You're very welcome, Gozer! I already have four ideas, so I think it may be really easy to craft for you.

Lindy, my dh thinks I'm even crazier than usual because of you. After seeing your bee pendant, I thought how cool it would be to put any insect under resin. Then as we were leaving our investment advisor's office today, I saw a dead cicada in perfect condition. Now I just need to find something the right size to use as a mold.  Grin

Love the Double Celtic Twist handle, but then I adore most things Celtic.

Yah, Tolkien! That book cover is gorgeous.

Cut some more pixel quilt block pieces today, so I may be making coasters soon, too. Lots of leftover strips so was even thinking about placemats, mug rugs, journal covers, or pouches.

I am getting ready to take pictures of the stars I made for kbrison...hey, woman...don't you have enough of them already to make your quilt?  I am running out of star ideas...NOT...there are so many quilt blocks for stars that you could make star quilts for your whole town! Grin

I'm making it queen-size, so I need 49-64 depending upon what sashing I use.  Grin Feel free to duplicate star designs and fabric. I'm fine with repeats.

And AIMR, I just kept squealing at each new star. Love them all, especially the Amish Star.

Sloth, that rainbow quilt is wonderful! Can't believe how quickly it came together for you and that you've already finished quilting it.

Nothing to show, but I've destashed about 26 yards of fabric this month. Sent 12+ yards to my partner in the Stash Swap. Then one of the swappers was flaked on, so I just sent her 13+ yards today in an angel package. Also cleared out 6 garden flags from my teaching supplies (2 to a fundraiser and 4 in the angel package), a variety of erasers (some I had intended to carve as stamps but never got around to doing and some from my teaching supplies), 10 sewing bobbins, some thread, several bags of doll eyes, several long hot glue sticks, and scrapbook papers and embellishments (some to the first stash swap package and some to 4-H camp). Wish I could say that it's made a huge difference in my stash, but in all honesty even I can't see much change.  Sad

Love those blue socks! And I like the addition of rickrack to the doll dresses. It's a simple change, but it really kicks the outfits up a notch.

Love that quote from Hermione about reading! Like your embellishments much better than the more common Teesha Moore patches - - fits my need for neatness.  Wink

Just got back today from our family reunion. Had a wonderful time on the river, but sure did miss my laptop!

Wulf, I used poly pellets by Fiber-Fil for the bean bag chair. They're generally used to give weight to dolls and stuffed animals but they gave the chair the flexibility and squishiness you would expect from the pellets in a real bean bag chair plus they're washable and can even be put in the dryer on low heat.

solarray, you could probably donate some paper to a grade school.  I'm sure they could find good uses for it.

High school or middle school art departments, scout troops, 4-H clubs, senior citizen centers, church youth groups, etc. Teach papercrafting classes, join the Givers vs. Needers Swap that's suppose to open soon.

Warning: Photo bomb coming! I didn't know a medium flat rate box could hold so much, but puamelia really stuffed in the goodies.
Fabric

Sea turtles carved from coconut shells

Two four-square quilt blocks

Yarn

Paper and vellum for scrapbooking and origami plus two stamps from Israel!

Two blank board books that I already have plans for

Zippers, ribbon, and other trims

Even more ribbons and laces

Buttons, charms, eyes for poppets, sea shells, paper ephemera, and three teeny, tiny origami cranes

Ribbons from Victoria's Secret & Neiman Marcus, snowflake, tiny pacifiers on a ribbon, floral pieces, and pink "angels' wings for paper-making

Thanks so very much, puamelia! It's an awesome stash!

Glad you and hubby are okay, even if his truck and your house weren't so fortunate. Hot and humid usually goes hand-in-hand with severe thunderstorms, hail, and/or tornadoes here.

Working on the next pixel block ... blue this time.
