Re: My first projects :)

The purse if very nice, the crocheted border and rose really make it special. How did you do the border?

Re: My first projects :)

I am the way, crocheting and watching movies relax me more than anything!

Re: How to Sew Pouches to Organize Your Life

Thanks for this great tutorial. especially the zipper pouch. All these years i have been avoiding zippers but will try to learn now!

Re: English Paper Piecing

I love the idea of me quilting but am never satisfied with my sort of boring layouts. I THINK I CAN DO THIS! THANKS!
I'm going to start by making potholders, that's a good idea!

Re: Crochet Dress Bag

This is adorable!

Re: How to Make an Easy Crocheted Holiday Garland

I can see this would really brighten up my daughter's drably colored college room! And I need desperately to use up some of my precious clutter.
We're moving in the spring so I will have less to move. Then I'll fun building up another clutter collection in our new apartment!

Re: How to Make Hats from Recycled Sweaters

I know what I'm going to give my daughters' boy friends for Christmas now! The only challenge: measuring their heads without their guessing why! thank you!

Re: Resparkle Your Old Ornaments: Round One

i couldn't bear to throw away our old round christmas tree bulbs. I just knew there must be a way to spiff them up!

THANK YOU!! We'll have fun with this project!

Re: How to Make a Snowstorm

Thank you for this. we live next to the sea in Crete. It snows at our house maybe once every eighty years!!

this is a lovely design. making this project and hanging up our 'snow' will help us keep in the spirit of giving for the holidays!

Re: How to Embroider a Festive Polarfleece Stocking

This is a lovely design, like snowflakes swirling. the stocking is more suitable for my grown up daughters! I've been looking for such a pattern! I'm going to make three or four of these so I can tuck our favorite little bears into them. It does look cozy!

Re: Make an Embellished Day of the Dead Collage

This is lovely and imaginative. Here in Greece photos of those that have passed, saints and personal altars have a special place in homes. Also I learned last year that Greece, too, has a Day of the Dead with special foods. I hope this summer I will be able to use your guide to make our own Day of the Dead collage with a Greek flavor.

Re: Dare to Make It: Ready, Set, Craft!

This is really inspiring! I have so many materials to work with ALL OVER the house, really I have no reason to buy gifts. I'm printing our this article right now! I like working from lists and yours is a good one for how-to. THX!

Re: How to Make a Custom Photo Album

you are a woman after my heart! I can't wait to start! I have big manila envelopes with stuff from my vacations, just waiting for such a good idea!
And I know how I'm going to decorate the photo album for the photos I'll give my mom for Christmas this year! Your directions are very easy to follow.

Re: Beaded Pink Ribbon Change Purse

This little purse looks like it would be nice and soft to hold. I especially like the lining, it makes the purse elegant. Tell ms. Radical Glenda: You are a Warrior Princess!

Re: How to Make Your Embroidery Thread Behave

Good to know!

Re: Recycled Necktie Card Holders

Wow,I like these a lot. I've been searching for an idea of what to make my husbands students when they graduate and go out into the real world . . . this looks perfect. I like both styles. My husband for some reason inherits all the ties in his family that no one else wants . . . this is going to help me out there, too! would like to have instructions if you have a chance. Thanks

Re: Poodle Skirts

This is a very lovely outfit! We're very close to our little pet dog, too, so I like this idea a lot. We dressed our dog in a ballerina recital dress left over from dance lessons during carnival one year. She loved it, a real show off. I will look for your pattern!
