In the last eight days, I've finished some swap crafts, (which you can scope out at my ravelry page if you aren't my partner Tongue) and not a lot much of anything else. I just spent half an hour catching up on ten pages of this thread, because somewhere along the line I didn't click an email, so I've had no notifications for that whole time. And it did not dramatically improve the amount of crafting/anything else I got done, so I'm going to stop blaming Craftster for having no time.

I still have so many things on my April mini list that aren't for me, that I think I will make myself some easy peanut butter fudge. Right now. (So I can eat the lion's share before the kids wake up in the morning)

Everyone's things from the last ten pages look fabulous. Especially Sheep's TM bag - where do you get all those whimsies? I'd join a swap to get some, but I don't have any to swap in the first place!

Aww thanks! To be honest I've been hoarding for a long time and am finally making my self put some of those awesome kickass whimsies to use.

Fudgy Buttons are in the fridge setting! I feel it was far too easy to be marking as one of my 50 projects, but it was for me, so I hope it still counts for the April challenge? I am starting to get all panicked up at where the month has gone - I have so much to do before May still! Less typing, more crafting now. I'll try to post photos of my fudge when it has set, if I remember before I eat it all. It only made 32 30 pieces after all!  Cheesy

I love market bags like that! I have a giant one that comes in really handy with awkward large packages when I go to the PO. Great job!

Got another two things off my list.

34. attempt sewing something with a pattern Fin 4/14

This is a pattern I drafted myself for my fiber class based off the shape of a guitar. It's not perfect but that's kinda my style lol. Embracing the imperfections as design details.



35. make another hoop (bigger size) for my hoopla wall Fin 4/14

And I finally finished mounting one of my favorite embroidery samples into one of my larger hoops.



There will definitely be more to come in the future. I have a couple of personal swaps in the works so I'll be waiting for my partners to receive their stuff.

That guitar rocks!  (No pun intended. Smiley )

I finished the Passover dresses!  (Finally.  That last one was determined to kick my butt.  After losing the thread, I had to rip a button hole out twice, finally sewing it manually - which looks crappy, but, hey, it's done - the bobbin thread ran out three times at the most inconvenient places, and I broke a sewing machine needle.   Roll Eyes  No apparent reason; the needle just broke.  I am so glad to have that blasted dress done! lol)

Love the guitar!

Thanks, SilverMoon for the link to Fudgy Buttons. I think they are begging to be included in next week's teacher appreciation boxes! (And my tummy.) Yum!

Finished the first of three little baby gifts, this one destined to be the bow on top of the package:

With needle-punched (hopefully tactile) initial on the back:


(Think I'll make the next one with shorter loops and more of them.)

Wow!  That guitar is really great!!  and I need one of those market bags!  Love the color.  But I don't want to add anything to my list just now.   Wink
I've been trying to work on my graduation present bracelets and I seem to have lost the beads I need.  I swore I had the perfect color in my stash but can't find it now.  Which means I have to go to store and hope they have the right shade of blue.  Blehhh!

That's a great needle roll--those are great colors!, and I adore the little hairbow organizer. (Ours were always just jumbled in a drawer!)

I just realized that the notification in outlook that I've been "snoozing" for the last two weeks includes this: "Put up entire mini-list for April in 50/2011."

Ooops.

Without delay, then, and without much time left in the month to actually accomplish it:

mend photo tent
i-spy for nephew
baby taggy/plush for Hudson (the one I made yesterday was for Julia, so it doesn't count)
quilted dish mat
12 wine/beer markers before Friday 4/22
teacher appreciation gifts for At LEAST the kids' favorite teachers (4)
double glasses case for myself for the two strengths of reading glasses I need (one to read, one to embroider!)
