although right now I have gotten a horrendous case of face issues... which is really frustrating. Dang.  I will be 39 in 2 weeks - will it ever end?!!

From one with a few more years experience, NO it won't end  Roll Eyes

General plea for help: I can't get the July Experienced square off the ground, I can't get the math to work out. I even tried drawing it out on paper. Has anyone made it yet?

I wondered when this question was going to hit the board!  I've made the square and ran into trouble too but decided not to say anything and see if others had the same problem I did.

This is what round 2 says:

2: sl st in top of next st in prev rnd. ch-3.  dc in top of next 2 st. work 2 dc, ch-2, 2dc between next 2 st (cluster). *dc in top of next 3 st. work cluster between next 2 st. repeat from * twice. sl st in top of ch-3 to join. (3 st btwn corners)

The only way I could get it to work properly was to modify it this way:

2:  sl st in top of next st in prev rnd.  ch-3.  dc in top of next 2 st.  work 2 dc, ch-2, 2dc between next 2 st (cluster), SKIP NEXT DC, *dc in top of next 3 st. work cluster between next 2 st. repeat from * twice, sl st in top of ch-3 to join.

I'll give you another hint - the designer is not consistent on what she wants you to do - in some rounds you have to skip a dc after doing a cluster or group of stitches and in other rounds you don't.  I found I had to count step by step down the first side on each round to figure out what she was asking for.

That's why I called it experienced - I have to give you all some challenges!   Grin

I'm finished my bags!

This is one of them - they are all approximately 12" x 12" and are fully lined.

                                               


Along with the BLUE and white stripes, these patterns are also available:

Okay, I now feel ancient - those parts you received xladyluckx look like the parts from the typewriter I learned to type on in grade 10!

My son finally got his camera back together - he had dropped it during holidays and it wasn't working so he decided to fix it himself.  He had it in literally a million pieces, got it back together only to discover that he still had some parts left over and not all the buttons worked, so he took it apart again.  This morning, he finished putting it back together but still had parts left over, however, now everything works.

So, I can now post pictures!

I've picked out the fabric I'm going to be using for this round - I'm only in once but I'm going to make 2 extra bags for more choice.

                    IMAGES REMOVED as I've posted other pictures
                   

All bags will be approximately 12x12 except the Pink with designs, it will be wider than it is high (don't have enough fabric to make in the other size.)  I'll post picture of the actual bags when I'm done.

I'm very impressed with the points of your pinwheels.  Whenever I try to make them I end up sewing too far over so that the points are buried in the seams.  Well done!

Thanks!  Practise makes perfect and that's what I've had to do over the years.  Plus, ripping out seams I wasn't happy with and redoing them  Grin
