Isa - sorry, I forgot to reply to you! Unfortunately I don't know of any French conversions :-( I hope you can find something.

Angelorum - lovely hats! And the pictures look an ordinary size to me

I finished the top of my neice's quilt yesterday. Yay! Now I just need to find a fabric for the back and probably the binding as well.

24/52 - a skirt for DD1. Just because she asked me to make her a skirt :-)

25-26/52 - two pairs of corduroy trousers for DD1 because she is growing out of all her winter clothes.

I've found the backing and binding fabric for the quilt and decided how going to quilt it. Now it just needs to happen :-)

Just realized I finished up a few big things at the end of July, and never came here to share.

I recycled a cashmere sweater, and dyed all the resulting yarn a lovely green. This is just one of the skeins, I have 3 more.



37/52


I made myself a swimsuit! It was sort of a wearable muslin, the pattern still needs some tweaking, and I need to figure out a way to keep the bust from getting dragged down in the water, but it's wearable enough for playing in the kiddie section at the water park!



38/52

I made a couple of hair flowers. I recently cut around 9-10" off my hair, and I've been playing with some retro pin-curl 'dos. So I needed some hair flowers to go with the vintage feel



39/52

And I finished this mohair sweater I've been knitting. Kind of a silly thing to finish in the heat of summer, but I'll enjoy it in a few months, hopefully!

27/52 - a ballet bag for DD1 who I starting ballet classes this week. I used the Pink Penguin's lunch bag tutorial

http://ayumills.blogspot.com.au/2010...h-bag.html?m=1

I posted some pics to a local craft group I belong to and the manger of a cafe which also sells local homemade items us asked me to make up a few for them to sell, so that's a bit exciting.

Angelorum, I love the swimmers!

28/52 - a ballet bag for DD2
29-31/52 - tote bags for me and the girls. Oversized for me, half-sized for them.
32/52 - ballet bag for my friend's toddler

I started crochet classes this week too so I have a rather wonky granny square blanket on the go. I'm planning to keep going until it's doll-sized then give it to the girls.

33/52 - a divided tote bag for crochet projects. I'm not very happy with it though. The proportions are weird - long and narrow - and the divider doesn't reach the bottom of the bag. It does the job but I used some of my favourite fabric so I'm a bit peevish.

My granny square blanket it coming along nicely. My teacher figured out what I was doing wrong so it's square now. Yay! I've become a bit addicted.

And, I'm not going to count this as a project but the teaching assistant at DD1's kindy is starting maternity leave this week. We were invited to contribute a small item to a gift basket for her so I've appliqued a couple of singlets.

I spent most of August doing some much needed mending, but I have recently finish a couple of things.

First a dress I started way back in April. It sat in time out for a long time, because it had some fit problems, and the fabric isn't doing quite what I wanted it to, but at least it's wearable now, and very comfy.



37/52

Next, a scarf. The yarn is some handspun I made last year. It has beads, but I think should have gone for higher contrast when picking the beads, you can't really see them unless you look closely.
