Lindy--I love graphic hand carved stamps...they make wonderful backgrounds for all sorts of printing...the chevrons are a great idea..I am a beginner at carving, so simple shapes are best for me...nice!

Eep! I need to really get moving! I keep seeing more and more pretty things everyday!

I haven't done stamp carving since high school. But my sister wants me to take it up again so I can make a Tardis stamp Grin

My partner said she received in the OPS but she hasn't posted pics. So here's the pics, with the exception of one item that I don't seem to have a pic for:
Cute little play envelopes for her little girl. They're lined with felt for stability and have velcro closures.


Three bear mug rugs (one for Breegy, her bf, and their daughter). They're made of a soft flannel but aren't quilted since I couldn't find my little bit of batting.

I have made a tiny sea turtle, to add to my list! Smiley But I have realized I must hurry and do some more crafts if I will be able to finish my 50 projects this year. Smiley

Anyway, here he is;

Two of my coworkers fell in love with the bear rugs so I'll probably make a few more Cheesy

I understand that - they are great! They could help those of us, who dreams about a bearskin rug at the fireplace  Cheesy Grin. Did you use a pattern?

A de-stash skirt.  I have nearly finished using this fleece fabric now.

The skirt is fleece?  Now that is a brilliant idea especially since the winter has been so cold!!  I never thought about making clothes, other than coats or tops...I love it...what is under it..I like having something peek out like that...

Yes, the skirt is fleece, totally because it is so cold right now. (Although, not as cold as parts of the USA). I'm just not a good cold weather person.

Underneath is a silk fabric lining.  I wanted to line it so that I didn't get too much static when I wear it with tights. I didn't have enough of any lining fabric, so dug this out of the stash.  I have a habit of e-baying on weekend mornings when I am mooching and sometimes, (often), I end up buying fabric, (usually at a bargain price), for no particular purpose. This was one of those occasions.

I just wanted a splash of colour.

I'm not sure if I'm going to count this one, but I finished an unexpected WIP!

To make a long story short, I made this baby blanket last year for charity:

I gave it to my mom to be added to a group of others to be donated, and they've sent it back to me because it was too small.  I shouldn't be surprised... I messed up the math on this one, and just got too mad at it to fix it once I realized what was happening.  I was hoping they could use it in a stroller or something...

Anyhow, I still had some of the yarn that I had originally used on this, so the dye lots matched.  Now it's bigger!

It measures about 3' square now.  That had better be big enough, because I'm all out of that yarn now. Tongue
