11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Agatha Christie-inspired hat on: December 21, 2008 10:42:44 AM
I was at Michael's the other day, and found some really cute ribbon in the bargain bin.   Had to buy it.  Then the question arose as to what do do with said ribbon.  After pawing through my stash, I found some really pretty green Wool-Ease yarn.  Add an H hook and a button, and ta-da!

And I just realized that you can see all of my craft stuff piled up next to my computer monitor...I guess I should clean that up.   Cheesy
12  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Fat Kitty on: November 22, 2008 01:52:42 PM
I recently got to participate in the Pincushion swap and ended up making an ami kitty for my partner.

She's made of a super soft, sport weight nylon/acrylic blend yarn and #10 crochet thread.  The eyes are 6mm safety eyes and the nose and whiskers are embroidery thread.  I am pretty happy with the way she came out.  I made her up as I went along - my first Ami without using a pattern!!  Cheesy

Thanks for looking!  Grin

13  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / Newberg, OR: Newberg Farmers and Artisan Market Holiday Bazaar on: October 24, 2008 08:33:29 AM
Hi there fabulous crafters!  The Newberg Farmers and Artisan Market is having a holiday bazaar on December 5-6, 2008 at the Newberg Masonic Lodge.  Participants must be present both days.  ALL goods must be handmade.  We are accepting applications and have spots for approximately 20 crafters.  Please send me a PM with your e-mail address and I will send you an application packet. 

The cost for a booth is fairly low - $20 for a 4' space, $30 for a 6' space and $40 for an 8' space pays for both days.  Some tables and some chairs are available at no extra cost if you need them - these are reserved on a first come, first served basis.  This is an indoor function, so no tents needed / allowed.

We will also have food and entertainment - it will be a great activity and we expect good turnout from Newberg and the surrounding communities.  Advertising is planned for the local papers and also the internet.
14  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / Newberg, OR - George Fox University Auxiliary Bazaar on: October 10, 2008 05:47:22 PM
Hey there craftsters!!!  I am so excited!  I was accepted to be a vendor at the George Fox University Auxiliary Bazaar.  It is a fund raiser for GFU scholarships and such.  There will be 20 or so local crafters.  It is Friday, November 7th from 10:00 - 5:30 and Saturday November 8th from 10:00 - 4:00. 

I will have my Soft Goods there  Grin  (See the etsy  Wink ) and a friend of mine who does gorgeous glass fusing will have her stuff there.  Also, another friend who makes wonderful soap will also be there.

I'd love to meet some of my fellow local crafters, and you can support a good cause while also supporting local artisans.

I don't think the auxiliary has a website or anything, but if you want more info, post here or PM me.

15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Retro crafty on: October 10, 2008 04:45:28 PM
So, this past summer I started selling crocheted goodness at our local farmers' and crafters' market.  I had several people come and ask if I knew how to make the crocheted towel toppers.  You know, like on towels that grandma used to have?  I didn't but I certainly learned how. 

I thought I'd share, since I was really surprised by the overwhelming response. 

I used a regular size dish towel and folded it in thirds.  I then used a tapestry needle to blanket stitch along the top folded edge.  Be careful when doing this, as the tapestry needle has a habit of catching the loops of the terrycloth.  I used white cotton yarn along the top.  Then I crocheted a triangular topper, alternating with single crochet on the decrease rows and half double crochet on the even rows.  I used Lily Sugar and Cream multi-color yarn for the topper.  When the topper had decreased to around 12 - 14 stitches, I finished off and then rejoined to make the fastener loop, which is 6 stitches wide.  I think finding coordinating buttons was one of the most fun parts of this project.  I even made a matching dish cloth in the same yarn.   Grin

That being said, here are some pics.  Thanks for looking!

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wedding jewelry on: May 26, 2008 08:47:46 AM
A good friend of mine is getting married, and so I made her some jewelry to go with her dress.

It is freshwater pearls, fire polished glass beads in pewter and crystal clear, sterling silver and gold filled 3mm beads.  (Her dress is ivory, her shoes are pewter-colored, and she is wearing a tiara with pearls on it.)

I am sending it off to her tomorrow.  I hope she likes it!

Any comments are appreciated!  Thanks!
