My list of May accomplishments:

1. Subway art 

2. Dry erase frame

3. Ruffle pjs

4. Shelf decor

5. Grocery bags (cats and cows)

6. Reusable face pads

7. Lip Scrub 

8. Plarn bag (this for me was a big project, making plarn is like a project in itself, and then crocheting the bag is like another!) 

9. Rag Doll

10. Cake with fondant

11. Inchies (first time) These were for a swap and are currently in mail-land. In total I made over 100!

So that's 11 projects, and one that counts as a big one, for a total of 12 (divided by 2) = six entries!!! Yay!

I did this small broomstick lace blanket that I will give to my granddaughter for her babies, not sure if I will do more or not hum.. I dont like taking the yarn off of my hook to do it, it goes slow
17.Learn and make something with broomstick lace crochet


33. Fixed timing on embroidery machine


I saw this on someones blog, so I had to do it for Laurens puzzles, it is felt hot glued to the backs of the puzzel board so when they go in the toybox the pieces don't get lost, she loves taking the pieces out and putting them back in as much as she likes doing the puzzle.
34. 4 puzzle pockets


My other DIL is having a baby in Septemeber and we were looking for baskets for the dresser and didnt find any we liked so I told he I would crochet some, this is my first attempt at crocheting baskets.
35,36. 2 Crocheted baskets for baby girl room

PJ, your crocheted baskets came out really good.  I always think I want to try that, but I haven't yet.

I love the crocheted baskets, I saw a free pattern at Hobby Lobby and picked it up.

So here's my googly eye project. I still have a pretty good stash of them left so I might make another monster girl.

The eyelash yarn was in my stash, I have a lot of random type of yarn from different supply swaps, purple fabric from stash with a posable tail (pipe cleaner). Not 100% happy with her, I think I might give her some super long legs.

So many lovely things, as usual. I couldn't even pick two favourites, there were so many! I love the purple slouchy socks, by the way. And they totally look like mine do after a couple of hours, because one always gets turned around during the night (I get cold feet).

I didn't do much crafting in May, just more jewelry (as usual):


And I made a pouch for a friend (from my List, even!) - sadly, I can only show you a picture of its older brother. She saw my cosmetics pouch (which was made by me, but before May) and requested one in the same fabrics and a bit wider. So that's what I did (and this time I even kind of followed a tutorial: http://www.skiptomylou.org/2009/01/14/how-to-make-a-lined-zipper-pouch-tutorial/).
purple corduroy with creamy stripes as lining. Hers is about 4cm wider.

I had to make the wooden (Root? It was called Wurzelholz and I love the grain!) necklace with the turquoise beads - they were supposed to be some kind of tone, but they might just be some kind of clay. Doesn't matter, as I bought them especially for this. Which totally explains why I now prefer the plain one...
 
They were a pain to string, though, because I used a kind of soft elastic and the holes in the wooden beads were not very clean. I had to keep getting woodpips out of every other bead. Only when I did the last necklace with the large beads only it occured to me to just get a large needle and ignore the pips... That would have saved lots of time right from the beginning.

The two white sets were inspired by/copied from this window - a very lovely little shop in Bremen called Perlenkontor.
The necklace I made for myself is slightly up and to the right from the figurine in the middle.
 

The orange thingies (earrings) look like this right now - but they aren't a "project". I just got these hooks (and the orange beads and exactly two green rondels - footie colours again) and it took about 15 seconds to combine them.
It just took so long to upload the pictures tonight so I wanted to include them (plus I really like them).
I was going to switch beads according to what I'd be wearing originally, but knowing me I'd lose the rondels. So it is really a good thing I got more of those hooks. Right? Maybe I should have joined the Destash-Along, as well. I have so much stuff for nearly all the projects on my list, but I just keep buying beads!

On that note: On Saturday I'll go visit a very small Danish island with one very small town (mostly) for two weeks, and I know three shops there with fabrics, beads, cross-stitch books and other lovely stuff... Can't wait!

Omg--such wonderful projects!  I love the crochet bowls and have them on my list!

I also think the dirt bike cake is very clever and looks so yummy!

Love the owl purse...

Couple of things...I do think that the number beds and size of your garden should count as 2 tickets, Pinokeeo...

I will also count projects that you had on your list to complete but that you can't post pics yet because of swaps!

I will be spending tomorrow updating my list and then posting a preliminary...I will give everyone a day or two to make any corrections and then do the drawing!

You guys really rocked a difficult month (May is spring fever month and it is hard to get me to craft!)  But now it is getting hot and I plan on staying inside to craft...

OK--let's get our mini lists prepared for June and craft toward the goal of 50!!!

Ok, my list for June is going to be stuff that takes up a lot less energy.  My grandbabies will be here next Sunday and will be staying for six weeks.  I'm going to play with them.

Anyway, here's my potential list.

Make bulletin board for office
Make a book safe
Fix my partner's walking stick
Learn new origami
Make a bowling ball gazing ball
Make a cat tower
Do some quilling for cards
Rebuild old rocking chair
Learn to make felt food for grandbabies
Make another pine needle basket

If I get half of this done, I'll be happy.

One more to make my total for May 4

This is a shirred sun dress for our pregnant babysitter.  I was originally going to buy pre-shirred fabric, easy peasy, I wouldn't have even counted it here.  Well... Joanns had sorta ugly or child choices, so I bought some pretty fabric and elastic thread.  The first 3 rows went swimmingly...t hen I had to reload the bobbin, and I couldn't get it right after that.  eventually I ripped it all out, bought thicker elastic, lining fabric and sewed channels.  This took... hrs, but I think it turned out nice.

45. Sundress for babysitter 5/31/2010
