4901  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: would you guys want to know... on: June 06, 2007 07:19:25 AM
Quote from: thriftjunkie
so...would anyone NOT want to know if their craftster name was spelled wrong?

This was an interesting thread to read.

I would never PM someone to tell them their screen name was spelled wrong because maybe that's how they wanted it spelled and, who cares really, it's a screen name!

I am a real stickler for spelling and it drives me nuts when I see posts full of mistakes but I don't do anything about them because, in the whole scheme of life, it doesn't really matter.  I will only comment if someone asks if they have spelled something wrong and then I send them a PM rather than post it on the board.

I always read over my posts to make sure I don't miss something and if I do miss something, I correct it as soon as I notice.  Grin  Previewing posts is also a very good idea.

My notifications are working for other boards (I got 2 today already.)

There is this one line in the notifications:

More topics may be posted, but you won't receive more email notifications until you return to the board and read some of them.

Just a suggestion - be sure to go and read some posts after each notification.

Has anyone else received recently? Just curious.

I've been wondering the same thing - this is the quietest swap I've ever been in!!

This board has been very quiet and the gallery even more so and since the mailout deadline has passed, I thought we should start seeing more pictures.  Has everyone sent yet?

Have you finished your squares ? I haven't even started the Easy one, but it looks a very pretty pattern. I am waiting to see your pics.

I have both of them started and hope to finish them this week then I'll get pictures up.  You better wear sunglasses because the colors I used for the experienced square are rather bright  Cool

Not sure if I've stalled or this round is moving very slowly!  I've added to my list (2 posts above this) and am soon headed to work so I'll check in later in the afternoon and if no one has claimed me, I'll try and come up with some more items.

Any chance of the actual Frankenteddy?

I have my frankenteddy about 3/4 finished and hope to get it done this month.  I'll post it in the frankenteddy gallery.

I claim Dulcinea for:

squares to make an afghan -  6" x 6", I think.  I decided I wanted a new afghan, so if you wanted to use up stash, I'll put them all together

This is my 3rd claim (0 sent)

I live in Alberta, Canada.

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 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 or little boys, 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,

Draft stopper - either a whimsical snowman like this:  http://www.nextag.com/Whimsical-Draft-Stoppers-from-543346002/prices-html?nxtg=e9150a1c0521-B41449EF57A81ED1 or a more plain one like this:  http://www.improvementscatalog.com/product/id/101933.do but in a nice bright material (or material with snowmen or snowflakes on it.  I'm not looking for someone to buy these ones I'm showing, they are just examples of what I'm looking for - it's for my back door so would need to be long enough to block a standard door.

Cross stitch picture featuring a tulip or summer flowers (not too small, please)

Sewing thread in white, black, tan, medium blue, green.

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

A fabric carrier for either a 9x13 pan or a round casserole dish.

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

A candy goodie box (this would be especially fun if you live in a non-North American country.)  I've had 2 such packages before and totally loved them but now I'm out so I'd love more.  No chocolate please as I'm allergic to it.  A few things I like are sour candy, chewy candy, dutch licorice but I won't turn other kinds away

They say that confession is good for the soul, so I better confess that I actually made this item a few months ago but decided to hold off posting a picture until June because it was pink!

I was part of the Frankenteddy swap and decided I would make a practise one before the swap and this is what I came up with:


I was thinking of giving it to friends who had a baby girl a few months ago but decided that the arms and legs weren't attached good enough for a toy (the button eyes were added after deciding to keep it.)

Great job!  I'm loving all the bright colors you are using!
