col, I'd like to spend time in your craft room. Chaos, just how I like it. Cheesy
How cool that you could make that zombie game for your son.

mel, my phone doesn't want to let me see the quilt, so I'll have to check it out later.

Yay, green! I've got a few different green projects in the works right now, so that's perfect!

love your craft room craftyoldlady!

here's a taggy I made for Brady. I may have gone overboard with the ribbons on such a small piece (about 6"), but it was my first one. The green polka dot backing is a bit washed out, its a nicer green than it looks. There is a mixture of satin and grosgrain ribbon, mostly 3/8" with some slightly narrower, some block colour and some polka dot. Smiley





Love the March themes Smiley

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

My son loves Peppa Pig's brother George and Raa Raa the noisy lion.

Wauw Mellybelly - you did make polka dots. Polka dots are cool! And I like the pirate theme. Meleriffic - both your blankets are great. Craftyoldlady - you sure are one of us! Your craftroom looks so inviting and warm, and I love your garlands, both the Valentine one and the one on the shelves.
Great theme for March, Gaudyknigth. I might be able to find one or to unfinished objects....

rottenlittleboys - thank you  Grin

mellerfic - the quilt is AWESOME

aprettymess - I dont mind col at all Wink and I was rather proud of myself when I realized there were codes below the pictures. and the valentines i had been working on for so long that once all was done I just stood there with them and thought "Now what?"

bananaleg - chaos is right! However there is a bit too much in there to get anything done! If its too neat then I am scared to mess it up - so need a happy balance Smiley

kookaloo_starr - you are welcome anytime! I do have a little bit of everything, and in some cases a LOT of some things, which makes it nice - I dont have to wait to start a project most times. I may not have exactly what I need but I can usually find a good substitute.

mellybelly81 - thank you Smiley And I have to ask, what exactly is a "taggy"? The smart alec in me popped up and said that picture right there is a "taggy"! But I am wondering what is it for??? I looked it up on google - but I kept getting blankets or cubes. What you made is so adorable, I love the pirate/treasure theme on the fabric! I dont know about a baby, but it would keep me entertained for quite a while!

Taramor - thank you, my daughter says it is so me and is her favorite room, and she will come in and sit with me while I am crafting and we just talk and laugh all the time. (all my kids are grown - she is my youngest (19) and away at college and comes to visit some weekends) The garland on the shelves were made from the kids crib sheets! Dont know if you can tell, I have a hard time getting rid of things Wink

I love the fabric you used COL for the game bag. Someone gave me a remnant of it and I used it to make a panel skirt for my friend Nicky to wear dancing  Grin

It is a lovely picture, Kookaloo - your friend looks so happy dancing in her fine skirt.
Col, I think a taggy is a toy with those small ribbon 'tags' on it - for the baby to play with. By the way - I got a daughter on 19 too, but she is still at home.
