Trying to catch up on this thread since I had a tooth extraction last week.  Cry

sarahj2001- the silhouettes, quilt and piata are all great! Your cake scared me a bit.  Cheesy

- Lamps, yoga socks/pants and beaded necklace was eye candy for me.  Wink

I want to crochet and finish up a lot of my listed projects, but I seem so busy. It's a little unnerving. Soon I tell my self, and I do have half a year for my remaining 32 projects. I have the evil instinct to fill it back up to 50 again, Grin but I think it'd be too much pressure on me, and I seem to slack around the holidays. Blech.

O'well. Happy Crafting! Tongue

Well, I only got 3/8 off my June mini-list, so I guess I'll carry it over to July. I did add something to it, though!

1. Matron-of-honor dress for me (wedding is June 26)

This is before the wedding (obviously!), but it's the best full-length shot of the dress that I have right now. I'm hoping the wedding photographer and others have some better ones...

4. Make sewing machine cover
I don't have a photo yet, but I got to try out my new bias tape maker! I love it!!!

7. Five flower headpieces for wedding (same wedding as above)

These were for all of the bridesmaids to wear.

So those were the only three things completed from the list...

I also made a dress for my baby for the wedding. I couldn't pass up the opportunity for us to match! Also not the best picture, but hey ... That's her daddy holding her.

Here's another of the two of us. Excuse the massive boobiness -- my hubby says that's why the babe is smiling so big!

Forgive the crapiness of the photos, I meant to make sure I got some good ones of us, but that was forgotten in the pre-wedding madness!

2. Begin (and maintain) a scrapbook for Ruby Mae
3. Make at least three crib sheets (1/3)

3. Cover for wingback chair
4. Cushion for bench
5. Cushion for hope chest
6. Cushions for rocking chair
7. Corduroy jacket for Michael
8. Quilt for mom
9. Quilt for grandma
10. Quilt for Meggie and Mike -- June
11. Bridesmaid dress -- June
12. Duvet cover
13. Finish Beth's jacket
14. Finish denim rug
15. Make candles
16. Build a bottle terrarium

Thank you! It's being given as a gift today. I am hoping my friend will like it. She's in love with him. hehe. My first attempt at knitting an actual doll...and pants and tiny clothes. All without a pattern. lol. Was fun! Lots of trial and error.

Oh my goodness I got NOTHING finished this month!!! AHH! had such high hopes and everything... oh well guess I'll just be working harder this month...
But on the plus side I should be getting my first serger tomorrow!!! Yay!! So that should help motivate me! Hopefully I will have new things to post very soon.
Everyone's creations look so awesome! But I cannot get over the gas-mask lamps! How did you come up with that idea?

I love Snape ami!! Did you use a pattern? So cute.

The dress (and your daughters dress) I so pretty!

I went ahead and made a post for my items I've been doing. The shirts I've reconned, I decided to take the recon the pile of shirts off my list because the original pile is gone. The problem is I kept pulling more old clothes from my stash that added to the pile. Also the item "at least one shirt from wist" is taken care of in this post.

I'm done with an embroidery project but I want to pair it with some pics of my babies so I'm going to wait to post it.
