Wow you are all cranking out the crafty goodness! I'm still going and have some things to post as soon as I get a computer back (we had to tame ours apart to move it away from the backed up septic pump (YUCK!) because it sits directly infront of the hatch...hopefully we'll get it back up soon!
I did spend a good chunk of my morning at an amazing bead store! And! I already made something for me from my exploits this morning!

 Shocked Wow! Spring seems to really be energizing people -- Kudos!

I got two tiny -- but very useful (and therefore satisfying) -- things done.  Wink

One: I got the seeds for my garden started.  Not worth a picture, as egg cartons full of dirt are neither exciting nor aesthetically pleasing to look at.  But last year I never got my garden in at ALL, so....

Two: A wee glove holder to keep medical gloves at hand.  Too simple for it's own thread, but I love the fabric so much that I just have to share a photo here!    

It holds one pair of gloves.  Here it is attached to my watch (can't wear wrist watches when lifting students), which has developed into a sort of chatelaine -- watch, meds bottle, hand sanitizer, and gloves.


I gotta say, it really REALLY helps to get things done when you stick your sewing machine in the middle of the living room!  Grin

I've done that before. Turn on the tv for the kids and sew away while being able to keep an eye on everything. It works great.

And good for you on getting your garden going. Someday I'll have one. Maybe.

So I'm out of town house-sitting for some family right now and haven't been home in a week. My boyfriend calls me up today and says "you got a book in the mail...can I open it?"
I wasn't expecting a book so I said sure..Turns out it's "101 Crafts You Can Make at Home"!!!
From an amazing moderator I know...only problem is...he's now holding it for ransom. Actually I don't think he's going to give it back period. He teased me by flipping through the pages going "ohhhhhh....ahhhhhhhh" while on the phone.
Yup not only do I have a bf who deals with me crafting all the time...I have to fight him for the materials because he keeps stealing them!!
THANKS ALWAYS, I can't wait to steal it back use it!

Oh great!  I think it is funny and good that your boyfriend enjoys your crafting interests!  What a tease he is---you should have him make some of the goodies in there for you (I believe there was some homemade jam!)...

I did not expect you to get it until this week so YAY for the post office!
I am sure you can figure out a way to get it back... Grin

50. Reversible, double-knit hat for DH (knit)

Gonna be reversible; black tweed and kakai-green tweed.  Anyone know of a manly pattern, easy enough for a beginner at double knitting, but not dead plain?

Thanks everyone on the shawl. It was a blast to make. Sorry I can't get any pictures of the front for about a week, but if you want to see a few, take a look at the Ravelry link. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/soar The great thing about this shawl is the many, many ways you can wear the front.

 Oh Graced, I love the I Spy Monster!

Great quilt kwiltykate. I love the print.

sheepBlue, that shawl looks warm and toasty.

*gasp!* calixita, the bracelet is fantastic!

QueenNinjaMonkey, that necklace is very inventive.

PimpernelSmith, love the chatelaine idea.

Very springy colors mmccorbin.

I didn't make anything this week -- still working on spring cleaning in the craft room, but that got pushed aside for regular house cleaning and gardening. But I did get some sidewalk chalk and had the neighborhood kids come over and do some decorating on the garden walls. It's not a great pic, but there will be more as the summer progresses, I'm sure (especially since it's supposed to rain tomorrow). It's not pictured, but there are a couple blocks that say "Love Garden." I love it!



I also love the book page necklace. I might have to add that to the list...

I like the way you think!! I suggested it and found the book on my doorstep a few hours later! (a cute man may or may not have accompanied it)! thanks again!!
Deeder, your garden looks so great I'm so jealous!!!
