  1. I also recognized that doily right away! I started mine about a year and a half ago but then life got in the way. I'd love to finish it but I don't have much time for crochet lately with a baby and a toddler who likes to grab and run! Btw, yours look great!
  2. This leisure arts book has a hooded cape pattern. I made one a couple years ago when I first learned to crochet. Unfortunately I can't find my pictures of it at the moment. I'll post them when I find them. http://www.leisurearts.com/customer_care/search/item_detail.asp?item_num=3805&sort=title&page=1&rec_num=1&startRec=0&skill=KC&search=hooded%20cape#
  3. I lurked on the EZBoard site and here for a while before I finally signed up in May 05. I haven't been around much at all in the past year but I hope to get back into the groove again soon!
  4. I'm still here! I actually finished mine about 2 weeks ago, just haven't had time to post pics. Here it is on my bed, that's a queen size bed so I think it'll fit a single size much better. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet803.jpg For the border I did a round of hdc and a round of reverse sc http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet808.jpg I was standing on the bed holding the camara against the ceiling trying to get as much of it in the picture as I could. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet811.jpg I don't think I would have ever gotten this done without this Cal!! Now to start on the next one!
  5. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Here is the Bedspread Crochet along. Just jump right in and say hi! http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=39921
  6. That's very beautiful! You should join the Bedspread Crochet along.
  7. I think most kids that age still like stuffed animals. Maybe you could make him a hacky sack too and have the bear match the colors of the hackey sack. Here's the mini bear rug I made. I'm not very good at putting faces on. I thought I did a pretty good job on the eyes until I sewed the head on and realized they made him look like...well, a dead bear rug:think I hope hubby likes it anyways!! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet800a.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet801a.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet802a.jpg
  8. Welcome sunflowermom1972!! There's no rules for this one. Just let us know how you're doing and if you need any help. Most important of all is make sure to show us pics when you're done! I've decided to start with this one, all I have left to do is sew on his head and give him a face. There's a couple others I want to do too. DH will be happy I'm finally making some teddy bears He used to collect them when he was a kid. I was told he had over 300!!
  9. I'm so excited to have this almost done! If it wasn't for this CAL I'd probably still only have 6 squares done. Now I only have 2 squares left to make and and a little bit more joining...and the border. I don't think I'll be able to work on it much more until after out trip and I won't be here for photo friday so I took some pics today. It's still a bit lumpy looking but hopefully when I get it joined the rest of the way and probably washed it'll straighten out a better. That's a queen size bed it's sitting on but the person it's going to has a smaller bed so I think it'll be just right. I thought the sunlight would help but my camara didn't agree http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet797a.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet795.jpg Reggie reminding me to weave in those ends http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v35/Pikaboo/CROCHET/crochet798a.jpg
  10. Hello and Welcome! I'm over near Syracuse:snow:wbrr
  11. Tracey that's to cool! The first thing I thought of was poppeys.
  12. Knic Knac that looks great! I'm the same way, I always try to make sure there's not a mess in the background. I like how it fits just right on your bed. I have no idea what you could do to make it overhang. Sorry I'm not much help:no
  13. It's me that's heading down to Floriday on Friday...is Shaylen going too? I may be starting another bedspread while in the car, I haven't decided yet. It's a loooong ride from Ny to Fl!! Anyways I finally got to get more yarn yesterday. It looks like it's a great match but I'll see when I get some squares made. Only 6 more to go!! I'm hoping to get those done and joined as much as I can before I go on vacation.
  14. Julie and Brae, I love both your colors! I was able to get 9 more squares done since last week before running out of yarn. I haven't joined anymore together yet so I haven't taken a new picture...unless you really want me to;) I'm hoping to get more tomorrow but we have a busy weekend so I don't know if we'll make it out that way. I would go today but it's about :snow0 degrees outside and I don't want to take DD out unless I really have to!! Makes me so glad that by this time next friday we'll be on our way to Florida for a week! Hmm I better find something to do for the car ride!
  15. I think I got about 5 squares out of each skein so I'm pretty sure I don't have enough for the squares. But good idea Julie. If the color is off a bit maybe I can arrange the squares so it looks like I did it on purpose;) I might not even be able to get to the store til this weekend. Good think I have lots of other projects to work on!!
