Great stuff!

Smeddly, those are awesome rainbow skirts!  I sort of want to make a small one for my kiddo, but definately not as involved (or awesome) as yours.

Smashu - congrats on the completetion of your thesis!  Your stuff is wonderful.  I see some LSP shirts in the future for my kiddos.  Hope to see you at comic con!

IDS13 - i like the twisty jewelry.  I have a dice that I want to wire wrap into a necklace at some point.

smashu:  Thanks!

A lapghan is a smaller blanket, designed to cover your legs while sitting.  The one I made is just the right size to cover both mine and my fiance's legs while sitting on the couch. ^_^

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Suereal I love the flying pig!  Even without the accessories, hes wonderful. And the wicked matchbox and sewing kit are cool too.  (I love things with teeth)

Ids13 love the ear cuff very nice work, especially for a first try!

SilverMoon nice ninja monkey.  And nice to know Im not the only one with an emergency gift closet, just in case.

Smeddley and smashu Im in awe of the clothing!  Really nice.

A few more things to add to my list!

25. bath salt potions and basswood rack

For the HP summer session craftalong, these are recycled hops tubes from my ister, filled with bath salts scented to remind me of various places; my grandmothers house (attar of roses) Washington State (fir and apples) Flagstaff (cedar and spice), etc.  The rack I made of craft basswood with a nice pearlized green paint.

26. Lavender bottles and sachets

The lavender is blooming like crazy this summer, so nearly every night I stop and pick some stems or pull off some heads as I'm going into the house.  Ill be making a bunch of sachets and pillows later this summer (lavender is one of my favorite scents) but while the flowers are still bright and fresh I tried my hand at making lavender bottles, which I havent done when I was a kid.  (As usual, I didnt think to take a picture before I started giving them away this is the dregs.  But still plenty nice hanging up in a closet!)

27.  Lavender scarf/stole

Also for the HP summer session craftalong made out of some soft baby yarn, this makes a great doubled over scarf if you stretch it lengthwise.  Pulled width-wise, it makes a nice little over the shoulders shawl for evening.  A nice quick knit!

28. Camera bag

I lost my little camera bag, so I made another from a felted sweater sleeve.  The back has two blanket stitched slits, so I can strap it into my bag.

And while dont have a good picture, the veggie gardens are in at work and at home. (#29) This year Ive put in four kinds of tomatoes, three kinds of peppers, two kinds of eggplants and cucumbers, along with rhubarb, kiwi vines, a red raspberry, several flowing vines,  and lots of different herbs; on top of the grape vines, blackberries and blueberries that are still there.   (Not bad for tiny little plots carved out of unused space!)
Im working on more water-wise strategies this year; adding a rain barrel at home, digging sphagnum moss and coffee grounds into the beds and experimenting with self-irrigating planters.  Heres to a fruitful summer!
