13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hand-knit bikini picture on: November 26, 2004 08:08:44 AM
I am looking for a killer hand-knit (NOT crocheted!) bikini picture. A pattern would be even better, but I can figure out how to knit by looking at picture.

Thank you!

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Are berets in style? on: November 14, 2004 07:19:34 PM
I made a beret to sell, but now I would like to give it to a friend for Christmas . What do you guys think? Do people wear berets here in the USA? I used to wear berets back in Russia long time ago, so I can not decide if my american friend would like it.

16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Portrait of my dear mommy! on: October 29, 2004 06:12:33 PM
Hi guys! This is my first post in this thread. I design and knit hats, and I ve never done any cross stitch work.

Yesterday I went to a quilt and cross stitch store in Toano, VA and found a beautiful pattern of Colonial Smokehouse in Williamsburg. They had an actual done work also. I could not resist to buy it, although I ve never done a single cross stiched piece. It is huge - 8 sheets of letter size paper. She used only one color thread, so the picture is black & white. You can find it at www.ronnierowedesigns.com under Pen and Ink Collection. Well, I could not believe how beautiful it was (btw, the picture on the site does not represent all the beauty of the actual work), and I was thinking, that I could make a pattern myself and cross stich my mom's, my husband's or somebody else's portrait.

Here is what I've done so far:

My mom's picture, she is in Russia, and I miss her very much:

Here is the pattern:

What do you guys think, did it come out recognizeble? Do you think, it is worth to cross stitch it? Is there anything you would change on the pattern? What color thread should I use? I think, it is going to be brown, it will remind the actual photo.

Please, help me to make my mind! I am a beginner...

I did not have a zipper, so I had to figure out another way to keep the purse closed...
18  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / I won a ribbon!!!! on: October 02, 2004 04:09:43 PM
I won a red ribbon - second in the category 'Fiber' (and $100). Very proud of myself! It was my first juried show. There were 75 (or 78 - not sure) crafters in the juried part of the festival, and they gave away 15 awards. So it was not bad. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / funny or just helpful signs - your ideas? on: September 29, 2004 09:48:36 AM
I am preparing to a show and thinking about how to make my booth easier and more enjoyable for customers to shop.

I made signs for each of my groups/collections, which are very attractive and helpful. And I am thinking if there are any funny sayings or short jokes I could use as a sign at the show to make people smile.

We already have t-shirts which say:

'If the hat fits, BUY IT!' I can actually make a sign with this joke too...
20  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / How to use walls of your booth - just an idea with pictures... on: September 24, 2004 01:08:37 PM
This idea would be good to display you craft on the vertical surface on the level of customers eyes (hats, jewlery, usw)
I would appreciate any other ideas how to improve it. For example, how to secure hats on the board - I just have to pin them right now.

What I did:

1. I bough a big piece of foam board and cut it in 3. Here is 1/3 of the original board:

2. I bought the cheapest fabric in Walmart and made cases for each piece of board (like pillow cases) with strings on the top. You can make strings on the side too, to be able to tie boards to each other when it is windy.
