I only found this DeStash-along at the end of last month and I don't think I've posted in here before.  I accidentally matched up a couple of the challenges this month.
Color: Turquoise and Challenge 1 (scrappy projects)

Dolphin dishcloth

and a couple of Freeze Pop holders

A scrappy project and one for Challenge 2 (at least I think it will be a gift) - a Christmas stocking.

Prompt:  July - Midnight Opening
Team: Randomizer
Event: Paperology
Bonus Points: UFO!!
Project Name: Baby Monster
Project Link: NA
Brief Description: This baby monster was started for the Monster Swap back in the spring? I think? I figured out when I started that all the detail I had to put into him would take much longer than I had time for! So I abandoned him until now! Now here he is all done! Cheesy He is done on 9x12 arches hot pressed water colour paper, 140 lbs.  I used water colour pallet, water colour crayon, prisma colours, charcoal and ink.

So here is something I made that actually fits the map theme \o/ My first de-stashing project Smiley

Here's a link to a more detailed description of the process and materials.

This is one of those never-ending projects, a crash landed UFO (UnFinished Object) that finally got finished! I'm really happy Smiley

This is part of DeStash-along 2014 so I'll list the materials.

At least four years ago a friend brought the plaster frame to me because it was broken and apparently could not be fixed. You can see the cracs on the corners where the plaster had cracked. The wooden frame beneath the plaster was a bit loose but otherwise fine, so I accepted the frame. I knew instantly that I'd want to use it to make a jewelry holder.

Other materials:
the sea chart I got from someone, who said it was out of date and too worn and torn to be used, but that she thought I might think of something to do with it. Sea chart is kind of like a map and maps are just awesome! So I said yes even though I had no idea what I would make of it (earlier I've used it for cards and there's still some left).
The lace is leftover from a steampunk style skirt I made. It was the exact right lenght for this project! No leftovers \o/
The hooks I had bought for my kitchen. Screwing them on the board beneath my top cupboards proved to be so difficult that I decided one was enough. These three have been waiting for a new purpose for two years.
Corkboard I got through a recycling group on Facebook.
Oaints: green I already had. The gold and glitter I had to buy. They are the only things I bought for this!
Last week when I decided to finally finish this project I intended to go buy some kind of lace and hooks and other stuff, but then I found the DeStash-along and decided to make do with what I had at home. I'm really glad I did, because I didn't need to wait for a chance to go to the stores and I was able to put these materials in use instead of just storing them.

The frame without jewelry. And in this photo you can see that the hooks are not straight, but it doesn't matter as I only noticed it in this photo.

The process:
I glued the loose corners and painted the frame first with green, then applied gold to highlight the ornaments and last I added some glitter.
I re-positioned the wire in the back. (The frame used to be horizontal.)
I cut the cork board and glued the chart on it. And the lace on the chart. Then glued the cork board behind the frame. It was the exact right thickness.
Then I screwed the hooks through the cork board (lot easier than screwing them on the kitchen board Cheesy ). The difficult part was cutting the extra length off of the screws so they wouldn't scratch the wall. i tried cutting them and sawing them but finally had to ask for help.

A picture of one of the cracks. I think they just add to the frame and make it more interesting. There's actually a small piece missing from one corner (the edges of the crack had broken off), but I just painted it over and now you can hardly notice it. This is also a detail of the paint job.

It's hard to understand how it took four years to finish something that was so easy to explain, but I suppose I just needed the time to think through different solutions while I focused on other things.

Most of the jewerly is also my designs. (Although you can't really see them.)

Woot! I received from smileyyogini, and wow did she spoil me! Cheesy

Very first thing I noticed when I opened the box was this guy. I'd mentioned in my questionnaire that I want to cosplay as Kobato someday, so she crocheted an awesome Ioryogi for me!

There was also a IoryogiBag for carrying project around in, which will be perfect for my knitting projects because...

It came with a matching needle roll! Woot!

There's also a side pocket with a little Ioryogi on the side. Cheesy

Last but definitely not least is this cute Kyubey hoopla. My hoopla wall is having technical difficulties, so no action shots unfortunately, but it's definitely loved and will go up once I get that sorted.

Thank you very much for the awesomeness smileyyogini!

I haven't sewn in a while, so I decided to make this apron.  (Especially since my husband just built me a sewing cabinet/crafting station!)  The apron is supposed to be a gift, but I might keep it >.<

The pattern is from One Yard Wonders.

Front: 8 Pockets: 2 small pockets, 3 large pockets, 1 medium pocket, and 2 extra large pockets

Back: TARDIS interior theme fabric


Closeup of the TARDIS:

My sewing machine foot is having issues and I'm crap at sewing straight lines:

Pocket interior - Interfacing for durability and strength

The pattern I used had me sew the front and back of the apron *before* the pockets.  I didn't notice this design flaw until too late.  However, it *does* provide extra stability to the pockets.  In the future I would probably not sew the front and back together until after the pockets.

I made this bias binding using a bias machine. I only had a single fold tip, so I used it anyway.  This caused an uneven folding of the bias.  Meh....this was the only spot I missed though.

Hi! So yesterday I made these really cool cherry pit dolls and thought it would be fun to put them up on Craftster! They were fun and easy to make and I hope you guys like them. Their heads and bodys are cleaned off cherry pits. The one with brown hair is Lily, the one with black hair and a shorter dress is Chu, and the girl with bat wings is Olivia.  Lily is the smallest, her height is in between 1+1\2 in. and 1+3/4 in.  Olivia is 1+3/4 in. tall and Chu is 2 in. tall. and Olivia's wing span is a little less than three in. Cheesy Cheesy Bye.

Two months ago I had a marathon of "Twin Peaks", I know the show is from 1990 but I never get to watch it until now. I felt in love with every character, it's such a great story! So I wanted to do something related to one of the weirdest scenes from the show, the agent Cooper's dream.

I had some tiny figure from train scales, so I turned a wood box into a diorama and the box top is now the box itself, and added some memorabilia from the show. There are some things missing, like the coffee table and two lamps. The painting is not so good because the figures are so small!

The first picture is for size reference, I hope you like it!
