  1. your experience was way diffferent than mine was. Seems like they have changed the show a bit. I would do it again though. I loved it. marlo www.marloscrochetcorner.com
  2. thanks everyone, it was so much fun to tape. All of the staff at uncommon threads are super fun and nice. The host is beautiful and very kind. I had a hard time watching myself, I didnt recognize my voice at all. It was very surreal. My two items were the jute rope basket and the plastic bag crochet. marlo http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com http://thatgirlcrochet.blogspot.com
  3. i am quite nervous about seeing myself on TV on Monday. I have two more shows that will air later on, one with chelle (luv2crochet) and cecily and one other show with cecily and julie (skamamawa) . they were a lot of fun to tape, but I think they will be more difficult to watch. marlo www.marloscrochetcorner.com http://thatgirlcrochet.blogspot.com/
  4. I didnt mean to leave any one out Tiff. Sorry if it seemed that way. I dont know everyones screen name so that is why I said Julie's purse and Cecily's ring and didnt include the screen names. I cant even remember what item I demoed for the show that you and I were in Tiff. Sad huh! I think it was the jute baskets and the plastic bag crochet. marlo www.marloscrochetcorner.com http://thatgirlcrochet.blogspot.com/
  5. Just went to the Uncommon Threads wed page and found a link!!! Click here http://www.uncommonthreads.tv/ and read all about the beautiful host and see a picture of one of my designs. The third picture from the right shows my Flower Power Necklace http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/Flower%20Power%20Set.html click on the link to get the pattern. Also pictured with my design is Julie's cute Flower Purse and Cecily's ring. I have three shows that will be on the DIY network and will let you all know when the air dates are. I am getting nervous and excited, my shows will be on TV soon!!!!! marlo www.marloscrochetcorner.com http://thatgirlcrochet.blogspot.com/
  6. I have a couple of patterns to share with all of you. two of them are ruffle scarves and one is a poncho. They are on my blog. Here is the direct link. http://thatgirlcrochet.blogspot.com/ patterns in my 1-4-06 post. marlo http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com http://thatgirlcrochet.blogspot.com/
  7. please send me email messages about the errors to my em ail address marlo@marloscrochetcorner.com I prefer to not air out my business on the crochetville board. I am truely sorry for you not receiving the hook but all items have been shipped out. I sent you an email and will resend your hook or will happily give you a refund. During The last few months my husband has been hospitalized 4 times and my business suffered because of my concern for his life. marlo
  8. thanks for posting to the board. I have had issues with a full mailbox and my mail has been bouncing. I sent your patterns to you via email just a few minutes ago. Yes I am still open for business!!! Thanks for asking. Things have turned around completely for me since my husband got sick. But I am still alive and kickin'!!!! I am taking a blog break, but not a work break. I have many ideas in the works but have since had to start working so I have put off alot of my crochet and other hobbies to work and help my family survive. Merry Christmas to everyone!! and look for me to resurface in the new year. You cant get rid off me yet!!!!!!!! Marlo www.marloscrochetcorner.com
  9. must make the sweater, it is gorgeous. can you give my some alternate yarn choices? and how big is large xlarge? 14/16? I will shop for the yarn tomorrow. you did an amazing job. If that is you in the photo, your quite beautiful! marlo http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/ http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/
  10. I have some pictures of my felted bags on this page. Beware this is very addicting and all you will think about is felting! http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/patterns%20for%20sale.html marlo marlo's crochet corner http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com
  11. The only blend that I know of that can be felted it Lion Brand Landscapes. It felts beautifully. I really love this wool. A less expensive yarn is Lion Brand Fisherman Wool. You can dye this with kool-aid. I have pictures and patterns on this page. http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/patterns%20for%20sale.html marlo marlo's crochet corner http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com that girl blog http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/blog/index.php?cat=1
  12. would love to test it for you!! just drop me a note if you want me to give it a go. marlo http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com
  13. I love freeform crochet and knit and have recently finished a shawl. When I made the pieces for it I knew what I wanted it to be. But several of my other peices have evolved over time. I have a pic of my shawl in my blog 4-6-05 post http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/blog/index.php?cat=1I also have pics of my other freeform items on my website here http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/freeform.html just have fun with it at first, your piece will tell you what it wants to be. marlo http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com
  14. i am a jute junkie and love to work with it. The basket is way cute. Love the wine bottle cozy also. I love to work with "yarn" that isnt yarn. marlo http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/blog/index.php?cat=1
  15. when designing and selling patterns I really like to have a pattern that is ALL my own. If it is a part of semeone elses then I will always feel like it isnt all my idea. When I design and publish and sell a pattern I want a clear mind!!! For instance if you took a bag pattern and made it the same but changed the handles or a pocket that is just embelishing in my opinion. The CORE idea was still the same. hope I havent stepped on toes or been to blunt but you asked!!! :blush !!! marlo http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com
