11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Diskworld Swap, at least round 2 (or posibuly 3 or 9, 8 anyone, 12, 17 no 5) on: November 03, 2007 09:40:13 AM
Pox, its been done before, but just like on the Disk, these things have a habit of cropping (no not cabbages) up again..... So if all your drinking is beer and the inside of your head is deseptivly larger than the outside, grab your kanagroo and lets see where Rincewind takes us this time.

Anyone out there a member of the church of Om, found fame in Holy wood, a practicing headologist, member of the Alchemists guild, BOOOM (well not any more) or just madly in love with the librarian, Oook (he's not a monkey, really hes not a monkey).

I'm thinking after Christmas, say late Feb. I would be willing to take this one on, but would love to have another swap organiser virgin help me, so we could do it as a joint thing, if thats ok.

So I'm putting it out there to see if anyones interested..........

12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 3 little things to make people smile on: October 29, 2007 03:50:53 PM
I was thinking, after Christmas, say late Jan would anyone be interested in doing a swap where you make 3 little things for 3 different people, like some of earings or a badge or a nice fridge magnet, little things that would fit into small box.

So everyone would send out 3 things to 3 different people and get back 3 things. It would be nice if they were really cheery, somthing to make someone else smile.

Anywho just thought I'd put the idea out there and see what you all think.......

Disco Jack is such a champ, he has the patience of a saint and he got teriyaki chicken as a treat  Grin happy boy
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Big Knit on: September 25, 2007 02:32:16 PM
I've started my little hats for the Innocent Smoothie "Big Knit" for Age Concern (a charity that helps the elderly) and as I just started knitting at the start of the week (literally picked up a set of 5mm's on Monday) I well proud of how the first two came out. I'm using them as a practice in decreasing and stitch type's as well, so there not just for Nana's.


I managed to change colour, purl and decrease, so I'm chuffed.


P.S. Any feedback welcome, I'm very new to knitting so if you see something you think I'm doing wrong please tell me. (I have no Nana near by to teach me these important life skills, she lives in Australia...... Cry)
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Skull bead necklace on: September 22, 2007 10:24:23 AM
I made one of these ages ago for a party in London and got so many comments on it. I've made others with all the beads I have left over from my "wow thats how you do it" over enthusiasm. I wear them to toddler group 'cos it makes all the mum's nervous, especially when I start doing my cross stitch, that and my son thinks its great.

sorry about the quality, my phones dying a death...

P.S. should have put this in polymer clay, whoops.
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first ever knitting project, now with Yay on: September 22, 2007 06:13:55 AM
This is the first thing of mine Ive posted on Craftster, I'm so in love 'cos I used the interwebs to learn to knit (so... much swearing and threatening of the computers mother went into this scarf) and as simple as it is, I'm well proud. Its for my son Jasper (seen here modeling) and I'm going to attempt the beanie and mitten that match. Yay for interweb tutorials and really easy garter stitch patterns......  Grin

I hope the pic's work.....
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Please help with a kitten jumper on: September 21, 2007 03:51:34 PM
Hi, my poor Kitten Sally got hit by a car the other week, she's been operated on and had her leg pinned, but now shes home and stuck in a cage for six weeks and her back ends all shaved. I want to knit her a jumper because the cold weathers moving in and I don't want her to get all cold, so I was wondering do any of you very talented people have a really simple pattern that might work. I'm a serious novice so any help would be muchly appreciated.  Cheesy
