lovely items!  how do you do it with a new baby!!!

I loved the pink and black skully set you made in the March Birthday Swap---so nicely done!

She's the easy one!  If she's not nursing or getting her diaper changed, she's sleeping. lol  Actually, the crocheted items and the bookmarks were good in-bed projects.  You should see my unfinished projects pile!

March has been decidedly unproductive for me. I went on vacation and took nothing with me, so of course I got nothing done. Came home only too get sick, so still nothing done, and when I get better I should probably work on cleaning. Ugh. Cleaning.

I have a poppet in the works that I started before we left. Hopefully, I'll be able to at least get that finished before the month is over.

So I just looked back at the March challenge requirements....  I'm slow - what can I say?  If I can get my brand-spanking-new spindle out with the roving I bought today and kinda figure out how to spin, then I could post it for March's challenge.... 

Seriously - I think I'm just slow.  And now I feel even SLOWER because always has already finished her 50 projects!  *sigh*  I'm going to go look at my list again and see if I can finish something OOOORRRRRR  add some easy projects I can get done quickly.  Cheesy  Is that kind of like cheating?

No! That's (almost) instant gratification! And everyone needs some of that sometimes!
If I get in a crafting slump it's nice to be able to pick up a little quick project and get those creative juices going again

Great crafts everyone, and grats on 50 alwaysinmyroom!

I've been wanting to try this for a while and decided to use an old pair of underwear for a pattern. I used a tshirt that I got at a computer game convention that I wasn't that fond of, but thought would make an interesting pair of panties. They are about a size 6 or 7 boy shorts. Being my first pair, I think I will do this again but try different types of undies. Sorry for the blurriness. Does that count as something new? Or does it have to be a crafting medium?


I also made a ton more jewelery for swaps and since one of my partners has received I will post. The other has yet to get her package in New Zealand.... But no harm in a sneak peak. Included are earrings, and loaded charm bracelet.
Here is the Molly Weasley Charm Bracelet post.

I also made some monster Sanrio character pins from polymer clay & I made some skull perler bead barrettes. So much fun making these. I will be making at least 2 more pair for each of my nieces. The poly monsters are My Melody- Zombie eating brains, HelloKitty- Frankenkitty, Kuromi- devil/demon.

There will be dry periods of no crafting for me in the summer months...everyone works at their own speed--plus, I do quick projects, so maybe I am cheating all the time! Cheesy

I will be working on my quilts and large sewing projects in April...those will take a few months to finish...

Stuff that I did not post from my finished list.  Two knit scarves trying out different knit stitches...I am about done with knitting now that it is getting warmer...

Thank you!  They are two different knit stitches that are in the "lace" family--which is scary because you have to drop stitches! Cheesy

The first scarf is Bernat Mosaic acrylic and the second is hand spun and dyed wool...it is a joy to work with but a bit itchy against the skin...

I have a few completed items that fit the March challenge!

For my daughter, a toddler backpack, following vegbee's tutorial here: http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2009/10/toddler-backpack-pattern.html

here's mine, and it was a birthday present:



and I made her a skirt from an old t-shirt the other day, since she only wants to wear skirts and dresses and she doesn't have many...yet (adding more to my 50 list):


And for her birthday party, 2 re-usable buntings to decorate (springy, and for kids big and small to enjoy):


Yay for a few more things off my list!

Love the colorful bunting!

ooo--I almost missed the undies!  I think trying anything new qualifies!

How do attach things to those hair clips?  I bought a package and can't figure it out--just stitch them on?
