    hummmm... most of my life in some form
  1. :yay Hey, Looking for some ladies close by to share tea and crochet. Hope there are some in my area. Jana:think
  2. The orange/pink/red one is made from Softee chunky yarn. I just made a cute hat with the same yarn. It is SOOO soft!!
  3. How about using saved up yarn scraps or fabric scraps for stuffing. Cut really small, about 1/4 inch, they stuff really well and give a lightweight loft. Hope that helps.
  4. You can join chinelle by stripping the fluff off with dull scizzors and then tying the thread ends that are left together. Cut off most of the remaining thread and rub over the seam with your fingers. You will never see the join. Hope this helps.
  5. Okay, I sometimes tie knots. In any composit yarn you can pull off the fluff and tie the threads together and you have a seamless join. Sometimes I will tie knots for the effect in the pattern. Otherwise I will do a carry along join (made up the termonology myself, since I don't know what it is really called;) ). I hold the old and new yarns togther and crochet the next few with a double yarn. Just thought I would share:) .
  6. Thank you for your service and the service of your wife. From one military family to another, we salute you!!
  7. Hello! Wow it was nice to find such a large group. Cold months are coming and it is time to snuggle up under a nice crochet project. I have been crocheting for as long as I can remember. My grandma taught me. I don't know how she had the patience, because my 5 year old daughter is wanting to learn, and it is very difficult not to get frustrated . I am looking forward to hearing some new ideas and meeting new friends.
  8. I love wearables and purses. Little handbags are great for those left- overs from other projects.
