Thanks ladies! 

Lifeguard - behind the door is a perfect spot, they fit perfectly and it's a great way to use that unused space!

WOW, way to make progress, ladies!

I have the bookshelves up in another window for my dh to come in here and look at; those would be helpful here.  

And I LOVELOVE the baby sweater- that's too cool that it is complete with handmade buttons, too!

 

Okay, yay, I finally get to take a point.  I just finished my brown dress that I started about 6 months ago!  I thought I would leave it 2 pc, but the blouse definitely wouldn't be big enough for maternity.  So I went with the original plan and made it an empire dress.  I wound up using elastic in a casing at the joining, thinking that might help it be more wearable for maternity and after.  It has a loose cowl top, so I am thinking it might be wearable during nursing.

 

I had to do that first, because the machine I want to sew on had the walking foot already installed.  Now I'm about to take it off and finish that diaper bag, hopefully (cross fingers) today.

I am a *brand new* sewer and couldn't get my curtains (sheers) to hem.  So I just cut off the bottoms and hung them.  They look good enough for me!  Two points.

 

And I WILL string my birth bead necklace tonight so I'm almost up to three.

 

Go me!

I hadn't thought of that! I probably could afix adhesive backed Velcro all the way around the sides of the metal frame and then attach the other side of the velcro the the top of some nice fabric.  Or maybe the velcro would stick okay to the sides of the mattress... I wonder...

 

I would like it to be a little ruffly, but I haven't touched my sewing machine in 2+ years so I'll have to relearn everything. I'll probably just start out with a simple colorful pattern and see how that works out.

That's so cute! That looks like really nice colorway that you used? I'm curious which picture is more accurate, the top one looks more blue.

Good job! That reminds me, you've just added to my list! I forgot I definitely need to get on hemming all the curtains in my house. I used a mini stapler to stop them dragging on the floor and they look ridiculous. :P

Probably attaching it to the metal frame would work out the best.

I really should go work on curtains but I find that soooo boring.But my daughter is happily playing checkers with my husband so now would be a good time.ok,here I go....

 

rere - I just looked at your handmade items on flickr.  Is your dry erase board (the one with the thrifted sheet behind glass) working okay?  Are you using dry erase markers, and do they wipe off easily?

Yes,it works well with dry erase markers.I glued little magnets to the side of the frame and got the dry erase markers where the top is magnetic(and has an eraser on it)so they could stick on.

Nice work and Yay! for your husband coming home.That must be quite an adjustment.My husband is only gone for a few weeks at a time but it still takes some adjustment from us.

I didn't line them.I've made some in the past that are the same as the ones on the bottom and it's been fine with no lining.I don't put anything too gooey in there.

i did finish my diaper bag last night.  I am thinking this is gender neutral; that's why I used this vintage fabric for this bag. It has 15 pockets, including a big waterproof zippered one.

The baby sweater is in Claudia Hand Painted fingering weight and the colorway is "oops"  Its mostly blue/teal and purple.  The top picture is more accurate.  The buttons are blood wood or something like that, they start out red and as they are exposed to light they turn more brown (just the way that wood is).

 

 

I love all the shelves I am seeing.  I think we need to get on some shelves!  We have 100s of books and are low on storage.  I am wondering about putting end caps on the shelves so the books don't fall off the side?  Dp and I talked about making a sling shelf, so we'll see where that goes.

 

I started a slouchy tam for myself last night and had to frog the whole thing (ended up with totally the wrong number of stitches, grrrr) going to try again today.

 

I also want to make a mitten shaped bag for ds's preschool for the extra mittens/gloves I just bought for them (kids come without, or lose one, theirs get wet playing outside etc and they like to have a bunch on extra's on hand, hehe "on hand.")

Yeah.  That!!

 

I strung my birth beads last night.  Go me.  Now I need to wait for the gift for my son from the new baby to wrap and then pack my bag.  Holy crap, I'm going to have a baby in less than three weeks!  I'm not planning on being at the hospital too long, but will take some 'busy work" (cross stitch) for when I can't sleep and nobody is around.

 

I also need to think about the family Easter basket and what I should put in it for the kids.  FWIW, we don't celebrate Easter, but I was getting family guilt over not doing a basket so I have one for all the kids.  They usually figure out dividing the candy, but I'd like some little crafty things to stick in there.  Ideas for a young six y/o, a young two y/o and a newborn are welcome!  It will also have the basics - sidewalk chalk, bubbles, outside junk.

I altered a sweater that DH and DD gave me for Christmas- It had these weird button things in the front and the back was just straight.  I removed the button tabs from the front, sewed them together and used them to cinch up the back- it looks so much better:) so I will update my list later- but I am at 2/52!

darn gardenbelle- that sweater is super cute!  And I have 2 skeins of yarn that would be perfect for it :)  I will be adding that to my list for our new little one... I have no idea how to dress a summer baby- probably not a wool sweater though huh?  So mine will have to be a titch bigger in the 6-9 I guess.  Hope I can squeeze this out of 2 skeins.

I came across this felt chocolate bunny that is going in my little guy's basket, since he's far to young for candy and more involved toys. For older kids, those flip activity/coloring books are also great. Or you can make home made play-doh or popsicle stick puzzles

Thanks for the ideas, guys.  We have some ADORABLE finger puppets that they got in last year's basket!  My oldest would revolt if there was a "fake" chocolate bunny in the mix, but my youngest might think it's uber cool.  That looks like something that I could whip out in no time.  And those popsicle stick puzzles are awesome!

 

You guys are the best.  Seriously.

Hi everyone-

1. Knit baby hat(s)

2. Sand down and paint Dd's bed.

3. Sand down and paint Dd's dresser.

4. Finish UFO knit blanket.

5. Lavender satchels for when we move.

6. Quilt for Dd

7. Photo frames for Dd's room

8. Household organizer binder

9. Retouch the dresser I repainted for our room.

10. Snowy balloon ornaments (for Christmas)

11, 12, 13. Wedding invitation ornaments (we are going to three weddings this year)

14. Flower girl dresses for my cousins wedding

15. Christmas cards

16. Fabric knitting basket

17. Fabric baskets for linen closet

18. Play food for Dd (hopefully before March, but if not before Christmas)

19. Build play kitchen for Dd.

20. Cloth napkins

21. Christmas door wreath

22. Ruffle shower curtain

23. Lace skirt for me

24.'Sadie' dress for Dd.

Here I am feeling bad that I haven't finished anything yet... this quilt is taking ages, mostly because I feel being interrupted by  house-moving stuff. But hopefully by the end of today I'll be able to tick off "Paint DD's room". Maybe even "Paint living room" as well, although I doubt it... but one can dream.

 

I think I'm going to add "Finish planting out veggie bed and flower garden" to my list, as well. Garden work is never-ending, but at least that's one concrete thing I can achieve... when all the pots are empty of seedlings, I'll consider that done.


If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

I'm doing crayon wallets for mine. I was going to do it for birthdays but thought it would be a bit mean to have my middle wait till November to get hers while her siblings got them in Jan/Feb. I could see some arguments happening there! I'm also doing the washcloths for the baskets for the same reason. I'm thinking of doing some play silks for the baby since the only ones I have are in pinks and purples, which my husband informs me are "girl" colors.

 

addi- welcome! Hope you don't mind me shortening your name, I'm usually typing with at least 1 if not more children in my lap.

 

I just finished the last of the project bags I had cut out. Now on to finishing the pink cammie dresses, DS's pants, ice the cake and make signs :) I'm getting so excited!

Made some star garlands today!

 

I think these will be part of a Christmas present but not sure.They may end up being part of our Christmas decor.I'm torn about adding Christmas gifts to my list.If I add all the Christmas gifts that I need to make it will take up my whole 52 but I like the motivation.
