Everything looks great!!  I've managed to get up to 35 projects so far this year!  I'm 5 freakin hexagons away from a Hexagon afghan!  That'll make 36. 

Random question.... I have 3 storage boxes of paper crafting supplies....  I'm not doing as much paper crafting.  I'm finding that I crochet, knit, embroider, play with polymer clay and sometimes make jewelry....  I'm not sure I want to give up everything but I need to clean out.  I need one of those boxes to start housing my poly clay stuff!!!  lol  If anyone is interested in a random smattering of paper crafting supplies let me know!  Smiley

Two more projects done!
A hat for Miss Five's Tuesday teacher, because it was her birthday yesterday:

(I really like that pattern!)

and another hat to add to my charity pile that I whipped up this morning and in the car. We were going to donate them on the way home, but DP was too tired and forgot to take the long way home, so when I get paid again tomorrow or Tuesday I will take Master Three to Melbourne on the train and do it. He'll like that - he's never been on a train before.


That's me at 61!

No, wait, 62! I just forgot - I made my best friend's wife a scarf like the one I made for the Random Swap because while I was making the swap one, I kept thinking how much my friend's wife would like it, so I made her one too. It was a perfect use for a nice chunky soft American yarn  Wink

Love all the really cool charity things on here, and feel super duper guilty for neglecting my 50+ I have gotten a ton done and most is swap related but I just can't seem to find my lists. I also love that we are up to 500 pages and w/ meleriffic's & I's posts we are passed 5001 posts!  Cool KEWL!

I made my friend a little nurse, because when he started at his new job his desk seemed too empty. He used to be a nurse, and he works at an employment agency getting placements for nurses, so when I saw this on Ravelry I had to make it for him. Mind you, it has been in my queue over a year now, but he's finally going to get it. lol

It seems like Im in the middle of a lot of big projects and crunch time at work so I had to sit down this weekend and play a little.  Heres what Ive got:
44. Chloes scratching plank
My girl cats loves to sharpen her claws, but the posts on her cat condo are really too short for her to get in a good stretch.  So I made her a scratching plank that she can really go to town on.

I put ties on the ends so that, if her condo ever gives out, we can tie it onto a doorknob.

And I put ties on both ends so we can rotate it and flip it over as she wears out the sisal.  A simple thing, but it makes her happy!

45. Copper plant tags[
Ive coveted these for years, but they are too expensive and not specific enough.  But last night I sat down with a $6 pack of 40 gauge squares and made labels for all my hostas and some of the other special plants I have in my garden.  (Sorry for the quality of the photo; shooting highly reflective copper at night in a dim room is tough!)

I folded the tags in half for a little more stability, punched a hole in each tag, and suspended them from stakes cut from dark coat hangers.  I made about 18 from the package I had and the hangers I had on hand.

My nurse friend also just moved house, so as a housewarming gift, I made him an anti-zombie fortification:

Its a pea shooter from the highly addictive webgame Plants VS Zombies. He should be safe for a while.

And not a project in itself, but here is the pile of hats I donated today.

(Although taking three kids under the age of 8 on an hour long train ride and then multiple trains and trams in the city in 86F degree heat should be a project by itself lol)
You can't really see it, but the batman one is laying on the purple pillow.
