Ooh, that's lovely. I think it looks fine as it is - it's more of a decorative item than something to keep you warm, after all. Beautiful colour of yarn too. Good job!
42  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Another DIY tote on: June 16, 2007 01:25:25 AM
I bought the fabric for this ages ago, and then had problems finding interfacing. I finally got hold of some this week, so yesterday I decided to go for it. I have huge problems cutting straight lines, but it turned out OK, despite my sewing machine throwing a fit towards the end of the sewing session. At last I have a knitting bag for my SnB meetings that I don't need to empty out each week.  Cheesy


FYI: The delightful yellow woodwork/blue paint combo will soon be gone - that's my hobby room, which is destined to become a guest room.
43  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / A couple of necklaces on: June 11, 2007 10:29:43 AM
These are my first pictures on Craftster *tiny drumroll*

First up is this pendant I made with carnelian beads. I love carnelian soooo much. I need more chains though - I keep taking pendants off  one chain and switching them.

This next necklace is a mishmash of stuff I had laying around. I've been wanting to use that seed....nut...pod thing for a while, and suddenly decided to make this necklace today:

The photos aren't great - I'm using my husband's camera, and the macro function on it hates me. Plus I'm not in a 'modelling' mood at the moment. I may try to get better pics of them 'in action' at a later date.

Anyway, there you go. A lurker no more.  Cheesy
44  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Long term lurker breaking free! on: June 11, 2007 12:36:03 AM
Hello all. I've been lurking here for over 2 years, and in that time, I've managed 3 posts (this is the fourth). So I thought I should introduce myself, in the hope that it will inspire me to post more often.

I'm a 34-year old Brit living in the Netherlands, and I share my house with my OH and two cats.

I enjoy cross stitch (haven't done that for ages after a particularly labour-intensive gift gave my stitch-fatigue), embroidery (re-teaching myself with the help of Sublime Stitching), knitting (I am teaching my SnB ladies a few new choice words  Wink), sewing (I can hem, let's leave it at that for now), beading/jewellery (this I can do - yay me!) and card-making (another success story).

I look forward to chatting with you, and putting into posts all the future 'oooh, that's gorgeous!' type comments that I've been muttering to myself over the past couple of years.  Cheesy

I remember there being about 30 19" strands of seed beads.  I actually bought the beads on Ebay from a really fabulous seller.  If you're interested in who, you can PM me. I like to think of her store as my little secret, but I'll share;)

That's very kind of you.  Smiley

I'd don't have any of the cones left so I'm just going to guess at the size.  I think the opening was around the size of a dime.  If you put it on top of your index finger it would end just above the middle knuckle.  I hope that makes sense.

It does indeed. I think the cones I've seen are too small for a necklace of that size, so I might have to make it with fewer strands. Which would also be OK.

I really, really like that. So much so that I've come out of my usual lurkdom (I like to potter about, drooling over pictures of other people's work) to say so. And also to ask a question: what size bead cones did you use? I'm guessing there's about 15 strands of beads, and the cones I'm looking at are either short and thin or long and thin (with largest opening 1cm). I'd love to make something similar for myself (I'm thinking of something in green), so any advice would be appreciated, thank you.

I would love to make one of these for my cats, but I can't seem to get the link to the tutorial to work.
