I chuckle at this thought because you have me saving all those now and my laundry room closet is overflowing with bags of tp rolls and paper towel rolls waiting to be stuff. I have a couple bags of lint too and a box of candle remnants that I'll use too for them. They work awesome!

With the cooler temps I'm starting to think about crocheting again. I'm determined to finish the hats/ scarves for the mitten tree this year. That will totally empty a tub out of the sewing room.

I do know I'm taking one day next week and deep cleaning the garden shed. I don't think we're in for any wind today so thought I might start on fire starters. I'd love to get those 3 tubs (2 of TP roll sections and 1 of dryer lint) out of the shed.

Can you tell I"m getting in a fall cleaning mode? hehe
How's everyone else doing?

I haven't made Christmas ornaments in years though I used to crochet angels and snowflakes for them then. I was thinking about making some out of stamped Polymer clay this year, jsut don't know if I'll get around to doing them with all else going on. I also have a Babylock machine that does the embroidery that I want to try to make some with too, maybe ministockings to hold gift cards and hang on the tree. Just need about 48 extra hours in each day to do it....
I'm also a Blessings Unlimited Consultant so most of my Christmas shopping in already done this year between that and my swaps items. My family went to doing a secret santa thing a couple years ago, so until I get that person's name and wish list, I can't do that one's shopping and we give each of the kids some cash/gift cards each year, but otherwise, I'm done! I do have to make my cards yet though.

Oh boy, I feel a long couple of months ahead!

I found a really cute daisy pattern for a tawashi on Ravelry last Christmas...very easy! Used tulle for the center and acrylic for the petals...."unfortunately" they were so cute my mom refuses to use them!! Talk about defeating the purpose...

(Edit) sometimes I'm a little slow...just now realized there were more pages after the tawashi posts! LOL

I saw something on pinterest about being able to stamp on ornaments made out of salt dough. I may do some investigation into that.

I did a google search last night (and discovered that google does not know the difference between crochet and knit........) and have bookmarked a few. Actually made one last night which is pretty much just hdc after the beginning chain. It turned out HUGE though - about 9x9. If I made it again I think I would reduce the foundation chain by a few stitches. Intend to do a search on ravelry as well. Don't know why I didn't do that BEFORE I bought the book. I did bookmark one pattern on etsy ($2) which seems to use just small sections - kind of a log cabin quilt block effect and may get that at some point. I have a ton of cotton yarn left over from the puppets I made last year, so lots of yarn in lots of colours to choose from.

Have abandoned the tawashi book for now, and just gone with freebie patterns I found around the net. Have crocheted five dishcloths so far this week, all different patterns. Hope to do a couple more, then will repeat all the patterns in different colours I think.

I used to make things with salt dough... Stamping it sounds fun. My little people would like that too.

I've been hookin' up a storm lately, too.

I didn't get outside to work as I'd hoped. They're all still in the shed. It turned very warm back then and just not good for getting wax to harden. hehe.


I was lucky enough a couple years ago to visit a candle place in Eureka Springs AR that was going out of business. I bought 2 big totes full of candle remnants for $50. Some are perfumed and I can break them up into my candle warmer. But then there was a lot that was undecipherable as to the scent and is perfect for these (which is why I snagged the tubs in the first place )

I keep all the candle remains in their jars in a box, then when we start using the wood stove, I just set them on top of that to warm up/melt, then go stuff the rolls and rubber band them together to stand up, then pour the melted wax in them as I go.

Everything is fine here, Christina. Freelance business is picking up. I've just been really busy. I keep eyeing the crochet tub and plan to take a portion of it upstairs soon. I'm ready for a crochet hook project. You guys ready for fall?

I miss fall in VA.

Yay for DF! So glad he's doing well! Can't wait to see what you're making. I need to start some Christmas projects and stop fooling around with all the other yarny distractions... I'm just not the kind of girl who can settle down and make "Christmas" things in the summer. I have to start 'feeling' it, lol.

I am always ready for fall! We all love it. We joke about moving north to avoid the hot summers. I hope to get some fall decor out this weekend. Of course, that was the plan last weekend too and it didn't happen, lol. The guys will be busy all day tomorrow, so Sweet P and I should be able to play and decorate a bit.

The worst part about fall in VA here is the stink bugs. They are awful! Apparently they've only just moved into the area in recent years. Last fall wasn't terrible, but the fall before that was bad and I think it's going to be bad again from the looks of our windows. Anyone else live in an area with these critters?

Yes, we have the "little darlings." Indiana has lots of those Creep Crawlies that no one wants---and stick bug are one them. Fortunately, they don't much more than just looking around, observing everything. The real problem is ladybugs! They get so bad here; they get in and on the the house and gardening shed! YUCK! I think they stink worse than stink bugs!

Those 'lady' bugs are actually Asian beetles. If you spray around your window frames with Home Defense where they are coming in, they'll crawl through it and die. Very easy to vaccum up. Doesn't help the smell, they still stink hehe. They live in the ground and come up when it gets really warm. They also leave nasty black tracks on your walls and woodwork that is almost impossible to wash away.

stopping for a check in. We are having a rather warm day (80's) before a cold snap comes through. I've already moved my cacti to the green house and dug out the tub of garden sheets for covering my lavendar and late tomatoes.

Took a walk through the orchard last night. I have new growth on my apple trees. Those poor babies are in for a shock. They said on the news today lots of spring flowering trees are starting to set buds but that it won't hurt them come spring they'll just have fewer blooms. nature's way of thining them out as the horticulturalist put it.

We had tons of lady bugs before but never a stink from them. Now these stink bugs on the other hand are driving me insane. We have collected a couple hundred a day lately. Nothing you can do to kill them, jsut collect them and drop them in the toilet and flush away or put in soapwater jars til they drown and then get rid of them. EVERYWHERE! I get more exercise each day from collecting stink bugs constantly and taking them to the toilets than I do if I went for walks! UGH!

I couldn't believe it when I checked out the forums and this thread was at the top of the list. I only went into forums because I wanted to see if there was anyone out there that like to crochet. I just learned to crochet recently. So far, I've made three baby blankets and am working on a fourth. I would love to learn to read a pattern though. I can't figure out what the pattern is trying to tell me or what pictures are showing. I'm much better when I can see it done live and ask questions.

So does anyone in FL crochet? Maybe someone near Tampa???

Wow! I hope I didn't scare everybody away. I just really need some help with crochet. I'm getting a little tired of baby blankets. I'd like to make some baby caps though. I actually have a cool pattern for making a reuseable shopping bag - I'd love to try that one but don't know how to crochet in the round.

Anyone want to help??

Hi there! Welcome! I have only recently learned other things in crochet orther than the chain stitch. LOL! I am still in the learning process aswell. Don't know much about crocheting in the round either. This is one of those things I haven't learned yet. I'm more of a doily person. LOVE doilies! I'm the Doily Lama. LOL!! Just kidding-- I've always wanted to say that. Don't worry, there are some very accomplished crocheters on here. Maybe we can both learn something new! Hugs!

I'm hoping there's someone hungry for cookies. I'll back (from scratch even) if someone will just help me. See I'm not above bribing for help with chocolate chips.

That's dirty. Bribing with cookies! You should be ashamed of yourself!

Not a bad idea. Maybe I should try it. LOL!

If you could post the part of the pattern you are stuck on, perhaps some of the more experienced in this thread could help. It is hard to help without knowing the specifics of the problem.

Thanks, but I'd have to post the whole thing. I'm not sure how to even start. I guess I should tell you that the baby blankets I've done, I've actually created the pattern for. My mother-in-law was impressed and she's knows crochet (and hand-quilting) and said they looked great.

If you aren't sure how to start, then post the beginning for us.
You could also search the pattern name on ravelry and youtube - you may find help there.
also, if you search youtube, there are a ton of tutorials for crocheting in the round, so maybe one of those will help with whatever it is you are stuck on?

Yeah! Or try Googling it. Google has been a friend to me in my research and study of crochet. I also have several great books that have taught me well.

Thanks. I never think about trying YouTube. I'll try that first to see if I can get a better idea and maybe that will get me started.

Hi everyone,

Wanted to share something cute and quick to make for Christmas gifts. They are spiral scarves, really more for looks and fun than to keep you warm, lol.

They don't take much yarn, and you can use any kind. You can use up leftovers, or buy new yarn. They are made with only double crochet and are easy for a beginner.

StampTaylor has another thread going for Christmas gifts and she suggested pairing them with fuzzy socks, which I think make great little gifts. I've already made about 10 of them.

Here is a link:

Love the spiral scarf. I'll have to check out the patter later. I'll try to find StampTaylor's thread.
