WHY do people cover up such gorgeous wood floors?!

WARNING I have a lot to post because I haven't been able to post while I've been moving

So here goes.

34. Crochet owl hat completed - 28/3/11
Bought the pattern & followed it exactly. Right yarn & hook size was supposed to be 6-12 months size but only fits a prem. Also tried the 2-4 years size (with bigger hook & bigger yarn) & that doesn't fit a newborn. So giving up on it even though it's cute.

35. Dry erase board - 3/4/11
Made with fabric in an old picture frame

36 Aprons x 2 15/4/11
Made as extras for the Baby Onesie swap round 6

43. Hoop for ongoing hoop swap (for edie 22) - 11/5/11

Congrats skittlebub!!  You made your 50!  and what nice things!  The t-shirts are cool and I love the fabric for the tea wallets! Love the idea of a memory square...such a sad thing to lose a baby...what a lovely idea to remember with a quilt square!

Wow Skittlebub, that's a lot of work. I love the VW Bug hoopla.

Bowzers - there's some amazing things going on here!!

That memory quilt is such a lovely idea - I think you may have given me an extra special project to add to my list, Skittlebub, do you mind if I borrow?

Well, I have no pics at the mo - my lappatoppa is poorly, so I've snuck on at work to catch up and update (what can I say, it's an addiction, lol!)

Sooo, complete:
30) Lozzie ozzie stamp - as complete as it can be, I've learnt my craftiness does not stretch to stamp making - I've made the star shape of my logo, think I may pay for one to be made from Etsy :/

40 - Starghan complete - just needs washing and loading full of fabric softener

41) Clear, remodel and prettify front garden. It was a total jungle when we moved in, no flower beds, or anything resembling nice, so we have completely gutted it, now just waiting for the flowers to grow!

42) Strip, prep, sand and paint the entire house (BOOOOOOORING!!) I'm only counting this as the one project, as it was very boring plain colours, but the craft room/studio/bedroom will be a project all on it's very own - as it's looking super cool, nearly there!!!

43) Run a crochet class - not on my original list, but it was Adult Learners week, and work decided to do something, so I got roped in. We only made little simple flowers, but I figure the stress, nerves and panic allow me to count it as a project, lol!
Plus - sharing the crochet bug - gotta be a good thing, hey??

Will post pics when I can use my lovely 'pooter.

I'm up to 15/50 now, and my craft room is nearly done now, so should be able to up the ante, as I've NEVER had a space like this before!!  Woohoo!!

Better get back to work, *sigh*

cya soon guys!

How did you make this? It looks intriguing.

Great projects posted by all!  Skittlebub, that's some serious workin', congrats on completing so early in the year!

I have officially completed my FIRST EVER tute on Craftster!!

I redesigned my apron top pattern during the making of, and I'm SO happy with how it came out and it's now my new pattern that will be used for all others to come, modified for various sizes of course.  There's boob space in it!!  LOL!

Here's my apron top for this year for me:

These are also the most current shots of me, 24lb down!!  YAY!

Wow, skittlebub, that's a lot of projects down!  The owl hat is cute; it's too bad the sizing is messed up. Sad

TSM, great destashing - on the top and on you. Smiley
