11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My version of the Record Album Tote/Purse on: June 09, 2006 12:56:42 AM
So I saw a post a LONG time ago about making a tote out of vinyl and a record album.  I bought this awesome King & I record at a library sale and finally made this  about a month ago.
(If the photo doesn't work, I've exceded by website bandwidth.  If you check back later - sometimes 2-3 hrs later - it should be working again! Please be patient as I have a very small bandwidth on my website!)
Thanks for looking!
Here it is:
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Yellow Doily on: June 09, 2006 12:08:18 AM
This project was supposed to have been my first ever crochet project, but... I did some other stuff before finishing this one.  Also, none of this is the original stitches that I put in (ie my first ever try at crocheting).  Somewhere along the way, I messed the pattern up and had to frog the whole thing then start over.  But that one got messed up too, so I frogged it as well.  This is my third attempt.  I shortened the pattern some because I hate the color...I'll never use a yellow doily...my room is red, black, and white!  I may do another one someday with the entire pattern in white or black.  Anyway, here it is in all its yellow glory!
Also, it hasn't been starched yet, so it isn't laying flat in the photo, but you get the idea.
13  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Amish quilt patterns on: June 06, 2006 12:28:50 AM
Does anyone know of any good websites or books that explain different Amish quilt tops?  I love the look of their quilts, but I'm sure I could make them myself for less money and with more personal value.  Thanks!
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Big Long To-Do List on: June 06, 2006 12:11:41 AM
Ok, so I'm sure I'm not the only one that has a big long to-do list of crochet projects.  Well, I've got a few questions for those like me.
1. When do you find the time to make all your projects?
2. How do fund your projects?
3. What do you do with them once they're finished?  Especially if they aren't "purposed" items like hats, scarves, and purses?
Thanks for answering!
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Filet Crochet? on: June 06, 2006 12:03:15 AM
Are there any good online sources to learn to filet crochet?  I know how to crochet already, but I've seen lots of completed projects done in the filet style and would love to learn.  My grandmother said it's easy and explained what it is, but she didn't have time to actually show me.  Thanks!
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What do you do with your stash? on: June 06, 2006 12:00:50 AM
Hi!  I've started buying sale yarns that I just love.  Plus, I have some leftover stash yarns...some are just half-skeins, some I have 2-3 skeins.  What do you do with all your stash yarns?  (Especially those that you just have 1 skein or less of!)  Ideas for all types of yarn & threads would be great!   I love to experiment with different yarns, but right now they're just taking up room!  I'm really into useful items, so those ideas would be most appreciated.  Thanks!
17  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / 3 Pages on: June 02, 2006 10:41:45 PM
I created these 3 pages for my England scrapbook.  All are 8 1/2" by 11".  I found a pretty album I liked, so I had to create smaller pages.  All pages were photographed on a black background so there are black borders on each photo.  Also, when I reduced the photo size to save on bandwidth, some of the crispness was lost.  Sorry about that!
(If these photos are not working, I have exceded my bandwidth allowance.  Please try again in a few hours.  Thanks!)
The first is an intro page.  I used a Europe sticker sheet, and placed the stickers on the page that corresponded to the countries I visited on that trip.  Thus, no Spain, Portugal, etc.

This one is my London Theatre page.  It is a pocket page with all of my theatre tickets & brochures about the productions I saw.  The title is cut to resemble a torn ticket.

The last one is of my friend and I (faces rubbed out) on the London Eye (the big ferris wheel).  The little box in the middle is a journaling box that I rubbed out on photo editor to protect privacy.  The little photo in the middle is our ticket.

Hope you liked them!
18  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Low-Sodium on: May 23, 2006 10:31:47 PM
Hi everyone!
I'm looking for some good low-sodium recipes (preferably low-fat, low cholesterol as well).  However, I still want tasty food!  lol...I know I'm asking a lot!  But if you could help, I would appreciate it!  Thanks!
19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Thank You Card on: May 21, 2006 01:35:56 PM
I made this thank you card for a friend.  Thought I'd share it.
I used my Stampin'Up stamps and my Sizzix machine!
Sorry the photo quality isn't great.  (BTW: if my photos aren't working, my site has exceded its bandwidth.  If you wait a couple of hours, they will work again.)
The front of the card.  The purple block w/orange flower is a cutout.

The inside.  The flower can be seen on the front of the card.  The brown "block" on the left is actually the cut out part, I just had a cardboard box behind for a backdrop.

Thanks for looking!
20  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: "The Neglected Project" Crochet-along on: May 17, 2006 12:40:39 PM
Hi everyone!
Do you have an unfinished project that has been sitting on the shelf for a week, a month, a year, or longer *gasp!*?  If you do, then you are a member of the Neglected Project Club (NPC).
Ok, so I'm sure I'm not the only one in the NPC.  So, I'm calling all of you NPC members to join this craft-along.  The only requirement is that we all make a pledge not to start another new project until our old ones are complete!
Hold up your right hand and repeat after me: "I, (YOUR NAME HERE!), do solemnly promise not to start any new crochet projects until I have completed my neglected projects that have been so patiently waiting for me to get back to them."
GREAT JOB!  Now, here's what you do on this board.  Make a list of your neglected crochet projects and post them here.  If you can, you might also want to post photos of where you are in the project (for a Before and After shot).  Then, get busy finishing up those projects and post the completed pictures on the complete projects board with a link from here to the new post!  Then, feel very proud of yourself b/c you don't have any projects nagging at you!  (Oh, and you'll have to resign your membership in the NPC!)
