1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Crocheted button necklace on: April 25, 2005 08:26:02 AM
I don't know if it was just my computer or not, but when I clicked on the page, it tried to d/l a program with a virus attached.  Just a warning for everyone else to keep an eye on it!  Thank goodness for antivirus programs, eh?
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: What to do w/old keys on: April 24, 2005 07:14:04 AM
I used to work at a nursing home that ended up going out of business.  I had 4 small filing-cabinet sized keys & I didn't want to toss them for memories' sake (I loved working there & was there forever).  Anyways, I strung them on yarn & crocheted a scrunchie, using the keys as beads so to speak.  It's a tad heavier than a plain scrunchie but not any heavier than a scrunchie with beads!  I wouldn't want much more than 3 or 4 keys on it though as they get in the way when putting in your hair...
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Toilet Paper/Paper Towel Rolls on: April 24, 2005 07:00:35 AM
I've covered 3 or 4 rolls with basic crochet (you could sew something, or glue ribbons/fabric/whatever) & then crocheted ties (or again, use ribbon) to tie the group together & used each tube to hold different sized hooks.  I think I cut the rolls down to the height I used.  I did this a while again & I've since got rid of it so I can't share any photos but you get the idea, I think!

I have no idea what the bag actually looks like or how it's made, but the only thing I can think of is trying to unravel the material & hopefully it'll come out in one or two balls, and then you could knit or crochet something out of it, like a bag or a rug or something.  If it doesn't seem like it could come apart, then cut into strips & use the strips to crochet/knit something with it (check out Marlo's Crochet Site for directions on how to cut plastic bags into strips & join them & some crochet patterns for using bags.)

"Spider plants" though not always super-attractive, are also resistant to abuse. I've also had good luck with Jade plants.  I have a dark little hole of an apartment too--so far, it's only flowering plants that don't survive.  When I need color, I have to pop for cut flowers and hope they last at least a week.  Good luck and post what you do!

Funny, my jade plant I got from my grandmother-in-law didn't survive a week!  I do well with cacti & spider plants, like you mentioned, in my apartment.  I don't have windowsills, but I have lots of windows & a bay window in my living room.  I've done well with ivy's, too.

NAYY, but a free pattern for a sewn knitting bag:


There's a matching needle holder on the site, too!

Workbasket closed in 1992.  I have almost every issue - I'm only missing 2 or 3 from the 30's, and 2 or 3 from the last year of publication.  Some of them are in ratty shape, though as I got about 40 of them in one lot at an auction but the owner had it in his basement which had water damage.
