  1. Wow! time flies! I first responded to this thread over a year ago. I soak the items to be stiffened in the 1:1 solution of Epsom Salt and water. Lay them out (or pin to block depending on the shape needed). This works very well for me. It produces a VERY stiff fabric.
  2. I recently discovered using Epsom Salts and water - a 1:1 mix produces a very stiff fabric with no discoloration.
  3. Whoa! That is one BIG RR. Great job sticking with it.
  4. It was worth the wait, in my opinion. Great job!
  5. Debbie - great job - of course, you KNOW blue is my favorite color!
  6. Debbie, Very nice! Blue is my favorite color.
  7. Fantastic! One of the best scrapghans I've seen.
  8. Here's one: http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?CATID=cat2873&PRODID=prd45956
  9. I used an S hook (19 mm) for the 4 strands. Link to original post: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1557366&postcount=3257
  10. Judy - it's beautiful. Yea, that's the way I do it too - whatever works. I've seen that stitch combination referred to as the sedge stitch. I really like it. I've also used a modified version which makes it easier to end the corners/valleys in the right spot: sc, dc in same st, sk 1, repeat.
  11. Shell, I really like the creativity you've shown with these new blocks. I'd love to see one of them put into a project.
  12. Cheryl - you did a beautiful job. I really like those colors, too.
  13. Thanks! And the same to you and everyone else here... I've been lurking in here for awhile.
