Got a few more things done.

11.Make my sister's bday present (this one is a little late, our bday was last month but since she has a 9month old and I've been super busy we made thanksgiving the exchange date, and I'm done, just in time for Sunday!) It's just a wooden "cigar box" painted with a Sailor Jerry tattoo on it and then inside I lined it with a stiff dark brown felt.




19.Cross-stitchable iphone case!
I saw it and I had to have it! Was a little tougher to cross stitch than I anticipated, but I love it, I'm thinking the thread might get dirty in a few months but the plastic is pretty sturdy and I'm sure could survive having the stitching taken out and restitched, which means....NEW DESIGNS ALL THE TIME!! This time I used Etsy's Flamgirlant's pattern.

Been working on a blanket so I haven't had much to post but I did make this little sweater while camping. It was my first time using the pattern and it was very easy.

13  ...and it all started with a big bang... in Needlework: Completed Projects by MissKerouac on: July 17, 2011 08:12:26 AM
I am part of the "50 in 2011" craft challenge and this was one of my projects, a wedding gift for a co-worker

I'm glad I finished it because I still have to stretch it and put it in a frame. I like to mix hand made gifts and purchased gifts for certain people who I know will appreciate and love a crafted gift. A co-worker/friend of mine is 20, she is getting married August 06 and her and her bf are both Christian and so this is also the first time they will be living together (and away from their parents). I know that they both love the show "The Big Bang Theory" so I thought I'd make something for their first home together.

I also have to snicker at the dirty dirty pun of "it all started with a big bang" for their wedding present lol

The pattern is from Weelittlestitches on etsy. The patterns are hillarious and awesome.

WOW that growth chart is beautiful!!

I finished a little project today
Wasn't hard, it was more finding the motivation to go get the stuff and hall it up to our condo


12.Make a little herb garden for our deck (I dont know if that's really "crafty")

now I just need my dad to make me a little corner table for our deck so they don't have to be on the ground.
I put the Rosemary in a pot all on it's own as it was a much bigger plant to start out with.
I also want to make some cute labels but I haven't decided what kind to make yet

16  Getting Better! Monkey and Gnome hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by MissKerouac on: June 20, 2011 06:47:02 PM
I recently started learning how to crochet things other than granny squares and scarves. I have a co-worker who is pregnant and her baby shower is this friday, she knew I was going to be making her some stuff because it is common knowledge at my work that I craft ALOT and people can generally expect hand crafted gifts for special occasions.

She knew I'd be embroidering her some onesies because she specifically asked as she had seen the ones I had done for my sister lol (I ended up doing 3 for her)

But I thought I'd make her some hats too. So I thought "this is as good of a time if any to try some patterns"
I ended up making her these two as well as a simple newborn cap in white




I'm very happy with how they turned out and I'm pretty confident that she'll like them as well  Smiley

Got the baby hat done mentioned above. LOVE IT
I ended up making her 3 onesies and 3 crocheted hats. I put the tissue paper in the hats and ended up just putting them in the gift bag that way, so much easier to visualize what they will look like on the little babe.

So I've had 2 weeks off for "vacation" in which I just stayed home cleaned and crafted with a short 3 day trip for a memorial golf tournament. I got quite a few things accomplished and a few other things started.

Here are my completed things

PICTURE OBESE SORRY...i'm excited though

#2.Embroider onesies for a co-worker who is pregnant.





#43.Crochet gnome hat for same co-worker



#40.Craft for the greater good.
started crocheting newborn hats for the local hospital.




#13.Make a terrarium
-Ok so this one didn't go exactly how I planned, i wanted to do a cute little one with moss and what not but then where I was going to put it, I just didn't know how it would look so this is what I came up with instead. I got the cacti when I was at IKEA, he looked sad, I'm going to try to nurse him back to health lol


#15.Paint the guest bathroom how I want it to look (no if, ands or buts from the DH) Smiley

19  Simple Bathroom Makeover (lots o' pics) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by MissKerouac on: June 18, 2011 02:42:53 PM
We moved into our condo in September

Everything was painted muted grey.
Everything.
Even the carpet and flooring is grey.
Like a mental institution.

So I decided I couldn't stand it any longer and started on the guest bathroom (or my bathroom as DH calls it, he has the ensuite)

Here is the before pics



And here is the after.







I decided to put big acrylic knobs on because not only do I like them (so girly and glam) but it tied in the faucet a bit better (I was on a tight budget and replacing the faucet wasn't an option)

The wrapping paper in the frames I LOVE! 3.95 for a big sheet that I used for the 2 frames and in the cup that holds my make up brushes (99cents for the glass yay!) the bath mat, towels, towel rack, and glass bottles were all from IKEA (so relatively cheap), frames from Michaels (7.99 on sale, then an extra 25% off that) and my dad does renovations so he supplied me with the paint for free Smiley

All in all, I LOVE IT

 Cheesy

I'm SOOOOOOO happy this is done!!! It's for my dad for fathers day and I was worried it wouldn't be done. It's made of 64 squares then double crocheted around the outside and finally single crocheted around the outside.

The picture is of it laid out on our King Size bed. Yes, it's very large!
