6741  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: A Jar of Mini Whimsies Swap (Sign-ups ENDING EARLY 3/30, send-outs 4/23) on: March 30, 2008 10:05:51 AM
Oh my! I'm worried about filling a pint jar and you guys are on to gallons! Eeek! OF course, I haven't started putting stuff in my jar yet. I may run out of room quickly, too...
6742  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: *Tutorial* on Paper Piecing *Extra pattern + tut added!* on: March 30, 2008 09:25:31 AM
I made a paper pieced pillow a while back, and I remember it being very tricky, at first. I never thought to cut out the pieces first! I was just using random scraps...and sometimes they didn't lay right after I stitched them on. Cutting the pieces out first would probably help with that.

Thanks for such a clear tutorial!

It may have been a lot of work, but I think it's worth it! I can think of about 10 other things I'd use it for...and that's just in about 30 seconds of thinking!

Those are fantastic! How did you carve such a detailed image? I'd love to be able to carve something that stunning looking!
6745  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Re: First Weaving Attempt & Homemade Loom on: March 29, 2008 03:22:36 PM
I am so impressed with this, and I totally want one! I used to work in a weaving mill during my college summers and, aside from the heat and the noise...and the heat...and the noise, it was pretty cool! I've always wanted to learn how to weave but don't have the cash for a loom. I have a square frame loom, but I'm pretty limited with what I can do on it.

I'd love it if you could give me some more details on how you made this- I have a Home Depot gift card to use up and this could be just the thing for that!

Fantastic idea!

Yay! Another person joining in! I felt like such a slacker when it first started- everyone was going like gang-busters! So, I'm glad folks are joining in. You'll all probably pass me, but I'll stick with it and suck in even more folks Wink

And, makeene, I sent you a PM!

I was on a field trip today and I got an item to put into the jar...and one for myself, too. I'm a bit worried that once I start gathering up stuff and putting it into a jar, it'll look so sweet that I won't want to part with it  Tongue 

Ahh...the curse of being a hoarder...

I still consider myself a beginner, too. I learned ages ago from my aunt, but I didn't really do anything beyond a few sample stitches. Then, a few years ago, I picked it up again, and quickly put it back down Wink Since joining Craftster, I've re-learned yet again and I just love it...and am kicking myself for many wasted years...

But, I've been told I hold the hook incorrectly. It works for me, though Wink
6749  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 50+ Wash Cloths-along on: March 26, 2008 08:36:51 PM
I thought that it looked hard too, and when I first tried the cluster stitch, I didn't get it. Then I just forged ahead and it seemed to work okay. The pattern has a lot of chains in it, so it goes pretty quickly!

And, Al was the stuffie that I sent in the Little Visitor Swap 7 . kikigirl, my partner made 3 great videos of him and posted them on YouTube. He's become mildly famous in certain circles. Wink After the swap ended, gizmonic, another LVS7 swapper made up a bunch of buttons with pics of Al and sent them to some members of his "fan club." One of them said "Al-ette Fan Club."

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.
