Hello all crafters! I want to look for a good purse that has inside multiple pockets, then maybe make my own outside to cover it- but that may just take too much money. It used to be the other-way-around. You could make things cheaper than buying them, but the yarn/thread is so expensive now.
Keep Smilin'! A good laugh- for any reason- will do anyone good!
I agree Mary the yarn has gotten very expensive. Hopefully you find what you are looking for.
It is hot and very very dry here. I don't mind the heat at all but it does bother many people.
I have a lot of work to do so better get to it. Have a good day everyone. Jeanette
Glad you stopped by to chat. I'll look at purse patterns now.
I agree, too. Yarn prices have gone up. When I do get to go to a crafty store like JoAnns or A.C. Moore I always check the clearance sections to look for marked down yarn. I recently found Lion Cotton yarn on clearance and bought two balls. One is purple and one is espresso. I made a dish towel out of the purple one already and I am saving the espresso to make a dish towel while we are traveling on vacation. I am going through my yarn stash and making projects from what I already have and I told myself that I can buy anymore yarn until my stash is gone, unless the yarn is on a really great discount and I know what kind of a project I am going to make.
I have been doing good so far. I gathered all of my leftover cotton yarn and started a dish towel. I found a pattern that had a technique I had never tried before and when a yarn runs out I just pick a different one and keep going. It is actually turning out pretty neat and I am enjoying the pattern. Some projects will have to wait until the weather cools down. I just don't want something heavy lying in my lap right now. !
Here are some pictures of the purple dish towel.
Annie: I love purple! I want to make so much with purple color. I'm wondering if I should buy the nylon thread, in purple, and make a purse. I want the lined pockets though, so it may be a big project though. You did a very nice job.
Keep cool! It's supposed to be 107 degrees today here!
Hello to all, Remember me? I know I have been gone but I hope not forgotten. I have been doing the same knitted projects as before to replace for the craft fairs. I know I have been on FB those darn games get to me and by the time I finish it is time to get dinner ready. I just read about a months worth of posts. I will try to be better.
It has been very hot here also. Gotta love the AC.
Well I will let you all go.
P.S. jeanette------how's the sweater coming along?
Donna I am back to the sweater now that I got my new great nieces things all made I think. So I am half way done with the front and I have all the back done. So now I can progress faster. Don't think I have anything else I have to get done by a certain time. It is good to have you back although I keep track of you on facebook.
Mary I still need to see if I have some of that purple nylon thread and how much. I must write that down or I don't remember.
That purple dishcloth is really pretty. And a pretty design. Nice job.
It has been very hot here too. But today has cooled off some. Only 86 degrees today so far instead of 100. So you easterners have hope in sight.
Have a good day all. Jeanette
Hello Ladies. Annie I use a knitted log cabin technique (think of a quilt pattern) that I use for my cotton bits and pieces to use up to make dish cloths. I have to admit I haven't perfected it yet so those dish cloths stay in my kitchen, but they work.
We do not have the benefit of AC here, have to depend on lake breezes which have been stagnat! No knitting for about a week due to hot weather and company. I was having serious withdrawal, but all is well and I am back to my "therapy", knitting! As the rest of you, I am working on small projects, primarily hats. I did finish the kimono finally and gave it to Miss GD.
Very dry here also. When we do get wetness from the skies it comes down in torrents which does no good because it just runs off. We need a nice soaking rain. The farmers here are in dire straits. We are in the heart of cherry country and if I remember correctly (that's asking a lot) last year a quart of cherries were $4, this year $6.50.....YIKES! Sadly the apple crop may fare no better ] Stay hydrated, Linda
