  1. That is wonderful! Just one of the reason why I love people, they can be so generous!
  2. Hi all! My daughter has a new pattern out! It's here: http://lillypillysfancyfrillies.blogspot.com/2012/12/basket-weave-e-reader-case.html It's for a baket-weave case for an e-reader (more specifically, for a kindle fire). It's pretty fast and easy to make. It also protects fairly well. Enjoy! Page [url=http://lillypillysfancyfrillies.blogspot.com/2012/12/basket-weave-e-reader-case.html][/url]
  3. I received them today! Thank you so much! I can't wait to use them!
  4. If you need a quick cover for a wine bottle, this one takes less then an hour. Also, this makes for a stretchy cover. Fits an average wine bottle. (sorry the picture is sideways, I have no idea why that is) Materials: J-hook (6.0 mm) 3 ounces of WW Yarn (I used redheart) Yarn needle Stitches used and abbreviations used: chain (ch) single crochet (sc) double crochet (dc) slip stitch (sl st) stitch (st) Fasten Off (FO) Notes: - ch 3 at beginnings of rows counts as a dc stitch -if you already have the wine bottle you are going to use, rows 6-31 are where you can make size adjustments. Try the cover on the wine bottle and if it is to long or short, add more rows or less. Pattern: ch 4, join with a sl st to form ring 1) ch 3, work 11 dc in ring, join with a sl st to top of ch 3 (12 stitches) 2) ch 3, dc in same stitch, (2 dc in next stitch) around, join with a sl st to top of ch 3 (24 stitches) Row 3 worked in BLO: 3) ch 1, sc in same stitch, sc in each stitch around (24 stitches) 4) ch 1, sc in same stitch, (ch 1, skip next st, sc in next st) 11 times, ch 1, join w/ sl st to first sc (12 sc, 12 ch) 5) sl st into first ch of previous row, ch 1, sc in same stitch as sl st, (ch 1, skip sc st from previous row, sc in ch of previous row) 11 times, ch 1, join w/ sl st to first sc (12 sc, 12 ch) 6-31) repeat row 5 32) ch 1, sc in same stitch, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st (sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st) 7 times, join w/ sl st to first sc (32 sc) 33) ch 1, sc in same st, 2 sc in next st (sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) 15 times, join w/ sl st to first sc (48 sc) Either FO after row 33 or work the edging. Optional Edging: (ch 3, sl st in next st) around FO and weave in ends For Tie: Chain 92, FO and weave in ends Weave this tie between the “holes” made by the chain stitches in row 30 and tie in a bow. Other tie options: ribbon, a contrasting color of yarn, etc. Enjoy! * This pattern has not been tested, so if you find a mistake or the instructions are to unclear, let me know by comment or PM!

  5. Hello everybody! I came across this website and found they were making snowflakes for the children at Sandy Hook School. They want to make a "winter wonderland" for the children to return to in order to help them cope with the trauma. :flake:flake:flake:flake:flake:flake:flake This link takes you to the website that gives the address and snowflake ideas: http://www.momendeavors.com/2012/12/snowflakes-for-sandy-hook.html :flake:flake:flake:flake:flake:flake:flake This link takes you directly to the PTA of CT website where the idea comes from: http://www.ctpta.org/About-CT-PTA/SANDY-HOOK-FUND.html :flake:flake:flake:flake:flake:flake:flake The website says to "get creative" with snowflakes, so I think it means they can be any craft material, i.e. crocheted, paper, foam, etc. I made some and you can mail about three (paper when folded or crocheted) in a regular envelope. Every little bit helps! Plus if you have younger kids or grandchildren, it is a fun little craft to do even if they don't realize what happened at Sandy Hook. They are collecting them until January 12, 2013. That's when the children are going back to school. (I am not in charge of this in case I didn't make that clear. The snowflakes are being sent to the PTA of CT [address in either link] thanks!)
