I don't have any hope of catching up with you all this month.  The projects I have seen are absolutely amazing.  I am in awe of your fine work.

Aloha Oe was the first Hawaiian song I ever learned!  Lana is learning a dance that honors Queen Liliuokalani for their Folk Festival dance this June.

Like a lot of guys, my boyfriend will use his wallet 'til it's in pieces so I made one for him.

Here's the project page with more info on the wallet.

I think it is hard to make a wallet that a guy will use...my hubby is still using the ratty one he got probably 20 years ago! Cheesy

pinokeeo---my sister and I both play ukulele Cheesy  I am currently learning a few new songs using YouTube...there are some great beginner tunes...you should put that beauty to work!  Oh--and my mom made the cases for ours using black shiny vinyl tablecloths!

So true. He doesn't use it anymore but my dad does have a leather wallet that is at least 20 years old. When we got him a new one, he put it up instead of tossing it.

Thanks for the idea about Youtube.  That's a good place to start.  And my partner is going to make a case for mine.  I'll let her know about the vinyl.  She also has oilcloth and leather as options.

So my partner has recieved in the "what Im best at" swap so I can share what I made Smiley

I reckon that Im the best at felting, and also at being a bit of an upcycler. So after a bit of a snoop, I discovered my partner was an avid Zelda fan. And so after a bit of research (we dont really have cmputer games or TV in our house) I found a lovely image which I reproduced into a wall hanging......


Then I took to looking at my partners pinterest and found a wall decoration that she liked which was basically using scrabble tiles to spell out peoples names etc etc. On a recent scout at my local charity (thrift) shop I found a travel scrabble game and a beautiful frame. I took out the glass from the frame, and painted the back ground. I used buttons (1 pink, 2 blue the same and then 2 different blue as she has 1 girl, twin boys then two other sons - clever huh)
Then I took apart the travel scrabble game - its magnetic !! using acrylics I painted over the board, and then used the letters to spell out there names. Unfortunately they got mixed up in the post so hopefully my partner will see on here how I arranged the names.
I also managed to find a lovely little tin with a girl and 4 boy teddies on it, which I stuffed all the remaining letters in so that her family can spell out words of wisdom.



Finally for her children I made a bundle of my bean bag fliers for the kids to throw - seen here in practise with my littlest
