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...

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

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!!!

I'm up to no. 20!  Baby shrug made last night while watching movies with the daughter Smiley

Needs a button, and it may or may not be too small for our baby when she gets here - pattern found on etsy.

Love the shrug...it's for an infant? How sweet!

Your garden is wonderful, deeder. I showed that photo to DH, and now he's wondering about how hard that would be to do this year, with him out of town so much...yay! (That means maybe NEXT year...!)

The wreath is lovely; never heard of a yarn wreath before! Is it for inside, or outside?

Anyway, I have had a busy day of schoolwork and guests and the like but hope to settle down after my supper guest leaves to do a few rounds on my crocheted market bag (did I mention that I am KEEPING this one?  For me?)

Rockon - what kind of market bag are you doing? Is it the Spring Market Bag by Carol Ventura in Interweave?  I LOVE that bag.  I should make one for myself.  I've made several for swaps and other people but don't have one that's mine.  hmmmmm.....  Cheesy 

Everyone is doing such great work.  I feel sooooooo slow because I have nothing new posted on here.  I think I have one project done that was for me so its entered in the April drawing.  I have more projects that I want to start for myself they just won't be done before the deadline.  *sigh*  Oh well.  I'll get there eventually.

Oooh; lots of pretties!  Grin

I got some stuff planted this week, 'though the bulk of my garden isn't in yet.  (Deeder, mine isn't nearly as pretty as yours!  I can't afford all the "filler" for a raised bed yet. Sad )

We have this horrible hill in our side yard that hubby has to risk life and limb to mow.  So I had him risk life and limb to till it, and I planted it with strawberries and periwinkle.  The hope is that this stuff will take over and serve as ground cover, and he won't have to mow it.

And I created some square-foot grids for my garden out of PVC pipe.  Again, I'm working in bits and pieces here due to finances, so I only have 3 of 4 squares. (I'll get one a little later in the summer.)  And only one has a grid, b/c hubby suggested an improvement to my original plan, and I only had enough hardware for one, so I'll have to go buy some more screw eyes to finish the other two.  But I put all of those together and planted my tomatoes.  (Seeds will, hopefully, get planted sometime this week.)  I actually did take pictures, but I haven't uploaded them yet.

I LOVE that picture of the kids decorating with chalk!

Love the infant shrug. Hmm, now I think I need to make a shrug for my little girl.

So many projects...I decided to take a little break from crafting and start outdoor cleaning and projects...a big push to finish taxes as well...

just a few mentions, although I looked at it all!

love the chalk garden (ha ha...not the book, the kids writing on the cinder blocks!)

cute little shrug

I have a yarn wreath made by batgirl and I love it!  Very nice

I think I also have a old paper necklace on my list...someday!  Yours turned out wonderful, QNM!
