Thanks for the info on the Glitterspun. I'm still pretty new at crcohet myseld (not counting the 30 years between the time I first learned and the time I re-learned), so I'll take any advice  Wink

Postponing a bit more would be awesome for me, but if that doesn't work for everyone else, I'm sure I can work it in...

While I didn't recognize the movie at first (not due to your workmanship, though Wink ), I love your bag. Especially the lightning! Fantastic!

And subtle is definitely the word, which makes it that much cooler!

craftADDchick- maybe we can 'goal' together ( since we both just started) and motivated each other to get caught up by july, whatya think?? and dont feel bad/shy about not knowing a lot about yarn, everyone is super nice and will always help out!
p.s.- i reallllyy like your intense enthusiastic-ness!!!! its motivating as well!!!!
MEshelltakeone- Sounds like a plan! I can't start for another week (after Mother's Day), but then I should be good to go! This is actually motivating me to make sure that I get everything else finished. The bag of new yarn is taunting me Wink I might actually be able to start the October easy square next week if I plan right...
7306  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: "___" In A Box Swap Round 3 Gallery on: May 04, 2007 02:12:51 PM
I just love the variety in all of these boxes. This has been so much fun!

IMIS- I really like your Retro box. The decorated box is fantastic! I wouldn't have A) had the patience to make that and B) had all of the cool images! And I love the spiral tie-dye tee! Every time I try to make a spiral, it never comes out so clean looking.

marabu- I love the theme of your box, and I'll bet those recipes are yummy! I adore the matching apron and hot mitts- something every kitchen should have (even if you don't cook much!).

ruby_soho- Your housewife doll is amazing. Does she look like you?  Wink And, I chuckled when I read that you got pearls- my great-aunt was one of those housewives who did the vacuuming in dress, aprons, nylons and pearls!

mclianne- I love your bag and matching pouches. The fabric is so cheerful!

danaisradxcore- Excellent haul of dino goodies. The bag is great! I love the contrast between the "serious" houndstooth check and the vibrant, playful dino fabric!

modernjanis- Addicted to beading! Looking forward to seeing the results of your new habit! That elephant is cool- can't wait to see what it becomes a part of...

LUBEE- What a cute box! I just loved how the yarn was all wrapped up like cupcakes! And the t-shirt was pretty funny!

Phizzychick- I am so glad that your box arrived safely and that you liked it. Who says bugs can't be fun?  Wink

And, I thought I'd share my own donation...clearly a work in progress...

This is a nightstand that is getting a makeover and this pic shows it just after I started to attack it with sandpaper. I finished sanding it yesterday, and today some guys at work sawed off the bottom part that had some cracks and water damage. I plan on attaching little legs to give it a bit more height...
7308  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Woven magazine purse on: May 04, 2007 01:44:20 PM
Okay, I finally had a chance to finish it, now that the battery in the camera is charged...

And, just a note: If this doesn't help at all, let me know and I'll delete this- I put the pics on the server for my website, and I don't know how much room I have, so if these aren't needed I can delete them. If they are needed, I'm happy to leave them here!

So here goes, and I hope it makes sense...I realized when I was halfway done that I should have used 2 contrasting colors of paper, instead of the nearest catalog in the recycling bin Wink And I apologize if I am stating anything that is obvious to most...

First, there are two kinds of strips: open (not glued together) and closed (glued together).

When you weave each section...

You need to put open strips on each edge, with the open edge facing out...

Then you need to take another open strip and glue it over the tabs on the side of one piece that you need to join. Glue it so that the tabs are inside the strip and the folded dge faces out. This makes a "tongue."

Next, on one side of the piece that you need to join, you need to fold the tabs over and glue them into the open edge of the outermost strip. The strip should remain "open." This creates a "groove."

Then, you take the piece with the "tongue" and insert it into the "groove" of the other piece and glue it into place. You'll end up with a bigger piece (mine isn't very neat, because I was trying to do it quickly...).

I hope that this helps!

I was just poking around and found this:

It gives an idea of how it's made...

But the one that nykole 6412 made is way nicer looking! I might have to get myself an Arizona Tea so I can make one of these for coins, or something, since I don't smoke...

Thanks, Homerof2! I am getting antsy about starting, now that I have yarn to play with! But, I have to clear a few other items off of my list before I can start  Tongue

And, I was worried that my squares would all come out different sizes, but then I read comments from a few folks who just added on rounds to make them the right size, so now I feel much better!

Well, off I go to clear a project off of my to-do list!
