I bet those baskets were a hit!  So well put together -- catches the eye!

Love the soft color of the quilt lap robe...what is the size for that?

I really love the quilt. It has a shabby chic kind of feel.

Lovely quilt in pastel colors.

Lively bunting. I like the polka dot ribbon you put on top. Did you sew each triangle with two fabrics and turn them other?

I love the soft blues of the lap robe. Beautiful.
And the basket looked fun!

What a lovely basket to recieve. They must have been a hit!

thanks everyone.  The raffle is today so I won't know until later how they did.  Sure hope they raised some money for the church.

The quilt is about 36 x 50 inches.  The fabric is a collection that was under a sign that said shabby chic at the Hancock's store.  I don't usually buy fabric from one line for a quilt but I was in a hurry.  I was looking for soft and sweet and this was the only way to get enough variety. 

I'll post a tute for the buntings when I get a chance.  The one in the picture is made by sewing two fabrics right sides together and turning.  I did the other two differently.

I feel like I've been crafting furiously, but not getting much done.  Maybe I should concentrate on one project long enough to finish, eh?  Roll Eyes  Still, I got a bit done in the last month...

29. Bazinga Cross-Stitch Hoop for the One Tiny Thing Secret Partner Edition:

30. Another bracelet!  This one was the first time I used a shank button for the clasp, And I think I like it more than the beads...

31.  My Little Victoria, made as a joke for a friend who is a Words With Friends nut (hence the scrabble tile as a cutie mark).  Not up to last year's My Little Two Hearts standards, and not anywhere near what real pony modifiers do, but... okay.

32. Dalek Pincushion for the One Tiny Pincushion Swap.  Thank goodness my partner posted such good pictures, found out mine were annoyingly blurry.  So this is a pinched photo...  Cheesy  I've tried this pattern TWICE now, on two different scales (yarn and hook sizes) and it just doesn't work for me the way the original picture shows it should.  I have to be doing something wrong.  :/  Still, I think it's an adorable short, chubby Dalek (I did stop one row short to keep him under 4" or he would have been even wider at the bottom).  I call him Baby Dalek.

33. Once Upon a Time cross-stitched bookmark.  Made for a relative, never heard if she even got it in the mail.  Either outcome leaves me depressed (lost in mail/didn't care enough to say thanks) so I'm just letting it go.

34. Deck of altered cards, 52 in total, 13 different designs.  A friend is doing a swap, and she's shuffling up the cards and sending them back out.  So 4 of each of the designs shown (front and back, drawings and matching sayings shown).

35. Eeyore's Day Out scrapbook.  I mentioned I was bereft between Little Visitor Swaps, so a friend gave me her Eeyore and I took him around to all the public art pieces in the town I work in, then made a scrapbook for him.  Not the best scrapbook (I'm really not very good at that) but it's fun.  He also got to see the Wienermobile!

36. Black and Red double circle skirt.  For a performance (sorry about the face, it was right before we were going on, I didn't want to forget to get a picture!)

37. Double circle skirt for Violet Anne, my LV!

38. Another red double circle skirt made for a troupe member (it was midnight, the day before we needed it, so I look horrible, but yay, it was done!).  Fun fact - Violet Anne's skirt was made from the pieces cut out at the waist of this skirt.  Cheesy

Looks like you've been pretty productive to me. Love the bracelet and the Dalek pincushion. I think he looks good short.
