A2JC4life - I love the apple bag!! It's so cute! May I ask where you found the pattern?

I've been hard at work with Crafster Challenges!

1. I've been working on my entry for the Crocheted Jewelry Challenge!  Grin
I'm really proud of my "Sparkling Blue" Crocheted Ring necklace! It's my first attempt at writing a pattern too!

To check out my creation:

2. I also entered the "Back to Basics" Challenge using pompoms.
This is what I made:

SheepBlue - I adore your bag!

katara - both of your challenge entries are fantastic! Great job(s)!

I made something for myself today! My daughter and I both made Rapunzel Scarves for spring - we just needed something fun and easy to feel successful with (its been a tough week at school... and its only Tuesday...). I posted about both of them *here*.

But here is a picture of the one that is MINE Smiley  (modeled by my daughter)

There are close ups on the post, but it has pearl-like beads and a couple of other fun ribbons/yarns in it. I really like how it turned out and can't wait to wear it!

I also finished something for myself!  I made the knitting needle case from the end of the 1st Stitch N' Bitch book.  I came into like 10 pairs of needles at Goodwill for 90 cents, which was more than enough motivation to get this finished. 

Showing off all the needles (and the chalk lines I still haven't erased yet  Tongue)

All rolled up, this shows off the print better!

It turned out a little wonky, but it gets the job done, and it also let me use the crazy outside fabric, and the black fabric on the inside is really scratchy and ugly, so this was a good use for it!  All it needs is the ribbon on the outside, which I'm thinking I may not even need; it seems to stay together pretty well on its own.   Grin

Well, it's not a bag; it's a dish scrubber, and it's only about the size of my palm.  But it's a free pattern from the Lion yarn site.  Here: apple scrubber pattern

Honestly, though, it's pretty simple and could probably easily be made into a bag if you're at all familiar with crochet.  Aside from the leaf, it's just a single-crocheted-in-the-round circle.  The color changes to red on the last round, and then you fold it in half and sew it shut.  The seeds are straight stitches embroidered on, and the stem is a hanging loop made from a plain old chain.  So the leaf's the only thing that would require fiddling if you wanted to enlarge it; just crochet more rounds and, if you want a bag, don't sew it up all the way to the top.

Love the little apple scrubber...it would also make a cute decorative pot holder! Cheesy  Thanks for the link!

Sheepblue--wow fantasitc TM bag!  Perfect for Ms. Button Queen, TSM! Smiley

As I was dusting off my computer screen for the 100th time, I was thinking of making some sort of cover!  What a great idea!  I think I might make something for the keyboard as well...I ruin so many keyboards with food, drink and general messiness!

waggonswest...so lovely...I will need to go look at the individual thread for details!

The needle roll looks great--lovely colors...I like how you can fit them to whatever you want!  I will confess that I dumped my holder and went back to my old ways of throwing all of my needles into an oatmeal box that I will someday trick out with a project I saw here last year!

Dawntree--aren't those scarves fun?  I have been collecting yarns from various people to make another one for myself...it does take a lot of variety and patience!

katara--how exciting for you to be in two challenges!  I will go read about them as well..

Great job everyone!  Glad to see lots of projects for yourself!! ha ha I might be done with the March challenge at the same time the April challenge is done!  I think I will extend April to the end of April to help me catch up...so far behind due to a lot of things (tax season, mostly!)...

Love to see the projects and add to my list...I have lots to post this weekend!

Well it's a very pretty dish scrubber!! I really like it - think I might have a go at morphing it into a purse!

waggonswest - Love the different techniques you used in making the slime mold quilt!! It looks fantastic!

This is lovely!

The slime mold quilt rocks!  I worked with a kiddo in a grade school who made a tape worm out of sculpy for her science teacher as a goodbye gift when she graduated 8th grade . . . Your quilt made me think of her and smile!

I finished the market bag I was working on for 2 or 3 weeks.  It did not come out quite like I had hoped (I think I miscounted the rounds that provide the depth) but it stretches well and will be good for produce or canned goods.  It is pictured here alone and with the contents of my cabinet -- imperfect but all mine Wink.

Also, I have finished 6 out of the at least 20 dishcloths on my list . . . I took the pic now because I give them away as thank you and birthday gifts and had to give the ones on the left with the striped ribbon to a friend this afternoon.

Rock on all!

I love the market bag! I've had one on my list for a while now...okay not my list list but my mental list Smiley
I made one of my sils a set of cloth napkins...I never thought about how much of a pain all those straight edges would be! Not to mention the fact that my fat quarters were not cut straight to begin with! Grrr! But they are done and they have pretty mitered corners, and I shall show them to you all when I get a computer back Sad

Check me out!! I was featured on Geekcrafts.com!
