1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / The softest, prettiest 40 foot scarf you'll ever see... on: June 15, 2007 07:36:10 PM
Yes this scarf is actually 40 feet long!  I have included a picture here of my mother-in-law opening this at Christmas and later on I wrapped it around my students at school (why I didn't take a picture is beyond me!)

Basically what I did was use two circular needles to knit this wonder of the universe.  I wanted the stripes to go lengthwise and it just seemed that as long as I knitted that the scarf wasn't long enough.  That's probably because I scrunched the yarn way too much on the needles. 

Don't worry though, I plan to never be this clueless again!

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Large Scale Scrapping on: June 15, 2007 07:16:57 PM
My brother is developmentally delayed and lives in a group home.  He can be very violent and has thrown photos in frames when he gets upset and then he doesn't have any pictures of family to look at when he is feeling better.

Sooooo.... I made him a large scale sort of a "this is your life" photo board.  He's really liked it.



3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Coat of Arms on: June 15, 2007 07:05:00 PM
One of my very good friends is due to have a little boy any day now. Both she and her husband are very proud of their Irish heritage and I thought that they would appreciate a coat of arms to honor their family and as a nifty way to introduce Thomas to the family.

I used an overhead projector to first trace the image from one I found online.  I then used the tracing paper to cut out cardstock and other scrapbooking papers for the parts of the arms.  I used brads for the bolts of the armor and pens and stamp pad ink for embellishments.  I also used foam squares and curled the paper to give the whole thing dimension.  

The project was finished off by using a simple black frame.

Let me know what you think!

This is the 2nd quilt I have made.  It is a modified Irish Chain and I made it for my friend who is due to have a little boy any day now!  Although I have a few mess-ups I'm pretty proud of myself!

Hello!  I am a multi crafter (quilting, knitting, scrapbooking, etc) who is in some desperate need of other crafty people to either get together with or just share ideas! 

Let me know if you are out there!
