6391  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: My wife is creeped out by me chrocheting....... on: January 21, 2006 07:57:58 AM
Of course you should keep it up!

I remember when I was growing up there was a man my parents were friends with who knitted.  In the last few years I have done crochet exchanges with a man and wow! can he crochet.  He tackled things I wouldn't dream of.  I also know of an older man who does needle point and a man who does decorative told painting.

Handwork is definitely not just for women!  I do wood work and have never heard anyone complain because I use men's tools - other than when I am using the saw my husband wants for his project  Grin

I've e-mailed you privately.  Hopefully your e-mail won't block my message (as I've had others do)
6393  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I Spy Quilts on: January 20, 2006 06:14:55 PM
What a neat idea!  We loved I Spy books and bags when my boys were younger.  Now I'm going to have to get together some material and try making one of these for a baby gift.
6394  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Rotary Cutters on: January 20, 2006 06:11:31 PM
Oh I'm so glad I found this post!  The cutter I've had for 10 years decided to start giving me trouble a few days ago and some I'm going to replace it - don't even know the brand but it was cheap.  I was leaning towards Olfa and think that's what I'll get after reading this.
6395  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question help me out please??? on: January 20, 2006 05:53:49 PM
What that means is that the 'design' part of the pattern takes 8 stitches per section - so when you make the foundation chain, it needs to be a multiple of 8 (like, 64, 72, 80, 88, etc.) plus you have to add 5 stitches for turning and starting row two.  91 stitches won't work for this pattern so you need to take it back to 85 or add more stitches to make 93.  Hope that makes sense.
6396  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: granny squares on: January 20, 2006 05:47:37 PM
Granny squares are one of my favorite things to make!  I learned to make a traditional granny and that's all I made for many years but then, I found the internet! and found that there are literally hundreds of different patterns.  I love doing searches for new and interesting patterns and trying them.  Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't but you just keep trying.

How cute!  When cabbage patch dolls first came out 20+ years ago, I purchased one and that year for Christmas, my Mom gave me a beautiful hat and sweater she crocheted for it.  I still have that doll and outfit and treasure it!
6398  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Angels crochet on: January 20, 2006 05:22:27 PM
Wow!  I've made many angels over the years but have never seen these patterns.  I especially like the one with the pony tails and pineapple skirt!
6399  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Quilt Made From T-Shirts on: January 19, 2006 05:39:32 PM
I have a t-shirt quilt my Mom made me about 20 years ago and it's my favorite.  She did it a little different than what I have read here.  She cut the sleeves off some and left them on others and left all the neck bindings on.  Then she cut out a backing piece of material the size she wanted the top to be, laid the t-shirts on it, overlapping where necessary, until the entire top was covered.  She didn't have to add any extra pieces since she let the t-shirts overlap.  Then she stitched each t-shirt to the backing material by outlining it.  She put a thin layer of batting under that and a backing material and tie quilted it.  Whatever color the t-shirt was, that's the color of yarn she tied it with.

I'm working on a pattern I found in the Crafting Traditions magazine (which, unfortunately, is no longer available) and I now have the quilt top done and am ready to quilt it.  The instructions tell exactly how to quilt so it looks like the picture but I can't find any stitching templates to match.  Has anyone ever made their own stitching templates and, if so, can you tell me how to go about it.  TIA
