7011  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 2008 12" Squares ~ JULY on: July 27, 2008 05:55:11 PM
I finished my June square! But I still have to weave in the ends...

I was at my mom's recuperating from a pulled back muscle and the one thing I grabbed on the way out the door was the yarn and square! I didn't go on to July because I didn't do July '07 yet, and since I'm making such good progress, I'm superstitious about skipping the '07 square Tongue

So, I'll post my June square in a day or two and then I'll be starting on my July squares...quickly followed by August Wink

Everyone's squares are looking great!

Wow! Both of my awesome partners (longtimegeek and Tanza) are way ahead of me! But, I have a legitimate excuse...really!

On Friday the 18th of July, as a reward for surviving the physics class of doom, I went shopping for supplies for my items. I came with a full weekend of crafting joy planned. But, from sitting for about 40 hours listening to physics blah blah blah, my back was killing me! So, I opted to sleep on the futon in the spare room. As I was clearing off the piles of laundry, I leaned and lifted, and pulled out my back. Out of commission for a week! I spent most of it at my mom's, but because of the "meds," I wasn't thinking clearly enough to remember to pack my craft supplies. So, a week of no crafting! Ack!! But now, while still not 100%, at least I'm home, and can craft when I'm up to it...and then take nice long naps Wink

Oh my! So many awesome things up for grabs in this round (as in the last round Wink ). I'll have to start my "Perfect for me" and "Perfect Gift for" list again! So far, everything is perfect for me.

And, I have a brown ami owl just like the blue one being offered. They'd make a lovely couple!!

I am officially off of the pain meds (yay! and thanks for all of the kind words Wink ) and I am home, so I should FINALLY be able to start on Tuesday. I have one other swap to knock out of the park tomorrow and then it is all dotees! Of course, I realized that I gave all of my embroidery floss to my sister, so I'll have to GO SHOPPING!!

Can you tell I've been cooped up in the house, unable to drive for a week!! With no craft supplies, even???

I'm off to check out the gallery...

Okay, tomorrow, I should finally be able to do my crafting! And, for some reason, I thought send-outs were the 28th, so I might actually be able to send on time! Whew! I'm home and off my pain meds (just ibuprofen, now) so I should even be able to craft something decent Wink

Yay!

I've got the materials, now I just need to be home to make my item! I think it should count as a medium...I have a lot of cutting to do...but it might really be a small, so I'll have to add something else to it...I think...

My weekend of crafting got cancelled when I pulled out my back! So, I haven't even begun, although I have some good ideas! I hope to get started this weekend if I'm home (I'm at my mom's getting some TLC). I didn't think to bring any supplies with me...darn those narcotic meds!

Unfortunately, there is a bunch of fabric just hanging around inside. I've been trying to think of a way to eliminate that, but haven't come up with anything besides leaving it unlined and finishing the inside seams with bias tape. I have another version planned, and that's the method I'll be using, I think.

You could try adding little ribbon ties or something to the lining to bundle up the fabric inside. That might work...

Let me know if you come up with a good solution! And, I can't wait to see your finished bag!

My glorious plans for a weekend of crafting were blown away when I pulled my back out on Friday night (lifitng a pile of laundry, of all things- just one more reason why I should remain an "undomesticated goddess"). I completely slept through Sunday! My sister picked me up and brought me to my mom's, and I wasn't thinking clearly enough (darn pain meds) to bring my crafting stuff with me! I'm still planning to be done on time to send, though!
