ROAD TRIP: OVER!

Our first Road Trip of the year has concluded. In this Crochet Along we practiced our basic stitches and techniques.

Things I learned from this trip: 1- I like the way the bowl looks and feel when I used the glue. I had to add several layers of glue to give the bowl the

hard finished I wanted.

2- I wouldn’t use liquid starch for this type of project.

3- When I get tired of the bowl I can use it as a doily :-)

All things considered I think Crochet Bowls are nice and practical and can be used for mementos, souvenirs, in bathrooms, offices, etc.

I am checking to see if I find an App that allows me to make a movie out of Photographs. If you know of one please share :-)

Well, this is all for now all you lovely people, I hope you learned a thing or two, Practice makes Perfect.

Have a Very Beautiful Safe and Creative Weekend…See You Soon…

 

 

 

STA-FLO PLUS ELMER’S GLUE-ALL

What happens when you try to mix Starch with Extra strong Elmer’s glue? they do not mix.

Because the glue clumped up and refused to dissolve in the starch, I decided to separate them. 

First, I starched my doily/bowl with the full strength of the starch and let it dry. The result was not what I expected, it was not rock hard but floppy so I applied the glue directly to my doily/bowl and I am still waiting for it to dry.

Let us hope this time it dries rock hard, if not I will need to re-apply the glue. I think the glue is better for this type of project.

So this is all for now, hopefully I will have good news tomorrow.      

ROAD TRIP a.k.a CROCHET BOWL DAY: 6

Hi everyone onboard, this is our final day and we are adding highlights for a finished look or if you have a nice edging stitch  you are welcome to use it.

I had red #10 thread so I did back post single crochet in every stitch except in the pair of trebles where I did 4BPSC, because I did not want it to be too tight.   





   Tip if you are doing your edges make certain it is not too tight, for this design it wouldn’t be a plus.

I am going to wash and starch and will post the final day tomorrow, this trip was fun for me, since I had no frogging meltdowns, Yay!! :-)

See you soon..
