I have focused on completing projects over the past three months, and not bringing home new ones! Here are some pictures of my three biggest projects. I have also finished up or gotten rid of a number of smaller things that have been sitting around my sewing room.
Started on this probably a year and a half ago, before I was even pregnant. This project was inspired by a similar book my mom made when I was a toddler. It includes pages made by Mom and Melody, as a swap, since Melody is also working on one.
A sample of some of the pages:

This project was acquired about two months after we got married. It was free in front of a house when we were out walking one day! I had already started sanding before remembering to take a picture, but the highchair was in very good condition when we got it. I just really wanted it to be in the soft aqua/robin's egg color that we have in our house.
It was a lot of work painting all those rungs! Not enough to deter me from acquiring a coffee table to paint, as my next project, though!
Dad, this one's for you--look at those rice puffs!
And this is the last one for now--turning a stack of squares and collected bits of fabric into a picnic quilt. I don't even know how many years ago I started this one, but I'm guessing at least eight!
I have 109 different fabrics represented in this quilt, and not a single repeat within the collection of squares (I did use the monogram and border fabrics more than once.)
Just big enough for a play area!
