1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Thread crochet on: July 08, 2004 09:44:15 PM
I really like to do thread crochet, but I can't find any hip patterns. I don't really like to crochet garments and I am definitely not into doilies! I am working on the "heirloom bedspread" from Darsha Capaldi's book New Ideas for Crochet. It's a damn good thing that its an heirloom, because I won't finish it until I am on my death bed. I have made 4 squares and it calls for something like 650 squares!

Any way, I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions for inventing new projects.

Thanks!

Hi everyone. I have finally figure the mother out...

Quote from first post:
We recently moved into a larger house and had zero art to adorn all of the walls. So I said, "Hell, if they do it on Trading places, you can too." I purchased plain cheapy canvases (12.00 - 20.00) from Michael's Arts and Crafts and used left over house paint (interior latex - but I don't think it natters) and a starter set of acrylics that I bought at a gararge sale for $2.00. If you are especially handy, you could "stretch" your own canvas over a simple wooden frame and it would be cheaper.

The first painting took three tries. If you don't like the way the painting turned out, you can wait for it to dry, sand lightly with 220 grit sandpaper and repaint.

Here are the results:

Hi everyone. Here is an updated URL for my site. I entered the wrong URL. DER.

This is my first post. I am sooo glad I found crafster. You guys are so witty and creative. I am just discovering my creative side. I'm a WAHM (Work at home mom) with a little too much time on my hands.

Anyhooo....we recently moved into a larger house and had zero art to adorn all of the walls. So I said, "Hell, if they do it on Trading places, you can too."

Hi,

I'm so lonely here in Jacksonville.... with no one to knit/crochet, or otherwise craft, with. I would like to start a local Stitch-N-Bitch. Anyone interested?
