The felt letters and shapes are for teachers and students to use on felt or flannel boards when doing word work.  They're also relatively cheap, durable, washable, and will last quite awhile if not intentionally abused. Felt and flannel will stick to each other without adhesive because of their natural nap, yet be easily removed for reuse. The fun foam won't stick to anything without adhesive, but can be used for many word and alphabet activities as is or can have magnets added to the back to use on magnetic surfaces such as white boards, file cabinets, teacher's desks, etc. Most children are a combination of visual and tactial learners, so giving them tools they can manipulate helps them learn more quickly and more thoroughly. End of reading specialist lecture.  Grin 

Flannel boards with felt letters were a standard when I was growing up...in the dark ages. Roll Eyes It's a great low-tech and very fun way to play. Shapes are also a good addition...you can make all kinds of pictures out of circles, squares, rectanges, triangles...etc.

There was one with shapes at my dentist office when I was a kid, I loved it! I use to get so excited when we had to go to the dentist, lol.

kbrison I really like the kennel cushions, I bet the multi colors help hide a lot of hair/dirt. I really like the red/orange/black color combo, reminds me of fire.

I have been gathering inspiration for a project idea, fingers crossed the finished product will live up to the vision.

I kept finding myself going "oh I want to make that" while stalking pinterest but then remembered I have to shop from my stash.

Here in the southeast our weather has been wet and dreary which makes me long to be in the pacific north west. If I have to deal with overcast then I should at least be somewhere I want to be *sigh* maybe someday.

On a crafty note I am going to be late on my pinterest swap, and I am changing my project. As I was drafting a pattern for a clutch I realized that I don't really use clutches because if I only carry my phone and wallet I just stick them in my pockets so a larger bag is needed to be used on a regular basis by me.

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.

I am feeling a bit under the weather so partner stalking fits in perfectly with my lay about all day plan.

I am excited for partners! I am glad I decided to sign up for this swap when it opened instead of thinking about it like I was going to do.

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.
