1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / New to quilting on: November 04, 2009 08:43:02 PM

I have seen quilts made with the "bento box" pattern, and they look beautiful!

I was wondering if anyone can help give me advice on quilting in general? I am totally new to it and I dont even know where to start.  Can anybody share with me some good beginner links, or a good book I could start out with?

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Dead as a Doornail Series swap on: September 22, 2009 10:53:51 AM
Would anybody be interested in doing a "Dead a Doornail" by Charlaine Harris themed swap?

Here's a review on what the book is about -

Starred Review. Harris's rousing fifth Sookie Stackhouse fantasy-mystery (after 2004's Dead to the World) pits vampires, were-creatures, shifters and one fairy godmother against a sniper with an apparent aversion to nonhumans. If trying to discover who's behind the shootings isn't enough, the telepathic cocktail waitress from Bon Temps, La., has to cope with a few other distractions: her sexy "Were" friend, Alcide Herveaux, needs her help in his father's bid to become the next leader of the local werewolf pack; her boss, Sam Merlotte (a collie in his spare time), gets shot; her house partly burns down; and what's she to do about the handsome vampire bartender who dresses as a pirate at Sam's place? Between one mishap and another, Sookie is one busy gal. Harris does an admirable job of creating a heroine who's not only interesting but completely believable in a world of the strange and the different. Natural and humorous dialogue and a nicely paced plot that doesn't dwell so much on Sookie's old boyfriends help make this entry the best yet in the series.

6  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Crystal Lace Bolero Along (with pattern link) on: August 04, 2009 08:42:01 PM
I have always wante a Bolero but I am a plus size woman.  I finally found an adjustable pattern that seems pretty easy to make.  And it's really really pretty!  Is anybody interested in making one with me?  Here's the pattern!


EDIT:  Im showing a pic of what my first square looks like.  Im doing mine a bit differently from the pattern, but its turning out lovely!

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Another New Poppet - Meet Claira the Princess Poppet IMG heavy!! on: July 25, 2009 12:26:02 PM
Well I originally wanted to make her an Angel Poppet but I havent been able to pick up everything I need for the wings so her wings are on hold, but for now she's gonna be a "Princess" Poppet.  I'd like to introduce Princess Claira!!

Her dress is a free style dress I made, and it's a cinderella inspired gown, and her body was made entirely of felt.  The yarn is some sparkly yarn I bought at hobby lobby it was on clearance, and I think its gonna be out of print soon...

By the way I used Lovesclutter's version of the 'boobies' for poppets, I think it turned out decent... I tried to sculpt her neck but it didnt turn out as well.

The last pic is Princess Claira being guarded by Lady Stargazer her "knight".  And she's being adored by my other dolls Smiley


8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding a cute ear flap hat pattern free on: July 22, 2009 10:10:21 AM


I am trying to find the pattern to make a ear flap hat like the one in the link above....

There use to be a really cute ear flap hat pattern here but I cant find another pattern like it.  For some reason I cant access this page at all.  Can someone see if you can access this page and maybe copy and paste the pattern for me or something?
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A fluffy hat I made on: July 20, 2009 09:11:41 AM

This is a cute hat I just made a while ago.  Enjoy looking at it!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My First Hat on: June 26, 2009 05:59:49 AM
I finally figured out the hat pattern.  Every time I had ever tried to make it, it came out flat and never held shape.  So I found a great pattern and I changed it a little bit so my hat was more original and it helped!

Sorry the lighting isnt that great, I'll try to get a better pic of it later today sometime.
