7081  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 2008 12" Squares ~ APR on: April 25, 2008 11:29:40 AM
it seems like this is the month that everyone's kind of struggling to get done! for me, it's the sunshine, dragging me out for walks and picnics where i don't think to bring my crochet.

craftADDchick - i love those colours! all the ends you have to weave are worth it, the colours look soo good together!

Thanks! I need all of the encouragement that I can get on the colors of this one.  The more I look at it the more the color combo is starting to grow on me.

And, you seem to be correct in how folks are struggling to finish this month. We've had over a week of gorgeous weather so it does make it hard to sit inside and crochet Wink

I thought you must have another one coming soon!  I'm only keeping up with this thread because I know you aren't done yet!  Good job!

Thanks for the support! You see, I really do get to things eventually Wink

Thanks! The rose looks lighter in the photo than it actually is. I almost considered adding in the light green/sage to my color palette to tone down the rose, but I think it'd be too much. I'll get used to it as I go, I guess...

I know my partner received yesterday morning, but I have yet to hear from her!

Me too! But, I know she had to work some crazy hours earlier this week, so I'm guessing that's probably what happened. And, I'm trying (not very successfully, though Wink ) not to worry! I'm being such a dork about it...eeek!

Wow! This is beautiful! I checked out your tute (thanks!) and I love the little trick of using the corner punch- makes it look so professional! What are the "cut and dry nibs"? I've never heard of them. How do they work and where do I find them? Because I'm definitely going to attempt this for someone...not sure which city though (my city has one of the worst/non-existant skylines in the country Tongue ). Maybe someplace I've travelled like Seattle, San Francisco or London. They have cool skylines...

MistressT, you got such a fun jar! And, it's funny because I sent my partner a couple of smashed pennies too (New England Aquarium and Franklin Park Zoo...both in Boston). I have a collection of my own, so the next time I go to Salem (which won't be around Halloween...madness...once is enough Wink ), I'm looking for the penny smashing machine there!

I also love the skull hands! Such fun stuff!

ETA: Just wanted to say my partner already received, so I didn't spoil any secrets Grin

I finally finished weaving in my ends so here's my April square! I'm not sure I'm lovin' the rose and peach combo, but maybe I just need to use the rose a bit more. Anyway, here it is in all of it's glory Wink

And, this weekend, I'll be working on the May '07 square so when May '08 rolls around, I should be ready!

Still pluggin' along! Here is my April square! I've wanted to make this one since I first saw it, but I'm staying true to the course and doing them in order. Love it! Definitely on the "do again" list!

You wouldn't know it, but it's hard to write a good test!

When I was going for my teaching certification/Master's degree, one of the classes I took was all about assessment...or how to properly write a test. It is tricky! And then, once you get it written, you have to grade them all...and see where you could have written things a bit better Tongue

But, because I am on vacation, no school work for me! So, I got to work on my items today. Actually, the guy at the frame shop around the corner worked on my item for me Wink It's amazing how much nicer something looks when it is properly matted...

Thanks GumInMyHair!  And, so glad you joined in HOPEANN- can't wait to see what your squares look like Wink
