I finally finished the boob pillow for the hubby!!!!  So that makes a total of 5 things that are finished on my list....  5 out of 50...  how impressive  Roll Eyes   Smiley  lol  But I have a few more in the works.  One more that's almost done.  And I know I'm starting the T-Shirt quilt this summer.  Anywho - I'll post pictures of the hubby and his boob pillow when I get home again and have internet on my own computer.  That'll probably be Monday night or Tuesday.

I will be tallying up the projects and verifying with everyone before doing the drawing!  I am so glad to see that at least everyone is working on their lists!  Just remember some months are better than others...I know with gardening and all, that I become quite distracted and want to be outside!!!  But as it gets hotter, I will want to be inside crafting!

So glad to see people thinking of June already with very nice mini lists!

envirocraft--love the cake!!

The fabric bowls are great and so are the coasters!

I framed two pictures today .  I also made a simple desk mini calendar for my craft desk out of necessity.

A friend of mine sent me the cutest bookmarks but I was afraid of losing them so I made a simple mobile instead.  Just for funsy.

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend  Smiley

About my projects for may- There are 8 projects in transit to a swap partner. (I wouldnt call any of them large projects except for, maybe, one. Haha but that is more because it took me about 5 days to make it, not because it is particularly big.) Sooo... I will leave it up to alwaysinmyroom to decide on my project sizes. I promise not to be upset either way.  Kiss

I have been super busy lately. I spent the whole beginning of the month completing swap projects, and thought I would never get to anything that I wanted to do for my family. The whole last week though, I powered through a ton of stuff.

Completed for May (as of May 30): 16

A reversible swiffer cover. One side is microfiber the other is a scrubby. I got one of these in a swap but it didnt fit so I took the idea and went to the dollar store and bought more towels.

5 Fabric books for my son. I bought the panels and just sewed them up.

2 Headbands (counting as one project) for my sister

Brown Bear memory game. There are a lot more pieces, but my son was already chewing on them and I didn't have the heart to take them away.

Canvas Wall hanging. I haven't put pictures on it yet because I want to add pics of my son's 1st birthday and that isn't until November

A set of fabric letter cards

A mountain bike cake for my nephew

A set of phonics blocks. I am planning on homeschooling my son and have been trying to make things as I see them on-line so when the time comes to actually use this stuff it is ready to go]

A set of phonics cards

Some Kanzashi flowers for hair accessories

A freezer paper stenciled floor mat for my nephew. This was tough because it is ridged and the paint kept bleeding into other ridges.

A reversible apron that I designed based on pictures I have seen of this type of apron.

And here is my updated list:
