Today I learned something only a new craftster would have to learn..... finish your projects quickly because everyday you discover a new craft you want to do....... i see that finding 50 thngs won't be hard afterall.

UGH and yay all at the same time.

Flutterby...oh, yes. It's killing me. My list is so long I'll have to live till I'm 101 to manage them all...YAY!

5/6 pops...that other one will wake you up if the storm doesn't, Troublet. Always keeps me awake, fretting!

Mini-list for April, now that the work is (temporarily) done
--repair foldable light box for photos, then make something to take a picture of inside it (for me, for the challenge)
--stupid i-spy bags from last month--one monster, one giraffe
--some beer bottle/wine glass markers for movie night with the Almost Dirty Dozen at our house (also for me; I hate pouring out unclaimed drinks...such a waste)
--teacher appreciation gifts
--43-year-old friend and mom of twin TEEN boys needs a BABY girl gift. (Can I make it say "Sweet Surprise?!) (Or, alternately, "Better you than me?!"  Grin) Thinking KwiltyKate's changing pad, for starters.

Yay, crafting! (Happy place, happy place...!) Grin

I have discovered one problem with my design...If the wallet tips, the tea falls out!
I suggest making the pockets a little smaller to make the tea fit in more snug. I would do this by sewing a vertical line on both sides of the center line(distance depending on how snug you need the pockets to be. It will make the wallet fold more square as well. If you don't like the center line you could always take it out leaving the two outer lines...did that make sense? If not I can draw it out.

Makes sense!  I'm thinking that perhaps I should 'top stitch' complete rectangles on each cover to make it look decorative, while simultaneously snugging the pockets on both inner and outer edges.... The only other thing I can think of is to slit the bottoms of the pockets to make them deeper, but then I have to stay-fray all those edges without glueing things all together.....?

I have, perhaps, a silly question- but what exactly is a cat blanket?  Is it like a cat bed?

Ooooo!  My 3 legged wonder kitty would love one of those cat blankets!  I may have to try to make him one, especially before next winter.  Since I can't sew for beans, I might actually have some success with that project!  Love the alien design!

Spring cleaning my craft room may be the only thing that happens in there this week. It's so disorganized and cluttered that it actually de-motivates me from making anything because I know I'll have to search and search and then clear a space to do to the work. Well, if I finished any of my WIPs, I'd probably have tons of room... I really have to find a place to stow away a giant dollhouse that I'm not going to work on for at least a year.

Also, I need to whip up some baby-related presents before I head up to Tennessee to see my family and best friend, who is due to have a baby at about the same time as me. How exciting! That's happened to me twice now -- both my college roommates have had children within two weeks of me having mine ... no planning involved!

Well, my FQ swap package is finished, except for the smallest scraps.  So hopefully I really will get some UFO's done this week.  Except I feel like I didn't get anything done yesterday, so I might have to emphasize housework.  Tongue (Darn phone kept ringing.)

Alright, I'm getting back in the swing of craftiness. Life had to go and get in the way, darn it! lol

Here are some projects I've done since I've been MIA.

Made a bunch of these to try to sell at a craftfair with my sister-in-law. Didn't sell one so guess what a lot of people are getting for gifts this year! lol


Made these when I was getting sick of seed beads from the bangles. I made a bunch more but the niece scoffed them before I could take pictures.


Not sure what I'm doing with this yet. Pattern is UrbanThreads.


This is a bag and bookmark I made for a girl at work that just retired. I made the bag awhile ago but I just made the bookmark.



Back of bookmark:


Made a couple of fabric roses out of scrap last night. Not sure what I'm doing with them yet.


Edit: And my poor black and gray dress I was going to rework got accidentally cut up by my niece! I had the top and bottom taken apart and in my fabric pile. While I was at a concert she asked if anything in the pile was fair game to make scarfs, etc. I said yes, forgetting the dress was in there...the skirt is now an asymmetrical mini with two loop scarves...BLARGH! I'm thinking I may be able to save it with some black rickrack or lace over where I'm going to try to sew it back together. Thank goodness it was only a $5 Salvation Army find!
