TSM - I love those bouquets! So pretty!

« Reply #4041 on: July 08, 2011 06:10:10 PM »

LOVE those colorful bouquets!

I haven't posted a mini-list before, but I have one posted on my blog:
1. dino shirt for nephew
2. sound fx pillows
3. BSG tote stencil
4. Mutant Enemy tote stencil
5. bubble wrap necklace
6. cord tote and accessory bag
7. agenda cover and tabs
8. wristlet
9. little horror house Halloween decoration
10. sound fx canvases
11. monster ninni (superhero)

A few of these projects aren't included in my posted 50 list. My to-do list of projects is waaaaay too long! Wink

The first five are already complete, so I'm feeling great about July. Add in work-free weekends, and I'm optimistic about my list! I'll be breaking out the sewing machine this weekend, so hopefully numbers 6, 7, 8, and 11 will complete by this time next weekend. I'm a beginner sewer, and cutting material is intimidating. Actually, my sewing machine is intimidating!  Cheesy

Those are lovely SapphireMoon! My sister had gerber daisy bouquets and centerpieces at her autumn wedding about 5 years back. I love how happy they are! And, thankfully, they are relatively easy to work with (I got put on bouquet duty. Had never made them before, but they totally rocked Wink )


I have an embroidery machine! If you want to do personal swaps for machine embroidered items, (or are in my swaps!) let me know!

Thanks for the comments everyone Smiley  I bought 2 bunches of each color, turns out I was able to use 3 of the 6 flowers on each bunch per bouquet, so now I have 5 extra unused ones that I can either keep for other projects, or return for a little coin back in my pocket...I think these were like a dollar something after the 70% off original price...but, hey, $5 is $5 when you have very few $.

I just updated my 50 projects list to move a few over and add in some more wedding bits.  Next up other than dresses are headpieces for each of us, and jewelry Smiley

Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to Epcot I go!

Originally I had 50 projects on my list but then a while back I decided to reorganize everything into categories (Knit, Crochet, Sewn...ect) without numbering them. I now have way more than 50 which I like because I can pick and choose what to make depending on how I am feeling. To me the list is a celebration of crafting 50 things in a year so I like to add as many things to my list as I like.  Smiley

I really like those gerbera daisies!  They are really beautiful!  Awesome find at JoAnn's!  I'm thinking I may have to go hunt around there this week since I"m in GA.  We don't have JoAnn's in NC.

On my list...  I've had to take a break from my skirt...  I won't be back in NC to work on it until July 21 or so....  Therefore...  I'm working on Troublet's Greenman...  I think he's really pretty already!  Cheesy  I'm kind of excited for him to be done.

I do have pics, but I am not sure which computer they are on right now, so when I find them I will post.  eventually I will put a thumbnail beside all of them, but that's time consuming so I need to find a day when I have lots of time:)

To finish before July 21:
FLounder/Tinker bell placemats
Yellow Ariel swimsuits (3) - ready to be hemmed, managed to get 2 suits for the older girls,
pink swimsuit top for me
size 5 Ariel sleeper
Ariel's pink dress - 1/2 done, need to sew hems and add elastic
Ariel's blue dress - light blue part is done
Ariel's main outfit (but not the same)
Little Mermaid geocache
Tinkerbell geocache
travel bag
pyjamas - fabric is washed and ready to use
party banner
party cups,forks,spoons,knives,plates - Done
Ariel towel dresses - 1 is cut
Towel dress for me - found the pattern
Camping toy box
Tinkerbell shirt - traced, ready for sharpy
Little Mermaid backpack
Little mermaid soundtrack on my phone
Tinkerbell soundtrack on my phone
Tinkerbell costume for nieces?

My mom's birthday is the 23rd, my nieces is the 24th, for the past 4 years the party is always themed for my niece, but my Mom was teasing saying she wants a tinkerbell party, not Ariel, so guess what's she's getting, lol.  This is also a camping party, we went and scouted out the perfect spot today so now I just need to prebook it:)
