that1girl - your animal print pillow is AMAZING!! (I have a thing for animal print - a sickness really Wink )

You guys are rocking sh*t out this month! hot damn! I have a redone - in progress room I am working on (flooring went in yesterday!!) I'll eventually post pics. It's at my parent's house and it turned into an Alyssa project, which is fun! So far i have:
1. Stripped out carpet and padding that has been there since we moved in 26 years ago
2. Removed floor to ceiling mirrored closet doors that scream 1980's
3. Removed the tracks from the floor and ceiling from said doors
4. Rebuilt/plastered/repaired a water damaged plaster window sill.
5. Repaired walls, filled holes, re texturized walls
6. Painted ceiling, walls and closet (closet had NEVER been painted - Navajo white was so in in '86)
7. Scraped the gunk from 26 year old padding off the floor boards/ prepped floor for laminate
8. Put in laminate flooring with my mom. Click in flooring = awesome! Only downside - when purchasing flooring, my dad miscalculated and we are 6 slats short. Not a big deal except I sent him to Habitat for Humanity "ReStore" to purchase it. They are closed on Mondays and I am hoping and praying they have one more box in the right color!

On a side note- If you need flooring/tiling or are looking for restorable sinks or lighting fixtures - check out ReStore!! They are all over the country and all the proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity, which is a very good cause!! I've even been motivated to looking into volunteering on a build as soon as I con my partner in crime (aka my best friend) into doing it with me!! Smiley

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

My sister is a volunteer for Habitat!  She loves the work they do...I was lucky enough to work with Jimmy Carter and his wife on a home in Atlanta...there is something about working with your hands that makes everyone equal! Cheesy

Sounds like your house projects are kicking your butt! But, just think--after all the hard work, you will have fun making stuff for your home!

I love ReStores!  We got a Kholer cast iron sink that goes from pale yellow to a marigold sort of color (and it's super deep!) for 25$ that was new and it would have cost us 350$!...we wouldn't have bought it then Grin

I finished a number of things this weekend due to my folks canceling their trip up to see our new(to us) house due weather issues.  So..that's like free time right?  Most of it is swap or challenge stuff, so I can only show this at the mo...My HUGEBag!

I envy you your restores! Young House Love always post about the fabulous finds they get at theirs, but there is nothing at all similar here.

I've been finishing nothing. I've knocked out a foot of garter stitch for a shrug I'm making, my first ever knit project, but that just means I have 5'8" left to go. I did get one bootie made last night, and I hope to have a matching one done by tonight so I can share them. They are turning out quite cute.

You can get some good stuff at the auctions sometimes. The country ones are best & there used to be a good one down your way a couple of years ago.
I have just cracked 41. With need to resize pictures before I can upload but, I will add everything to my original list at some point today.

smashu--you are my latest craftster crush!  So talented...I have just started including a lot more kale in my diet...the t-shirt design really made me laugh!

I'm seconding that! Some extremely beautiful work.

Oh too cute, wagons!  I absolutely love it!  The tree really does give it sometime special.

I love it.  The tree and the way you quilted around it added the heart leaves really make the piece.  I'm sure your swap partner will love it.  If not she can send it my way.  Wink

Your mini quilt is lovely! I admired it on the quilting board too Smiley.

suereal I LOVE gigantic bags!! I don't think you can have a bag that's too big. Did you use some IKEA fabrics in there??

23 months ago in Apr 2010 I had weight loss surgery, I was over 400 pounds, I had weighed 463 pounds when I was first scheduled for surgery in Aug 09 and since then I have lost nearly half my body weight
The half gallon bottle I tried was too small for 229 bamboo pieces (I used bamboo pieces from place mats and dyed them with alcohol ink I made) so this is a Gallon Jar next to a pint jar, my goal by the way is 190 not too worried about getting smaller than that just want to break 200
