  1. A great tip to make easy bobbins for crochet or knit at Moogly.com
  2. They all look so cute. Reminds me of how the octopus camouflages in the deep. Great gift topper that will sure to be appreciated. You go girl!
  3. What a sweet testament to vintage crochet. So cute!
  4. Another beauty- my, my! Thank you for sharing.
  5. Awe another pair of cuties!
  6. You do the pattern justice again. Very cute and sweet.
  7. So cute and a perfect gift.
  8. Awe- so cute and definitely SWEET! Nice job on this set.
  9. You're welcome. Hope it works as well for you as it did me.
  10. I have used bulky yarn before for Ami (Bernat Happy yarn). I used sc only, with a J hook (L hook was recommended). When ready to stuff, I put filling first in a piece of cheap knee-hi stocking (prevents stuffing from coming out between stitches), inserted it in the Ami, finished stuffing, then sewed the stocking part closed and finished the crochet part as directed. A 6" Ami bear turned out to be 9" which was perfect for what I needed.
  11. Very pretty. I've seen this done before but only in a solid color. I really like the variety of colors your aunt put together. She did such a beautiful job. Thank you for sharing.
  12. Hey J! That is very clever. You go girl.
  13. It looks wonderful! It's such a fun pattern.
  14. Great idea!
  15. I missed this one! LOL Yours are definitely not just plain. I love them all. They're so pretty. I too made headbands for my DD, GD and 3 Grt-GD's, but silly me, didn't get them finished in time for the colder weather. It's too warm already where they live, so, they'll be ready for next late Fall and will get mailed then. Thank you for sharing.
