I have started this new thread to replace the old one which was just too full.

Here is something I'm working on.



I'm using fabric from the fabric swaps.

I'm working on a redo of the bathmat I made earlier. To make the spiral lay flat and not come apart, I used t-shirt yarn to make slip stitches all the way around the braid. Using these as a foundation, I am now single stitching the braid into a spiral.

I've been busy in my studio working on a patriotic bench pillow for the swing on my front porch. Seven blocks with top and bottom borders. Here are the first two blocks . . . only five to go

Just make an educated guess about where you want it and sew it on. Or if it is preferred, measure the area and sew on some evenly spaces grid lines with a contrasting color and follow a drawing or graph. It is also easy to count the rows on a finished project and mark off a space for the initials. I would use a chain stitch in yarn if it needs to be curly and a satin stitch to make block letters. Be aware that counting and measuring carefully is the key to a successful result.

Marie, how would I embroider it on the crochet?

Krista

Embroidery is the best option especially for a small project. For a larger project, such as a blanket, I would make a chart and pick up the colors of the initials as one crochets.

I need some opinions! I have a friend who would like for me to add your sons initials to a crocheted baby yoda. How could I do this? Embroidery? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

April, thatís going to be so cute! I canít wait to see it all finished.

Jean, your lemon tree is beautiful. Getting down to 15 UFOs is awesome. I wish I only had that many. I need to get back at my UFO list again.

A Tree Grows in Deary -- Right on schedule. I just finished my Lemon Tree. Woo Hoo. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. This was summer of a 4-seasons project. Spring was done last year before Coronamadness hit. Autumn is in the UFO stage and will be completed by September (hopefully), --. Winter is only in the planning stages. I do have all the fabric for it, but that's it. Only have 15 or so UFO's to go. LOL.

Farmgirl hugs and I hope y'all had a good Memorial Day and spent some time remembering our heroes who make the free life we live possible.

I love the bear, freezer pop holder and Afghan. Great colors in all of them.

Well.. today I "Made a Mess!"... lol!

Nothing constructive, as my house is still upside down until after this coming Wednesday when the new windows are install... and then I can get things back in order and play in my crafting room... goodness knows, there is no lack of UFO's in that room! lolol!

But, I am currently working on a simple single crochet lap snuggy.. but I ran short 1 skein of yarn,, go figure...fingers crossed I can find the exact color match...
"Measure twice,,, Cut once"" you'd think I would know that by now! lol!

Linda -- It sometimes deletes my posts too. Internet gremlins.
That pickup truck panel is cute; it will be great for Winter.

Linda, that panel is darling and very festive! I can't wait to see how it turns out. Please share a picture!

I made Everleigh a new freezer pop holder since her last one is starting to fall apart. She really liked the idea of a watermelon one, so that's what I made.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR/ had a long post done and when I clicked Submit it said my password was incorrect and I now have to do it all over again. Now if I can only remember what I said.

In the last 2 days I have finished the TOP of a Pumpkin Table Runner (I still need to choose a backing fabric and quilt - probably stitch-in-the-ditch), 2 vintage style roll/bun holders, a microwave baked potato bag, and trimmed up a panel for a panel round-robin exchange in my quilt guild. Here is the panel I am using.

We will be divided into groups of 5 and 4 others will work on borders around this panel. I can't wait to see what they add to the panel. I am including some coordinating fabrics I have that they can use if they want.

I also have 7 more of these panels I got to make a Panel Stack-n-Whack One-block-Wonder quilt. I probably won't do that until fall - when it is cooler outside and I want to stay in and sew.

Grace, let me know how it goes! Lol I finally decided what I want on my crocheted top towels. I want to make some Harry Potter things out of vinyl. The hard part is deciding if I want to use my dads vinyl machine and figure it out myself or if I should pay someone else to do the vinyl. I try to do as much as I can myself sometimes.

I am almost finished with the second bear. I ran out of stuffing and needed some more before I could move on. I bought some last night and hope to finish it tonight or tomorrow.

Grace, I wish I could say that was me, but itís not! Maybe one day. I think a glass of wine would be perfect! It may help you remember your stitches lol! Definitely watch the video on the magic circle. I feel like itís much easier to use.
