You did a great job, Craftylittlemonkey! Plenty of quilts are tied, so yours isn't disqualified. I really love that backing fabric!
-a black jersey knit miniskirt
-a tailor's ham (super easy!)

Cute, cute, cute...and the buttons are sweet!  =]  How long did they take to work up? 
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.

Bananaleg I have some of those buttons, they are super cute on your slippers!

Prettymess that skirt is so awesome! I have a bunch of weird fabrics for skirts that I have to make up this summer. I bought some fruit prints that are actually scratch and sniff, no kidding. Banana, apple and orange, I can't wait to wear them lol.

I have pockets saved from deconstructing pants years and years ago, I had a whole box full of them I wanted to make a large quilt out of but a while ago I sorted them and kept only a few. I have had them on the back burner because there are just tons of other projects that need my attention more than a random pocket craft but last night I couldn't resist working with them LOL. After the finger destroying hand sewn quilt binding for 3 nights in a row I wanted to do something FUN! I have no idea what I'm going to do with this thing, maybe a door or wall hanging? I am not really into "stuff" hanging around the house but I kind of love this a lot so will probably keep it. I still need to edge stitch the center panels and I think I'm going to line the back with some funky cherry patterned flannel (an old baby blanket a family friend made me when my daughter was born). How to hang it up though, hmm... Anyhow, what do you think?

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. ^.^

Oh, you're smart. I don't think I saved any of those though...
I'm working on it now, I'll put a layer of fleece between the front and the back so it can be used as a lap quilt for my daughter but I'll put loops on the back or a hem of some sort to hang it up with using a dowel.
I've laid out some of the other corderoy scraps to make covers for some giant cushions I made last year. I wasn't sure about keeping those either but the kids use them so I think I will. They are filled with chip foam I scored at the thrift store for next to nothing, I like it because it fluffs back up so easily, unlike polyfil.

Destashed some of my bedsheet stash on this 'test' dress for a pattern I'm going to make for a personal swap.  I wanted to test it before I made the actual item as once I cut the fabric, I will NOT have enough left to start over, and I can't get anymore (vintage bed sheet) if I screw it up.  I'm pleased with how it came out, though I will be going with the other option for the back, as this option was a HUGE pain to do and I had to rip and re-sew like 3 times before it fit me right.  Don't have that option when making and mailing to someone...you won't be there to rip and re-do if it doesn't fit them right!

Overall I like it, and maybe with some tweaking on this current back style it could work out better for making something blind for another person in the future.





Even though this was a test project, it is a completed project nonetheless.  Another item off the list!
