Those tile coasters are great. I've made them several times for teacher appreciation gifts. Super easy and inexpensive.

I joined the Ongoing TM patch swap so expect tons of little pictures over the next few months  Grin Grin I figured these are the perfect summer craft as they're sewn by hand they can be sewn in the garden when I'm supervising hubbys projects  Wink

wow, that1girl, you've been busy! I like all your stuff, and the daleks are cute. And your neck scarf/cowl/blue/purple piece is very pretty. Can I ask, why is it called age of brass and steam?

The scarf is so lovely...and I love the colors of the yarn!  You are equally talented at crochet and knitting...and fast to boot!

So many beautiful things!  Ive been trying to keep up, but the pace is still fast and furious, even going into summer!

I havent posted many projects since February, but I have been busy.  Having finally located where I stored the pics, Ive got a backlog to post!

My family loves celebrations, any little gift-giving occasions.  My folks are both 80, and we still do Easter baskets.  This year was new in that I was the one who prepared the baskets Easter morning.  So of course, I had to craft some things.

16. Easter Array

The felt carrot cones were so popular last year, I had to make another set.  I also decorated two old tea tins to hold my mothers Lemon Chili Peanuts, and my fathers Lime Cashews.


17. Photo Album
 My mother has been re-discovering some old photos from her family.  It means a lot to her to be able to see them, so I made her a photo album.  Nothing fancy; a binder with archival black paper and sleeves.  But I really like the way the white ink looks on the black pages.


I borrowed the pictures for a weekend, and scanned digital copies for my sisters and cousins.  Id like to get some of the originals restored, like this turn of the century picture of my grandmother as an infant.



Im such a garden geek that one of the highlights of my spring is the area garden swap.  This year we had over a hundred people and an unbelievable number of plants.  I forgot to take a picture, but the next item on my list is:

18. 10 pounds of pulled pork and 60 plants to trade.
Altho friends at the swap would tell you the more amazing accomplishment is that I arrived early for the first time in a decade!

I kept better track of some of the things I brought for the door prize table.  (I meant to trade them, but they never made it off the door prize table!)

19. Terrariums
Not the best picture, but I had 5 terrariums I had made over the winter (complete with dinosaurs, action figures and the like), and a herd of little ponytail palms in cordial glasses.  They were all growing quite nicely, but Ive gotten a whole new bunch of thrift store glass, and I thought Id gift them to new homes.



20. Succulent dish gardens
I also made several desktop succulent container gardens.  I love having a little touch of green, even in the most sterile of work envisonments.



21. Bacon jam
A bad picture of the infamous bacon jam.  I get about 3 jars per bath, but I dont seem to be able to hold onto it long enough to get a group shot!



22. Apricot jam

Made with fresh apricots, which are just starting to come in.  Cant wait until they get really cheap I luuuuuuv fresh apricots!

23. Art cards


I needed to send a whole bunch of thank you notes that were essentially the same, so I sat down with a few beers, some cardstock, pretty paper and scissors, and had some fun with the process
 
24. Grand Canyon framed pictures
Picked up these lovely retro-look prints at the Grand Canyon last fall, and finally got around to framing them.  I love them!


Whew!  I still have a bunch of other things to post, but I think thats a fat enough post for now!

And now.  Back to the rest of the crafters!
