Wow! I can't believe our time is almost up! Al looks like he is having loads and loads of adventures. I just got back from a trip with Kimi and the planned photo ops that I had just didn't pan out, unfortunately. I did manage to get a few pics, but not what I had hoped. I have one or two more places to take her, and then I really must get started on the scrapbook!!

7073  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - AUGUST on: August 10, 2007 04:28:55 PM
Quote from: Horse Power
So how did you do it ~ with plain single crochet? Did you increase and decrease so you'd get the same number of stitches on each side?

I made one round of double crochet.  I figured out how many stitches would fit evenly along one side and then I made that many on all sides.  On some squares I had to skip stitches to get the right number and on some I had to make 2 dc in one stitch.

Thanks for this bit of info! As I was finishing up a square yesterday (December easy...I was on a very long ride from Washington DC and I finished about an hour before I got home), I realized that my stitch counts would vary on my edges. This will help tremendously once I finally finish! I'll be starting my January easy tonight, I think.

Is anyone else sending brochures of the place they live/visit?

I was thinking about that too! Or maybe making my own "this is what you're looking at" brochure Smiley

This is a neat idea! I was just going to make a list of the things I photographed, but if I have anything that has a "story" behind it, I can add that in, too!

And, I just got back from a trip and was going to photograph my hometown when I got back. And it rained...So, I headed home to my house. I may have another shot on Wednesday, so hopefully the weather is better and I can sneak in a few shots before it gets dark!

Uh-oh! I hope that mine is tiny enough! When it is all coiled up, it is tiny, but it is larger when it is spread out... Huh Wink

Wow! That's a lot of stuff! I'm glad that it's a bag you'll use Wink  Have a great trip!

Thanks for being such a super swap partner!

Whoa, I am feeling a little overwhelmed here.  Not to burst any bubbles or anything but is this a photography swap or a disposable camera swap?  If this has turned into a photography swap I should just post for an angel now!

Although I so love and appreciate the photos that are being posted, please reread and remember what this swap is about.  Surprise photos - not art (lucky for me! ha! Cheesy

Just my 2 cents

I'm in for the camera swap too! I'm no photographer. I've been taking pictures of things that make me laugh or are just too darn pretty to pass up. I don't know if anyone will find "art" from a snapshot of a sign that says "Beer Cups are Recyclable Too!" but hey, you never know what you're going to get out of a swap- right?! I'm just taking pics of the things that make me love my city. I'm not doing any travelling or really going too far out of my way.
Don't get a swap angel, you'll be fine!

I agree with you guys! I think it'll be fun to see what we get. I'm sticking to film (not a disposable camera, though- I still own a camera that uses film Wink ). Not finding out what the pictures are like until the pics are developed was half the reason I signed up for this swap Wink

I'm leaving tomorrow morning on a trip and won't be able to take any pictures until I get back! I will be returning to the place where I want to take my pics, so depending on what time we get back, I may be able to take my pictures then. Otherwise, I'll have to drive down another day. It's a very photogenic little town.

atomeve received her bag from me the other day. She said she was re-packing it as her carry-on bag, so I'm guessing she's on a trip! Wink

I figured I'd post pics of the bag I sent (atomeve, if you have better ones...).

She loves brown and pink, brown and blue, brown and just about anything and she is also a big fan of pockets. She also loves messenger bags, but hates to make them...


The front and the back (the back has one large pocket-hard to see in the pic):

Under the flap (lots of pockets):

Inside (more pockets, and a zipper compartment)

I had a lot of fun making this bag! I didn't use a pattern, and sort of made it up as I went. I only had to rip out one seam!

My mouth fell open when I read what they did. That's just about the rudest thing I've ever heard of! As a firm believer in "What goes around, comes around..." I'm pretty confident that those two #%$@&! will get theirs soon enough.

Hang in there, FlowerWitch!

I sent today, too! I couldn't find my packing tape yesterday, so I ran to the store this morning to get some more. After I got home from the PO, the first thing I see is, of course, the packing tape  Tongue
