girl, you are way neater than I am! Cheesy  I just scratch right through it---my notebooks are a hot mess!  I have post its, scraps, samples, paint chips, paperclips, highlighter, etc. all over my handwritten lists! Cheesy

I do...It blends right in...maremare also told us how to join short pieces together by making a hole in one piece and slipping another piece in...I forget exactly but no bumpy knots or ends!

I love your list Alvia!!  So full of a variety projects, which I love!

I try to keep my list flexible enough to add items I see and want to make right now!  I use my list to focus, but even the most organized me has to be free to do whatever I want!  Crafting is therapy for me...I might be in a bad mood once I begin, but after a few minutes, the stress of the day melts away!

I think most people here do have lists...it is scientifically proven that more gets accomplished when you have a list than when you do not...like dieting, getting promoted, etc. I would bet that more projects get done by list makers than not...but some people do just fine without a list and totally throw that finding out the window! Cheesy

Whatever works for you...and if it is not working for you, change it...

Right after I posted that, I thought that maybe I could estimate by counting all the spots where I needed a bead and adding about 25 or so more...I would hate to get to the last round and run out of beads! Cheesy

Can't wait to see what you do next!

If I don't find it this weekend, I am going to order it online...what can people be making with all of it?  I just need about 3/4yard!!!!!! grrrrr

Alvia--I sent you a PM explaining that you can join the craftalong ANYTIME!! Cheesy

I make a huge list, then as I complete each item, I number it and post it with a thumbnail pic...you can see my list if you click on my signature line...

I carry around a print out of that list and write down ideas or cross off stuff and then about once a month, I update it on my list here...

at the end of the year, I splurge and print the entire thing in color---it is awesome to have a record of everything in one spot!  My lists then go into my notebook where I also keep my ATC's--it is sort of like a brag book for family, friends, and ME! Cheesy

Brackish Potato--what a tremendous accomplishment in the middle stashing!  Guess we'll be seeing you in your bikini this summer! Cheesy

Also, letting go of useable but no longer loved paper is awesome!

lillianpearl--I know that a great tutorial was posted on making t-shirt yarn very very easily...I did mine by hand and just about killed myself...the tutorial used a rotary cutter and is super fast!

I was just wondering because I did a t-shirt rug and it took 4 adult t-shirts...but I did cut the strips rather large...
