1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Under the Sea Pillowcases! on: June 01, 2009 05:56:04 PM
Made from Sublime Stitching patterns!

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Crochet for charity! Cuteness! on: June 01, 2009 05:45:13 PM
Over on Ravelry in the KFO group, we're crocheting stuffed animals and dolls for orphaned, abused, and abandoned kids in the Chicago area.

Here are a few that I made: more might be on the way!

Would be great to have more folks join in and contribute!~  Wink
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Super-quick 'n easy "lace" choker! 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.

Hi gang - Stitch N' Pitch is coming to Tropicana Field Saturday, June 21, when the Rays take on the Astros.  Just thought I'd give a shout out. There are going to be some awesome items in the goody bags - much, much nicer quality than in years past. I can't wait! Audrey from Needles & Knobs is coordinating some fabulous swag.

Also, if anyone in the bay area is looking for a great deal on Rays opening day tickets, please PM me. I have a special offer!
5  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Swap Angel for TRIPLE KITTY SWAP (FOUND) on: March 07, 2008 02:20:07 PM
naturalcreation's partner flaked on this very simple swap. Won't a fellow cat lover help her out, please?
Link to the original swap thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=223327.0

Details, in naturalcreation's words:

"The items I sent were worth about $61.00. An angel will not have to send this amount in value, but please NO JUNK and no used clothing / re-purposed sweaters, etc.

Kittie's landlords are looking for a Fancy Feast dispenser - i.e. a decorated 4" diameter poster/mailing tube outfitted to dispense Fancy Feasts from a pantry, and Kittie's landlords are looking for a cute decorated cat treat jar (mason jar with hermetic lid). Kittie herself loves natural fur toys and natural feather toys, but she has tons of those from me, so, she would be more then happy with a set of 3 polyfill-and-catnip pillow toys. Approx. 3" x 3" x 1" ea. She is a lazy girl, so, she doesn't need much in the way of toys.

All in all, 3 items are to be sent: 1 thrifted (the mason jar is best because it can be sterilized), 1 inexpensive (the mailing tube), and one nice (the set of 3 cat toys).

To the angel, I can send some sisal cat toys. I ordered the sisal a couple days ago and hopefully it will be here at the beginning of next week. It's organic and natural."  - naturalcreation

Details of swap:
Cat lovers, unite! Triple Kitty Swap is a good way to get more feline in your life. In this swap, you will:

  • Craft one cat-related item for your partner (pillow, stuffie, artwork, anything that has a cat on it!)
  • Craft or purchase one small cat item for your partner's cat (i.e. catnip mice, jingly balls)
    • Purchase a cat item from either a thrift store or regular store (this is for your partner, and not her cat) - again, anything with a cat on it- stationery, statuette, etc.
    Anything you purchase should not be expensive - thus, the thrifting angle. If you don't have a thrift store in town, you may instead craft two cat items of buying one.
    Bottom line, three items, whether crafted or purchased, are to be exchanged.

    If you sign up for this swap, post a little info about your cat(s) in the thread, too!
