Cool starghan!

The pillowcase nightgowns are very pretty.

Good work on the gardens - it is such hard work digging them out!

Sheepblue, I am so impressed by your embroidery!

Oh, and yarn bombing - so cool!  What kind of reaction did people have?

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

Well I live in a town of less than 600 so I didn't see people much. I saw a few cars, but then a very random fleet of cyclists came by. One knew what I was doing but didn't know about the holiday. She thought it was cool; probably because Maine doesn't really see yarn bombing. As far as other people, I am sure I will hear gossip eventually. We installed a shuffle board court at our house and it doesn't have it's lines yet. We have been having people constantly ask us what the heck we are doing. It's funny hearing their guesses. We installed it a month ago and we are still hearing talk about it. So, it might be a while but I am sure I will hear something from someone eventually. People here always talk about change, because change is abnormal here  Roll Eyes

OK, I got caught up on 30 or so pages in the last two days. There are so many great projects going on!

I've only completed one project in the last month -- my craft room got organized. The last month of my life has been pretty crazy, so I don't have an after picture yet. I also started some embroidery (or wall art, I haven't decided which one to cross of my list yet), but it's now a WIP.

In the meantime, I did finish another project, not on my list, but he's a holdover from last year:

Seamus Michael, born 6-1-11. Except right now he looks like this:

Little guy was born with a heart defect that didn't become apparent until he was a week old -- after he had been at home for five days! We're in the hospital now, awaiting surgery tomorrow that should fix everything and make him healthy and strong for the rest of his life.

I'm going to pick up my embroidery when I go home later this week (we're about an hour away), since I have so much down time while I sit by the little guy's bed.

Last I knew, my garden was doing great. We got four heads of broccoli, right before the heat was have toasted them away. Tomatoes are popping up all over the place, and they may be some ready to be harvested -- but my mom gets those, since she's taking care of the home front (and my daughter) while we're gone.

Sorry for all the off-topic chat -- other than my husband, bunches of nurses and a sedated baby, I don't have anyone to talk to!

Congrats on they baby, he's adorable, I hope everything goes well.  Embroidery seems like a good project to bring along.  Portable and doesnt' take up too much space

Today I learned how to make t-shirt yarn

And although I'm going to need to make a ton more to make a braided rug, I'm going to count the learning as a project!

You know what?  I hadn't even thought about making my own rugs.  We have a ton of old t shirts that aren't good will worthy that we were going to turn into rags... I'm adding this to my list.  Good call lady!

Aww he's adorable. And the kind of project that takes the most out of you. I hope everything works out and that he gets better soon.

oh deeder--that is definitely a project inspired by others! ha ha lots of craftster babies lately!  I will prayer for his health and send positive thoughts to you and your family! What a cutie!

And, I also think embroidery is something that you can do in the hospital to keep you occupied and not worry...maybe you could do something for his room!

Deeder, your baby is adorable. Hope the surgery goes well and he comes home safe and healthy for you.

This weekend was uneventful and I didn't get any crafting done, but I got some supplies for a swap, might even make swap crafts part of my 50. I love Tshirt yarn! I am about 5% into my own tshirt yarn rug. Wanted to make it for our furbabies.  Cheesy

Hoping this week is better and this heat doesn't make me sick or not make me want to craft. Blech! Anyone else get sick when they get over heated? Arizona isn't the best place for me. Sad
