Me on DIY: Uncommon Threads

October 6th, 2006 · 9 Comments · TV

I know, I know, I shoulda said so sooner! But I’ve been so wrapped up in other things, I’ve been slack online. For those of you who caught (or taped) Uncommon Threads (DIY Network) today at 10:30 am Eastern, I was on with Kim and Cecily.

Our episode was titled It’s My Party, and we made a spiral bauble garland (Cecily), wine bottle cozy (me), and crocheted flower pins (Kim). In the final segment, we displayed (but did not demonstrate) crocheted wine glass charms (me) (pattern here!), crocheted boxes (Cecily), and crocheted sushi (Kim).

This was one of several episodes we (a group of designers from Crochet me) taped last July in LA. It was quite an experience and a lot of fun to meet everyone and be there together.

Wine bottle cozy pics below! I thought I had some photos of Kim’s flowers to share, but I have to retake them (yes, I have in my possession two of the flowers that were actually on the show… very cool!). Reds and oranges are so difficult to photograph well!

    [...] Finally the eternal “Coming Soon” sign no longer graces my home page, my patterns and tutorials pages are back up, and my whole site has a brand spanking new theme. The impetus to finish was, as we like to say around the Tomato Ranch, a deadline with dire consequences. Well, maybe not dire, but still I didn’t want everybody out there in Teevee Land to see my messy mess of a site. I did the entire thing in a fit of inspiration (desperation?) starting at around 2 am this morning and finished in time to go to a friend’s house to watch the show at 10:30 am. [...]

    I saw the episode and really enjoyed it. I loved all the projects and plan on making the garland in white & silver for the tree at my yarn shop. We are decorating it with knit & crochet ornaments. It was serendipity that I was able to see Uncommon Threads that day…thanks for great projects.

    I was going through my taped episodes of Uncommon Threads last night and there you were! You did a great job. :)

    I’m glad to see the “Coming Soon” replaced with materials. :) Nice to see you back. :)

    A pal who was supposed to tape it for me messed it up so I haven’t seen it. If you know anyone with a copy pleeeeeeeease let me know.

    How did you feel about seeing yourself in teeveeland?
