  1. Beautiful work -- I love the heart afghan! What a gorgeous scrap-ghan!
  2. Once again Red Heart is gifting us with 12 wonderful (and FREE) patterns for Christmas in July! My absolute favorite is the granny tree skirt! I love it and can't wait to make it! But there are are more to love! Here's the link: http://www.redheart.com/blog/christmas-july-12-free-patterns?utm_source=WhatCounts+Publicaster+Edition&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=12+Christmas+in+July+Patterns&utm_content=It%27s+Christmas+in+July
  3. They are all beautiful! My favorites are the Blue Curacao's but I know they are all going to make someone thrilled to wrap up in!
  4. I love the Hello Kitty hat! I bought a HK hat pattern and then subsequently found about a dozen free ones! LOL! Isn't that always the way? But I do like to support our crochet designers so they will keep providing patterns! I'm not creative in that way and need my patterns! Your creative additions to come out with what you wanted is an art form as well! Very cute!
  5. Welcome from another Florida Gulfcoast member! Since you enjoy making the crochet borders on fleece blankets, you might also be interested in the EdgeryDoo tool in addition to the Quick Stitch blades for rotary cutters. http://www.edgerydoo.com/edgerydoo.html This site will introduce you to it and you can see lots of examples of its use as well as order one or a set if you're interested. Just one more tool to do the style blankets you make. If you're already familiar with it, sorry but maybe someone else reading along will benefit. If you haven't seen them before, you might just get as excited as I did first time I saw the Edgerydoo! It is quite a unique idea. I still like using the Quick Stitch Blade too though. The Edgerydoo doesn't replace it, just adds another option. In fact, I just ordered a new Quick Stitch blade from your site, as I don't know what I've done with mine and your price looks pretty reasonable. Crazy to have so many craft items you lose track of one! I'm not as organized as I wish I was. Hope you like the forum. I have been gone for a while but trying to get back to crochet after surgery on my elbow last year. Maybe a few crochet borders on fleece blankets will make an easy transition back to it! I'll look forward to receiving my new QS blade from you. BTW have you thought about carrying the other sizes of QS blades for flannel and lacings? I could probably use one of the #2 blades for flannel. In Florida, fleece is sometimes too much. Flannel offers a lighter-weight option. The #2 blades make smaller holes closer together than the Original.
  6. Hahaha! Thanks I got a kick out of that one! Very cute.
  7. I'd say that handsome smile was worth every stitch! He was obviously very pleased with your work! That's what makes crochet worthwhile!

    My first afghan

    You have a right to gush! That is beautiful! Your stitches look very nice and uniform in size and tension! That is usually difficult to come by on your first few projects. You have started out at an intermediate level instead of beginner! Very nice!

    Smelly Cat

    I love how you turned a negative (smelly yarn) into a positive (Smelly Cat)! Phoebe Buffay would be proud! I smelled some of that scented yarn once and my impression was the same... it stinks! I think it is Sugar & Cream that has the scented cotton. Either they didn't get their formula right or it didn't age well. Smelly, is right! LOL! Just in case someone wanted to relive the Friends video treatment of Smelly Cat -- here it is: But this is the version we all grew to love on the show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7jlGRq8xZ4 "Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, What are they feeding you? Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, It's not your fault!" LOL! I LOVED that show!
  10. That is beautiful -- you are going to have a very lucky family member at this reunion! Gorgeous use of color! I love the way it blends into each color.
  11. I love your sheep! It is really cute as can be! I can see a whole storybook being designed around this little character! He needs a name though! Do you have a pattern, or is this a OOAK design?
  12. That is the most adorable crocheted baby outfit I have ever seen! How precious for a little girl in the pink & white and it would look just as sweet for a baby boy done in blue & white! Love your designs!
  13. I haven't been on the forum for a while and it was good to dig in and admire all of the amazing work you all have been doing the past few months! Whether you followed a pattern, developed your own pattern or worked a free form design, I thank you for taking the time to share it here on Crochetville! I had almost forgotten how wonderful this site can be. I learn, I bookmark for future use, but most of all I thoroughly enjoy looking at the crochet artistry! You are all artists! The pieces you complete bring a lot of pleasure to people like me who crochet but not as much as I once did. I can't make all the projects I have bookmarked to do ~ even a generous life span will not leave me enough time to crochet the hundreds of projects I have in my Pinterest indexes! So, having all of you share in the making, works out great! You all inspire me and I promise to get busy and finish some of the many WIPs I have sitting around this old house of mine. I just wanted to thank you all for sharing! It really is appreciated more than you know! You all are amazing!! ♥

    Peggy -- that is an adorable Zebra! I bet your daughter loves it! Is the Zebra still the symbol for rare diseases in general or is it a specific one? Whichever illness your daughter has, I hope the prognosis is good and she enjoys her zebra very much.
