    about 27 years or so, I learned when I was 8
  1. My DH recently got an iPad. He wanted a case or carrier for it, but could not accept the prices that they charge for those things. We happened to be in Jo-Annes looking at fabric and he fell in love with a Star Wars vintage comic cover fabric and he asked if I could make a simple slide case for him. Well, we sat down, discussed options, and ended up with the item below. It has six pockets on the left to hold screen wipes, connection cables, headphones and other accessories as well as one large padded pocket on the right to hold the iPad itself. It is closed with a 30" zipper. He has been very happy with it! He took it into work with him and came home with 3 orders!
  2. Thanks for the nice comments! Here are some instructions. http://fiberfantasies.wordpress.com/2007/07/23/make-a-quilt-in-a-pillow/

    I received this pillow square during last years Holiday Gift exchange. I had time finally to sit down and make something with it for my little girls Raggedy Anne themed nursery. I think it turned out great and I wish I would have made it sooner. I just love how it turned out. :c9
  4. I was gifted this pattern by a very generous FGM Not only did my daughter wear it for her Christening, but the outfit won Judges Choice: Best Garment at the State Fair Best of luck to all of you with your own Fair entries!
  5. I made this for my nephew's big day. I used a size 6 hook and size 10 thread. The pattern is called Handsome Christening Set.
  6. darling!!! Love it and your baby looks so cute wearing it. It's everything a little girl dress should be!
  7. Thanks for all the comments! I would say it was an intermediate pattern. I didn't have much trouble with it. I did not like how the bonnet was done so I ripped it out and did my own thing with it. I also used a seperate pattern for the booties. Overall the pattern was well written and I didn't have any problems with it. I got several complements on it from our congegation and family as well. Thanks again dear fairy godmother.
  8. This pattern was gifted to me by a very generous Fairy God Mother and I got it done just in time for babies big day! The pattern is called Rose Christening Set and can be found at: http://delsiescrochet.com/
  9. Love her!!!! She is sitting on my sofa with me right now... Eventually she will make it to the nursery.
  10. A lady I worked with was having a baby and wanted a christening outfit. I spent 2 months working with size 20 thread to make it. It turned out great. When I gave it to her I asked for a picture of her baby in it. She was so excited. I never got a picture. Years later I found out that she did not even use it. I do not know what happened to the dress. If she didn't use it I know lots of people who would have. I haven't seen or spoken to her since.
  11. I don't see the problem here. When I make afghans for myself I expect my dog to use them. Yes, my dogs do lay in them, dig in them and enjoy them as much as I do. I expect the people that are given them to do the same thing. If it bothers you that much I would explain how the digging could ruin the stitching. They may not have realized that. I wouldn't worry about it too much. It is being used and admired.
  12. This is the first fair I entered this year. I think I did pretty good. 3 purples and one reserve champion. The next fair entry date is tomorrow, where I am entering some crocheted items, baked goods, and photographs. Wish me luck! I also want to send out good luck to all those other fair goers! Hope you bring home lots of purple/blue ribbons!!!
  13. I enter things in fairs all the time. It is hard for the fair workers to keep an eye on everything all the time so unfortunately stuff like this can happen. I couldn't even imagine what I would feel if one of my projects got stolen. I have heard many comments from people who don't understand crafting and don't respect the time, effort and cost that goes into each project. It's heartbreaking.
  14. I buy all my yarn from her...if she doesn't have it she will order it for you...her customer service can't be beat. They recently closed the main part of the store but they will still do online orders. Prices are usually cheaper than Joanns and Hobby Lobby.
  15. This would be darling on any little girl! http://www.lullabiesandlace.com/summermeadowsbaby.html http://www.lullabiesandlace.com/summermeadowstoddler.html
