I got my package from apandalee a few days ago, but my husband had comandeered the camera for something at work. It is a really cool purple necklace and zippered pouch. Great work! Thanks so much, apandalee, I love them both!

The whole package:

2  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Crochet Olympics Official Thread... on: February 11, 2006 03:47:01 PM
In the final hours of training I found my yarn for my primary project! Yippee! Despite the fact that I did not intend for my first attempt at yarn dying to be part of my challenge, it will be. I found a lovely, soft, and dyable wool from Lion Brand called Fishermans Wool, or something like that. For now I'm working on making my UFOs FOs since I still haven't decided on my stitch pattern. Nothing like the meditation of crocheting to help me figure it out. I'm doubly excited because I got my new crochet encyclopedia in the mail to inspire me. Woohoo! I'm a happy hooker!

I finally decided on a yarn for my zafu cover. Got to the store and it was 19.99/skein and I needed three...so now I'm back to figuring out what the *(&(^ I'm going to make this thing out of! Still training by finishing my shrug.

This website does a great job of explaining them.

Are you thinking anything dog related, or actual items that are dogs in some shape, form, or fashion?

I worked on a circular shrug over the weekend when I should have been finishing my Mom and Dad's Christmas presents. Oh, well! Anyway, I'm having the opposite feelings as lilepad because after working the shrug (not yet completed, hopefully by tonight and I can post) I am worried that my Zafu cover isn't big enough. I did, however, finally decide on a yarn to use for it. I will be adding to my Olympic feat, just to up the ante, finishing the aforementioned presents AND the zafu cover! Okay, now I'm nervous.

I received the items from mjadams today and love, love, LOVE everything!!! Grin
Here's all the items:

Unfortunatley, the BEAUTIFUL stone on the necklace didn't translate in the photo, but it is stunning!

trifarina...I, too, thought this was going to be an Amish inspired swap. I initially clicked on it to see how that was going to work out. Glad I did!

I'm all about this one! Part of what I enjoy about the swaps is learning more about another person, which exposes me to crafts and mediums and color palattes I might not explore on my own. For example, I'm working on an apron for a person who does pottery and ceramics. It's my little way of craftily living vicariously through other people.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Re: any rain barrel advice? on: January 24, 2006 11:16:17 AM
I had a very primative rain barrel a couple of years ago. The landlord wouldn't fix a corner where the cutter was broken and rain would pour into my garden, disrupting all my new plantings. Argh! I put a large trash can under the downpour and, voila!, free water for the garden! I'd just dip my watering can down into the barrel to retrieve. However, I'd recommend doing what the website says for a spigot. I also second Inna's suggestion to have a mosquito control method. There are natural mosquito killers for water features available at gardening centers, or you can check out gardeners.com.
