1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Ask Debbie Stoller... and maybe win her new book! Call for ?s (Ends 5pm EST Wed) on: November 24, 2010 06:54:27 AM
Hi Debbie! I'm joining the chorus requesting (begging for?  Cheesy) Happy Hooker 2. My copy of Happy Hooker fell apart long ago from the many hours of love.

My question is have you ever considered putting together a book of just accessories (bags, hats, home items), both knitted and crocheted? I would be all over that in a heartbeat. I have a new baby and have time only for smaller projects, and besides, the accessories are always my favorite parts of your books. Plus, I don't have the money to invest in nice yarn for a large project but can usually swing a ball or two of nice yarn for a small project.  Smiley Thanks, and thanks so much for Happy Hooker! It got me started on my passion for crochet.

Thanks for the nice comments, guys! I hope you'll find the link useful.  Smiley
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Tulle tree on: January 02, 2010 10:46:25 AM
Around Christmastime, I admired a green tulle tree that my MIL had made. She had helped her mom make and sell them when she was a little girl in the 50s, so she had a lot of affection for tulle trees. I wanted a wintry one, so she very kindly got the supplies for me and we spent the afternoon yesterday making a white tulle tree while New Year's dinner cooked. It was a really nice day.  Smiley

The instructions she used can be found at http://www.wwvisions.com/craftbb/ornament/9144.html, and you can use any color of tulle that you want. Because mine is wintry rather than Christmassy, I can leave it out for a couple of months. Enjoy!  Smiley

Thanks for the nice comments, guys! I agree, you can find anything in Workbasket magazine. I found a tutorial for making a cufflink holder out of an old sardine can. I was just kind of like "...huh."  Cheesy
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / 50s bird embroidery on: December 13, 2009 04:16:00 PM
Hi! I recently inherited about 75 issues of Workbasket magazine from the 50s and 60s. Some of them still had iron-on embroidery transfers in them that still transferred! I loved this bird, and have been wanting to make a bag to go with my new blue winter coat, so I made a bird bag using the transfer. It was so, so nice having the design transfer right onto the fabric instead of having to trace it from a printout. I had the brown fabric on hand from making a pillow, and the lining and yoyo are actually a striped yellow napkin.

Close-up of the embroidery. I promise my seams are straight; the way the bag hangs makes them look less straight.  Smiley

And with my coat:

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

I love these! Thank you for sharing. I have a big stash of felt and trims, and now I know what to do with it.  Smiley
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: The Christmas Ornament Swap Gallery (Sendouts Oct. 23rd) on: October 30, 2009 06:49:51 PM
Here are the wonderful ornaments I received from psoupdesigns two whole weeks ago. (I'm woefully late with photos. I apologize, psoup!)

An adorable vintagey santa postcard ornament:

A beautiful ornament that looks like ribbon candy (there are balls between each of the ribbons; it was hard to photograph to make it look as pretty as it is):

And my favorite, the cutest little house with details that I'm sure took a lot of time. (Look at the little wreath and the tree! I squealed when I opened it.)

Thank you so much, psoup! And thank you for posting photos of what I sent you! I'm so glad you like them, and I'm so glad you can tell that the one is a cupcake.  Cheesy

I received an awesome package from psoupdesigns at the end of last week! Photos will hopefully be up tonight.
I just finished my ornaments last night, and they should be off in the mail this evening!  Smiley

Ooh, I'm excited!  Grin

I'm working on my second one right now, and I have an idea for the third one. I hope it works!
