  1. Answering the Challenge- from Premier yarns , I know i'll make this baby afghan, it uses their Big Ball, a really nice quality yarn, comes in a pound skein .. makes a nice $10 baby gift... Probably will put in a big yarn order with them right after the New Year. Cabled slipper socks.... will make soon, it's cold feet season! I'll use some yarn i have here in the stash, probably Premiers Ever Soft ... I love this yarn, nice and soft, but thick and the price is right, too... best inexpensive yarn there is, I think. I might give this chunky basket a go, making a couple or 5 in diffe
  2. I love shopping at Aldi's. They recently opened two stores in nearby towns, so it's either a 7 or 9 mile ride. I should be on their payroll, because I tell everyone about how much they can save there and how quick and easy it is to run thru their store... There's no comparison shopping, you buy what they have, and they only have one of each product. I've never had any problem with their brand either, except I think their cream of mushroom soup is lousy. Milk is 1.50 cheaper, per gallon, than the corner dairy store, crackers and any type of chips are all inexpensive, so are their cereals. I

    are you looking for American Girl type patterns? Try the search at the top of the page, this will bring up a lot of threads that will start you in the right direction.. There are some AG patterns in the Free Pattern directory, you can get the link in the toolbar above under Patterns. If you are searching google, try "AG crochet patterns" good luck!
  5. How cute! Nice to see a little boy doll, too! Hope to see him in his reindeer outfit!
  6. You are so talented, wow, only crocheting for 3 years! So happy to see you posted a video and are doing a book on your lovely work!
  7. I keep a birthday cake candle in my little box of supplies, just a few gentle rubs and then rub it in with the warmth of my fingertips, Use a tissue to remove an extra if you think you have used to much. I've always liquid floor wax, self shine, on my brand new wood or bamboo knitting needle sets I make from shish kabob skewers or dowels - use them for socks and mittens - it seals them nicely and I can't get a set of DP needles any cheaper than that... easy to replace if one breaks, too, but I always make extra... and in every size i can find skewers and thin dowels in.

  8. lovely!! I Love the leaves and flowers, just added it to my wishlist!
  9. That's a beauty! How could anyone not notice, it's an eyecatcher! Years ago I wanted to make one for our Jeep, never got to it...
  10. I always use a white glue/water solution. I keep a plastic container handy and just drop them in as I make them and them spread them out in small batches to dry. I also sprinkle them with that snowy glitter when they are still wet, they come out nice. I used the sugar solution years ago, something chewed on them while they were stored away, so give a warning to your giftees not to pack them in the attic. This page has a lot of info on stiffening them, I'm sure you can get some help there.
  11. Great Santa hat, he'll be a darling helper!
  12. So pretty! i'm sure she treasures it, too.
  13. How cute, nice that you get them a book, too. Reading along with their new monkey toys will be such fun for them!
