21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / My CuppyCakes! **Now with a tutorial!** (Pic Heavy!!) on: June 26, 2007 07:04:23 PM
Well, after studying twinkiechan's cupcake scarf very closely, I came up with my own version of the cupcake. I lovelovelove them & can't wait to finish them up & make myself a scarf for this winter! I haven't weaved in the ends or decorated them (I want to buy some pom poms Smiley ), but at least it's a start!

All comments & constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. Thanks!! Smiley

My lovelies


22  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Children & Baby Patterns on: June 26, 2007 05:51:28 AM
Hello everyone! I'm looking for patterns to crochet my daughter some cute clothes. I really want to crochet her some cute dresses, but every pattern I've found is usually written for size 6 months or smaller (and I'm not that great at modifying the pattern to fit my daughter) I have started one dress, but it has taken a back burner because I suddenly wasn't very fond of the color (it's bright green with bright pink accents). Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm mainly looking for cute dress, tops (halter or not), skirts, & pants/shorts patterns. Thanks in advance for all your help!
23  COOKING / Dessert / My Kids' Birthday Cakes! on: June 24, 2007 10:50:17 AM
Hi everyone! I wanted to post a couple pictures of the cakes I made for my children's birthdays. Their birthdays are 9 days within each other. They are different genders & 4 years apart, so I couldn't really lump the birthdays together. Soooo...I found myself making 2 birthday cakes! Anyway, my son, who turned 5, is a HUGE Thomas the Train fan...so naturally I had to oblige & make him a Thomas cake. I got lucky & found a Thomas cake pan (Wilton has discontinued the line, although I don't know why!!) on Amazon & I used a Pooh Bear cake pan that I bought for myself a few years back, for my daughter's first birthday cake. So, here are the pictures!

Thomas Cake:

I am 100% positive that I tinted the icing way too dark for Thomas' face, but it was my first attempt at character cake decorating in about 10 years, so I was pretty content with it nonetheless.

Pooh Bear Cake:

Thanks for looking! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My First Ever Knitting Project...Completed!! on: June 24, 2007 10:42:11 AM
Hey Everyone. Well, I am extremely new to this site, so please bear with me. I wanted to show everyone the tiny purse I knitted my best friend for her birthday last month. I found a free pattern for it, a great yarn, and went to town. Also, it was my first attempt at knitting, period. I used my little how-to-knit-and-crochet book and different how-to-knit websites to teach myself how to knit. I am so proud of myself! I am currently working on the same purse, only a bigger variation, with the same exact yarn (I loved it so much!). It turned out much smaller than I expected, but my best friend doesn't like big purses, so it actually worked out pretty good. I haven't posted enough times to be allowed to post my actual pictures, so you can view them here:

Here's a close-up of the stitches:

Anyway,I hope you all enjoyed it! If you have any other free & easy knitting patterns you'd like to pass on, I'd love to see them! Have a great day!  Smiley
