    Super job!! I love the colors that you used!! Another one for the "to do" list.
  7. Thank you all for the wonderful compliments on the tote. I value all of your comments! My finger is permanently crooked; I'm not sure if I broke it or not. The middle knuckle is twice the size that it should be. But I am working it by making a fist as often as possible. Hopefully, soon the fingers will touch the palm. I honestly should be more careful Roli - I had problems with the crosses as well. A few are a tad crooked, but I did my best Angiefl73 - I found the pattern here - http://www.freepatterns.com/list.html?cat_id=337 Go to the bottom of the page for the Tapestry Tote to download the pattern. Enjoy!
  8. I have finally finished a project that I started quite a while ago. I was sidelined with an injury that put a halt to my crocheting for a bit. I have been walking on my lunch hour every day at work due to health issues. On one walk, I must not have been paying attention as I tripped and fell. I broke my fall with my left hand and I really did a number on my pinkie finger. Tho I am right handed, when I crochet, my left pinkie is my tension gauge. I finally figured out another method until I get my little finger working again. The edging of the motifs is a white, gray and black mix. I hope you like it!
  9. Why would we laugh ... it's gorgeous!!!! Love your work!!
  10. Hi and welcome from Lombard!! ... and, repeating Mrs Principal, GO BEARS!!!
  11. Hi and welcome from Lombard!! Hope you enjoy it here - this is a super place!!
  12. Super job!!! Great work!
  13. I must be honest and say that the majority of the yarn that I have has been given to me and I haven't spent more than $30 in the past 1-1/2 years for yarn to complete projects. When friends / moms of friends / co-workers find out that I crochet, they give me their yarn that they don't want to keep around their house anymore. With this, I am blessed!
