When you nurse a wee babe they nearly all have a terrible horrible no good very bad habit of tweaking the other nipple, don't ask me why ~ I only know that I HATED IT! So a nursing necklace is to distract them, give them something to hold onto and play with. Amazingly enough, a nursing babe is hardly ever a nice snuggly little bundle of warm docile lap baby, that's when they like to kick, wiggle, turn upside and do other acrobatics. It's maddening! So anything to help them stay still instead of attempting to run off to play with boobeh still clamped in their jaws, lol, is a helpful thing!
I'm sitting here with a sleeping baby on my shoulder, trying to catch up with the thread, and this just made me lol (but softly, so she didn't wake up). Luckily, my baby doesn't pinch, and is pretty calm when eating, unless the cat shows up. Then keeping bits attached is a bit of a struggle.

Thanks for this great idea.
I tried it last week, but with my own lasagna recipe. Turned out wonderful, everyone liked it Smiley

Well, it took a Craftster challenge in my favorite obsession to get me going. I finally completed a project this year, and even posted it to the challenge.
It's nothing really fancy, just a fun concept (click the image to see more):

I hope I'm not too late posting this.
I've had this idea floating in my head for a while, and when I saw this challenge I knew it was a good time to implement it. My craft of choice is beading, and I would have my "running with scissors" badge revoked if I didn't enter.
So here it is:
 
Basically, it's a set of components that can be worn in different combinations.
Here are just a few (the thumbnails are clickable)...
For example, the smaller washer and a string of beads for a simple necklace:

a string of beads looped around your arm for a fun bracelet:
 
more necklaces:
     
and even a belt:
(this picture was taken by my cat, or would have been if he agreed to help me. Since he didn't, this is the best I could do all by my self Smiley)
and the fun thing is, I can always create more pieces for even more combinations, and to match different moods and outfits Smiley

kwiltykate - great quilt, I love the pattern Smiley
Eclectic Dreamer - I think what most people do is update their lists when they complete something, but also make a new post with pictures and some info about the project, so that other people can see what they did. I believe most people don't go back to look at everyone's list to see if it's been updated. It's hard enough keeping track of the conversation in this thread anyway.

I have this thread open in it's own dedicated window, and take a look whenever I can, and still find it hard to keep up.
BlankGirl - that's a cute bow tie, looks very nice with your black and white pup.
kwiltykate - Awesome stuff. I love the little pink monster, the picture made me smile as soon as I saw it. And you sock monkey has such a cute face Smiley
tryskal - eep, 12 hour nights?
Kookaloo_Starr -  very nice sock you got there, you should definitely make it a partner.
noooitaremybirthday - I think you should count the robots, that painting makes me feel happy inside (and a bit teary, but that's probably just hormones) Smiley
mommasfrogging - a rocketship plushie is an awesome idea, I would have loved to have one as a kid, and the fabrics you used are so fun, it's great.

I got about one or two rows of a project done, at this rate it'll be 50 projects in a decade for me  Tongue
