laughing_lark--are you doing ok after your surgery?  I know that when I had my appendix out, it took over two months to fully heal...and sometimes I still think I feel some pain!

Anyway, get those projects done--you are so close!  I think for April, one of the themes is going to be WIPS!

I'm doing well most of the time, and then I get stopped in my tracks by knifing pain in my side. I take that as a warning that I need to slow down. Surgery was three weeks ago. I hate not having my house picked up, and I did more than I should today, so I'm having pain. I will just craft the rest of the day, Ian permitting, and keep the glasses that I wear for distance off, so I can't see the gathering dust bunny army.  Cheesy

WIPs are definitely clutter, and getting them done does constitute a form of spring cleaning.  Smiley

While trying to think of easy but nice treats, I stumbled across the tape-measure closure idea (cheaper than zippers for that many projects!)


Forgive me if this is a dumb question (not a lot of sleep last night). Tape-measure closure? What do you mean?

Finished another project last night, mainly due to pressure from the hubby to get it finished so he could bring it to work already! lol.

I'm feeling that most of you have the same problem I have, You finish one project but add two more to the list at the same time.  Smiley



#27. Onesies for hubby's co-worker who just had twins

I thought the patterns were perfectly suited for 2 twin little boys Smiley

Always, I did NOT know there was a thread about RAKs, and will now hunt it down for more ideas. I love your idea of parking lot surprises, too! Did you huddle in your car and peek at the responses? I would have been tempted. It's just fun thinking somebody got it and liked it and maybe had a little better day because of it, though, isn't it?!!

evilSabina,  here's the quote I stumbled on..."At club many of the gals have made bags and purses and use the dollar store metal measuring tapes to use for a snap closure and they work GREAT! This would take the place of buying a steel purse closure frame.
I haven't seen this tip posted and it is really a cool closure, your bag looks very professional and snap shut.
You buy a metal tape measure, cut to length (for each side) and round the ends, and then insert the tape measure into the casing. It is recommended to duck tape the ends to keep it from cutting your material." from here .

I tried it with a $2 tape measure from Dollar General and by doggies, it WORKS. It's as cute as a button and I figure I can get 12-13 out of that one tape measure. Lots cheaper than zips, and interesting, too. That's what's on the little flowered bag in the picture. Here's an inside shot:

LaughingLark, watch out for those dreaded adhesions forming in the first 2-4 weeks! Don't overdo, please, unless you LIKE crafting from a bed! Hope you're on your feet and painfree soon!

MissKerouac, those onesies are adorable. I might need a pair for my teens. Their sizes have changed, but they still love a good sibling row!!

Ok seriously guys, stop making awesome projects. My list is up to like 150 projects now (no...really...it is) Cheesy
Too bad I'm not a speedy crafter like Always! I'm sure she can get 150 projects done in a year! Dang. Now I'm really jealous.

OMG how cute are those Onesies!? I've been wanting to embroider some for my new nephew, maybe some MMA style? Those are adorable.

I really need to take pictures of the granny square messenger bag I am almost finished with and the doggie bed, but at least I am caught up with this month's list. Now to see if I can get started on my tshirt quilt. It requires DH's descisions of which tshirts he wants to retire, and the ones he'd throw a fit if I cut up. Hoping I can get some tshirt yarn out of it too! Yay, then my tshirt rug will come along nicely also! Have a great weekend all!

Quote
March:
1. Stuff & sew a new doggie bed.
2. Make my self new ergonomic wrist cushions for mouse & keyboard.

3. Plaster and decorate my own Mardi Gras masks. - Sadly I could not find my plaster strips. Sad
4. Bake ButterBeer cupcakes. And more Butter Beer.
