  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.
  16. Now that is a good idea. Believe or not my 12 year old is the tie dye king, Honestly I have no idea how to do it and 2 years ago he did tie dye and entered it into the fair and won first place, little stinker, HA. I think I may do a hat and hand it over to him, thanks for the idea.
  17. For my first project I just picked up the 24g craft wire from Walmart but since we do not have anywhere else to buy it, I will have to go online. My husband found this http://www.parawire.com/ and I was wondering if anyone uses this wire and if this will work for Bead wire crochet ? Thanks
  18. WOW, I did take a look at your work and well I have alot of practicing to do , hahahahaha are you a teacher also ? I wish we had a Michaels or Joanns here. I still need to take a picture.
  19. Big Congrats Ms. Rachel, I can't tell you how many times your site has helped me out tremendously, just about 2 weeks ago I had a request from my beautiful Grand Daughter for a "purpulll" sweater (she is 2 1/2) since she lives 8 hours away, I used your site to get a pattern and YEAH, she loves her "Purpull" sweater.
  20. I just sold my collection for cheap because they went to a very deserving home. I just didn't really use them so I felt like I should at least let someone who is going to use them buy them.
  21. I did it, it only took me about 1/2 hour and I used this and I would have to order the 28 gauge wire so I used 24 gauge that was available at Walmart. I didn't take a picture yet but I will, I just go so excited that I did it that I had to share, HA. I was really inspired by http://www.indiepublic.com/profile/wirecrochet do now I want to do some more. If you haven't tried it yet, please do it is a little weird to start but once you get going it goes fairly fast. Will hopefully get a picture of my attempt soon.
  22. Please go back to your library and ask if they can "borrow" it. I live in a small town and they always "borrow" from other states. If you have already decided to buy, try http://www.bookfinder.com
  23. Please accept my deepest sympathy. It's ok to cry, I cried for almost 6 months when my Dad died. I know it's difficult but try not to be so hard on yourself. Feel free to email me if you want to. Right now just make sure to drink plenty of water, getting dehydrated which I did do, is not fun. If you have a bookstore near you, try to go in and browse thru the books on grief and I only suggest that because I thought for sure I was a weirdo loosing my mind (ok fine I am a weirdo)!!!! with all the things I was doing. Here is a hug for you.
  24. Thank you so much If anyone is thinking about using Drupal please feel free to ask me and I don't know alot about it but I learned enough to put the site up and how to keep it maintained Eva
