I thought I did pretty good for postage - if packages going to the US are less than 100 grams they only cost $1.86 but anything over that it goes up to $3.66.  Thankfully my packages going to the US (3 of them) were all under 100 grams (one of them was 99 grams  Grin )

amdm, you are a genius (maybe you should be running this CAL!)  I tried your directions and they worked out just fine.  I'm going to copy them and put them in my June post so that others can get this correct.  THANKS!!

i have a question.. when i was trying to do the birthday flower square, i ended up with frills, ALOT. what makes it to frill?

Without seeing a picture of it, I'm guessing too many stitches in one or more rounds.  Could you post a picture of what you have so far and maybe I, or someone else, can help better.

It's that time again!

I'm in the process of making this easy square and am finding it very easy, however, the designer has it listed on her site as 'challenging' - I trust that those of you that are newer to crochet won't have any troubles with it.  Just be sure to read the instructions carefully - truly, it's not hard!


I'm giving you more experienced people a challenge this month with the experienced square.  I really want to make it and gave it a try but got stuck on round 3!  I haven't given up but just can't figure it out so I thought maybe someone here could.  So, here's my challenge - if you can figure it out, PLEASE tell me and the rest of us what you did.  In the mean time, I'll keep trying to get past this round.


amdm figured out the solution and here's the new Round 3 she came up with (and it works!!!):

Rnd 3 : join red, sc in same st, 2 sc in next st, fptr in Rnd 1, *skip the st directly behind the fptr on Rnd 3, 2 sc in next, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st. Skip 1 dc on Rnd 1, fptr around next dc on Rnd 1.  Continue from * till last st on Rnd 3, 2 sc into last st, join with sl st.

Be sure to post pictures as you get these and other months done  Grin

I received a package of buttons from xladyluckx today.  I'm using them for a doll dress I plan to crochet in the not too distant future.

As I said earlier this month, my project was going to be very simple.  I decided against using anything metal to craft with since that's just not my 'thing', instead I used gold colored paper.  I'm just learning to do origami and so I thought I would try it for this month.  The hardest part of this entire process was trying to get a decent picture.  I've discovered gold paper is not very forgiving so every little crease shows up, even when you don't want it to!

May I present my gold suit (made with just one piece of paper):


I know that black is not a color this month but since it was so hard to get a decent picture of the gold, I wanted to show the black suit I made as it's a much better example:

How long did it take?

That's hard to answer since I did it on and off over a number of months.  I would estimate that each jar took less than 1/2 an hour to make.  As for the rest, I have no idea total time.

I can't believe I'm doing this because I wasn't going to make another claim but I guess I'm addicted!

I claim Mlsocci74 for:

I would love some fabric in fun small patterns (for my hair ponies).

This is my 7th claim (4 received, 2 mailed)

I live in Alberta, Canada.

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 trumpets and/or clarinets on it - 1/2 yard minimum, please

Laurel Burch's Hearts and Hummingbirds fabric in lavender - 1/2 yard minimum, please

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 

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)

Winnie the Pooh, Tigger or Eyeore crocheted in thread (I already have Piglet and he's getting lonely)

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.

I'm looking for something to hang from my gold chain - either a heart, a ring circled with 'diamonds', or a sandal - I don't want charms, I'd rather have something that I can just put the chain through and it would hang loose (hopefully that makes sense - I've seen the diamond ring but it was in silver)  This website:  http://pubcan.fifthavenuecollection.com/shopping/Gallery/Gallery.asp?Gallery=Neckpieces&Page=11&Product=2124 gives an example of the sandal.

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

Would someone mind linking to the original tute?

Is this too hard for a beginner?  I sew, but I've never quilted...

The original tute was only for the jar, the rest I did on my own.


If you can sew, you should be able to make these jars and it's fairly basic quilting so you should be able to do it.
