  1. Wellllll I could sit and crochet for hours BUTTT I don't because I have back issues so if I don't make myself get up every 45 min I will pay dearly for it and then won't be able to crochet for a few days, which I do not like when that happens and of course no one in the house or near me likes that to happen either, hehehehehe
  2. Yes you can, please see http://www.beadwrangler.com/samplers/sampler-current.htm. For me it is very very addicting.
  3. WOW I like that dog sweater very nice, I found this http://www.doggystyledesigns.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=Size_Charts_all and it looks like just a general size chart.
  4. I am at the end of the 2nd book, New Moon and I'm going to see the movie tonight, I'm so excited and of course my lips are sealed I certainly don't want to ruin it for anyone. Now I am 49 years old and I really like the books, so maybe my mind is that of a teenager or I am just immature Also I do agree that really these books are not for a 12 year old, in my little immature mind, if I had a daughter I would not want to encourage romance just yet, again just my opinion.
  5. WOW, I love your house that is very beautiful and I like the crochet also, you are one lucky lady.
  6. I have been to these two, http://www.woolywonders.com and http://www.gailknits.com now I think there is another one but I have not been there. Wooly Wonders is a small shop and they do have weaving things, but Gail Knits is all about yarn, well it was last time I was there. Both places are worth a stop.
  7. It works up really fast, for me the hardest part is the stringing.
  8. You can also go to Home Depot or Lowes and they sell a type of foam board in large sheets, they are not that expensive, and use rust free pins and pin it out on the board. these are re usable. Now this may seem crazy but if you know someone with a trampoline they make great blocking boards, don't use pins and just keep the kids off until dry
  9. http://www.chiqmag.com/ I have been anxiously awaiting as it does look promising but I see it was suppose to publish on June 15 so has anyone heard if maybe a problem arose or anything at all ?? Thanks in advance for any information.
  10. I have the same problem with Caron yarn in general. It pills quickly and doesn't wear well. I am thinking maybe I am just picking the bad lot because I talk to others who swear by Caron yarn and tell me it never pills ???
  11. WOWWIE ZOWWIE, well it's a good thing I can make my own because I certainly do not have that kind of money for a purse.
  12. Whoo HOO there is a really nice tutorial in the current issue of Step by Step Beads for Turkish loop bead crochet and it is worth taking a look at. The tutorial is much clearer than mine (I tried but this one is really good). Step By Step beads is http://www.stepbystepbeads.com/sbsbeads/ here so you can see the cover because it does not say it on the outside of it. Enjoy Eva
  13. Thanks Crochet Hooked And Scenna it's funny how you mentioned Firemountain as I just ordered a load....errr I mean a few things from them. They recently have available alot of goddess and other very nice charms so I of course could not let them get away, hahahahaha.
  14. WOW, I can't wait!!!! I have read several others that I really enjoyed (Monica Ferris) so now I have something to look forward to reading wise. I read alot more in the summer because we do have a pool and I don't allow anyone in unless I am outside so usually I get a book and my son and friends get in the pool.
  15. YAA HOO, Thanks MaryPat. I guess I will keep my husband around then, he found cheap wire (just kidding) I need to take some pictures, I allready made 3 necklaces with the 24 gauge.
