4851  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap - Round 23 on: June 21, 2007 09:59:20 AM
I claim Atsuko for:

mushroom fabric and I'll PM you about something else.

This is my 5th claim (3 received and 1 in the mail).

I live in Alberta, Canada and despite what everyone thinks - it's not that expensive to send to Canada (way cheaper than me sending to the US) 

This is my biggest wish right now - I have themes in my house and just put out my summer items and realized I'm in need of some more things for this season.  For summer I have summer flowers, vegetables and little boys (let me explain that one - I made 3 little boys out of wood and one is holding a sail boat, one is with his dog and one is playing in a puddle, plus I have a stuffed boy holding a bat and ball).  So, if you want to make me something out of wood, cross stitch, painted or whatever else you can think of that features either summer flowers, little boys or vegetables please! I'd be thrilled.  I have enough items for my shelf so whatever you make should be able to hang on the wall.

Orange cotton fabric that's not too girly.  I'm starting to collect fabric to make my oldest son a quilt and orange is his favorite color - FQ minimum/piece, please

Cotton fabric with craft related theme - FQ minimum/piece, please

Cotton fabric with these themes -  ice cream cones, popsicles, chocolate bars, other candies, (okay, basically any kind of 'junk' food but no fruits and veggies as I have lots of those already) -  FQ minimum/piece please

Knit fingerless gloves in black or navy blue or dark green - I wear a ladies size large

Some tea towels with toppers on them so I can hang them from my stove.  Sewn, knit or crochet toppers are great and any color except black for the toppers and white for the tea towels.

I have plans to make this doll http://www.paradisedolls.com/p083.html (except mine will have silver accents rather than gold) and I'm still in the collecting stage so, I'm looking for:
     - any silver charms that would suit this dress (such as scissors, brush, mirror, etc.)
     - silver old fashioned buttons with pearls in the center,

I have a very small wist list but feel free to check it out!

An amigurumi teddy bear (really small), penguin or pig (small)

Tigger or Eeyore crocheted in thread (I can even provide the pattern)

I've been know to stall this swap on this round for some strange reason so, if I do, I'll try to add more stuff if I can think of it.
4852  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - JUNE on: June 21, 2007 08:07:35 AM
I just wanted to let you all know that we are going to be on holidays from June 23 - July 2nd so I won't have July's squares on the board until after we get back.  I have them picked out and I'm going to take the patterns and yarn with me to try them before posting.

I'm still working on June's squares and can't stand the feeling of being 'behind'.  I also don't like the mistakes I'm finding in the experienced square but, thankfully, I've been able to figure them out.  That will teach me for not trying the squares before I post them  Grin

Oh great, more choices!

I think I have to change my vote from #2 to McJulie-O's first suggestion (with the stripes).

#2 is the best layout, in my opinion.

I was wondering about the "eye-spy" theme-- so the blue patch on bottom right would be something like "I spy a monkey, what do you see?" 

Not quite like that (I know you can't see that square very good but it's actually the Cat in the Hat).  Here's what I plan to do:

I sat down with the quilt and found 30 items on it that a child and/or parent and child can look for and then I'm planning to make that into an alphabetized list, cover it with plastic and give it with the quilt.

Here's an 'example' list for the following 2 squares (can you find them all)

I Spy:

pitchfork          mouse eating corn          backpack
weathervane    ruler                             3 chickens
hammer           horse                            clock


When you have an entire quilt to look over, it takes awhile to find everything.  I realize that when a baby is very small the quilt is just something pretty for them to look at but as they grow older, it becomes educational in a fun way!

CONGRATULATIONS!  Can't beat that pink project  Grin
4857  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Kiwi tart on: June 19, 2007 06:40:42 AM
This is wonderful, so realistic.

I've just learned about polymer clay recently and I'm amazed at what people can do with it.  I haven't tried it myself but I've received some in swaps and I'm blown away by how small and intricate people can make things.

I, too, was slightly beyond Jr. High in 1983 but it would certainly have been something I would have wanted at the time.  I love granny squares and those colors together.  I remember starting a purple and pink afghan back in 1981 but it got set aside until I 'found it again' in 1990 and finished it but by then, those colors were out and I was married and hubby wasn't thrilled with those colors so I gave it away.

Great job on this afghan!

This is fantastic!  I have a 15 yo son who is addicted to Archie Comics and has them everywhere in the house - he would love something like this.  Tuck this idea away for whenever he gets his own house  Grin

The funny thing about simple quilts is that we, as quilters, always want to do something elaborate and fantastic,

I agree - also, I didn't have enough of the backing material I wanted to use to make this quilt any larger so I didn't put a border around the front and that went against everything I've ever learned in quilting.

I don't have a picture of the backing but it's Precious Moment's material.
