This might be ridiculous, but I'm counting making this blanket fort for my thing today. It's formed out of a couch, futon, upside-down chairs, two blankets on the top, and lots of pillows and blankets inside! Also twinkly lights.





It's the perfect place to cuddle up on a cold, snowy day!

Thanks everyone for the comments on my hoop! I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but there are 3 different reds making the lattice. It was fun to do!



I received an adorable little mixed media art piece from geekgirl1000100. It's one of my favorite birds, the kingfisher!



Thanks again geekgirl, it's hanging right by the window in my craft room.

Origami's a great idea for this craftalong! I might try that for one of my things.

I finally got a picture of my thing for day 8 - sixteen half-pints of grapefruit marmalade! I actually had to re-do them yesterday because they were too syrupy. Now I'm afraid they might be too sugary? Marmalade is hard! They're pretty anyway.

dulcet, I want to see a little totoro rainbow! Very cute projects.

Still haven't gotten a picture of yesterday's thing, because I had to re-do it today. Grrr... marmalade wouldn't set... anyway I think it's fixed now, so I'll get the pic tomorrow.

Besides fixing the marmalade today, I cut 47 more triangles for my quilt! After having this project on my to-do list for such a long time, now that I've started it's full speed ahead!

I'm jumping back into this thread! I love little things, and birds. I did this lattice cardinal for the OTT Bird 2 swap.

Thing for today was cutting triangle pieces for a quilt that I've been planning for... at least a year! I cut up 5 fat quarters and got 9 pieces from each, for a total of 45. Only 305 to go! Tongue

It wasn't a huge destashing project, but I made an ornament out of Christmas cards that we received for the holidays. If anyone else doesn't like to just toss the cards they get, this is a good way to keep them around in a more useful way! This is the third year I've done this with our cards, so I'm going put up the previous ornaments too, with links to the general how-tos in case they inspire anyone. Smiley

This year, I modified this tutorial to make it hang from a corner.



Last year, I used this idea, but with a different shape, obviously.



And the first year, which I think is still my favorite, I made a ball like this.

dulcet, your valentine decorations look very pretty! Will you share a picture after you put them up?

Thing 6 is a page from a post card coloring book that my partner put in my stocking this year. The details are so itty bitty that it was hard to keep the pencils sharp enough! It was pretty fun to just put on headphones and a long podcast and just get in the zone with it.

AoC, I've heard of wreck this journal, and it does sound fun! I'd love to see more of your pages if you finish them this month.

My thing for the 5th is altering this cute ipod case that MissingWillow made for me in the HP Holiday swap.  It's been on my to-do list for a while, and all it needed was a little extension. I ripped a bit of seam, sewed in 4 pieces of the black fabric (outside and lining) and extended the padding, then sewed it back up. Pretty simple fix! Before and after:

Lovely socks, cmouse!

My thing for today is a calendar page that I can use to keep track of the fish I'm looking after for a few months. They have a schedule of things that need to happen with their tanks, like adding/changing water, cleaning, and fertilizing the plants, so this will make sure I don't forget what I already did.

I drew out the grid with my quilting ruler, and doodled with copic markers.
