  1. Wow what a great job for your first bag! I noticed the pattern doesnt say what weight thread or yarn to use or how much? Any clues?
  2. Thanks everyone for your response Tunisian is not difficult at all. Its kind of like doing the first part of the sc stitch only till you get to the end, then doing the last part all the way back. Cross stitch is a bit more annoying though, if you aren't used it it.
  3. I just got my Ukrainian X-stitch (on tunisian crochet) bag published i Interweave Crochet! This is my first pattern published in Interweave. http://www.interweavecrochet.com/issue/materials_win07.asp#lockhart
  4. This is beautiful! I havent tried entrelac, but this maes me want to try!
  5. Hi Jeanie, Thanks for the compliment Its in the Spring 2007 issue of FC Easy crochet. The cover has a white crochet cardigan with purple pansy border.
  6. These are really adorable. I love the color and pattern combinations
  7. Wow thats awesome! Are you geting any of your photo-afghans published anywhere? Because you should!
  8. Congratulations Tara! Your designs look great! And what a neat idea!
  9. I got this in email and had to share it with y'all: A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years.They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about. For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside. She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents. "When we were to be married," she said, "my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll." The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness. "Honey," he said, "that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?" Oh," she said, "that's the money I made from selling the dolls."
  10. Sounds great! I'm in! Except I dont have a tent or RV. You might want to research it regarding liability etc if someone has an accident and work out the food situation. I went to a crochet reatreat on Whidbey Island (near Seattle) last year and we had the head of the CGOA give lessons and had a field trip to yarn stores, it was really great! Like a slumber party with crochet.
  11. Better Homes and Gardens is also stopping its Simply Creative Crochet magazine
  12. Hi Tami, I'm glad you liked the pattern. It must have been you they emailed me about! Looking at the instructions and looking at my purse it looked correct, but they started the rounds at a different place from my original pattern that I submitted is why I didnt spot the turn thing. Does this correction sound right? [Round 6: Sl st in next st, ch 2, HDC IN NEXT 16 STS , *FPtr around next post etc. ] It would be so much easier with a stitch diagram. I think more magazines should use those. ~Alex
  13. I got informed of a mistake in the published pattern in round 6. Round 6 would be: Sl st in next st, ch 2, HDC IN NEXT 16 STS , *FPtr around next post etc. Did anyone else have problems with this row? P.S. HER your bag looks great!
