Thank you to everyone for participating, please post your pics here Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hogwarts House Scarves (a few pics) on: December 03, 2010 08:52:47 AM
I wasn't sure which category to put these in, I hope this is the right spot as they are sewn from fleece.

I made these house scarves for the premier of Harry Potter; alas, they were not done in time .

Each scarf features the colors for the house (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin) as described in the book, not movie.  (Burgundy and gold, Blue and Bronze, Yellow and Black and Green and Silver, respectively).

Shown first is a group shot, followed by each scarf individually.  

3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / WWP Warm Wishes for Yule Card Swap (Sign ups CLOSED, SO 12/15) on: November 09, 2010 07:07:16 PM

NOTE: Since there will be sharing of a mass list of addresses involved, I'm going to limit it to people who have been involved in Witch-Wiccan-Pagan swaps only, or those who intend to join in next round.  So if you haven't swapped in a WWP swap before, or intend to be a part of the next one, I kindly ask that you wait until we decide to do a bigger card swap, this one is a mini, and although we don't like to leave anyone out--we intend to keep it a small number. Thanks, and I hope this doesn't offend as my intentions are not to do so. We love all of our fellow Craftsters.  

NOTE:  For this swap you will be sending a card to each participant. If you join this swap, you may be crafting a dozen cards with a small inclusion.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Reversible Cabled Scarf Pattern from 2008 calendar on: August 29, 2010 09:44:32 PM
I'm trying to find the pattern for the Reversible Cabled Scarf that was in the 2008 Crochet a Day Calendar.  I've googled, checked ravelry and short of buying the calendar on ebay or amazon, I'm at my wits end.  Does anyone still have this pattern?  I completed a few scarves using it and I'd like to use the pattern again this winter.  If you still have the pattern, can I buy it for a quarter, lol?  I really don't need the rest of the calendar, just this one pattern!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do you distribute stitches on DPNs? on: July 30, 2010 10:08:09 PM
Please forgive me if the answer is obvious, but I've looked in all my knitting books and the internet and can't find the answer.

I'm making a sock and the cast on is for 64 stitches to divide as follows: 20, 20, 24.  After the cast on, do I slip 40 stitches from needle A to B, then 20 stitches from needle B to C?

Or, do I slip 20 stitches from A to B, then 24 stitches from A to C?  I am having a heck of a time getting the stiches divided up so I can actually start knitting--I almost got a full round done when stitches fell off the last needle.  Sigh.

PS: I only understand a long-tail cast on so any of the fancier techniques are beyond me.  I just want to know exactly how you divide up the stitches, none of the books want to tell me!
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Kaffe Fassett Log Cabin Quilt (pic plump) on: August 01, 2009 02:11:13 PM

I made this for round 10 of the witch/wiccan/pagan swap.  My partner loved it, said it was very gypsy and her favorite fall/gemstone colors.

I bought the block kit on ebay, put it together and sewed on strips of broadcloth to make it crib size.  The backing is the same fabric.  It was a little tricky to sew together, the "fluff" kept slipping around.  It's lightly quilted to hold it together.  Shown also is my dog, Sadie, she always has to make sure my projects are soft enough.

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Disappearing 9 Patch Queen sized Wedding Quilt on: July 27, 2009 01:40:17 PM

I made this quilt for two friends who were married last summer and renewed their vows this summer.  The squares are a crazy assortment of cotton prints, all cut based on my 6" quilt square--which means they were bigger because of the seam allowances.  The fabrics were all picked based on the couple's interests, like music, sushi, Africa, travel, France, etc.

Here is a close up shot:

The backing is a plain black sheet from Wal-Mart; here's a shot so you can see how how my mom helped me roll the edging so the top shows on the back.  I'm sure there's a name for this, but I don't know what it is.

I stitched in the ditch all the way around the piece, then three lines down each side.  Well, I did my best to, because not all the blocks weren't all exactly the same, the lines did wobble a bit, but oh well. I really hope everyone likes it!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can you unshrink a sweater? on: December 08, 2008 09:03:25 AM
So I machine washed, air dried a store bought machine knit sweater and of course, it has shrunk.  Is there any way to unshrink it, or am I doomed to have ruined another $60 wool sweater? 

If this is the wrong board, please let me know, I though here would be a good place to start.
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A Couple of Harlequins--Cotumes for me and my horse! on: November 02, 2008 02:52:24 PM
For our Halloween party at the barn, I decided to make myself and my horse a costume, so we're Harlequins!  Untraditionally, of course, because I'm all about going against tradition.  My costume was made from Simplicity #2777.  The top is a Halloween cotton print, the bloomers are snuggle flannel, both fabrics from Joanns.

For Cat, my horse, I used the striped fabric to make a pillowcase, and stuffed one her saddle pads inside so it would be comfy for her.  She also got a "tie" from the same fabric.

I made very short polo wraps out of the flannel print, but they do have velcro so they stay on.  We didn't win the costume contest and we probably won't win this one, but I bet no one else posting here made an outfit for their horse!!

10  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Sealing rub ons on glass on: October 02, 2008 01:27:19 PM
I think this is the right category for this question.  I have some rub ons I want to put on glass (empty bottles, etc) and I want to make sure they stay on.  Anyone try this?  I was thinking either mod podge as a sealer, or spray on sealer.  I'd be bummed if the designs flaked off in transport (this is for a swap).
