51  Re: It's impossible to find a pattern for a stitch like this! RAWG RAWG! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Bugaboo1 on: December 14, 2007 09:00:04 AM
I was thinking something like this

then do this to it

then do a rib around the bottom once they are all woven in the pattern you like
it's possible in crochet just a matter of figuring out the construction

I had the opportunity to angel for someone. Here's the shopping list
shopping list         
16 guage craft wire      $1.49   
hair pom poms      $0.99   
dowel      $0.00   free-had a scrap from making a crochet hook
bells      $0.79   
home spun pink      $0.50   
homespun white      $0.50   church basement sale
green yarn (6 skeins)         
grey yarn (5 skeins)      $2.00   church basement sale
brass rings (3)      3.87   
hook on end of cat toy free from stash

And now the pictures

Blue wanted something for her cat to play with and I thought this would be perfect to scratch, pounce, chase, run through, sleep in, you name it.

I forgot to measure it before I shipped it off but was about 2 feet in length.

Then I made a sort of whip cat toy using the craft wire so it's not really loose  you can bounce it and such. The handle is reinforced with  dowel so it gives something to hold onto.
and I made detachable toys for the end. One is just a child's rubber band that came with the pom pom attached and I crocheted over it to make the attachment, the other is a ring with bells crocheted in.

And here is everything, with the extra supplies I shipped off to her.

54  Re: 12 Days Of Christmas Swap 2007 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Bugaboo1 on: September 22, 2007 10:07:52 PM

Day 1 I received this beautiful hand knit felted hand bag. There is also a small bag inside large enough for gift cards, credit card etc that was wonderful and I started using it as soon as I opened it all. I haven't gotten really good pics yet but I will.
Day 2:

OMG I LOVE them! Tristitia knit these on a US size 1 and thats just amazing. Awesome job I love them love them love them and already have them on...they fit like a glove mmmmm

Day 3:

A beautiful hand knit set with hat, mittens and a scarf/caplet.
The stitching is beautiful and the color choice, which isn't represented well in the pictures, is a light lavender into a pink color that will look great with all my winter coats.

Day 4:

A spinning kit with 4 braids of wool hand dyed by my partner. A wooden drop spindle with a book to teach me to spin. And, a cute card explaining she is not to blame when I really want a spinning wheel soon after I start!

Day 5:

5 wonderful hand made scrap paper journals. Each is unique with stamped pages and recycled papers.

Day 6:


2 coffee mugs in just my size (hehe jumbo) 2 wonderfully hand knit coffee cozies, a bag of frangellico coffee, a bag of giardelli coffee, 2 boxes of chocolates, 2 coffee flavorings one egg nog and one white chocolate and then 6 fabulous quilted coasters. I love them! The colors are perfect for my home and my partner did a beautiful job quilting these!
Also she sent a post card explaining each gift, but, the post card itself is the skyline of Chicago which I love! I have been there and wanted to move there (long story why that couldn't happen) so The postcard itself will be put to use as well.

My LUSHcious day 7:
the package:

The presents:

There is a bath towel in a beautiful deep rust color with a hand crocheted edging. 2 cotton wash cloths, a soap saver with a wonderful vanilla soap inside, a felted scrubber with soap inside, 2 bath bombs and a hunk of handmade soap from LUSH in a wonderful tangerine scent mmmmm

On the 8th day of Christmas swapping

a wonderful beading kit with tons of glass beads, this adorable chest of drawers all hand stamped and painted and 2 sets of pliers.

Yay for day 9!

as always creative and wonderful wrapping alternatives Tristitia used for this swap. The tag alone is gorgeous.

9 (10 but she tied 2 together to justify the 10th being in there lol) skein of yarn. 3 skeins are caron simply soft 2 skeins in a very pretty peach color and one is called bone but looks like a sage green so pretty! 3 skeins of caron bliss in copper thats just wonderful to sit and pet mmmm
then 2 skeins of knit picks merino wool that has been hand dyed into a wonderful color combo of oranges, browns, greens and shades of. The pics don't do it justice at all the pics look like very bright colors but in person it's really a nice blend. A skein of hand painted handspun merino in beautiful muted shades of blues, pinks and burgundies (reminds me of sea glass colors mixed in with a deeper wine) and then a skein of hand spun hand dyed bfl wool in a wonderful combo of blues (tristitia did you spin this yourself?)
all so wonderful I'm petting them, touching and caressing them. Yes I love love love my yarn!

On the tenth day of Christmas swapping Tristitia gave to me......

10 BEAUTIFUL hand made note cards with 3 sets of clear stamps to personalize the cards to anything I would like such as thinking of you, just because, thank you notes etc.

these had to be really time consuming as she cut all this fabulous paper (perfect squares might I add) then sewed them all onto paper, then adhered that to the cards themselves so the backside isn't visible.

On day 11
before they looked like this:
From coryjo: in the white paper with the deer on it and from Tristitia: in the brown paper with the cute felted stocking attached

(those are remnants of coryjo's cookies in the background hehe)
And after:
From coryjo: beads beads and more beads as well as earing loops woohoo

and from tristitia: a miniature tree complete with handmade ornaments out of glass beads, stamped clay and even beaded garland

Day 12 Yipppiiieeeee

From Tristitia hand crocheted gift tags

From CoryJo Goodies (fudge, peanut brittle, cookies, sprinkles, cookie cutters and cocoa mmm)

55  Re: NEWBIES ONLY SWAP ROUND 6 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by Bugaboo1 on: September 17, 2007 09:08:41 AM
About 10 min after I posted how excited I was getting to see everything MY BOX ARRIVED!!!!!

I was so excited I had to rip it open immediately!
These are all the lovely things littlehajerika made for me. 

Here's the box packed full of goodies!

Now I don't now how this one came about but I am so happy it did. The other night I was going nuts trying to find a needle. I have tons of pins but I can never find a sewing needle when I want one. I saw a posting for a needle case and went OMG I need one of those.....Now I have one YAY!

It's so beautiful and will get lots of use!

Then the 1 thing I stated I wanted, if at all possible, I received not one set but 3! Woohoo I am so putting these stitch markers into use tonight!

So so pretty and even though I had not stated Erika made sets so one was just a bit different then the others in the same color way so when I work in the round I know which one is marking my beginning position....yay again so so happy!

This is the coolest item to help with my coffee obsession

Don't mind the slightly dirty mug I've been drinking out of it for hours already today. I love love love this though. Love the fabric, but, the idea is so cool. I am always putting down my coffee...go to pick it up and the coaster comes with it. Or, I walk around the house with it and then stop and look all over for a coaster so I can put it down where I may be. Now both issues are solved in one.

And then there were these

These are so cute. Just blank note cards with fabric sewn on in a quilt like manner. These are great! Who doesn't always need a note card some time? and these make it so personal and they are such beautiful fabrics as well.

Thank you sooooo much Erika I absolutely LOVED everything! I'm so happy we just really wanted to let each other go and show us what they love to craft as you are a wonderful sewer, you had great ideas and everything if not already in use within 30 seconds of ripping that box open, will be in use by nights end.

Now I'm anxious to see how you like all my items and to see everyone else's stuff.

These were so easy and look a bit nicer for a mom then reusable nappys

I rolled them all like this for presentation

58  Illusion Crochet Baby Blanket ~semi image heavy~ in Crochet: Completed Projects by Bugaboo1 on: September 01, 2007 02:39:26 PM
A friend of mine has 1 bio child and adopted 4 others. She said to me, after I was semi complaining about going to the 12th baby shower in 2 years to only 4 parents (meaning they are having baby showers for every kid they have every year), that she never had a baby shower. When she had her bio child she was very ill and no one wanted to jinks it. With the adopted children no one ever thought to throw her one. So I did via USPS. Here's one of the results a cute cute baby afghan

The camera pics up the hearts more then they show by the naked eye. You really see stripes of blue and white
Then when you lay the blanket down you see this
