1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / funky black purse swap - pictures! on: April 25, 2005 04:01:28 PM
Hello!  I recieved my purse, and since i didn't see a post for it yet thought I'd start one!

Craftaddict...i LOVE the purse!  Especially the lining--so retro cool!  The pins are fabulous!

Just so you get an idea of what she sent me, i'm going to try my best to describe it (i don't have a camera, so if you have one Craftaddict and took a picture, please post it!). 

It's a black clutch type bag, with a cut-out handle.  The outside is black (duh) and the inside is a retro-y polka-dot print in orange and watermelon.  There are three flower pins on the outside and in the center of each is one of my favorite people (one has Audrey Hepburn, another David Bowie and a third has Ed Norton).  It's absolutely fabulous!

Thank you so much.  I just want to give you a heads up, i may not be mailing out until the end of the week.  I appologize for that (its kinda crappy) but I've got grad school to finish up and some family business to take care of.  I am working on though!  It's cut out (has been for a couple weeks) and embellishments have been added...now just to essemble!

Thank you once again, and look for a  package early next week (i'll expedite it!).

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fulled Lopi--PLEASE HELP ME!!! on: April 08, 2005 10:06:51 PM
I'm almost done with this...i'm on the bottom part.  I don't understand the pattern completely.  Here's what it says:

knit 2 stitches before marker (ok...got it), k2tog (got it), slip marker (what the hell does this mean?), ssk

What does slip marker mean?  Doe it mean slip the stitch that the marker is on and not knit it? 

Thanks for the help.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Ready Set Crochet (Book--is this worth it) on: April 07, 2005 07:39:34 AM
Has anyone taken a peek at this book?  I'm thinking of buying it and was just wondering what people's thoughts were...

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Hooked on Crochet Book? on: March 31, 2005 08:56:31 AM
Has anyone bought this book or checked it out?  I paged through it (as well as Hip to Crochet) quickly and liked the projects in this one a little better.


Thanks for the help!

5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Member Blogs? on: March 30, 2005 01:08:59 PM
I keep running across really cool blogs and I usually forget to bookmark them.  Also, I'm *attempting* to start my own blog.  What if there was a board similar to the website board that offered tips and advice for maintaining a crafty blog as well as a list of member's blogs?

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Crocheted Granny Squares Swap? on: March 30, 2005 07:56:25 AM
This idea was kind of inspired by the Granny bag posted on the crochet part of this site.

We could each crochet one granny square for each of the participants.  I think we'd end up with enough that you could at LEAST make a Granny Square bag!

7  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Felted Bag Knitalong? on: March 26, 2005 12:49:45 PM
Hey fellow craftsters!

I've become somewhat obsessed with felted bags.  However, I've never made one!  I was wondering if anyone would want to join me in kniting the Lopi Tote?  Heres the link:  http://www.helloyarn.com/lopitote.htm

I was planning on doing it in black lambs pride wool and then embroidering something on the outside (maybe something sparkly like sequins!)

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Grommets? on: March 24, 2005 02:04:58 PM
Ok...I have NO idea where to post this...

I've got a few projects in mind (specifically belts and bags) that i would need to use grommets for.  Can someone give me an explination on how these things work?  Do you cut a hole in the fabric prior to inserting the grommet or just hammer it through?  What tools do i need?

Thank you in advance!
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Sublime Stitching Tribute? on: March 24, 2005 07:23:36 AM
Ok...I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jenny's designs--i would go as far as to say I'm addicted.  I've also become fascinated with crewel working. 

 I'm proposing a swap that is embroidery oriented and it can be on whatever you want....towels, seat covers, pillowcases, etc.  This is quite an undertaking, so I would think we'd have a two week sign-up with a month or so to complete the project.  I'd leave it up to the partners to decide how many items they want to exchange.


10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby items for BF's Sister-in-Law? on: March 21, 2005 09:06:46 AM
my boyfriend of two years sister-in-law is having her second child in April.  I was originally going to make her a quilt, but I think i've run out of time--and one of the grandmas-to-be is crocheting a quilt so i didn't want to step on any toes either.

Any suggestions on what would be appropriate for me to make? 

Thanks for the help,
