76. A replacement monster for SilverMoon, to replace the one that didn't make it home. I didn't take a photo before I sent so maybe she can post one when she is able to upload pictures again

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:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346652.0
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?

the rainbow scarf is lovely and so are the fingerless gloves.  I have a few pairs of those on my "to do" list -- it would be nice if I get to them before winter  Roll Eyes

I hate it when salespeople do that. They should be polite and helpful to everyone. And don't they realize that the person who comes in and spends $5 could one day be the person who comes in to spend $500?

Oh, and I love that scarf, Always. It's gorgeous!

cursive_queen - was just about to offer you a PM of the 'fairly' quick pattern I've done in case you might want to use it, but then had a quick look at your images, and realised that that would probbers be considered a bit of an insult looking at the stuff you make, so sorry!!!  Embarrassed

If anyone does want the pattern, then please PM me, and I'll be happy to type up and send off.

evilsabina - yeah I know!! If I didn't need the stuff, and have no other option (in Britain, so no choice whatsoever!!) I would have left!

Thanks everyone--I was being casual because I was hoping it would slip by TSM...no such luck! Cheesy

TSM--no worries--I know you are busy with wedding stuff!!!! I love you anyway! Cheesy

I was just anxious to post... and cross it off my list! Cheesy

oh lozzieozzie---score!!!!!!!!---now I am going to have to add bags to my list!  I have loads of wrapping paper but most gifts require a bag (like wine! Cheesy)...

What are you doing with the cones stuff?  When my hubby worked at a carpet factory, he was given loads of that but I never had any idea what to use it for...weaving did you say?  It might be just the thing to get my butt to finally make a hand loom!!!!!!!!  Please--more details!

Iozzie - Oh no, I would love an easy pattern!  I'm still learning.  The only two things i've completely finished knitting are a dishcloth and a hat Tongue
