My personal projects are on hold until I finish my personal swaps...2 1/2 swaps to complete, one of them a large one.  I have the one for bananaleg for the dress I just finished and one for kbauer for a rainbow button cuff on my 50 list, the large one I don't as it's actually a carry-over from last year Tongue  Yeah, I'm WAAAYYY overdue on completing that one!  LOL!  Hopefully will be back on the 50 bandwagon soon!

Finished one of the longer-running projects on my list- a locker hooked rug made from scraps!


That puts me up to 8/50, but progress is progress, right?  And this project made me realize I have a TON of scraps, so maybe a few more projects using them will be coming soon...

It's my anniversary next month too. 6 years for us.

I hadn't actually thought about making something for it though. Which is weird because I usually go all out and overboard with any little excuse to make him things. Hmm. I think it may have to do with we'll probably (if all goes well) be in some stage of moving then.

My anniversary is in June too - married 4 years.

I actually some some really cute marvel cross stitch I'd like to frame or put on the front of a sketch book for him, but I don't think I'll have time - may is pretty busy for us with the end of the school year, graduations, etc.

Beautiful stuff, everyone. 
Meleriffic, I especially love those tatted pendents!  Really gorgeous!

Does anyone here know how to do finger tatting (no needles involved)?  An elderly relative used to do it and made some lovely things but she was never able to sit down and teach me. 

I'm trying to finish up my Mother's Day gifts.  Hopefully I'll get pics and get them in the mail in time!

Haven't had time to do anything since I started taking care of my youngest sisters kids. It's literally a 11 hour job and even when I find time to do something in between diapers, bottles and Disney movie marathons, it's not for my self. Got some swap items done by the end of April, and I barely touched my April list, with the exception of some earings and a bracelet from #5, so I will just copy paste it and try and get those out of the way and then add if I can by mid month. Here is May(April) Mini List:
Here is my April Mini List:
1. Create a bird house out of a gourd.
2. Colorful bunting for my nieces. (2)
3. Learn to weave my own hammock.  Undecided (depending on supplies)
4. Finish my tile mosaic.
5. To try something I haven't done before with earrings, bracelets & necklaces.

I made a crocheted bracelet with red seed beads but couldn't get a decent shot, and I made some grape earrings using some purple cracked glass beads.
Will edit w/ pic later since my picture is too big to dload at this moment. Sad
I really hope I can keep on track with my 50 as I help my sister out with my nephew & niece. I'd die if I couldn't craft!

Finished the dice bag.

I also made a Mother's Day present to post to my mother on holidays - five fridge magnets made from scrabble tiles. (My mother is a huge Scrabble fan)

Great detail work on the dice bag, SilverMoon!  Way cool... Cool

And I really love the Scrabble tiles for Mother's Day...I've gotta get my things out to Mom, too...
I'm going to keep an eye out for thrift/garage sale Scrabble games and make some of these for my
GD to use on an old baking pan(maybe painted/decorated??)...we can use it when she is here to learn letters and words...=]
