451  Re: 2009 12" Squares- December! in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: December 01, 2009 02:46:14 PM
Here's the December square! It's called Guardian Angel and there are 3 variations, so head to the first post for the links. The only difference between them is the use of front-post double crochets in the rounds surrounding the angel. I think mine started out as version 2, but I may have changed it... I don't recall any pattern corrections, but I did add a couple of notes in the first post. As always, feel free to ignore them  Wink

I'm not crazy about my color scheme on this one, but my orange-loving friends were teasing me because I didn't have enough blocks that featured orange...  Cheesy

Note: I just checked the links (found via the Internet Wayback Machine) and the only one (at the moment) with a working picture of the block is version 1.

I still love my Yudu! I am impressed with the level of detail I can get with it. I just made a pillow for a swap, and printed the image on 2 t-shirts as well.

I looked into getting a gocco, but couldn't find locally available supplies. I'm thinking I may try printing some holiday cards using my Yudu to see how well that works.

Wow! Such great stuff in this gallery!

I love that the Doomsday book was turned into a "secret" book- great use for a book you'll never read again Wink I also really like the wineglasses and the flying book pendant.

That bleached t-shirt is so cool! And, I love the painted panels, too!

I received a very well stalked (and well stocked!) package. First, some coffee (decaf, even!), cocoa and shortbread cookies (my absolute favorite cookie) for sipping an nibbling whilst reading.

Then, a painted teapot that reads, "Find a book, Pour a cup of tea, Relax and Read" which is totally on the agenda for Veterans' Day.

Next, more stalking is evident in the bookmark made with a frog charm and Swarovski crystals. Perfect! And, a fabulous book-shaped box with a starfish on the front...

And on the back... An octopus and a quote from a poem in one of the stories in our book, "I sit at the bottom of sleep, As on the floor of the sea, And fanciful citizens of the deep, Are graciously greeting me." Awesome connection to the book, especially since it was such a tough book to find craft ideas for!

Thanks so much, freestyle! I love it all!

Ya know, if you'd just stop assigning so many papers and giving so many tests, you'd have a lot more time to crochet... just sayin'...  Grin

If only I could find enough hands-on/manipulatives/activity based stuff to teach them so they'd actually learn it... I'd love to be able to sneak some crochet into math, but our "you must have this much taught by the end of the term so we can test them to see how well you taught it" regimen is so strict, I don't think I can... *sigh*

But... on to photos of stuff!!

First, fabulous GDs from Raesmom in colors I needed! Green, tan, yellow (2 shades), red, orange and white! Thanks a bunch, Raesmom! Already sorted and tallied Wink

And, a super treat from myklia, who made a trip to Hobby Lobby for some "Superhero" yarn (pictured on the right in the photo). She also found a colorway called "Boo! Ombre" (on the left). And now, I know the meaning of her wood-burning reference from the other day. A wooden spoon with a cute little frog burned into it! Thanks so much, myklia!

Heeeeeeeeere's November!

It's the Hometown Square and it was pretty easy, I think. There were some minor pattern corrections, but I made the square back in August (I thought I might need it for the September square), and I can't find my notes. Once I do, I'll add any corrections to the first post, like always Wink Found them! And, I think I even understand what I wrote over 2 months ago Grin

Have fun! Only one more block to go!

I also love the color wheel picture! A great color selection, too!

I got a GD Bonus in the mail today from fanasticmio! I needed some Canadian stamps for a project, and she said she'd be able to send me some. Not only did she send way cooler stamps than I was expecting, she also sent me a dozen GDs in some of the colors I need the most.

Thanks a bunch, fantasticmio!

Here are my lovelies from EssHaych, too! She sent me some much needed yellows and pinks, and some great shades of greens, blues and purple. Plus, I also got a lip balm cozy (complete with matching lip balm) and a fuzzy guy (who will now be the keeper of the GDs).

Thanks a ton! I'm heading off to sort them into their respective color piles now Wink

Holy cow! I am continually amazed by what is being sent to everyone! Every single time I check the gallery, I get new ideas for future rounds...

Yesterday, I came home to 2 fantastic envelopes from my partners- no damage, no extra postage needed!

First, from Prettty In Paisley:

A photo of Betty Davis, a couple of feathers, a stamped owl, a glittery leaf, some foam cut-outs, a friendship bracelet, a fortune from a fortune cookie, some cool papers and borders and (my favorite) an old photo (dated May '60) of ducks/geese on a lake.  Thanks so much! I am thinking of how to use them all in an altered journal I have yet to start...

And then, from habitat-lady:

Some handmade paper (some even embossed with images, including frogs and lizards), a pond-ful of frogs painstakingly cut from magazine pages, 2 science experiment cards, a poem about swapping (so clever), a vintage label sticker, some squares of mulberry paper (I think), some more bits of ephemera and an amazing little painting (close-up shot below)! Thank you so much, habitat-lady! Once again, the mind is reeling with ideas for my journal...
