tazzell just sent me a fantastic package! First, a gorgeous stencilled thistle on a t-shirt. The pic doesn't do it justice- it's a coppery metallic color on a light aqua shirt. Gorgeous!

Next, a fabulous owl cable potholder! I love the owl cable and I have needed more potholders. It's terrific!

And finally, a cross-stiched owl made by her daughter. She made one for the last round of the Owl Swap, and I fell in love with it. It is just so cute! She kindly stitched another one for me!

Thanks, Taz (and your DD)! I love it all!

Well, it turns out that I didn't have to leave today after all, and I was finally able to upload my pics!

The very large box Al came home in...

Al in his space ship!

The fantastic Space Travel Kit! Loaded with ID tags, a travel log, map, lanyard and cherry lip balm!

Al's Bollywood Video outfit! Plus a few more souvenirs, including a little alien in a Santa suit!

A whole bunch of cool souvenirs from Seattle!

An Emergency Hull Repair Patch, which Al could really use! Unfortunately, I couldn't get a clear picture of it. I'll try again later and replace it if I get a better one.

And finally, the photo album with all of Al's pics plus a few more items from his trip!

Thanks so much for being my partner Kiki! It was a blast! And don't forget, Kimi's delayed luggage will be on the way soon Wink

I didn't have to leave today and, I can finally upload my pics!

So, here's another shot of the lovely beaded crochet apple (apple for the teacher Wink ), plus  some bonus tea lights- the package smelled wonderful when I opened it! Thanks Pia!

Wow! There are some amazing pics on here. I'm impressed! And worried that mine won't be any good...

I received my frame and film from LouraPalmr the other day and I picked up the pics today. The frame is a neat mix of tissue collage (I think) and seashells. I took about 10 pictures of it and I couldn't get decent ones...and I don't know why...

In any case, here it is:

And here are a few of my favorite pics...there were more, but I couldn't post all of the favorites Wink

And, I opened a flickr account for the whole batch. I hope it works...I still have to figure out how to rotate pics in flickr...

Okay, I have another one! Again, not a pattern on the list, but I wanted to try out something with a chart. I originally wanted to do a tapestry crochet, but I was too lazy to learn how to reverse crochet.

I got the chart for the seahorse (I hope you could tell that it was a seahorse) from here:

It's not perfect, but it was a learning experience, and I gave it to my mom and she loved it, so that's all that matters!

So now I am 2/50! Slowly but surely...

I picked up a bunch of yarn last week, but school has started and my crafting time has been chopped drastically. And, this week, I've been so exhausted when I get home that I can't even think about crochet!

Before things got crazy, I did have a chance to write out the pattern for my first dishcloth. I posted it here along with the pattern:

Here is a pic...it isn't perfect since I kept getting distracted. I think I added a couple of stitches near the end or at the very beginning...but it isn't too bad.

So now I am officially 1/50!

417  Road Trip Dishcloth in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: August 29, 2007 05:42:41 PM
While traveling in relative comfort (I was sitting in a nice comfy chair in an RV) on a recent road trip, I was amazed to find that I didn't get car sick when I crocheted and so I crocheted a dishcloth. Of course, if I had gotten carsick, I would have had a dishcloth handy to clean up the mess...

Introducing, "The Road Trip Dishcloth!" I made it with Sugar N' Creme cotton yarn (I bought it on a cone and I no longer have the label for the color). I don't remember what hook size I used, but it was probably an I or a J.

It isn't anything fancy, and I made the pattern up as I went along (but it could already exist somewhere...it isn't very original Wink ). Here it is if you are interested! And, as a warning, I've never written out a pattern before, so if it doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll try to clarify. I wrote it out after I finished, but I think it's right Wink

"Road Trip Dishcloth"

Ch 27
Row 1: Sk 2 ch (counts as 1st hdc); hdc across (26 hdc total)
Row 2: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc); hdc across (26 hdc total)
Row 3: Repeat row 2
Row 4: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc); hdc in next st, ch 1, sk next stitch; (2 hdc, ch 1, sk next st) across, ending with 2 hdc (8 sets of 2 hdc, ch 1, sk next st plus 2 hdc)
Rows 5-7: Repeat row 2
Row 8: Repeat row 4

Repeat rows 5-8 until desired length, ending with a row 7.

For border: hdc around, with 2 hdc in each corner.

I did a total of 23 rows (5 sets of the pattern repeat, ending with 3 rows of hdc)

Well, I was too tired tonight to do anything that required too much thinking, so I made two of these. They were so easy and quick! Just what I needed- an instant gratification craft!! I'll definitely be making more of these. And, I'm going to grab a stack of recycled paper off of my desk at work and use that for the inside pages.

The Zebra Cakes one was first, and then I made the Fiddle Faddle one second. I think I need to plan the layout a bit better (although the Fiddle Faddle one was a bit better). Guess I'll have to eat more junky snack foods!!

While I was working on Kimi's pics, I figured that I would post one. Does this look familiar, Gizmonic? Wink

I got my first ornament today and it is so cute! amor_fati sure is speedy! Wink

I love snowmen, since I can keep snowmen things on display all winter, and the ornament ball is a gorgeous shade of blue. Thanks so much!
