nice!  Can flannel be used to make bibs?  I have lots of flannel...

A granny blouse to me has to have sleeves! Cheesy  No matter how many push ups or triceps curls I do, I can't get rid of my old lady batwings! Cheesy  Sleeves are the only option!

I learned how to crochet after years of knitting...I sort of had to relearn both!  And, I am still learning...I found that having a live person show me was the best way to learn...I am lucky to have a crocheter as a coworker and friend!

You crack me up! LOL!

I have tried knitting. I think I understand the method okay...but the needles I chose are crap and my yarn just keeps sliding off and I gave up trying. Maybe someday I will get some different needles and give it another go.

 Cheesy LoL, alwaysinmyroom!  I was thinking the delicate rose fabric was granny-like, but I think you're right!

I think flannel can be used for bibs, I've got a bit leftover from cutting a flannel robe(ready to sew this weekend) and hope to make a receiving blanket or two from it..then cutting squares to make a quilt from the leftovers.  A lady at the quilt meeting this week handed me a large cut of yellow double knit and it will be the backing! =]

That's because those exercises work on the front of your arms. I am slowly working on mine - the best way to get rid of them (according to Google) is to raise your arm over your head, using the other hand to steady your elbow, keeping your arm against your ear. Then you bend your arm down to behind your back, keeping your arm against your ear. I remember to do it daily by doing one or two reps every time my yarn goes taut and I need to flip some more off the ball. Might not work as well if you work with centre pull balls, but it's working for me  Grin

ooo--exercise with yarn! Sounds more fun than what I do...

Actually, I lift weights with a trainer 3 times a week...we do one similar to what you described only with about 45 pounds of weight... Wink

I think the rose print is lovely...and I love that you got free fabric!

Thank You all for the compliments about the knit puppy  Kiss

kwiltykate - Lots of may babies huh? My niece is due in May, someone in this craft-a-long said that their best friend's baby was due then...I am sure I am missing some other one. I have only seen May on here too, no other dates. Something in the atmosphere?  Cheesy

v3nu5 - It's slightly understuffed to make it extra squeezable!  Wink  Try out the pattern, I guarantee it is simpler than you think it is. If you try it and you run into any issues then just send me a message and I am sure I could help you. They have a kitten, lamb, puppy, bear, bunny, lion(am I missing one?) Just go onto lionbrand.com and type in "sock critter".

astormorray - I have always admired the lion pattern and I LOVE your version(saw it on Ravelry originally). SO cute  Grin  I just don't have much patience for so much repetition I guess. And the ear issue, at least my mod made it so I had to knit less! Though I wish I knew about the tail earlier, then I would have saved myself a lot of work I am sure. I plan on making all of the sock critters down the line. Especially the lamb(for myself), so maybe the lion will be next. Though the lamb is on my 50 projects list, so maybe I should stick to the list...or maybe something will suddenly find itself bumped off the list in a mysterious way... Cool

alwaysinmyroom - The bib I did for my 50 projects was flannel. Worked out really good. I believe it is a great choice. It absorbs spills well and because of it's texture is more likely to catch falling debris.

Everything is looking awesome!! I like to hit the "view photos" button to scroll through everyone's stuff  Grin

I think I'm going to try tackling an art quilt for myself next. It'll be fun and hopefully hep me learn how to use my new sewing machine.

Also have some natural fishermen's wool that I want to experiment dyeing with soon hopefully.

I haven't fallen off the face off the earth, really I haven't. February has been the toughest month we've been through in a while, with not only major illnesses but also some epic family trouble (like, disowning family kind of bad). But I've still been crafting, although at a much slower pace! Hopefully I'll have a finished project to show for it soon  Cheesy

J_Kieviet- I love that quilt, the colors are fantastic!

lafemmefatale- that Alice in Wonderland necklace is AMAZING!

Redflags; I'm so sorry to hear that! I was actually thinking of you today, since I noticed you haven't been posting much lately.
Thanks for the update. I really hope everyone pulls thru quickly!
Look forward to seeing your newest projects.
  I've been obsessed with my knitting, and am working on the purse swap.
So, I haven't much to put on any of these other boards!
