  1. I end up using lots of black and it can be challenging. I find dark brown harder than black for some reason and I use that quite a bit for toys, too.
  2. Blue Ribbon Afghans From America's State Fairs
  3. I use saftey pins. I can get multiple sizes, they close, and I don't have trouble with them catching. I tried different kinds of stitch markers when I first started and settled on the pins. They were easy to replace and much cheaper.
  4. It wouldn't make a bad sticky for new comers like myself.
  5. What a beautiful color. July was a great month for us, but I am looking forward to DH's vacation in August. We are doing local trips with family, but it should be lots of fun.
  6. I have no problem with the link with the s.
  7. I just got the new Joann Flyer in the mail. I am hoping it helps.
  8. I should have been more clear. I have the links listed for places you can find the cradle purses. This page on my blog has a variety of links for free doll blankets patterns, pillows, and the Cradle purses. I just checked the page using this link and they are there. If you scroll down the page there is a bold heading that says Cradle Purses. Under that heading are links to find patterns for Cradle purses.
  9. I am thinking of joining to as I don't have a local group to join. I am about to get started making some toys for a local Church sale to raise money for their school and other projects. I think I am going to start with dinos as they tend to be popular.
  10. These are the free pattern links I have listed on my blog: Scroll Down to Cradle Purses
  11. There is no need to go back to basics with all the dish cloth patterns out there. There are tons of free and patterns to buy with various stitch challenges. I just picked up a few books at my favorite second hand store.
  12. Hello Kitty is so popular. I made one from a free pattern that was a HUGE hit. None of her friends have crocheting family/friends just knitters so she was the only one in the crowd with the purse. Yours is beautiful. Everyone will want to know where she got such a stylish purse.
  13. Beautiful work. I wish we had local fairs like that here. I love seeing hand made work.
  14. Dishcloths are a great way to try out new stitches but practical. I find they are great cleaners. My niece gave me my first knit one and then when I learned I started making my own. Some end up being too pretty, but for the most part ours get dirty, wash clean, and are up for the task again.
  15. Birthday Gift Card Presents
  16. Sent in my survey. This sounds like fun. I am excited to try my first swap.:crocheting:mail
  17. Thank you to a wonderful elf who sent me an adorable pattern for Bubby Stick Hobby Horse. I have a couple of nephews who would love these. I just have to get hubby to work with me on the stick part. I love the idea of crocheting the heads. We just looked at some wooden ones at a museum yesterday.
