Ffrog, it'll be a new adventure.  Bracelet amazing.  costume fantastic.  Neck warmer thingy wonderful.  Makes me want to learn to knit but then I have enough Don Quixote ideas....

I did do one thing today I am going to count toward my projects.  I froze some squash.  It was a funky heritage seed thing that was given to me by a gardener friend.  I tried some in a dish for dinner and the spuds really liked it so I blanched an froze the rest for winter. 

I posted pictures and a sort of recipe for the dish on my blog if you are interested. 


That puts me at 29 for the year and I WILL have another quilt done tomorrow!

Wow, I just wrote a "meeting agenda" schedule, only 5 weeks until rally.  Tomorrow I will be painting cardboard characters, hoping I don't get heat stroke.  I will also be working on mini soaps.

Looking for 100% Cotton scraps.  Miss G wants to make a scrap quilt for as little $ as possible, so if you have something that she could use, please pm me.

shan-E-bear - great outfit! I love the neck cowl (is that how you spell it??) It is a great color and looks so comfy!

meleriffic - that bracelet is gorgeous! I can't believe that is your first time beadweaving! I am really intrigued by it, but haven't tried it yet. It looks like one of those things that could be really fun, or really frustrating...

For the Make a friend swap, The final package was to be a large item. I spent about 3 1/2 weeks working on an embroidery project. At the last minute I realised it was never going to be finished in time, so I made this quilt. it is a lap sized (45X60) quilt and I am rather proud of how it turned out!

I have an embroidery machine! If you want to do personal swaps for machine embroidered items, (or are in my swaps!) let me know!

Meleriffic-it's stunning! Wish I had the patience! Shan-e-bear-cool outfit (and cowl) I don't think we get ren fairs over here-not entirely sure what they are?
Thanks always-I was up til 4am the other night reading all the info Cheesy and redstar-il check it out!
I was gonna post pics last night, but I couldn't get on at all??
I've nearly finished the shawl/wrap-had to stop was sneezing mohair fluff!! Errrr! How do you guys block bigger pieces? I used to pin it to the carpet, but don't have that option any more. Will try and post other pics tonight.

The bracelet is beautiful...my niece gave me a beading loom but I have no idea how to use it!

Glad to see fall projects!  The cowl is lovely and I think you make a fetching wench, shanEbear! Cheesy

Redstar13--the quilt looks like a stained glass window!  Love the colors against the black.

totally forgot about fall canning and cooking!  I will be making hot pepper jelly again this year and probably some dried tomatoes...

Oh--and I made this scarf for thesapphiremoon because I love her!

OMG!  I totally forgot to send you a PM to thank you, always Sad  I feel like a heel Sad  THANK YOU!!!!  I adore it, and it's super soft and the rainbowy-ness is awesome Smiley  I have it standing by for fall for the next cool day I spend outdoors somewhere.

Working out all our wedding details has got me so frazzled Tongue  I've sewn 2 zip pouches, and a few weeks ago I sewed up 2 pairs of shorts I never photographed.  I have put them both thru the wash this week, so I should be able to snap a pic and post that.  I have a ton of items I've made for the Giant Multi-Theme swap that's due out by the end of this month, so maybe I can post some of those bits too.  Can you tell I really want to make it to 50 no matter how I do it by the end of the year?  All our wedding stuff will eventually count on my list, but some of the other 'normal' crafts may not end up getting made as I've been so burnt out lately.  I made it to 50 last year, and damnit, I'm gonna do it again this year!

Always - I love that scarf! And I also love how it was just an afterthought on your post, y'know like 'oh, and I made this...' like it was effortless!! How do you churn out so many gorgeous things so quickly?!?!  Huh

Sapphiremoon - you're already at 32, well over half way there - you'll do it!  Wink

Pics for another two off my list (well one on original list and one added)

21) Try newspaper gift bags Done!

I used this tutorial:
I made a practice one with newspaper, to make sure it worked out OK(although I do quite like this in its own right), and then I made the 'for-real' one out of wrapping paper to give the gloves in. I doubled the wrapping paper over using double sided tape (we should get shares in that stuff in our house Grin) and made the bag up using more double sided tape for neat-ness. Then I punched some holes and threaded some ribbon through.

I think I might use a similar technique with some brown parcel paper for some commissions I have - maybe try making a stamp of my logo on the side?

50) Another pair of fingerless gloves - DONE!

I'm counting these because they still take a fair while to knit up

..and just because I'm really chuffed, my new score from yarn sale/giveaway:

There's some gorgeous stuff here, mohair, patterned sock yarn, beads - loads! and it only cost me 28 (about $45 I think?) Score!!
All the stuff on the big reels on the left was free, so I'm going to try some weaving methinks, and the rest was all bagged up at 1 bags. The beads were a penny, and the lovely shiny threads were 5 for a pound. I even got a metre square of velvet for 1!
The silvery and the purple mohair are earmarked for shawls, but the rest I'm not sure about  - I want to do something nice, and a maybe try something a bit 'out of the ordinary', since it was as good as free, so any ideas from you crafty peeps would be brilliant!

On a whiny note - went to get some fabric for some orders today, and the woman in the shop was so rude and unhelpful - until she spotted my bag that I'd made, and realised I'm that person that spends loads of money in their shop, and then she was falling over herself to be helpful - nice, eh?
