  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. These are the free pattern links I have listed on my blog: Scroll Down to Cradle Purses
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Beautiful work. I wish we had local fairs like that here. I love seeing hand made work.
  7. 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.

  9. Sent in my survey. This sounds like fun. I am excited to try my first swap.:crocheting:mail
  10. 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.
  11. Much depends on what you want to make, too. I love to make toys and doll clothes and have lots of the current published books while using vintage sites to increase my collection. However, most of the stuff being published is e-patterns now for toys. I have started collecting older magazines like the Annie's various series that I love from vintage sites. I still purchase Crochet World and Crochet Today as they also carry doll and toy patterns. Over the last year I have started to make afghans so I have purchased some books. I have found some patterns in magazines and lots through the vintage used market. Many are variations on the theme, but some are easier to read than others.
  12. I found two links I listed on my blog Wedding Crochet Patterns
  13. I found the children's section at the library was great for learning the basic stitches. I wasn't always crazy about the projects, but the directions were clear and easy to follow. I found dishcloths using cotton yarn were great starting projects, practical, and a good way to try out new stitches and practice directions as I was learning to read them. I wish I had known about cotton as I found the acrylic squares I made rather impractical in the beginning for much of anything when I was finished.
