Wow, spot on.  My kids love finding cat-faced orb weavers around our yard.

Love it, especially with the bold colors.

The soot sprites are also in My Neighbor Totoro (Tonari no Totoro).  Yours is adorable, WileE, and the kodama, too.  And I think even failed crafting counts.  Think of it as practice, like if you were learning an instrument.  Even concert pianists don't hit all the right notes the first couple times through a piece.

I agree with everyone else, this was a great craftalong.  (Though it made me realize how much I let slide around the house when I craft.)  It was fun finding little projects that I could do every day.  Thanks so much WileESongdog!

Here's my final picture dump.  I found one of those coloring pages online to print.  But it took me three days to finish! 


Then I added a tier to a skirt my daughter wanted from the thrift store.


28 was making overnight oatmeal for the first time.  It had mixed reviews from the family.  And I don't make pretty food, so no photo.

Finally, 29 was an attempt at mixed media.  You can't really see the tissue paper on there, and my white gelpen was dead.  But I think it's a keeper.  It reminded me of the fairy tale where the disguised fairy blesses the kind girl that gems and flowers will fall from her lips when she speaks.  Then the rude sister is cursed with snakes and toads instead.  So I added the gems and flowers.  (The single 'ruby' is for a previous verse.)


Thanks again WileESongdog!

Acadian, I like that your mugrugs are big enough for a snack, too.

Always, I understand the monotony of a granny afghan.  I made one long ago for my daughter, and baby-sized it still took a hundred hours!  Didn't help that they were hexagons instead of squares, so the joining wasn't straight.  Are you going to use fantasticmio's continuous join method?  It's brilliant!

Wulf, you are amazing!

My offerings are much more humble.  I think I'm losing steam.
19 and 20 are fancy friendship bracelets.  I was looking at the old craftster vs. pinterest craftalong, saw a lovely post by Smeddley, followed it through pinterest to this.  I didn't have any of the actual supplies, so just subbed what I had.



21 is another old family recipe:  Zucchini Pie from my Great Aunt Agnes.  Just think pumpkin pie with a different squash, and meringue.  I remember my Mom making it only once.  She thought it was a main-dish kind a food, what with the zucchini!



22 and 23 are more tiny totoro, no photo.

whatthepuck, I'd never had plum pudding before, either, much less made it.  It wasn't super-fantastic, but it was fun to use a family recipe.

WileESongdog, saving lives is so much better than any old 'thing.'  You're amazing!

Acadian, loving that mugrug block.

Always, I've been casting longing glances at those type of coloring books.  Show us more pages.

Thing 16, head start on shamrocks that I make for my kids every year.  Usually I give them a few so they can give them away.  Every year I have to re-remember how to cro-tat, since this is the only thing I do it on.


Thing 17, a hand drawn tutorial for the running stitch.  (BTW, I only barely know what I'm talking about.)  I'm mailing it to my son who is on his own for the first time, out of the country, and doesn't have access to the internet.


Thing 18, Jam Cake from my grandma's 1939 Household Searchlight Recipe Book.  I make dinner pretty much every night, but don't do dessert very often.  This turned out okay.  Tasted more like a quick bread than cake.  Not very sweet considering it uses 1 1/2 cups jam!

Hang in there dewshinesdopp.

Whatthepuck, I like the jump ring bracelet.  Care to share how you did it?

ActsofCraftiness, I think ripping out should count as a thing.  Sometimes it takes almost as long as the stitching.

Acadian's goldfinch photos and Wulf's watercolor are both skills I admire and appreciate.

For me, #14 was a plum pudding.  I used my husband's grandmother's recipe, and some of her bottled plums.  It was none too pretty, but tasted yummy.



#15 was adding beads and crystals to pieces that will be attached to a  ballet costume.  It's for the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.  Here's the bodice embellishment.  You might recognize the organza ribbon flowers from day 2.
