  1. I just discovered 14 skeins of this yarn in my garage but they're only 102 yards per skein. I hope to find a few more so I can make a long-sleeved sweater for myself. There's no dye lot thank goodness. Anyone have Yarn Bee Boucle Traditions in grapetone #165? My skeins originally were purchased at Hobby Lobby. Willing to pay a reasonable price plus shipping. Thanks!
  2. These magazines have been sold. Thank you for your interest. I have 23 of these half-sized magazines: 12 Hooked on Crochet 5 Crochet Home 1 Coats and Clark's Afghans (Knit and Crochet) 1 Red Heart Easy Afghans (Knit and Crochet) 1 Knitting Made Easy 1 Red Heart Aran Classics (crochet) 1 Coasts & Clark More Toys (knit and crochet) 1 Coats & Clark More Granny Squares (crochet) All in reasonably good condition with no missing pages (though two have small items clipped from them...does not appear to affect the pattern) Selling as a bundle for $15 including shipping in the U.S. Paypal preferred but will take checks and cash.

    Houston Holocaust Museum - Butterflies needed

    What a fabulous project! I can't imagine anyone not wanting to participate in something as moving as this. I'm going to contact all my creative friends as well. I was raised Jewish (I'm an aethiest now....even if I can't spell it) but my family came to the United States before the war.

    Rejected before I begin?

    I wouldn't buy them anything either. Ungrateful people, that's all they seem to be......

    Thought I'd refresh this thread as the Mother Bear Project is still around. Here's a link to a very worthwhile cause! http://www.motherbearproject.org/

    Tips on writing a book, please

    Some best selling authors started off as self-publishing their work! So I'm all in favor of it though I personally have not taken the leap (yet)!

    hummingbird doily

    There was a thread about this very doily not too long ago. There is an artist who posts her finished products on eBay and she is claiming the design as her own. The pattern is not for sale.
  14. found this: http://huangfamily.com/craftingjapanese/archives/free_patterns/ I don't think you'll find too many as they're still very popular and people are willing to pay for them.....
