1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Purple Purse on: October 26, 2010 07:05:09 AM
I got some new DROPS Cotton Light yarn the other day and made this cute little purse with it.  This is one of the DROPS patterns from Garnstudio (www.garnstudio.com).

Thanks for looking. Smiley
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone used the flour sack towels from Target? on: September 27, 2009 11:39:02 AM
I have doing a lot of embroidery on my cards and now I am ready to take the plunge and try some towels!  Grin

I picked up a 6-pack of flour sack towels at Target today and thought I was going to pay $5.99 for them, which I thought was pretty good.  Imagine my surprise when they rang up as $1.48!!! No clearance sticker on them or anything!  I am almost considering going back and getting the other 2 packs that were there, but I just want to be sure that it would be worth it.  Since I have nothing else to compare them to, I want to know if they are of decent quality.  They felt fine to me, but what do I know? LOL
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Cards - my own designs on: September 26, 2009 09:13:02 AM
I made some more embroidered cards, but these ones are using pattern designs that I drew myself.  I really didn't have much confidence in my drawing abilities, but when I knew exactly what I wanted to draw, it seemed to flow.  Now, they are no masterpieces, but I am very happy with the finished product. Smiley

As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated. Smiley
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / More Paper Embroidery Cards on: September 08, 2009 07:49:03 PM
I created a couple more cards.  Actually, I'm quite obsessed right now and I am seeing potential patterns all around me. LOL  Even on my paper towels.  These 2 patterns are from rubber stamps.

The first pattern is from a rubber stamp by Pink Cat Studio (www.pinkcatstudio.com)

The next one is a pattern from a rubber stamp by DRS Designs (www.drsdesigns.com)

Feedback is welcome and appreciated.  Thanks for looking!
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Paper Embroidery - cards on: September 07, 2009 02:36:35 PM
I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post, but thought I would try here first.  I recently started doing some paper embroidery and having lots of fun with it.  For patterns, I am using an old book of iron on transfers that I had in my stash.  I would love some feedback on how I am doing with this.  Thanks!!

Thanks for looking!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dischcloths and Bath Mitt on: January 18, 2009 08:32:34 AM
Since I am still a very newbie crocheter (only 3 weeks), I have been making very beginner projects.  I have a book called "Crochet Essentials" which is put out by Leisure Arts and Lion Brand yarn.  I made the Bath Mitt, and 3 of the dishcloth patterns (single, half double and double crochet).  On the bath mitt I used Peaches and Cream yarn (Gumdrop) and on the dishcloths I used Sugar 'n Cream Stripes (Lime and Natural) and Lion Cotton (Sagebrush).  I did make some mistakes on the first 2 dishcloths but by the time I got to the 3rd one, I was mistake free! LOL

Feedback is welcome and appreciated. Smiley
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My second project...easier than the first. on: January 06, 2009 05:41:22 PM
Now this is the project that I probably should have tried for my first one....LOL...since it is smaller and easier.  I got this pattern from the book Crochet Essentials by Leisure Arts/Lion Brand Yarn.   It is supposed to be a toddler size hat, but it fit my son's head.  I made the length a bit longer, but the circumference came out exactly as noted in the pattern.  So I will definitely say its a child size hat since I lengthened it.  It is done in half double crochet as a flat piece and then the side and top are seamed.  The top two corners are then tacked together.  I am not sure I like how the top of the hat comes out, but it was an easy way to quickly make a hat.  I used Vanna's Choice Baby yarn (Goldfish) and a size J crochet hook.

Feedback is welcome and appreciated for this very newbie crocheter!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first finished crochet project on: January 06, 2009 08:10:30 AM
I am a super beginner as I only (FINALLY) learned to crochet about a week and a half ago.  This is my first project which is a very small blanket (about 17" x 25") which I figure could either be used as a doll blanket or one to throw over a newborn in a carseat. I used Bernat Berella yarn (Seascape Ombre, Denim Ombre) and a size H hook.  I single crocheted most of it, but because I ran out of the yarn I was using, I half double crocheted the border around in another color.  The border is a little puckered, so I think I need to learn better how to go around corners.  Anyway, I am looking for feedback.  Is it horrible...... or not too bad for a newbie?

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / More Hats on: October 03, 2008 01:42:32 PM
I have to say that I am very proud of my latest hat project because I basically found a style of hat (watchmans hat) I liked and duplicated it on the loom without any pattern.  Now granted it wasnt rocket science since it was just Knit 2, Purl 2 ribbing for the entire hat, but I am still very proud of how it came out and how much it looks like the style of hat I was going for.

I also made this one using a pattern found at www.loomknitting.com (Textured Stripes Hat).  I am also very happy with how this one came out.

Both were done on the new Knifty Knitter Adult Hat Loom.

I recently read on Ravelry (or here...can't remember) where someone said that knitting hats is her crack. LOL  I can totally relate!!

As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated. Smiley
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Girly Hats on: September 27, 2008 12:13:17 PM
I have been making a bunch of hats lately on my Knifty Knitter Adult Hat Loom and a friend suggested that I make some girly hats.  I guess I had been using too many dark colors. LOL

These are what I came up with.  They are done in garter stitch with Bernat Softee Chunky yarn (Denim Ragg, Light Antique Rose).  The flowers were made on the KK spool knitter using Bernat Super Value yarn.  I knit on the spool until it was about 15" long and then shaped and sewed it together to complete the flower.

Feedback is welcome and appreciated. Smiley
