1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / St Patrick's Day Dress on: March 15, 2008 07:01:38 PM
Made this up last night for my daughter's party on Monday. Just turned an old T upside down, added the skirt and straps and painted on a leprechaun girl and rainbow. She has already been enjoying it.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Painting the fireplace on: February 01, 2008 08:32:42 AM
I recently painted the fireplace mantel. The old all-white version was just too dull. The imagery in the 2 main panels is a scene of my family camping out in the mountains. I'm fishing, my husband is playing guitar, and my kids are in the stream. But the dog is not our real dog. Instead of painting our real dog, I painted a well-behaved dog.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Newbie needing help reading pattern on: January 21, 2008 12:36:40 PM
Hi I am just learning crochet. I have the basic stitches down but am having trouble with my "easy" pattern for an infant hat.
(it is lion brand pattern 60422: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60422.html )

I would love any help with this :-) I am so excited with this new craft I have learned and don't want to get stuck on this aspect of it. Thanks!

Here is where I am at: (black is their pattern, red is my interpretation and questions)
Using 1 strand each of A, B, C, and D held together, ch 34 (38, 42).
Making smallest size. Chained 34. Check.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and every ch across 33 (37, 41) sts.
Single crocheted back across for a total of 33 single crochets. Check.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, (ch 1, sk 1 sc, sc in next sc) across 16 (18, 20) ch-1 sp.
Chained 1, turned. Single crocheted. So.... stuff in parens means to repeat for the whole row, right. ok so I repeated the bit in parens 16 times to get to the end of my previous row. So what does the last bit mean, the "16 (18, 20) ch-1 sp." ? How many stitches will be on this row total when I am done? And what is the difference between "Ch 1" and "Ch-1" ?
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, (ch 1, sk ch-1 sp, sc in next sc) across.
ok, once my above question is answered, i think i would just want to know here: what is my final stitch count on this row when it is done?
Rows 4-8: Repeat Row 3.
and what would the final stitch count be for each of these 5 rows?
5  COOKING / Dessert / Spooky Cake on: January 20, 2008 04:48:32 PM
This one was for my husband's birthday (which is right before Halloween). The decorations were inspired by a drawing the the Half Price Books 2007 Calendar. The inside is chocolate, the BEST chocolate cake recipe ever! It is the one on the back of Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / New Life for the Beige Fridge on: January 16, 2008 09:43:54 AM
Had to get rid of the beige, but the fridge was perfectly good so...
Decoupaged it with MAD magazine ad spoofs and coated with polyurethane. The two black areas i painted with chalk paint; the top is for adult notes (ie the grocery list, etc) and the bottom is for kids to draw on.
