11  Super-quick 'n easy "lace" choker! in Crochet: Completed Projects by lucy van pelt on: June 10, 2008 06:52:33 PM
When you're in a sort of hurry, and need a lacy choker for a special occasion, well, this one was easy to crochet up in under an hour.

The original recipe called for a kind of glittery gold thread, but all I had in the house was vintage crochet thread in a marigold color. I think it turned out kind of nice. Held together in the rear with a vintage pearly button.

Here's a sneak preview of what I sent to Beckster. I hope she can post better pics of the innards!

The jar: I crocheted a cover so it would look like a jar of violets:

A glimpse of the goodies!

My turn!

I received from beckster, and I am in love with my jar. She did a fabulous job, and everything is adorable.

I apologize for having not gotten a shot before I tore into it, like a greedy kid with a Christmas stocking. It was a cute mason jar with a gingham covering - cute. Anyway...

Buttons, ribbons, temp tattoos, balloons, flowers, puffballs, stamps, erasers, and yarn...postage stamps from Nicaragua, Poland, and Australia...

...and my favorite....tiny dinosaurs...a clown fish, frogs, turtle, roller skate, flies, a butterfly, a bone, a tiny clothespin...and eyeballs...

I'm loving this swap! Sometimes it's the simplest things that make you happiest!

Thanks tons, Beckster! Cheesy

Kittymoose received my package, and she asked me to post pix for her. I rarely fail to disappoint, so I shall do just that:  Grin

First off, a cupcake mini-purse, that she can use to hold jewelry, or hair ties, or whatever she likes. Crocheted with yarn I received from someone on Freecycle.

Then, I took a plain cloth bag I had sitting around the house - brand new, never used, just waiting for something - and hand-sewed a butterfly and dragonfly on it with scrap fabric and rick-rack I had lying around. Kittymoose could use this as a bag for groceries, or hauling books to and from the library...

Finally, I crafted some decorative fridge magnets from an old baseball magnet schedule and Raggedy Ann & Andy graphics from a Little Golden Book!

I hope you can find a use for everything, Megan! I had a blast making this stuff for you!  Wink

Here's what I received from maiziemama. She sure hit the nail right on the head with this one!

Two modern knitting mags plus four vintage knitting mags and books - two from the Sixties, two from the Seventies...hoo boy, the kids and I are having a good laugh over the fashions in this one! My son thought the two dour-looking ladies on the Mohair cover were drag queens!

Tons of yarn - and really really nice yarn...Knit Picks, Esprit, Garnstudio, et. al....plus she sent along a ton of vintage crochet hooks (in sizes I didn't have already! Yay!) some which have the price stamped into them, Boye hooks for 29c!!! I love the colors, and an old Susan Bates swatch gauge (yay again), plus some stitch holders. I am having so much fun even though I have the flu! Thanks, maiziemama!

EDIT: Not only did I have Donny Osmond on my avatar (LOL), but I just noticed this is my 666th post on Craftster! At first I thought that was part of the joke, but hmmm...I guess not! Yikes! <<Someone cue up a little Ozzy!  Grin >>

What an amazing Angel package! Wowsers!  Shocked Chloecat definitely deserves FOC status after that package. Thanks for your patience, Gwen, and thank you too, Vanessa, for stepping up to the plate.

Looks like this swap is a-doner! Thanks all, it was fun! Thanks too to my partner, MandyLikesPie, for my awesome goodies - which are all happily in use!

Goodbye for now, from Spooky!

Well, let me show you what danni.yelly sent me from England!

She really spoiled me, because I asked for specific things, and she didn't have to go all out for me, but she did! I asked for lavender soap - she sent a whole big bottle (it smells awesome). I asked for Yorkshire tea, my favorite, and here's a box with 80 teabags! I also told her I loved the phone boxes  over there, and she found a phone box - which is also a pencil sharpener! I love it! She also sent chocolate and loads of magazines, which the hub and I are enjoying reading by the beach.

Thank you for everything, Danielle! You were very very generous and got everything spot on!!! Yay for England!

RecipeCard sent me an awesome kitty pin cushion. He's pretty sizeable yet light in weight!


Isn't he great? She also included a batch of custom shrinky-dink straight pins.

Thank you so much! He's perfect!
