dulcetI 4 skeins is still a big dent even without finishing an entire box. Good job.

I just finished up a project I started years ago then lost in moving and the ensuing craft room chaos that is my space. Why did I have so many googly eyes in my stash? Well I have no idea but somehow it happened. The frame is made out of cardboard wrapped in fabric and is a bit wonky, oh well. It is inspired by this project http://adiamondinthestuff.com/2011/08/googly-eye-halloween-frame.html I found via pinterest.

Wile E Songdog I really like the blue your partner picked.

Bushbaby your partner did an excellent first time project.

I received my prayer flags a day early! All are things I want to remind my self to do/think this year. My partner said she's not entirely happy with them but I still like them.

Lovely shawl! It looks very soft, and the color is wonderful.

I joined the use what you have swap so I have been looking at my stash even more and oh boy I need to figure out a organizing system.

I made some prayer flags for the fake swap craftalong. I had envisioned fancy embroidered elaborate flags but I remembered that I am not the biggest fan of embroidering so instead went a simpler route. Most everything is stamped, I have had most of these stamps for years and this project was the first time I have used many of them. All the flags are things/goals I want to do this year.

Nice hat's that1girl!

While sorting my fabric I found a yard of dogs doing yoga that I had forgotten all about. Given the theme I made some bags for my exercise matts. I didn't have enough to make a strap for the second one so I grabbed some random fabric sitting by my desk and braided a cord for a drawstring.

I saw an idea on pinterest for yarn scraps, they rolled the yarn into tiny balls then arranged them in a shadow box as wall art.

Today I cleared out a small bag of barretts and a little bit of beads from my stash. Everything is for the conservation booth at work, the feathers are from our lesser flamingos.

It sounds (and looks) like everyone is being very productive!

trinalocakary ~ your crowns look so fun! I have had the sideways photo problem too.

Always ~ great organizing! The cowl looks very warm.

As I have been sorting I realized I have a lot of fabric things because my dogs have torn but I can't bear to throw anything away so they are all sitting in my craft room instead of the landfill. I decided to make a torn up robe into bath mats to avoid standing on cold tile after the shower. I made two but only took a picture of one. Kind of a boring project but it was nice to get something made. I was going to stencil them but on a test it didn't look good (they're terry cloth) so they are plain for now. Oh look it's Phantom's nose, the dog who tore up the robe  Roll Eyes



I finished a cowl the other day because apparently I think I live in a climate where I need a closet full of pretty cold weather gear and not southwest GA. I rather love it regardless if I will get to wear it more then one day a year. It's made out of some apparel fabric that is fuzzy on one side and a microsuede type material on the other.

Great projects so far! The pot holders are hilarious. I organized about a quarter or so of my fabric stash the past few days. I saw this idea on Pinterest and have been on a look out for a cheap filing cabinet at the thrift shops for over a year. Imagine my excitement when I saw these filing drawers in my neighbors trash.



I finished the cowl I was working on. I picked the pattern because it was called "3 hour cowl" but it took me well over 3 hours  Roll Eyes I love the colors of the yarn, unfortunately it is just red heart super saver so not the softest to wear.



I am a zookeeper and my main critter is a Bacterian camel named Bogart. So when I saw a adorable camel pattern on ravelry I had to make one. I want to make another one whenever I find my f hook because I am not happy with how loose the stitches are.



Now if I can just stay this motivated for the rest of the year.

That is a great idea about the clothes pins!

I finished my $5 in Paris sweater http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/5-in-paris this weekend. It was originally this project http://www.ravelry.com/projects/lady4feet/lantern-pullover and it looked awful on me!

It was a very simple pattern and I made so many mistakes. But in my defense I was doing a fair amount of drinking and knitting, two wonderful pasttimes that do not mix well. Despite the mistakes and wishing I would have made it a bit longer I really like it.

 


A bit truer to color

Great hoops!

My partner came threw on her TM patches! Set around my geek love theme; two Doctor Who patches, Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, Goonies, and Harry Potter. And while I have edited this crazy photo three different times it still wont rotate so just tilt your head instead  Wink




(or get a mod to do it since I hate to twist my neck! Grin)

I have the opposite reaction to holiday themed fabric! I am normally relieved because I always feel like my options are limited on what I can use it on/with.

...

I decided to tackle the clutter on my counters today and made a paper bag holder. It's just a used flat rate shipping box I cut up and glued some fabric to. Nothing fancy but my counters are clear and I'm happy.



I used up some little bits on some owls, you know those small scraps but we still have to save them Wink
