No list from me -- I've got ideas in my head, but I usually go with the spirit when it hits.  (sorry for the poor quality of pictures this  morning; not sure what my little phone camera was up to.)

Finished three more hats for my knitting groups charity project.  I love the unpredictability of varigated yarn -- when the colors line up it makes you look much smarter than you are.

#3 Charity Hats


The scrappy hat looks better on.  Literally made with scraps, changing from knit to purl and back with each new yarn.


Finally cut mats and framed some pretty noted cards I've had kicking around for a while.  Took a while to find mats for three Indian pieces that coordinated with each other and the colors in the cards.  I couldn't find something that would pick up the colors in the other two prints until I noticed the giant roll of contractors paper, like thick kraft paper, that I wrap packages in.  Perfect!

#4 Framed pictures




And then, not exactly crafty, but I have finally organizaed my yarn and fabric, at least.
$5 over the door shoe organizer for *most* of my yarn stash that's not heading into a project:


A shelf in the same corner; bags hold a bazillion little balls of left over yarn, sample squares and other orts.  Folded fabric and stacks of supplies, and boxes with half finished projects.

Nice. I wish I could have shelves like that. I gotsta stick to bins I have to dig out of my closet. :/ Maybe I'll work on organizing my actual closet, so I can GET to those bins. Smiley Step 3 in my organization goal:: CLOSET! Smiley (Fabric, Yarn, Closet is the order, to those of you who don't know.)  Smiley

I just bought an amazing house this summer, and one of the most amazing features is a huge bedroom with a bank of four south-facing windows.  It's slowly becoming my craft room/library.  Look for more pictures of that room this year, as I replace the molding, patch the plaster, replace the doors, paint the walls...etc....

But it is a fabulous space!

(The bookshelves are great fold down things.  I now have 4 of them in the sitting room and three in the craft room and am on the hunt for more.  Forget whatt they cost, but they were reasonable.  And they stack nicely.)

Crafting FAIL!!!

I tried to do another shirt recon, and it was a disaster.  I hate it. LOL  It is going to be taken apart and changed completely.

I was originally inspired by this dress:


It's from http://mymamamadeit.blogspot.com/  Super cute right??


And I had this brown tee shirt, which, as you can see has a grease spot on the boob. Sad


So I think you can guess where this is going.....

And it turned into this:


I think it's kinda gross. I feel like a clown.  Or as my boyfriend pointed out, it might be something a 5 year old would wear.  One more just for funzies:



In conclusion:
Dress by Alexis Meschi, super cute
Shirt by Jill, cute...if you're in the circus. Sad

In addition to making a shirt I don't like, as I was just finishing it, I broke my sewing machine needle!!! WHOOPS!

So now until I buy a new one, I can't do any of my sewing projects!!!  Good thing I do more that just sew! lol

maybe if you tried to make it narrower and longer...plus, the model has no curves at all so I think the ruffles give them to her Wink

I agree with the narrow and longer, I think with yours being shorter it looks a bit bib like.

I hate it when crafts, especially clothes, don't come out like I want. I think out of all my recons I only have 1 or 2 that I've actually liked in the end.

I'd say knit or crochet some "lace". Alwaysinmyroom is right, she doesn't have any... But I didn't like her shirt to begin with. But if you wanted to continue with the idea, I would ruffle downward, because you're curvy, the circle ruffle doesn't do anything for you but look bulky on your bust.
Straight down ruffles  (WITHOUT the red, that's what's making it look "clownish") would look beautiful on you. like

More or less. That's what I plan on doing with a shirt I'm trying to mess with. Smiley I think you should try it.
