You did a great job, Craftylittlemonkey! Plenty of quilts are tied, so yours isn't disqualified. I really love that backing fabric!

That wreath is adorable. I also have several projects running that could benefit from some i-cords, but I've never made any before so I'll have to try some time soon.

So yeah, I haven't posted much, but I've been busy. So far I've made:
-a black jersey knit miniskirt
-two pairs of mini bloomers from Colette Patterns
-four bottlecap pin cushions
-two mixed media wall hangings
-a tailor's ham (super easy!)
Plus I'm about to finish a crocheted shawl and a bra from my own pattern. I'll try and take pics eventually, but since my laptop's broken, I'll have to wait until my new one comes in. I can't wait!

It looks great, craftylittlemonkey! I'm sorry your fingers hurt!

I can't wait for the pictures, Spiffyhink!

I've been looking for a slipper pattern than i could fall in love with for a while now... and i finally did!
The pattern calls for cotton, and the only cotton i had was Sugar 'n Cream. So, it's not the most comfortable on the bottom of my feet when i'm on a hard floor... but it's getting better the more i wear them, and i'm sure washing them will soften them up a bit.

I've had the buttons forever because i just couldn't part with them (even though they're pretty much always in stock at Joann) until i found the right project. And i believe these are it!

They left me with sore fingers. I was sure i would be blistered somewhere, but no blisters! Huzzah!

I worked about 2 hours the first night, I think. And the next day... maybe 4 or 5? I think. It seemed to go by pretty quickly, but I watched at least 3 movies (that's how I gauge time, haha).

Way to go, aprettymess!!   Smiley  Really love the skirt...and the shoes are very pretty.  I thought you were going to show home-made shoe bags to keep them from getting scuffed!!  *the skirt looks TinY!*  'course that comes from a girl 5'10", size 11 shoe, and much more to cover in a skirt, too... Roll Eyes

I like how you 'measure' time, bananaleg!  Do you measure for brownies that a-way??  Grin
I didn't get to chocolate cake...distracted w/business stuff again... Tongue
Been requested to make another pie for DH's workmates...made them one last Sunday.  Also made this week: a quiche and pumpkin pie.  I cheated...used Pilsbury pie crust.
A little bit of business today then I can go shopping and stock up on baking supplies...and a skein of yarn!  I plan on watching coverage of the Royal wedding for as long as I want...then putting in The Fiddler on the Roof and singing along as I bake and sew!!

Ive been relatively productive.  Ive sewed up one side of my quilt for my little niece.  When I say quilt, please understand my skills get me as far as sewing squares together and hoping they are straight.  Thing is I was having a bit of a funny five minutes in the shop and bought baby blue cord to back it rather than fleece.  When I got home I suddenly thought, although she might like the texture, it is not going to be very cuddly.  I had kind of thought it could be a mat on the floor in which case cord would be more practical, but now I think about it Im thinking I should have gone with the fleece...  Any opinions?  On a side note Ive got a little embroidery on the go.  De-stashing embroidery threads is not really a priority because I know I will just buy them all in again, but it has used up a little bit of grey cotton which I had no other plans for.  De-stashing 'by the thimbleful, again  Grin.

I love the pocket quilt! The first thing that came to mind for hanging; do you have any waistbands from pants left? You can attached one to the back and then run a dowel rod through the loops and hang it up that way. ^.^
