This bag is so neat looking! I love your idea of putting holes and eyelets into the fabric and then crocheting into them. I may have to try this on a smaller scale.

littlebluegirl- I really like the button necklace, and Im not a huge fan of buttons Wink The plushies are cute and the drawings are amazing! As for what you sent, I love the sketchbook! The cat cloth is cute, as is the felted clutch. The dreamcatcher is pretty- it looks tiny, thoughis it?

Thanks, balkandina and babbetto for the encouragement!

As for what to make the stamps out of, maybe we could have "traditional" stamps, but have an option to add in a cork stamp or an impression stamp or two as a bonus.

Oooooh...you're starting to scare me off! I'm more of a beginnner when it comes to carving...

But I still want to do it!

I'll be on Christmas break, and, theoretically I should be done with all of my Christmas gifts, so I'll have plenty of time to carve!

Holy moly, this sounds delicious!! It sounds like a lot of worth, but it also sounds like it would be worth the effort!

But, what are panko bread crumbs? Crumbs made out of panko bread? I don't know what panko bread is... Wink  Off to do a search...

ETA: Ahh, now I know! I'll have to look in the Asian section of the grocery store...

Thank you so much for starting this! And, a double thank you for posting links to tutorials!!

I had bought the Stitch N' Bitch book for the needle roll pattern because I had planned to make one for my SIL for Christmas. Then, I was going to give her the needle roll and the book. But, when I saw her knitting this weekend, she was using circular needles, and I didn't think to ask if she used straight needles. So, since I know she uses circulars, I'm going to make her one of those instead. So, in the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting a completed needle roll! Wink

And, all of the ones that you folks have completed so far are lovely and inspiring! Maybe when I'm done with my SIL's, I'll make myself a crochet hook roll...much needed it is!

Whoo-hoo! Thanks so much for the pattern! Now, instead of making my sister-in-law a needle roll (since I'm not sure if she uses straight needles or circulars), I think I'm going to make her this scarf instead. Thanks again!

craftADDchick: It's a celosia. I love those flowers! They remind me of coral. I love your pic.

Thanks for the info (and the compliment)! I saw the flower one day, and almost missed the bus the next day because I was too busy taking pictures.

Even better, Celosia is also known as Cock's Comb. I used a dark burgundy variety of it in my wedding flowers (alongside orange circus roses and pink dahlias). It looked awesome (I'll dig up some pictures), but  got quite a few raised eyebrows when people asked what it was and I cheerfully chirped, "Cock's Comb!"

Ooooh! I bet it looked beautiful! And, thanks for the common name info. I'll have to look it up to see if I can grow it around here (central MA).

And, I love looking at all of these beautiful photos!! Makes me long for spring...

Okay, I had to post one! I took this picture at an RV park just outside of Washington, D.C. this summer. I have no idea what it is, but it was so funky looking!
