Dungarees, maps and pirate-treasure

Forgive me, vast audience, for I have sinned. It has been four months since my last blog post. I have been a busy bee for the last few months with non-craft things, and have only been getting little bits done in my Happy Room.

I finished the dungarees, but the top is too small. Note to self: measure, and do a mock-up. (Yeah right. That's a pair of lessons I never learn).

They're reversible, and I really like the simple appliqué, so I'll definitely put some effort into salvaging them.

I made a Map to go with Backpack for each of the kids for Christmas. I'm glad I did it, but they haven't taken as much notice of it as I'd like. There's no accounting for kids :) I considered a few options, and in the end I decided to get a local t-shirt printing place to print my drawings. I did four different maps, then sewed them together with a padding between. Lining them up was a pain in the face, but I got it in the end.

 (Yes, that's a Pathfinder rulebook and a pile of dice in the background).

I'm working on a new project that may end up being epic. It starts with a ship's steering wheel for my kids' bedroom wall, and hopefully ends in an epic treasure hunt. I'd love to hear any suggestions for what they should find in the treasure chest at the end.

I'm about to make some changes to my hosting setup, hopefully you won't notice a thing, but I know how many of you are waiting with baited breath for my every update (*cough*) so I wanted to give you a heads-up.
