361  Re: A Jar of Mini Whimsies Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: April 25, 2008 11:51:57 AM
After a morning of sitting at the car dealers waiting for them to fix my car, it was such treat to come home to find a box of whimsies waiting for me! My partner, kristen219, spoiled me with a couple of extras, too!

Stuffed into the jar:

And some close-ups:

Cool fabric, mini notecards, stickers (butterflies and pirates!), furry green fabric (future mini-monster), cherry appliques and a vintage-y postcard plaque.

A bunch of very cool beads and charms to make stuff with! I love the key and the heart! And, the purple polymer beads are very cool (did you make them, Kristen?) and will be turned into earrings, I think Wink

A mini manicure set, more cute emery boards, sticky notes, beads, awesome paper clips, cute little buttons (check out the colored pencil ones), little notebook paper charms, a thimble, a duck (probably one of my favorite items, for some inexplicable reason), a bear rubber stamp, pretty binder clips, a bejeweled hair clip, a mini bottle of Tylenol, and some felt stick-on numbers and letters.

And, a shot of a very pretty bracelet! It's so perfect for Spring!

Thanks, Kristen! I hope you like your whimsies as much as I like mine! Thanks for being my partner!  Grin

I finally finished weaving in my ends so here's my April square! I'm not sure I'm lovin' the rose and peach combo, but maybe I just need to use the rose a bit more. Anyway, here it is in all of it's glory Wink

And, this weekend, I'll be working on the May '07 square so when May '08 rolls around, I should be ready!

Still pluggin' along! Here is my April square! I've wanted to make this one since I first saw it, but I'm staying true to the course and doing them in order. Love it! Definitely on the "do again" list!

Yup! You guys were right! And, it looks like it's a female. Here's the other shot I mentioned. This is the male:

It's also called an eastern tiger swallowtail.

365  Macro Photo Challenge: Butterfly Feeding in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by craftADDchick on: April 20, 2008 08:06:26 PM
I took this picture of a butterfly (anyone know what kind?) feeding on a flower. I got right in close and it never moved!

I think my camera is partial to outside nature shots in close-up. Anything I try to photograph inside never comes out well. This is probably one of my favorite pictures!

366  Pop Top Tab Granny Square in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: April 20, 2008 02:27:18 PM
Inspired by pesky pixie's post and the included tutorial, I made a pop top granny square of my own!

I essentially followed her tutorial, but then added another round to finish it off. It came out a little wavy, but A) it was just a practice one and B) it isn't blocked. If it stays wavy, I may use only 3 dc in each of the chains around, instead of 5.

To do my additional round, I did:
5 dc in each 5 ch sp (this is what I might need to change to 3 dc)
1 dc in the dc between each 5 ch sp

In the 5 sc crochet in the corners, I did:
1 dc in each of the first 2 sc
2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the 3rd sc
1 dc in each of the last 2 sc

Now to start collecting more pop top tabs so I can make some more Wink

It's the Octagon Dishcloth (which, oddly enough, looks more circular than some of the circles I've made) made with Sn'C Summer Twists. It ripples quite a bit, and I don't know why. Smaller hook, or larger hook needed? And, it came out a bit bigger than I like, so the next time I make one, I'll stop at round 8. But, my mom liked the color, so she gets it...

Sorry if the pic is blurry- I couldn't get a well-focused shot!

I finished another one! Time to kill between meetings/tutoring/dinner and I was able to finish the Pink Shells pattern. I liked it a lot better before I put the edging on. Next time, since I hate doing the edges anyway, I'll leave it off. It's Sn'C Beach Ball Blue (I think).

Next up: Open Shell Dishcloth followed by Puff X Square

I finished another one! 9/50 now. This is the Fire Blossom in Sn'C Country Sage Ombre (the pattern called for red, but I didn't have any). It ripples quite a bit, so I may use a smaller hook (highly unusual for me) the next time I make one. The pic is a bit blurry, but it shows the color pretty well.

Holey Moley, who is this person?!? I finished the Falling Leaves! That makes #8! I've made more in the last week than in the last 3 months combined! Still not as fast as most, but pretty darn quick for me Wink

I used Sn'C in Shades of Green (same as my Face Cloth), and I was amazed that I had enough yarn. This cloth works up pretty quick (1 1/2 loads of laundry and it was done!), so it's on my list of keepers.
