I made some t-shirt dresses I'd had the parts for sitting around for about 6-7 years.  I'm not very happy with them, but they're done.  (Of course, at the moment I don't have any daughters that fit into them!  That's the problem with leaving these things to sit for years.)


I made my first attempt at felting.  (Didn't come out quite as I'd envisioned; the stem is really floppy.  This is supposed to be a dandelion.  Oh, and the top still needs to be trimmed, but my scissors broke.)

And a few throw pillow covers for my living room.

I bet she loves it!  That's such a great little-girl skirt. Smiley

Everybody's being so productive, I must say. Love the shirt-cum-dress ideas, especially the one that got its start because the shirt had some spots. I have lots of those that could use a good upgrade, but too bad I always feel like a moose in a dress! Wink

Finally, finally, got something off my lists: some stuffed record bowls for teacher gifts and a fleece Alot. It's not a lot (ahem), but it's something!

2 of the 17 completed record bowls for teacher gifts, stuffed with teaching supplies and a personal thing or two. At first I struggled to get the bowls to look decent, but now I think I'm addicted, either to making them OR the PVC in the air.

I like grey alot...

First fleece plush, created from cut-out to glue-on-googly eyes during the couple hours it took to watch "The King's Speech." It'll do.

Long strange spring over here. Does "tying a knot to hang on to" count as a craft? Undecided

I have had a few crafty days and completed a few projects - I'm up to 28 projects this year!!

Ended up making
- 4 pairs of the cute baby trackies Tongue
- Bright cot quilt (not my usual style, but I think it looks great - based on a quilt found on etsy)
- 2 x fleece blankets

I like your alot, graced. I may need to make on of those.

I have tons of wips-- many in the garden, but we've had crazy rain here. Hail on Saturday snapped the top off of one of my tomato plants. Angry

Oh, Kwiltykate, I adore the quilt. I don't have any babies any more (give me 10 years and I might have some to borrow for a while!), but that's really sweet.

EvilSabina, thanks. It was easy, a real surprise since I'd never made a plushie. If you do make one, I wanna see. Watch out for those hailstones. (We have the Mighty Mississippi pushing the levees here. Weird spring.)

Well a whole lot has been going on in my life that has prevented crafting...I got back from FL after almost 6 weeks last month, thought I was going to have an opportunity to craft...then my bf of 2.5 years broke up with me which spiraled into something terrible...a few more endless things that wouldn't allow me to catch a break...BUT my niece was born yesterday, so things are looking up  Smiley  Hopefully I can get back to my list soon... I miss crafting. I have been keeping up on the boards though!
