11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Small Motifs On Cheap-y Towels on: May 14, 2008 10:25:43 AM
Hi everyone,

I made the mistake of buying these cheaper flour sack towels. I still will use them and of coarse wanted to embellish them a bit.  Smiley All free motifs off the internet. I used a wash away quilting pen which works great. Thanks for looking.

12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Having a Patern Enlarged at an Imaging Center on: March 20, 2008 05:49:42 PM
I just found a deer pattern at Hooplove I would really like to do. (Link is in the Shared Patterns thread)

I thought it may need to be printed larger than a regular sheet of paper. Has anyone ever had something enlarged and run into copyright problems. I know these imaging centers can be very particular about these things.

Thank you!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit Piece of Cake on: March 12, 2008 03:00:10 PM
Some day I'd like to make an entire layer cake for my cake stand. Either knit or crochet.

Until then, this was easy and fun to do.



I found I only needed to make 3 curls on the frosting decoration.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Signing up with Lion Brand or Freepatterns.com Question. on: March 06, 2008 03:26:15 PM
I notice both these sights require a street or mailing address.

For those who have signed up with one or both of these sights, do they start sending you junk mail to your mail box? I have worked to get all my junk mail stopped and would not want to register with either of these sights if they start sending a bunch of junk.

I have noticed cute patterns but it's not worth it if they start sending mail and possibly share your address.
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Kitty Tote and More on: February 27, 2008 02:54:03 PM
Hi everyone, I made this Kitty tote and I'm really pleased with how it came out. I used a heavier tan denim weight fabric for the lining. No interfacing. I was inspired by another Craftster who posted a tote last summer with similar fabric and had a panel with a child's name embroidered. I am unable to find that post to give credit for the inspiration. These are all Aunt Martha's iron on transfers

I used the same design for this dish towel for a dear friend. She has already received it. It's hard to tell but the kitties are done in black and gray.

And this silly little Goose pot holder. I didn't really pad it enough to use. It's hanging on the cabinet in the dinning area. Thanks for looking!  Smiley

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Two Simple Knit Scarves on: January 09, 2008 11:51:46 AM
I like this scarf more now than when I finished it a couple of months ago. I knit cords forever it seemed. It's quite bulky and warm.

I like to mix the fuzzy yarns with worsted weight. The fuzzy yarn is called "Baby Monkey" and it's so soft. It is 100% synthetic. It's also easy to carry the worsted weight yarn up the side because it gets lost in the fuzzy yarn so there are less ends to weave in.

Thanks for looking.
17  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Fleece Kitty Blanket on: January 08, 2008 02:52:01 PM
My kitty Chloe will be 15 next month so I made her this blanket.

This was the first time I traced a pattern to embroider. (pattern from Sweet Bee's site) I used a blue wash away pen from a quilt store and it worked great. Thanks for looking.
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Normal Pierced Ear Gauge Wire Size? on: January 03, 2008 12:13:48 PM
Hi, I have a question for the jewelry makers here. Specifically earrings.

What gauge is the normal ear wire?

I have been looking at some earrings on Etsy but it seems like some of the ear wires are of a large gauge. I have small pierced holes and have never stretched my piercing out by wearing heavy or large earrings. And I don't want to!

For store bought earrings, what is the normal gauge. 20? 22?

Thank you for any help!
19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / What kind of lace work is this? 2 pictures on: December 04, 2007 09:58:50 AM
I have been wondering about these. I have 3  lace pieces I found about 3 years ago and I think they were a Salvation Army steal. I paid $10.00 for the larger one and $5.00 each for two smaller ones.

The large one is 40 inches round. The two smaller ones are about 32 and 26 inches round.

Does anyone know what kind of lace this is and maybe when this type lace was made? I have no idea. They are in excellent shape. The two pictures are of the larger piece. They are all 3 similar but in different patterns.

I don't go to thrift shops much anymore. I have enough stuff and one just doesn't find the good things anymore. Thanks for any help!  Smiley

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet In The round Question on: November 14, 2007 03:49:52 PM

I'm new to crocheting in the round.

Today I made the 'melon ball kitty" and it came out. Yay!

Here is my question:

I used a stitch marker to mark my first stitch. It seemed though that I had completed all my SC before I got to the stitch marker. Example: if it said I would end with a total of 12 SC, I had 12 SC before I got to the stitch marker.

I marked with the stitch marker my first SC in the round as I started the new round. Is that correct?

I hope this makes sense and thank you for any help in advance!
