Re: Book Giveaway: Stripped Down Patchwork

Hi there,
I just got your message and would love to enter your giveaway. I already see a couple of things on the cover I'd like to make and I'd love to make that cupcake apron for my neice. For her birthday I got her cookbook just on cupcakes because she is so enthused about making and decorating them. Needless to say the apron would be the "icing on the cake" so to speak.

Thanks so much for this opportunity. I just love you site. You always have so many great ideas and patterns it's hard to know which one to start with.

Re: More Fabric Baskets

These are simply gorgeous Susan. You obviously have a talent for making them and being creative. I want to make some too, but wish I knew how to make them as beautiful as you. Thanks for sharing . . . . I'll use them as my motivation.

Re: How to Hand-Sew a Buttonhole

Seems there a quite a number on this thread that think they can do better than Cal, yet I haven't been able to find THEIR tutorials. Hmmmmmmmmm. What's the old saying??
............ All blow and no show??

If all you better-than-thou people can do it better, let's see it. Put your TUTORIAL where your MOUTH is. Come on, we all want to learn your wonderful techniques. If not, then quit bad mouthing the people who ARE putting themselves out there and doing a good job of it too. Either put-up, or shut-up!!!

Re: How to Hand-Sew a Buttonhole

TO: Elleba . . . . . if all you could do was write a post criticizing Cal Patch's hand sewn buttonhole and extolling YOUR "expertise" you should have kept it to yourself. First of all, nobody likes a braggart, and that is exactly what you were doing. And secondly, there seems to be one lesson you did NOT learn growing up and in your 70 years of life, and that is tact. So the next time you are tempted to brag or put someone down who is "out there" helping other people with tutorials, don't bother, because we aren't interested and we happen to ENJOY and APPRECIATE all that Cal does.

Re: How to Make a Stitches-and-Stripes Tote Bag

Cute, fun, and easy to make with you tutorial. Thanks.

Re: Book Giveaway: World of Geekcraft

Oh my gosh, this would be sooo cool and helpful. I love learning new things and truthfully I need some help with embroidery and I so want to learn everything I can about beading to sew on clothes and make jewelry. If you have projects for kids, my grandkids come to vist every summer and it would be just great to have it so that we can work on a project together. They love that kind of stuff. Thanks for your generous opportunity.

Re: How to Crochet a Rug out of T-Shirts

CalPatch.... you are the BOMB!!! Finding you has been a God send. Not only do I love this rug, but the timing is perfect. I had foot surgery about 1-week ago, on crutches, and I am supposed to stay off my feet as much as possible. MUCH easier said than done!!! However, you have given me something fun, creative, and productive to do that will help keep me and my foot where they need to be. Your tutorial is great and just from what little time I've been able to spend on your site I can tell you I look forward to coming back often.

Thanks so very much for sharing....see ya soon!
