    Hi Darlene,

    Thanks for your reply ... and for letting me join.

    Love,

    Jennelle

    About the projects I'm working on ... I worked on those most all of today - it gets to nearly be an obsession with me.

    I've got 1,650 of the rounds done to crochet together [have to learn how to do that yet though. *lol*]

    Anyways - today I calculated how many more I'll need to do in order to have 5 blankets [afghans] done by October and it's something like about nearly 2,400 more.

    Guess ya know what I'll be busy doing all summer, huh?

    Hi Julie,

    You said to let you know what to do ... I'd just asked the same thing when I joined and Darlene said that basically you work on whatever it is that you're working on and well ... then talk about it.

    I hope this helps!

    Love,

    Jennelle

    Well I guess I am part of the needle arts club.....lol. Right now I am working on baby hats to send to a University Hospital for full-term and preemie babies. I also have a few booties and sweaters to send.

    My church also makes midwife kits and sends them to other countries. I make baby hats to put in those kits.

    Hi! I knit, crochet, cross-stitch, do a little hand-piecing and some quilting. Also am accomplished at "lumpy plastic canvas" and "wrong shade of color needle point". Can I join?

    Christina,

    I also do plastic canvas a lot ... what kinds of things do you make with it?

    As for myself, I've made more kleenex box covers and coaster sets than I can begin to count.

    Also I make crosses that I hope to get to missionaries in other countries someday [when I get a whole lot of them done ... have at least 100+ done already, I'm sure!]

    Love,

    Jennelle

    Hi, Jenelle! Well, I attempted a snowman in plastic canvas and a few other things. I can never seem to get the back to be smooth and relatively flat. How do you do that?

    I'd like to join, too. I just started making a quilt. It's my first one and is coming along nicely.

    Suzee, mine sometimes turn out that way as well [lumpy back, etc.]

    One thing I do for smaller items that the back will be seen is to use a lighter weight yarn on them and that helps some [you know - like baby weight yarn.

    Either way, it's probably not gonna turn out totally flat but I just do the best that I can.

    For things that the back isn't seen then I don't worry about it too much [like when I do kleenex boxes and such things, ya don't see the inside and a heavier weight yarn wouldn't matter so much.

    Autumn, good luck on your quilt 'n keep us posted how it's going, K?

    I bought a new sewing machine late last fall and that was my intention [to make quilts] ...

    Well, I bought a bunch of material and have cut some squares out but that's as far as I've gotten.

    I have many, many squares to cut before I even think of getting to the sewing part.

    Not sure besides lack of time because I'm doing plastic canvas and crocheting is why I haven't done more on it -

    or if it's 'cuz I haven't used a sewing machine in over 30 years and am just scared about getting to the sewing part.

    Love,

    Jennelle

    Janelle,

    I hear you on the kleenex boxes and coasters, but they're so much fun to make and giveaway.

    I recently made a cover for my worn out Bible, because I refuse to retire it.

    Christina,

    Ya know, I've made and gave away so many of the kleenex boxes and coaster sets over the years that half the time I can't remember who all I've given them to and who I haven't.

    I love making them though because with me, that is about as relaxed as I ever get [I'm one of those people who have to be doing something all of the time!]

    With working on plastic canvas, much of it is repititious work and I can do it without thinking ... kind of like mindless work and that is the kind I prefer to do [not the kind where I have to pay attention. *lol*]

    I made a bible cover probably 5 or 6 years ago, I didn't have a pattern and it was just a simple one that I did in all white but still, it turned out pretty good.

    Love,

    Jennelle

    My Bible cover was pretty simple, I just measured it and cut the plastic canvas three holes wider, and two holes deeper for the spine.

    I also learned to knit last year, as crocheting hurts my hands (arthritis) so far I have mady a baby blanket, a lapghan, and blanket for DH that fits a twin size bed. I didn't think I would ever finish it. But, I have bipolar and tend to go from project to project. Now I am working on a blanket for me, but I think I'm gonna have to do one for my son first so he doesn't feel left out.

    Jenelle, I'm like you I like the plastic canvas because it so repetitive, it's one of the ways I reduce stress also. My favorite pattern is a tissue box that looks like a house, I think they are just so cute. I made one that had a yard and fence around for my pastor's wife's birthday a couple years ago, I almost didn't want to give it up.

    Suzee,

    sometimes you glue felt to the back of them, mine turn out lumpy too
