1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: [Help] What should I do with my crocheted gears? on: June 20, 2012 12:15:27 PM
I think a bunch of those would make a terrific scarf.

That is AMAZING! I love all the details, like the caution stickers. AND IT LIGHTS UP!

Thanks for the pattern -- what a pretty hat!
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cheeburger, Cheeburger on: October 19, 2011 10:38:15 AM
I am insanely proud of myself. A month ago I didn't know how to crochet at all, but my daughter wanted to get some new craft supplies, so we went to Michaels to pick something out. She saw an amigurumi book and was enchanted, so I figured "Well, she can learn to do that ... how hard can it be?" We bought the book and some hooks. The next day, I went and bought a "learn to crochet" book so I could understand the amigurumi book. Then she got disgusted and gave up, but I became OBSESSIVELY DETERMINED to figure it out.

The instructions in the new book were terrible and had me slip-stitching instead of single crocheting, but I got the Happy Hooker and it finally clicked. I made a couple of scarves and a hat and stuff, and then I was ready for the ultimate challenge:

The amigurumi cheeseburger! Now I've made myself a shawl and want to do some more stuffed toys, and I'm kind of obsessed with lacework. This is why no good can come of a trip to a craft store.

How cute is that!?
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: I've gone skull crazy on: September 21, 2011 12:03:11 PM
Those are adorable! In a creepy dead way, of course.

That is freaking awesome! Are you going to erase and redraw on him periodically?
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Sue Coleman's Dogwood & Hummingbird on: August 17, 2011 11:30:34 AM
That is lovely! From the photos, I had assumed that you had stitched it on overdyed fabric -- stitching that background would have driven me nuts.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Product review: Super Chacopaper (Transfer paper) on: April 24, 2008 03:39:13 PM
I used the super Chacopaper for a recent project. I found that it did transfer nice and bold, and I was pleased that it didn't smear, but the project took a few weeks to complete and the lines faded badly -- I think the transfer medium (whatever it is -- chalk?) just rubbed off.

I ended up having to redraw the pattern more or less freehand with a graphite pencil.

To frame it, you can just stick it in a wooden embroidery hoop with a ribbon for hanging.
