i should be posting my list of things for June, but since i havent really followed my lists yet im gonna try a different approach ;-P no before list, just an after list. my craft add is getting the best of me so im going to focus on ufos, with new stuff thrown in of course!! lol! i started a new attempt last night, my first foray into embroidery! i took an iron on pattern from a book (from th 80's!!) and just started stiching! its an elephant on a circus ball, and so far ive just got the elephant done, i used a pink metallic floss and a stem(?) stitch to do the outline. not going to fill anything in yet, im starting small. and no pics yet either cause im not exactly sure how to post them from my phone, hopefully soon tho!!

so finishing my first ever hoop (done with real embroidery) and my first ever swap are the main goals for June!

*claps hands* Let's get crafting!!! lol!

Thanks for the comments! lafemmefatale, no worries - I was very worried about going for a comic book theme. Specifically going overboard or the whole room looking too childish!

kwiltykate - your new bag is adorable! I love the fabric!
shan-E-bear - ack! The Batman onesie is adorable! And my sister would give her right hand to have the panda hat!
sheepBlue - love the jellyfish and mermaid hoop, especially the tentacles!
waggonswest - beautiful quilt, and such a great idea to have students sign it! Lucky teacher!

So I posted a list then have just totally stalked this thing. I suck. I have in fact been crafting. Just nothing on my list. No surprise there hahaha. (I just went back and added more to the list - i totally cheated!!)

Most of my crafting has been for swaps. I love swaps!!

OWS66: I angeled for ChrisSews. I crocheted some slippers and a swiffer cover:

OWS67: I made pheonixfiredesigns a purse:

OWS 69: Padfoot asked for a princess towel for her little one: this is what I came up with:

This was for PixieVal, off of her wist: It is a mail organiser (pics are hers!!)

I made an AWESOME rosary for Lo{ve}, but she has disappeared off Craftster and I forgot to take a pic. So alas no pic.

OWS 70: I made these hairbows for StephanieGravatt. She has twins and wanted some bows for holidays and the like for them to wear to school!

I made an apron for Mauer (her post, her pics)

Frosty772 asked for a snood (I LOVE making snoods!! I just wish they didn't take so long!!)

For the Invite your partner swap, I made sugaree an apron, a slouchy hat, a hip slinger and some swiffer duster covers:

For my non swap Craft.....I finished up a cross stitch I had started YEARS ago!! I totally love it! I think it is going to be a bday gift. If I can get the spots out Sad

rainbow, I can't believe you started with metallic floss.  I tip my hat to you!

redstar, that towel is a great idea!  The first thing I would try with the embroidery is a soak in Oxi-clean.  (But I'd try soaking a bit of the floss first, to make sure it won't bleach or run.)

I made myself stop being lazy and whipped out a present for my son.

It's made using the Funky Friends Factory Honey the Teddy Bear pattern.

Aww! The teddy's cute in a slightly eyeless way  Wink

I made the second of two baby nests for my friend's photography prop box, now she has a more boy one as well as the more girly one. Neither of them is completely gender specific and can be adjusted towards either gender. Bonus in that each of them only took like half an hour! I love instant gratification...especially considering I have three sewing projects in the works as well as a couple of other crochet projects  Grin

For the girls

And the boys

I can't wait to see actual professional picture with actual infants!

It's bad when you don't realize the month has changed until you read somebody saying "I need to get my June list up."

The teacher quilt is awesome, the eyeless bear is sweet (and won't leave marks if he falls asleep facedown on it as mine were wont to do), and all y'all make me jealous with all this awesome crafting. And all these swaps!!!

I'm almost done with a HUGE project. But it's really hot outside and I've been volunteering at my old workplace to help them get up and running in their new digs. Maybe Saturday...

Oh, and also there are apparently lots of snakes out and about too. Shocked

I actually thought the spot belonged there because it was a gun Cheesy

I would try a bleach pen...I have had success with them even on vintage linens...you just need to be sure not to let it bleed into the areas you do not want...

I seriously need a snood...did you use a pattern?

shan-e-bear--I have never heard of a baby nest...but it makes perfect sense!  How cute!

Thanks guys. I went the eyeless route on the teddy bear, because my son puts everything in his mouth. So the safety eyes or bead eyes the pattern called for were out. Then when he was finished I kind of liked him without a face. (Plus, I'm not great at embroidery and I really didn't feel like stitching on a felt face.)

The baby nests are great. I especially like the blue one.
