  1. Just gorgeous!! I particularly like the third one... do you have a pattern reference for it?
  2. Thanks! Karen, it's hard to tell, I worked on it on and off (sometimes putting it aside for several months!). All in all, it was 'in progress' for nearly 2 years.
  3. Another warm welcome from the west coast of Florida! I have a cousin named Claudine...
  4. Here's a table runner I've been working on for about 2 years, on and off. It's a standard spiderweb design. I finished off each end with just plain squares when I saw it was a little on the short side. Used Grandma's Best #10 thread for it (I had a couple of 1,000-yd balls), and a 1.5mm hook. Blocking was almost as time-consuming as the actual crocheting! I blocked it a few times along the way, then blocked the finished project in 2 phases as it was too long for my blocking board. Finished piece is about 56.5 in. x 15 in.
  5. I don't know if these are as easy as you'd like, but they're awfully cute. I have these on my to-do list. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spiral-molly-fingerless-gloves
  6. How about this one? http://www.crochetville.com/community/topic/99707-colorful-yarn-flower/
  7. A friend of mine wants to help, can I share your address with her?
  8. Ok I have olive green in my stash left over from the HAP project so please PM me your address and I'll send a square.
  9. I'll look in my stash. Pretty sure I have dark green in there somewhere. When are you looking to get these, and how many are you looking for in all? I heard about the bad storms from my family on the west coast of France (same storm that battered both sides of the Channel).
  10. You probably already do this, but a spring-themed wish list, so we can do flowers/pastel/spring items.
  11. I too got a lovely card from an IN FGM. Thank you!
  12. I received a lovely card all the way from Poland today!! First time I've never received mail from Poland. In it were a lovely wooden nativity ornament, and a thread crochet ornament. Both will be on the tree tomorrow. Thank you, FGM!
  13. Today, I received a lovely Christmas card from a MA FGM. Thank you, it is beautiful!
  14. Today's mail brought a nice thick envelope from a NY FGM, complete with cute Christmas napkins, a lovely card, handy folding scissors, and a beautiful magnet with the NYC skyline! Thank you thank you! You made my day.
  15. I think we all love looking at finished projects! I think yours looks better than the original! Beautiful work.
  16. I too got a beautiful thread pineapple ornament from a wonderful MO fgm, along with a lovely glittery card. I love thread things (especially pineapples!) and this one is gorgeous. Thank you so much! It's on the tree as we speak.
