Small Projects Sew-Along

I'm not going to lie.  New Blogger is freaking me out.  This is my first time using it, and I'm not sure how it'll turn out.  Amanda Jean is having a small projects sew-along for the month of May.  The button should be on my sidebar (if I can figure out how to get it there).  We're supposed to make a list and then post pics of what we have done in her flickr group.  So here's my list -- some photographed, some not.  And, in no particular order (except the Prom dress is of paramount importance).

1.  Prom Dress -- the silver one, but with sleeves added.  Somehow.

2.  Little Miss Shabby's embroidery squares from last year.  (Just the embroidery, not the whole quilt).
3.  Pajama pants for boy 2 (times two).
4.  Corduroy bag.
5.  Going Coastal bag.
6.  Throw pillows for my bed.
7.  Throw pillows for my mama's bed.

Now, I could probably go on and on, but I don't want to overwhelm myself.  (Yes, look at the sidebar -- that ship has sailed.  I know.  I meant in the small-projects department.)  And, besides, I have to keep my list shorter than Amanda Jean's.  For once.  So, in the last-but-not-least category, I give you: 

8.  My first pair of knitted socks.  Pink and green camo-ish.  One down, one to go.  Then maybe, just maybe I can get to the other ones.  (I'm only showing two extra sock balls, but I really have 4.)
If I start the socks now, maybe they'll be done in time for NEXT winter.  Connecticut is so much colder than Texas.  Shocker, right?  :)  I hope you join in and finish up some of your smaller projects hanging around.

Glad I could talk to you today. Can't wait to see the Prom dress-you must only have a few weeks for that one!
