1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sunny Day! on: April 13, 2011 07:08:26 PM
Czech glass beads in sunny colors on a crocheted golden nylon thread.  Three strands, and no metal findings.  The closure is a crochet loop and bobble.  Thanks for looking!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Olives and vines on: April 13, 2011 07:04:49 PM
OK, I know that olives don't grow on vines, but here they do.  (In my world, anything is possible!)  This necklace is three strands of crocheted olive nylon thread with Czech glass beads in various shades of olive and gold and green.  Very summery!  I think I'm in love with Hobby Lobby, which is where I got the thread and the beads.

This is a two strand crocheted necklace in black nylon, with beads of indigo and cobalt colors.  I am really pleased with how it came out.  Can't say it enough-those pre-packaged Czech glass beads are perfect for projects like this.  The beads come already matched, so they look great together!

Thanks for looking!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Think Pink! Girl power :-) on: April 13, 2011 06:55:09 PM
Three strands of crocheted chocolate brown nylon with iridescent pink beads.  This was a really easy project to do.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  BTW- those mixed bags of pre-matched Czech glass beads that you see at the big craft stores-they are AWESOME for making these kinds of jewelry items.

Thanks for looking!

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Help with crochet beaded necklace? on: April 03, 2011 07:36:50 AM
I'm trying to make some simple crochet beaded necklaces- just your standard chain of crochet with small beads worked into the chain.  I've made a few with a kind of nylon thread that I have never used before- it's the Omega Hilo Nylon thread from Hobby Lobby.  It seems to have a strong "twist" to it, which makes my necklaces twist after completion.  It's a darn shame, since I love love love the feel of this thread-so soft and "drapey."  How can I keep my necklaces from getting all twisted up?  I've tried hanging them up overnight, tried untwisting them manually, tried being extremely careful when making them so as not to add any extra twists, all to no avail.  Any tips?  Thanks!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Girl-ing up a mans shirt? on: March 28, 2011 04:06:18 PM
I have a man's shirt-buttons down the front...I'm wanting to "girl" it up a bit. I don't want to totally chop it up, as it used to be my Dad's, and he is now gone. Maybe just a few adjustments- Any suggestions?  I am very inexperienced at sewing.  Any help or instructional links are appreciated.  Thanks !

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Starrrrrs on: March 12, 2011 07:08:41 AM
I love stars. Looking around my living room right now, I can count about fifteen of them hanging on my walls in one form or another. Oddly enough, I have never attempted to crochet one, until now.  (Weird, I know.)

I got the pattern from someone on Ravelry.  (Oh how I LOVE that website!)

And here's the yarn I used- Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn Sparkle.  It is soooo soft, and affordable!

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Stuckness!!! on: February 28, 2011 06:27:21 PM
So how do y'all get past the occasional "creative block?"  It's that inability to make anything, regardless of how many beautiful supplies you have laid out before you.  Surely lots of craftster folks have tips on how to get out of the creative black hole! 

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Big Ol' Granny on: January 25, 2011 07:13:51 PM
This is the Granny Square That Ate Richmond.  I started and just couldn't stop. The more colors the better.  It started out as a project to use up some left over scraps, and I loved it so much, I had to go out and buy more "scraps" to make it bigger.  Most of these yarns are Red Heart Super Saver and Caron One Pound and Perfect Match.  Assistant Inspector Zoey is checking my work in the first image.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / More Short Attention Span Crochet on: January 23, 2011 12:51:53 PM
Finished this one yesterday.  It will be an embellishment on a hat.  I'm thinking of putting a bar pin on the back, so it can be used on the hat or alone as a brooch.
