Wellll, Troublet and evilSabina, .....thanks to your shock that DMC is "gone," I just looked online. It exists, still. The lady at Hancock's told me that DMC was out of business so they now carried sullivan's. I--stupidly--believed her and didn't try anyplace else for thread. (Or hopefully what happened was that I misunderstood her and only Hancock's has discontinued carrying it.) Hmph. This stuff sticks to other skeins, feels like it has some sort of microscopic briars that catch as it goes through the needle, and is dull. Plus, when I trimmed up a few too-long loops, it fuzzed immediately, like a dandelion fluff. Argh.

It's easy, and you just use ordinary embroidery floss (polished DMC, please). It's the ultimate chill craft--put your mind on meditate, and go.

The threads are waxed cotton (though I've used hemp, ribbons, whatever), knotted, and sewn into the seam.

I picked up a tiny split ring from the floor today, though, and thought THAT might make a cool way to attach a bookmark, too. Maybe hand-stitch it on to the cover and attach a chain/ribbon to it?

alwaysinmyroom, if you find a cool tute, would you share it?  Smiley

Congrats Lillianpearl!

shan-E-bear - love the scarflette and fingerless gloves! Gorgeous colors!

I spent far too long on a bracelet this weekend, but I really like how it turned out. It is a comfortable weight and hangs just right on my wrist! It is made from turquoise chips, small coral beads and copper beads. (I bought the coral quite a while ago before I was aware of the issues of unsustainable harvesting practices)

(these thumbnail pictures are tough to see, or is that just me and my eyesight?)

I posted about it here.

I wish I could produce a craft this month but it is just not going to happen  Undecided This baby sweater just can't get made quick enough with all my activity. I now realize there is no way I can be back to Maine at the end of March/beg of April, finish planning a baby shower, knit a sweater, have the shower, among other stuff all in about 10 days. So I have finally come to the realization that it just won't be done in time. But the sweater is 18m, so I have a little bit of time(though it is said to fit small).

I am not going to lie, seeing everyone's crafts makes me a little sad that I can't produce any myself. Especially since I can't do it even when I get back for a bit. *sigh*

Got 2 projects "finished" this weekend. The zombie xstitches are all probably going to end up on sewn projects, although the work bites one might end up at  my desk at work lol. They have not been ironed yet so the "Zombies only want you for your brains" one looks kinda wonky in the picture.









And the start of a granny square blanket. I had 1.5 balls of camo yarn laying around and a ball of black. So that's as far as the camo got me, but at least they are crocheted and waiting to be joined by others.
