11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Don't #$%^ with Grey's night! on: July 24, 2017 05:42:49 PM
Oh how appropriate that is around my house right now.  I have a stray kitty (I know she belongs to someone, just haven't found who) and I call her Grey (after Meredith and she is grey).  Well, she just had three babies and had to deal with a storm last night...thus how your sign works for her!

Finally found my pair of flip flops, that I've been holding for a crochet project, today so going to try to tackle this weekend.  Anyway, a couple of weeks ago we went to an event where my mom was sporting the water bottle holder I made for her with a shoulder strap.  When we happened to run into our instructor she made a suggestion because of the cotton stretching over time and I am thinking that it would be the same story with shoes?  She suggested getting some of the transparent thread (Joann's carries one by Coats and Clark) and running it through one side of the shoulder strap and tying it off.  She said it will prevent the stretching and you never see the thread.  It's hard to see the thread even when you're sewing it in!

Can we maybe get a pattern or directed to one?  I have some pretty bad burns and I have to be so picky about shoes now.  Thinking my feet could survive these!
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Your favorite crochet tip... on: April 20, 2017 02:26:50 PM
I just learned to crochet in August, but have found a few things that help me.  I have a little binder clip with one of those page marker things marked with an arrow.  I'm able to move it down the pattern as I need to.  Have also used a dry erase pen on my sheet protectors!  I keep it in my bag as well.

I also have a sheet stand for my patterns.

Plus I use stitch markers when I'm working on circles or anything with changes in stitches.  I put one color at the start of the round.  Another color to use in each spot that I have to double up stitches.  It helps when I have interruptions such as the phone (like now when I'm trying to type this post!
16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Grapevine within metal frame cross on: April 08, 2017 04:35:48 PM
Walking through a cemetery today,we saw several crosses with a metal form filled with grapevine in the shape of a cross.  Went straight to Old Time Pottery,which was the closest floral merchant in the area.  Nothing close.  Hobby Lobby fit after.  Zilch. 

Has anyone seen these in a brick and mortar store?  Knew we should take a photo, but of course didn't.

I know this is an old post, but some info in case anyone checks back in...  Some libraries have Zinio magazine subscriptions.  The library in Nashville includes Crochet and Knitting mags downloadable for free!  The library is paying off the subscription and you can print/save whatever pages you want.  Also search the books feature on iPad and the like.  There are some free and cheap electronic options there as well.

I have a store-bought version and both of my cats love these too!  Obviously it's not a tugging thing, but my cats may think they're dogs anyway!
19  UNITED STATES / Tennessee / The Big Stitch - Nashville, TN on: January 30, 2017 09:37:18 PM
Didn't find anything about this organization listed in this section of the board and thought I'd share. They have an event coming up next on Feb 4, 2017 from 9a-3p. A lot of donated yarn, patterns, crochet hooks, knitting needles and various other supplies will be available for purchase. There are door prize giveaways too! Free classes are held throughout the day, but do require registration. (They are also conducting 4 session classes at various libraries around town.)

Check the website for further details and future events. http://knitandcrochet.org   Direct to Big Stitch page:  http://knitandcrochettn.org/the-big-stitch-2/
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: need your yarn winder opinions! on: October 26, 2016 07:45:04 PM
Would like to kind of renew this topic.  We purchased a Boye electric yarn winder from JoAnn's (while they had a 60% off coupon available making it much less painful).  Got it home and upon opening, it appeared to have been opened before.  It didn't look bad, so we figured it wasn't a big deal.  Plugged it in, plug light lit, but machine wouldn't even try.  Took it back and exchanged it, same issue again.  Took it back and got a refund.  Read reviews online after and read of people complaining about the loudness of it.  Funny, because neither of those ever made a sound! 

Does anyone have any good reviews of an electric yarn winder that doesn't cost the arm that I am trying to give some rest to?  (At JoAnn's, the Boye was $90, bringing it down to $30 with the coupon, just for reference.)
