I am claiming poerava for 1 ball Gold, 2 balls Rust, 2 balls violet, 2 balls Dusty pink, 1 ball Navy, 1 ball Apple green, 1 ball Grass green, 1 ball Lemon Lion Brand Jiffy.

This is my second claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I am 27 28 (yikes!) and in North Carolina. Recently moved out to the "woods" (not really woods) and discovering my hippier side..

I am vegetarian, love cooking, spend my time knitting, watching movies and gardening. I love green, anything with elephants or birds.  I have a not-so-hidden love of the Star Trek and I love documentaries.  Since I'm not good at this personal-ad stuff, on with the icing:

DIY KITS + SUPPLIES

Niddy Noddy

Solid Color Sock Yarn

Klingon-style cloaking device for the stash

Baby alpaca yarn. (or a baby alpaca  Grin   )

Roving! (esp handdyed and/or interesting fibers)

Handmade Paper

Green Yarn -- any type is good! I love anything green + yarn-ey.

This is pretty specific, but I am looking for a pair of 32" circular needles US9 that have a pointy tip.  I prefer wooden or something like the Addi Turbo lace needles (though they don't make the size I need), but I have to make the Sugarplum Shrug from the holiday IK issue and this is stopping me!
 
Rag Balls like http://www.2oldcrows.com/Potpourri/oldquiltragballs010.jpg

Natural Roving

Handspun Yarn

Ashford Jacquard Acid Dyes - specifically, any of the following:  silver grey, kelly green, chartreuse, spruce, pumplin orange, gun metal, olive, burnt orange

Small, Lace Circular Needles (size 1 or smaller)

Small Wooden DPNS (1, 0, 00, 000, etc)


CRAFTY STUFF

Flannel PJ pants. I'm a wee one, so I hope that makes it easier? (You can PM me for sizes)

Altered book

Mittens - any color is good

Reusable shopping bags (small ones are good, too, for produce!)

Green Placemats - I like green tone on tones, or something patchwork.

A knit bonnet.  In blues, or greens.  Again, another thing I'll never find time to make myself.

Screenprinted shirts. (Extra small/small) PM me if you would like specific ideas

Resin Bracelets/Bangles

Green Knit Legwarmers (I never find the time to make my own)

Stationery with stenciled/screenprinted birds

Handmade candles (I love vanilla, fig, lavender)

Tea Cozy

Some labels to go around my yarns.  Some crafty paper person could help design something fun.

Knit/Crochet Hat for DH (in blue or black maybe?)

Floor cushion for the DH for the ultimate comfort in wii-playing (even if one of you talented sewers could just sew the cushion cover, I'll buy the insert)

Panta/Calorimetry

Fabric, re-usable lunch bag

Hand-sewn lavender (or cedar) sachets

Name plates for books (those label things that you stick on the inside of books)

Anyone into pottery? I'd love some new coffee mugs.

Anything with Gnomes.  Really.

Cloth Menstrual Pads (the ones with wings + fasteners) yay! thanks 1boy1girl1kitty2!

A clutch like this one:  http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/133071leg.jpg

Dresser/Jumper like this:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=156718.0


MISC

Spinning Designer Yarns by Diane Varney

The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook: Dyeing, Painting, Spinning, Designing, Knitting by Lynne Vogel

Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel

Gnomes for my Garden

any of the Moosewood cookbooks

Scented candles

Pre-loved copies of Interweave Knits

Hand-dipped incense. Esp nag champa.

Bento Lunch Box

One of those wooden clothes dryer things.  Maybe it has a more specific name, but I'd like it to dry roving in the tub. Smiley

Loose teas - esp. lemon verbena

Dog Toys. He thinks he never has enough.

Old Time Radio shows on CD (addicting, especially the thrillers!)


Anything on my wists!

Thanks!

I claim 1boy1girl1kitty2 for some roving.

Hi! Im CrossStitchinMomma and Im live in Tennessee (USA). Im a married 25 year old SAHM of one. Im originally from England so any British candy (if youd like to know what types please PM me!) would be welcome as I cant get it over here! I love anything to do with Victorian or Tudor England. I love to knit. I know how to cross stitch but it generally takes a long time and I like finishing things quickly. I just bought a computerized sewing machine but it is super intimidating to me so I havent really used it yet but Id love to learn how to sew. Anything from my wist would be great too!!!

WISHES IN RED ARE THE ONES I'D LIKE THE MOST! THANKS!

Okay first things first - if you live in the UK I will happily accept Cadburys Roses or some McVities Plain Chocolate Biscuits!!! I'm really missing British sweets!

The Ruffled Skirt - its basically a pencil skirt with some ruffles (in black preferably & please PM me for measurements) from the Spring 07 issue of Adorn magazine. I have the pattern I just need someone to make it for me. I would be your best friend forever lol!

If you have a Victoria Secret gift certificate or gift card that you got for Christmas that you don't want to use or don't need I'm so wanting a bra from there so I'd happily (okay super happily!) take it off your hands for you!

Supplies:

MY BIGGEST WISH OF ALL! I would love any sort of stained glass supplies! Anything to get me started as I am wanting to learn how to make stained glass SO badly! I need books (or DVD's) the most as I'm learning!

Maybe a gift certificate to Delphi Glass (because I have no clue what I need to get started!  Huh ) would be great too.

Cross Stitch:
BIG HUGE WISH
 - 11 count colored (it has to be colored) aida cloth (this is a present for my great grandmother who has bad eyesight but loves to cross stitch - as its a gift please make sure that the aida is in an unopened package) I can't find colored Aida anywhere and I need to send it out for Christmas soon as its going to England. If possible I would like at least one but more than one would be absolutely fantastic!!!
Thanks Greiney and more is always welcome!

Knitting:
Patons Cashmere, Soy Silk, or Wool  yarn (please PM me for colors but pretty much anything would be okay)

Any other brand of wool (i.e. Lions Wool, etc) would be great too but again please PM for colors.

Knitting needle point protectors...I keep losing mine! Some cute ones can be found here! (

Sewing:
 
Anything with Victorian ladies on it would be great.

Some fabric with four leaf clovers or Ireland (the word Ireland not actually Ireland itself lol) so I can make a purse for my best friend.

Not Your Mama's Felting by Amy Swenson

A beginner sewing book with lots of details, diagrams and descriptions! (Im a sewing machine virgin!) *I was claimed for this but more are always welcome!* - I now have Sewing for Dummies so I no longer need that but other books are welcome. 
A beginner dressmaking/clothing how to book.

BIG WISH! This can be Crafted or Purchased. I'd like one in blue - http://www.lakeside.com/details.asp?I=ZSO&N=36+461&Nao=37&R=2539&product=Childrens-Zippered-Storage

A wipe off rewards chart that is maybe magnetic too so I can reward my son for good behavior/ potty training.

A nice jewelry box that has storage where you can hang necklaces in it (crafted out of wood and preferably stained a cherry wood color). This can either be a crafted or a bought item. I'll post a link for an example if requested as I'm trying to find a nice one.

Pyramid studs & Plaid purse (a plain black purse or maybe some cute retro circle print would be great like this too but I really like this plaid material): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=55325.0

This can be crafted or bought. I'm not a huge fan of the color of this one though. I'd like a black or a purple one preferably. http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/073633.html
I'd like this http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/074074.html

One of these or something similar would be great as I have a large yarn stash and its all stuffed in my sewing desk. http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/074080.html

This would be nice for knitting on the go! http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/085525.html

I would love this (please PM me for sizes & colors) http://www.burdastyle.com/creations/show/1447

This would be SO cute! I would love this in these colors http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/344921.html

SUPER BIG HUGE WISH! If you are a master of the sewing machine (I'm not!  ) I'd love for someone to make this. My best friend is not feeling well as she has some health issues so this would be a fantastic pickmeup for her! A cute purse with some sort of Irish theme for my best friend who loves Ireland and has a purse obsession. 4-leaf clovers or the word Ireland on something is usually what she likes the best. Maybe a green cordorouy purse with Ireland on it or something like that. PM me for ideas! Pending!!!

The amigurumi butterfly girl shown here - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206251.msg2202969;topicseen#msg2202969

I would totally love this and I would like be your best friend forever (or something like that) if you made this for me! Stained glass Union Jack (this would be great to hang in my window) - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6311151

Id love just the British Charm (I love this too!) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6732827

This one can be bought or crafted. If someone knows how to make or would like to buy one - a lapdesk would be wonderful. They sell these for like $10 at Hobby Lobby too if you need to see what they look like. Theres a pic on this link too - If you are wondering what a lapdesk is its this thing (it doesn't need to have a cup holder and just plain material would be fine)...http://img.inkfrog.com/click_enlarge1.php?image=ldparislg_(Small).JPG&username=sharps_container_supply&aid=13168672


Some black and white photographs of old English churches or houses (preferably the ones made of stone or houses with thatched roofs). I know this one is a long shot but I can dream! Just so you get an idea Id like them all to be relatively uniform because I want a set of 3 to 5 to put in a photograph cluster on my wall. Here are a few examples: 

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7122617
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7067967


Misc. Wish List -

Rubbermaid (or similar plastic) containers to store my knitting/crafty stuff in.

SUPER WISH! Some 3M Brushed Nickel Command hooks that are the size that hold coats. One would be great to start out but I'll ideally need 3 total.

3M command hooks - the large or the medium. I like the designer style the best please. I can never have too many of these things!

A DIY beginner yarn dying kit. A yarn dying how to book would be great too. I love all of these hand dyed yarns that are so beautiful and I'd love to give it a try!

BIG WISH!!! Wallflowers (refills or starter kits) from Bath & Body Works - Any scent is good but just not Fig, Cinnamon or anything spicy or musky smelling. I like the black vanilla rasberry, pink grapefruit, pearberry (anything fruity really) or anything with vanilla the best.

Pearberry lotion or body spray from bath and body works.

My son is 2 years old and he loves anything with Bob the Builder. He also loves trucks and motorcycles.

BIG WISH! A Thomas the Train piggy bank or a Bob the Builder piggy bank. Okay pretty much anything thats a piggy bank that relates to tools, trains, trucks, cars, dinosaurs, monster trucks, Fisher Price little people or anything like that would be fantastic! Oh and if it plays music that would be even better!!!!

BIG WISH! Fisher Price little people sets (my son has the barn, the garage and the ABC school thingie) or the little people by themselves. They can be gently used but new would be awesome!!!

Okay this one is a far out one but I'd really love The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory on CD if anyone is done with it and would like to pass it on to me I would be so so so happy!


Thanks in advance to anyone who picks anything from my list!!!

I claim Bettflow for a tote bag for her crocheting while at the drs office.  Im going to throw in some extras as well (surpises!!)

This is my first claim  none sent none recieved

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 35 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in NE OH.  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allerigc to nickel.
 
Here are my wishes
First off any surprise off my wist list is great!!

 
Big Wishes include:
**Beaded or crocheted/knitted Miser Bag example like this http://www.onceuponapattern.com/59.html or this one http://www.somewhereintime.tv/antiques/miser.html (im not asking for exact replicas of these. However it is ok if they are lol !!).
 
**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decrotive and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a predrafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)
 
Knitting and Crocheted Items
Knitted scarf in Black (I cant knit yet be envy those who can)

Crocheted Victorian Reticule like this one http://www.knitheaven.com/vintagepatterns/23_LADYS_RETICULE_CROCHET.htm

Primitive Rageddy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Knitted sleeve cuffs http://www.spunmag.com/article/050410cuffs

I love this shawl and am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.

A Nubia (Civil War Knitted Scarf). Red or Heather Gray would be lovely.  Im not sure if the link will take you directly there.  http://www.raggedsoldier.com/  If it doesnt Click on Needlework Necessities and Novelties and go to knitting patterns.

 
Sewn Items
Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.

Tote bag (I really need one of these lol)
Crazy Quilted Purse
Victorian capelet.  At least waist length please email for length.
Regency or Victorian era Reticule
Petticoat either knee or ankle length !!  (Im 5'5 email for length)
 
 
Supplies that are always needed
Im always needing thread for sewing and this always stays on my list. I go through alot of black and white but love new colors too!!  The more the merrier and gently used is welcomed too !!

2 yard lengths of eyelet trims and any color is welcome !! 

Patterned Ribbons is also welcomed too (again another one of my standbys lol)!!

Goth/punk/skulls inspired fabric that is at least .5 yards  ( I use these in my home sewing business.  I know ..... I thought she liked victorian and girly. It sells lol)

Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003 2006-2008 Though I dont have the brand new issue yet) and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (used is fine)

Gothic Lolita Bible Magazine (used is just fine)

Purse handles and supplies.  Silver victorian clasps would be great too.
 
Anything Betty Boop is welcomed
I also adore Charlie Chaplin !!

Some pretty stitch markers for crocheting (and knitting if I ever learn how to lol)

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper sissors. 

Beading supplies like wire 18 gauge or higher, beads, spacers.  I really need a crimper!!! Used is just fine as long as it works lol  Im also needing jewlery making supplies too.

Crafted Items
 
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  I have always wanted to try it!!  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies as I would love to learn how to make my own. Premade bars are appreciated as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.  Gonna take a break this round lol
 
Ive always been curious about those soap bombs.  My kids would probally love them !!  Also jars of bath salts would be fantasic as well.
 
A beaded Victorian Choker would be lovely.
 

Collected Items
 
I collect cookbooks from the victorian and ewardian eras !!  Or earlier if you can find them.
 
Godeys Ladies Book (In later years it was Godeys Ladies Magazine)!!!  Ebay has them frequently just type in Godeys and they will come up.  They were like the victorian Vogue Magazine of the day.  Petersons Magazines are great too.  You can usually get these pretty inexpensively and all years 1830-1890s are welcome !!  I paid anywhere from $4-$9 for the few I have.  Dont worry duplicates are fine.
 
Vintage Sewing Patterns!!  36 Bust is perfect. 
Im especially trying to find a Jumper from 1948(?) Simplicity 2705.
 
Candles are great too.  Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like)

I claim frosty772 for some stitch markers and a bead crimper. I'll probably throw in some other stuff.

1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

Hi everyone! I’m a sophomore college student majoring in engineering at a university in Southern California. I absolutely adore pastel colors as well as black and white as the background colors of stuff. I like solid shapes and designs (such as stars, spirals, and rings).

My Wish List:

A messenger bag, like the purple one here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.msg92700#msg92700.
I’d prefer it to be a darker color with a cute fabric lining inside and along the front. Hopefully, it’ll be big enough for me to use during the school year, so big enough to carry a few notebooks and stuff. Adjustable straps would be awesome, as would an inside zipper pocket. 

big wish! Homemade soap, lipbalm, sugar scrub, etc. Anything that smells good is nice! Anything that will make my face and skin feel soft and smooth is great too!

Desktop Calendar
I really love these desktop calendars, like this one here: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9272492. Some of those blank cd covers would be great too so I can try making my own!

I absolutely love this bracelet: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8837475.

Learn how to knit socks kit
I really wanna know how to make socks, but I have no idea how to start.

Learn-to-Embroidery Kit
I really wanna try embroidery, maybe on some towels or a pillow.

*Bit Wish* Amigurumi Kit
I know how to crochet, and would really like to try my hand at making amigurumi. I would love a cute kitten pattern!
