I claim La_Chrystelle for pillowcases to embroider and Twizlers

WISH LIST:

NEW: I got a sewing machine for Christmas (my bf rocks) but the thing is, its my first so I have nothing: I need thread, fabric and whatever else you need to seriously start sewing (patterns welcome too). So absolutely everything is welcome.  Thanks dontlookback, more is welcome.
My goal is to make a dress for myself for a friends wedding in July.

NEW: My bf needs caps and bandanas (in boyish colors) for his head. He just underwent chemo for leukemia. He just got a whole bunch of those plus I love his bald head.
On that subject, I would really like to remind all of you to donate blood as well as platelets (leukemia patients need a lot of transfusions), also for those of you who have considered donating organs, please consider getting yourself on the bone marrow donor registry (http://www.marrow.org/HELP/Join_the_Donor_Registry/index.html). My bf is lucky enough that both his brothers are a match but other patients need the help of strangers. Thank you.

NEW: I need a new pair of slippers. They can be store bought and embellished (I have a preference for embroidery), knitted/crocheted then felted for durability or made from scratch if you feel so inclined, women's US 8, UK 5, EUR 38/39

NEW: Lion Brands Jiffy yarn for an afghan for a friends wedding:
2 balls Chili, 2 balls Paprika, 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

NEW: a bedcaddy (http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/507_515.htm) so i am not fishing for my glasses and my book on the floor.

NEW:a bathrobe or something similar for lounging in my pjs

   Thrummed mittens
   A bag big enough to take to my bfs on the week-end (hold 3 change of clothes, hairbrush), Id love something with a corduroy fabric and some embellishment.

ABOUT ME:

I am 26 years old and have been living in Chicago, IL for the past 2 years. I am originally from France, I have also lived in London, Germany and Tahiti (dont hesitate to send goodies from those places; I really miss a lot of things).
I am a nanny, so I tend to be very practical (no frilly, girly things in my wardrobe, sticky fingers are not forgiving). I like soft pinks, browns, reds and neutrals, blues are great too, no greens please. I love to read, fantasy and sci-fi in particular and I am a bit of a TV addict.

This is my first claim this round (0 sent, 0 received)

Okay! I am a 19 year old lady and I live in the Bay Area in California with my beautiful beau, 2 pet rats and a bearded dragon (and now a gorgeous Brazillian rainbow boa).

  • Anything for my Snuggle Bear. He's 21, loves computers and reptiles. He likes dark colors like blues, browns and black. He likes a lot of anime shows (pm me if you're interested in any of those). He doesn't like really fancy things, always likes t-shirts (stenciled or screen printed maybe?) Scented candles are always on the list (nothing musky or super sweet). Send me a message for more ideas, something for him would be awesome.

  • BIG WISH!! Heavier weighted fabric to make the wall organizer from Lotta Jansdotter's book (Or if you want to make the wall organizer that is cool too Tongue)
  • Pattern for Amy Butlers Sofia Carry-All bag, its so awesome!
  • A rotary cutter thanks !b
  • A rectangular ruler, the clear kind with the grid measurements for quilting
  • Pillow forms good for now
  • Embroidery thread I'm good for now, thanks !b
  • Sublime Stitching patterns (I have Unicorn Believer and Sushi Bar) good for now, thanks Lilyvanilli!
.
Crochet/Knitting:

  • Stitch markers! Pretty or fun. Not too cutesie or bigger (longer) than about
  • Any Debbie Bliss yarn (or anything similar to her cashmerino aran)
  • Yarn Swift
  • Ball Winder
  • Crochet hooks (I lost my 2 1 (one fell between my chair cushion!) favorites ever Cry pm for sizes) thanks Santacruzsugar!
  • Knitting needles, (pm for sizes)
  • A knitting needle roll
.

I would like to claim Dinosaurus Meg for a book from her list.  

This is my first 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)

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 am a 25 year old mother of 3 and married to a big child (31 going on 5). i live in a tiny little dot on the map clgate, saskatchewan canada. i'm closer to the us border than any large city in my own country. i am a stay at home mom (with 3 under 5 i have to) i have crafting ADD . . . i have a new obsesion weekly it seems. i have sewn since i was kid (granny taught me) i also crochet (the other granny taught me as a kiddo) i recently learned to knit and then promptly cheated and bought a knitting machine. i dye yarn on occasion, i can cross stitch (havn't in years though), i've dabbled in scrapbooking, and stamping, and card making, and paper quilting, embroidery (hand and machine), needle felting, stained glass, jewlery making, see where the ADD kicks in lol. these days i mostly crochet or sew. i am really wanting to learn spinning (my husband is thrilled about that *rolls eyes*)

I am new to the whole wist thing so I dont have much in/on it but there are pics of bags I like, and kids toys I like

*GINORMOUS BIG WISH* my purse/bag is starting to crap out on me and i just don't have the patience to make a new one at the moment. not overly picky except for size. it needs to fit a couple of diapers, mini wipe case, baby sleeper, wallet, keys, phone and zipper not a necessity thanks la_chrystelle for taking this on!

I claim 1boy1girl1kitty2 for fantasy/sci books

This is my 3rd claim of 3.

NEW: I got a sewing machine for Christmas (my bf rocks) but the thing is, its my first so I have nothing: I need thread, fabric and whatever else you need to seriously start sewing (patterns welcome too). So absolutely everything is welcome.  Thanks dontlookback, more is welcome.
My goal is to make a dress for myself for a friends wedding in July.

NEW: My bf needs caps and bandanas (in boyish colors) for his head. He just underwent chemo for leukemia. He just got a whole bunch of those plus I love his bald head.
On that subject, I would really like to remind all of you to donate blood as well as platelets (leukemia patients need a lot of transfusions), also for those of you who have considered donating organs, please consider getting yourself on the bone marrow donor registry (http://www.marrow.org/HELP/Join_the_Donor_Registry/index.html). My bf is lucky enough that both his brothers are a match but other patients need the help of strangers. Thank you.

NEW: I need a new pair of slippers. They can be store bought and embellished (I have a preference for embroidery), knitted/crocheted then felted for durability or made from scratch if you feel so inclined, women's US 8, UK 5, EUR 38/39

NEW: Lion Brands Jiffy yarn for an afghan for a friends wedding:
2 balls Chili, 2 balls Paprika, 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

NEW: a bedcaddy (http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/507_515.htm) so i am not fishing for my glasses and my book on the floor.

NEW:a bathrobe or something similar for lounging in my pjs
 

Crafted:

   Felted bag: something small like Amandas squatty sidekick (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187674.0)
   A basket to keep my wips under control (in whatever medium youd like)
   A hand-painted or customized mug
   A kimono inspired hoodie like this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177160.80;
   A pair of flannel pajama pants
   Softies of realistic animals (jungle or farm animals, always a hit) for the lovely children in my life, and there is quite a few of those, so the more, the merrier. Thanks Kelda and summertimerolls, on hold for now
   A pair of knitted socks (I cant seem to be able to do that) Thanks addicted2knitting
   A skirt, I prefer knee-length, PM for measurement. Id love something like that http://www.wists.com/Poerava/e97f1f125f6abe4e4c87a0213146e011 , solid dark color with embellishment.
   Thrummed mittens
   A bag big enough to take to my bfs on the week-end (hold 3 change of clothes, hairbrush), Id love something with a corduroy fabric and some embellishment.

   Glass and ceramic tiles or pieces in green for a mosaic (the coffee table needs upgrading)
   Shrink plastic
   Fabric covered buttons

ABOUT ME:

I am 26 years old and have been living in Chicago, IL for the past 2 years. I am originally from France, I have also lived in London, Germany and Tahiti (dont hesitate to send goodies from those places; I really miss a lot of things).
I am a nanny, so I tend to be very practical (no frilly, girly things in my wardrobe, sticky fingers are not forgiving). I like soft pinks, browns, reds and neutrals, blues are great too, no greens please. I love to read, fantasy and sci-fi in particular and I am a bit of a TV addict.
