I'm so behind on this board!  ACK!  I've had something to do every single day after school this week so I haven't been able to really keep up.  Hopefully this weekend I'll go back and look at everything I've missed!

Finished a bag I was making for my sister's birthday... and with 4 HOURS to spare!! Nothing like a deadline to get me finishing stuff Smiley
Its a 'tote' bag style, quite large. She asked me about a month ago to make her something similar to an ipad cover I made her for xmas, luckily I still had some of the fabric leftover.

Inside pockets for phone, pens and a zippered pocket
And gratuitous action shot Wink

The chalk lines only seem to show up in photos?? looks fine in person Smiley

I love looms.

Hey guys!  I finally have stuff to show, yay!  But be warned - the pictures are absolute junk.  It seems the only time I get time to take pictures it's dark and I don't have good indoor lighting for pictures...
First, my five minute arm warmer things:

made from a pair of knee high socks I got for $1 at Wal-Mart.  They were super easy - I tried them on, figured out where I wanted the hole for my thumb, cut off the feet and snipped a small hole where I'd marked the thumb placement.  Then I stitched around the hole on my machine using a zig zaggy stitch so it could stretch if it needed to.  I keep these in my purse and use them all the time for driving, typing, etc.  I wasn't sure how much I'd use fingerless gloves but I really like them!

Next is a jewelry display box I made for my daughter.  She has started collecting bracelets and necklaces, which led to a tangled pile of junk in the bottom of the bathroom drawer, so I came up with this.  It's made from a box that was part of the packaging of our Wii.  I spray painted it black, then glued scrapbook paper inside it with a contrasting band at the top and bottom.  The jewelery hangs from those little hooks you can get to put under your counter for mugs to hang on.  I had everything in my stash already so I was pretty stoked!

I have more to show but I keep forgetting what I've taken pics of and what I've forgotten, ha ha...anyway, that's two more for the count so yay!  Cheesy

Oh, before I forget...here's what I'm working on tonight:

A new huge quilt for my bed!

What a cute hat mellerific! My 5 yo daughter would totally wear that. Smiley

After what feels an eternity (work has kicked my butt and I've now got the latest seasonal lung crud), I'm BACK!

I have finally done something with my blog that I've been wanting to do for some time. I've added my first of many planned tutorials! I was indecisive about where to start so I decided to go with comfort foods. I'm planning on doing other types of tutes but I've been all about foods that make me all warm and happy lately. Smiley

Troublet - you commented on my blog  Kiss - yup - barbque bread and Texas toast are the same thickness - just shaped differently.  I'm not sure if you went back to see my comment or not lol.  I need up post an entry for the newest recipe I tried - taco melts.  They were a huge hit and will be lunch leftovers today  Smiley  We'll see how well they reheat....

I'm making those enchiladas again Monday.  My family loooves them!  I'm thinking I'm going to try a new cornbread recipe as well - one that takes creamed corn in the recipe.  I'm all about food lately too.  I think it's the meds I'm on.  They make me hungry

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

WOW!!!  Had about TWENTY pages to catch up on here, sorry, but I only scanned photos and did not read up on all the news.  I believe there has been some loss, sickness, babies, happiness, and everything else in between...so, I'm sorry/congrats/have a great day/and keep that energy flowing to all Smiley

I've lost my crafty mojo somewhere over the several states between FL and NH on my trip to and from NH for my vaca Tongue  Didn't craft on my flight to or from, nor did I craft during my trip either....and I can't seem to pick up and craft anything now that I'm back again either.  Granted, I didn't get back until Thurs evening, so I've only officially been back ONE day...I beat myself up too much methinks!  LOL!  I'm sure to make some headway on something on Tuesday when I'm off again...alas, I am stranded with 3 projects down in 2011 only, though I still have tons of ideas and inspiration piled around in the craft room to get me back on track!
