HE LIVES!!!!

Okay, it only took me about 3 months, but my Frankenteddy is finally finished! Thanks to: Brianknits, Homerof2, Igobylorib and pinkstars69- (Team Pooh Bear) for sending such great fabrics! I had my doubts about what he was going to look like when I finally got it all together, but he came out way better looking than I expected!

I stitched his mouth and belly button (he has an "outie") on today, so he is officially done!

Shoot! I was just at JoAnns and didn't think to look there for thick foam! I did order a couple of books by Jacqui Carey: Beginner's Guide to Braiding: The craft of Kumihimo (Beginner's Guide to Series) and 200 Braids to Twist, Knot, Loop, or Weave  (got 'em on Amazon) to help me get started. One of the reviews for the beginner's guide says that there are instructions for making the stuff you need out of stuff you can find around the house. I'll let you know what that means when the book arrives later this week, if you're interested.

GraceOblivious, where did your husband find the disks that he bought? Just in case the ones that I make just don't cut it... Wink

Fantastic stuff, everyone!

I love all of the notecards (including the ones from the start of the gallery)! They are putting me in a card-making mood (which is why I just spent a ton of $$ on new stamps...)!

And, I love the embroidered items, too (redheadskydiver- that must have taken you ages; and sammimag- I love the graphic simplicity- and colors- of the one you did)!

Margrethe, I love the fabric that you used to make Kurtzie's messenger bag. I could not find any cool fabric like it!

The knitted and crocheted coasters are fantastic and phantomssiren, where did you find those plastic tea bag holder things?

And, ViolinRomance, I love the pillow that you made for mommabear1963!

Very cute! I'd carry and use one of these. And when lint and stuff sticks to the wallet along the seams, it will give them some fuzziness!

Nice job!
7605  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - MAY on: May 27, 2007 09:24:41 AM
Here is my October easy square! I was going to post it before I had breakfast this morning, but I realized that I had left it in the car (craft day at a friend's house yesterday) and I was still in my PJs. I knew I had to post the pic to prove that I had actually done it!  Grin Grin Wink

I used Simply Soft Grey Heather. I had to add two extra rounds to get it to the 12" size. I've printed out the November easy square, which also uses an I hook, so I might have to find a J to make this one with.

7606  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Owl Swap Round 4. Signups April 12-May 2. Send-outs June 10! SIGNUPS CLOSED! on: May 27, 2007 07:05:07 AM
I made the cutest little thing yesterday. I thought that it was going to be a lot bigger, but it turned out tiny- and so cute! I was crafting with friends yesterday, and even they all thought it was cute. Might have to make one for myself, too!

Today is officially designated "Owl Swap Craft Day" (in between laundry and dishes and other random housework...Clean then craft as a reward, then...repeat).
7607  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Is anyone up for another color along? on: May 26, 2007 05:28:50 AM
I printed this out yesterday! I was going to attempt it in PhotoShop, but in my first attempt, it wasn't very successful. So, I've decided that I need to work on my coloring skills with colored pencil. I've never been very good at coloring  Wink so, hopefully, I can do a decent job!

I really like this image!

I'm so glad I finally got started!  Cheesy

So am I!  I don't know about the rest of you but I was getting tired of all these empty promises that you were actually going to start   Grin   Tongue   Grin

Ah, yes! I have been feeling  guilty that I've had to keep putting it off. So, I blew off working on a swap item and worked on this instead! Wink

I was going to skip around, too, but I figured that I needed to have some order to it. I have 6 rounds of the October easy square done, and I've figured out the pattern so I don't have to read it as I go (whew!). My only problem is going to be that I'll have to add on rounds to make it to the 12" size. As much as I try, I still crochet too tight! And, I couldn't find a larger hook, so I just went with it.

If I have time to crochet tomorrow night, I might get it finished. If not, then probably Saturday and I'll post a pic on Sunday.

I'm so glad I finally got started!  Cheesy

I printed out the October easy square directions and I have a question: What does it mean to dc "around" hdc? I know what dc and hdc are, I just don't get the "around" part. Does that mean don't crochet "into" it (like into the loops at the top of the hdc), but kind of "over/under" it?

Read back at the end of page 9 and beginning of page 10 - this exact question is answered there.

Oh, I'm too lazy for that! Wink Actually, I just decided to start it and I think I have it. It does make sense when I actually have the hook in hand. I just did the first 2 rounds and it looks like it might be right.

Thanks for the speedy reply!

Actually, now that I'm on here, I guess I'll go back and check... Grin

ETA: Okay, I went back and checked, and I think I'm doing it right...Thanks again Homerof2 for pointing me in the right direction! Now, I'd best get backed to it before I get distracted Wink
