7361  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 2008 12" Squares ~ JUNE on: June 17, 2008 07:28:00 PM
Maybe you could do show pics and then count the folks that way! I'd do it, but I should have been in bed half an hour ago- early meeting tomorrow...

But, for those of you who have done this month's square, did you have any troubles with the early rounds? I was pretty careful and my numbers still weren't coming out right somehow (I really love when patterns include stitch counts so I know that I'm on the right track...the word "around" doesn't really help me much!). I finagled things so it doesn't look too bad so far, but I can't figure out where I went wrong...

I've finished through round 6, and I think that after round 7 it'll be smooth sailing... so maybe by the end of the weekend I'll have a finished square...

Yay!

Cool cell phone charm and zipper pull! How did you do the yellow "burst" one?

Even better! I love that even their username is a secret! Extra special and doubly secret! Tee-hee!

I love surprises Wink

Gorgeous necklace! I love how the shrinkie is framed (is it just glued into the frame, or is it wrapped with clay and the baked again?). Love the colors and the arrangement. I'd be wearing it all the time too!

And, is it Little Bo Peep? Who lost her sheep? And didn't know where to find them?

I also love the bookmark. I definitely see a couple of those in my future!

Yay! Thanks for posting the recipe and the added tidbits of info. Yum...and so easy sounding...

I think she meant that she wouldn't send the info to both partners. For example, if you won my bag, she'd send me your name and address so I could mail it to you. But, she wouldn't tell you that I was your sender. You'd have to wait until it arrived to find out.

I think...

Imagine, thanks for the added info! But a tute would still be fantastic! And, CeruleanEyes, those pendants are great! Love the flower, but I also love how well balanced the bird is! If I had tried that, it would most certainly have been hanging crooked Tongue

The amigurumi Day of the Dead couple is so cute! And, since nobody I know would appreciate them the way they should be, I'd be keeping those darlings for myself! Same with the tawashi! Love crocheted stuff...

Oh man! That sounds so yummy! Any chance you could share the recipe? I have a couple of folks who would love it as a gift! And such cool bottles, too!

Your books look amazing.  I am feeling SO jealous - and quite a bit stupid.

Am I the only one who has struggled with this ridiculously simple machine?

I have had nothing but trouble with mine.  I can never get things to come out even.  I end up with a half a hole on one end - or the holes are too far from the ends - or the inside pages don't line up with the cover.

I finally found the video on their website - although I haven't really had time to study it.  I did discover that the covers couldn't be "odd" sizes that they have to be an even inch or 1/2 inch number - I'm hoping that will help my "half-hole" problem.  It would have been nice, for those of us who are diy impaired, if the instructions that came with the machine were more than a few lines.

Any tips from someone who obviously has it all figured out?

There is a Yahoo Bind-It-All group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Binditall/) and the moderator has posted an awesome users guide that should help you out! You should give it a look-see because I've found it to be a very helpful community (and the moderator is just a fantastic person, too!).


And SuzNTX, ever since I got my BIA, I've been saving up cool boxes just so I can do the same thing! Did you back the covers with anything? And, did you use a chipboard back cover?
