  1. I received an "update" email about your post, so I had to take a look! Thanks for all of your posts!
  2. Are you sure that you are matching up the same rows that slant to the left and then to the right with those rows on the graph? Does the face of the fabric only show the front of the stitches (not every other row)?
  3. You are welcome to visit - just email me the next time you're in the area!
  4. Thanks! I really enjoy blogging about tapestry crochet. I have total freedom to say what I want and can add lots of colorful pictures! I'm so glad you enjoy reading it!
  5. I recommend that you try the felted amulet bag at http://iweb.tntech.edu/cventura/amulet.html that includes links to tutorials. I also suggest you join the free group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TapestryCrochet/ and look through the old messages at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TapestryCrochet/ and post your own questions and accomplishments! I hope you will give it a try!!! Thanks!
  6. I hope you will be inspired by my last three blog entries at http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/blog/ that focus on tapestry crochet design.
  7. http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/blog/ Thanks!
  8. My CGOA Conference roomate, Karen Whooley, told me how to post a picture, so I am going to give it a try in this message. Thanks, Karen!!!
  9. I tried to post a photo, but couldn't figure out how to do it!
  10. The new Spring issue of CrochetMe includes my "Get Your Ducks in a Row" bead tapestry crochet basket at http://tinyurl.com/37yd6m . I hope you will give this free pattern a try!
  11. If you can do single crochet, you should be able to do tapestry crochet. Please take a look at my web page for some free projects with internal tutorials to get you started. I would begin with the striped basket before moving onto pieces with beads, though. Thanks,
  12. Crochet Today (April /May 2007) just published my bead tapestry crochet lidded basket. They asked for a southwest motif, so that was the inspiration. I hope you will give it a try!
  13. The crocheting instructions for the basket are on page 10 of Creative Living http://www.kenw.org/cl/5200crafts2.pdf I hope you will give it a try!
  14. Four "Creative Living with Sheryl Borden" TV clips that feature tapestry crochet are now on YouTube. They are linked to my web page at http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/ The videos include an introduction to tapestry crochet, how to design motifs on tapestry crochet graph paper, how to use a bead spinner, and how to tapestry crochet a basket with bead highlights. I hope you will take a look! Thanks,
  15. I finished putting put my Creative Living segments about tapestry crochet on YouTube yesterday. They had to be edited to fit into the new 10 minute time limit. I split the bead tapestry crochet segment into 2 because I didn't want to edit out 3 minutes, so there are 4 videos now linked to my web page at http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/ I hope they work for you now! Thanks!
