A2...those envelopes are very inspiring! When we went through Dave Ramsey a couple of years ago, we just used boring old white envelopes!

The shawl is lovely and delicate, and perfect for spring!

I finally finished something, an i-spy monster. I feel like I finished four things though, because I also made a picture find-it card, a word list of things to find, and guided-play questions. The last three are included because the learning curve was the steepest...took forever to get those photos of bitty things cleaned up in Paint (which I'd never really used before).


Can you spy the little monster hidden inside his name?

Started this quilt 6pm Friday, finished hand sewing the binding 12pm Saturday, just in time for the birthday party! I would seriously never get anything done if it wasnt for last minute Wink

Here is the quilt I made for my nephew Aidan's first birthday!



I am going to have to find something else to make him for Christmas, Im loving that awesome monster 'i-spy bag' !!!

I love the fabric used in the quilt!

And the shape of the I-Spy bag is so clever.

KwiltyKate, your quilt is precious! I really like the fabric you chose, too.

Melerific: look here for other ideas on shapes for i-spy bags. They're AMAZING, and that's what got me started brainstorming for shapes. I can't imagine having to produce these things in quanities to sell...this one 'bout wore me OUT!

Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

Got another item done  Smiley

32. thank you shawl for G/N swap Fin 4/9

My partner received today so I can finally post it. This was my first time making a shawl and I'm really happy with how it came out! I used up almost 3 whole skeins of yarn for it.






Also in other news, I have vague plans to open my own shop next year so I thought when I'm bored I should start making stock for it. The biggest feature will be my TM bags which will be time consuming, but the way I see it, I have a year to get stuff done  Smiley It'll hopefully keep me distracted from swapping too much too lol. My goal at this point is to get more crafting done for me/my family/future shop than swaps...and at this point it may be evenly matched.

Oooo and I-Spy Bag. I plan on making one for my niece(though she is still not born. Due in a couple weeks though). I have so many whimsies from collecting and swaps that I could use in it...Or maybe I will focus on my 50 list and just swap for one...oh the decisions.

Here in Craftland, ME I am starting to try to make the "Baby Got Booties" from the March/April issue of Knitting Today! and i ran into a couple of issues that I am going to try to figure out. Has anyone tried these yet? The back panel of the baby hoodie I am making is now complete. Thank goodness I finally have something done on that thing. Giving the Cake Pop cake/frosting combo another try today. Hopefully with success.

That quilt is awesome! I can't believe how fast you got it done!
I do have a goal to try quilting this year...I bought all the supplies in January....haven't started yet though. Partly because I use a kids plastic sewing machine.  Cheesy (Hey, for the little sewing I actually do...this generally gets the job done!)

ARRRGGGGGGGH!  did you ever have a project where every choice you make takes it further and further down the wrong path?  Too late to turn back.  Too close not to finish.  Too ugh to believe.  Ugh. 

Thanks for letting me vent.  Now back to your regularly scheduled admiration of all the crafty goodness going on on this site.  For example, that gorgeous grey shawl or the adorable baby quilt.  They are both fantastic.

Now that the tricky part is done, the Mr likes it and he usually tells me if I've dorked it up too much.  It really is more a case of not looking like what I see in my head.  I'll post it eventually when I get the rest of it done.  That is just a matter of sewing along the lines (in a way that CAN be ripped out).  Thanks for the encouragement.
