin ribbon, making a loop to hang with.







I liked the idea of putting them into some kind of ring to frame them - gave them more substantiality and more focus.
278  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / So excited - new craft purchases! on: October 20, 2006 10:24:17 AM
I went to the big fall craft festival in Toronto last night and picked up supplies and info for two new crafts that I have not done before - needle felting and punch needlework/bunka.  So excited!

IMG]http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n41/NoxRN/DSC00451.jpg[/IMG]
Some patterns for the punch needlework


the instruction booklet with the needle for the needlework (also bought a good hoop to go with it too)




the two kits for the needlefelting!

In general I was dissappointed in the show - smaller and less dynamic than fall ones in the past, and several booths I was hoping would be there were not - like a couple of my favourite beading booths.  I was really hoping on finding a decent, wood hairpin lace loom - none in site, except the small dinky Clover ones.  Also - no great deals on yarn or fabric, like the year before, and more non-craft trade booths (like for emu oil and crystal nail files - ick).  Also, there were supposed to be some booths where you were supposed to pay a small fee for charity, to make and take some crafts - barely anything last night.  Hopefully things improve for the weekend.

I am jazzed about the things I got though.
In case anyone is in Toronto, it is the olde Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival, now called Creativfestival or somesuch, at Convention Centre near the CN tower - it is there until after this weekend.
279  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Looking for a template on: October 20, 2006 08:44:32 AM
I want to make a graph of the Orange County Choppers logo and title - but before I do, does anyone know if there is one out there already.  I need it for making a toque and scarf set for a friend, or emboidering/cross-stitching a gift for him.
280  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / tis the season coming up - Christmas door decor anyone? on: October 19, 2006 06:59:32 AM
I was laying in bed and suddenly an idea hit me about how to decorate the door for Christmas (or whatever you celebrate in that time frame - it's Christmas here because of DH - I just go with the crafting, making of food, giving of gifts, good will to all on principle) this year - and I wondered if that would make a good challenge?
