My copy of Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs, by Edie Eckman, just landed on the porch, and it's fabulous! It makes a wonderful complement to my Melody Griffiths book (201 Crochet Motifs, Blocks, Projects and Ideas). Now, I want to sit and crochet instead of doing laundry and dishes...

I'm slammed with stuff this week... I totally forgot Math Night was on Thursday! And, I'm tutoring, so I get home late, and once I have my "down time," it's almost too late to start working on anything. Grrr...

And, just as a reminder, please make sure to PM me when you send and receive!

Wow, more wonderful squares!

Eliea, I think that, somehow, random colors totally work with crochet! Your squares look great, and if you hadn't said that one was bigger on one side, I wouldn't have noticed!

Mienna, your square came out lovely (no surprise, there Wink ). I also like the colors!

Beccahacom, your lapghan came out fantastic! I have no idea what colors you should use for the next one... maybe you could choose a variegated that you like, and pick colors to match?

Slingmomma, yay! I knew you could catch up... and 2 of them even Smiley

I'm almost done with the February square, but I have a feeling I'll be finishing the last bits Saturday night... so another just after midnight posting is highly possible Wink Unless we have a snow day on Wednesday... and with a foot of snow predicted, it's possible...

Slingmomma, it's definitely not too late! And, I think you'll find that the January square isn't too difficult, so you should be caught up in no time Wink

The Donna, your squares came out great (as did your Labor of Love afghan!)!

I'm so bummed! I went to a workshop today and was hoping to come out of it with my item. I didn't make one item because I didn't like it, one item went horribly wrong, the other wasn't going to be part of the package, so it leaves me with only one item... which isn't enough. So, I have to figure out something else to add, if I can... and I have a crazy busy week ahead of me...

Grrr...

And, free is good...

I added some links to my post above... And, I'm finding that if I change my search terms, I get better/more results... which is obvious, but I didn't try it earlier Tongue
6748  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Crochet Motif Swap on: January 25, 2009 10:39:14 AM
Someone mentioned earlier about the table runner and had pictures included.

Bedspread would be another one.

I added them to the list! Now, I'll look back to find the links...

Okay, so I procrastinated... the pattern is now posted! If you make one, please post a pic (or a link to a pic) here of your version.

I never would have thought of curtains... maybe we should start a list of what can be made with random motifs?

1. Afghan (Link)
2. Scarf (Link to free pattern, Link to image, Link to one with motif patterns)
3. Curtains
4. Tote bag
5. Shawl
6. Table runner (Link to purchase pattern)
7. Bedspread

And, when I start the swap, I can post a list, with links if I can find them...

And, a search on "crochet motif" at the Lion Brand site, gave a few more free patterns, including some free motifs. You do need to register to use the site, but it's free (and worth it!). In fact, by looking at the picture for table runner pattern, and using some of the free motifs, you could probably make it without buying the pattern Wink
