Ya know what I love about craft-alongs?  The accountability.

I may not get through even half of my 50 things for 2010 (have thought up less than 30 so far...) but at least I'm making a list and trying to get through it.  Plus, maybe I'll get some WIP-bustin' done, so I can cross those lingering half done items off of my list!  Tongue

And the fabrics I get to go through...there are around 50 20-gallon containers with everything imaginable, the person they came from has sari fabric, batik fabrics, silks, cottons, etc from around the world and I'm not passing it up, just trying to avoid, 'You said you were trying to cut down on your stash.' drama.  Tongue

WOW!!! so jealous.  I would love to help you use up some of this fabric!

Strange question:

Does anyone else ever wish they could craft while soaking in the bath tub? Or: Does anyone successfully craft in the tub?

I like taking baths, but I get bored.  What do I do when I'm bored? Craft.  See the problem? lol

I've never been able to craft in the tub (but that WOULD be heavenly). I DO read craft magazines and books in the tub. Inevitably, I hop out to start a project...

I don't craft in the tub, but I plan things in the tub. Sometimes I take a pen and paper and make rough sketches of something I want to make. Although sometimes I accidentally destroy my sketch. Tongue

This is not problem for me because I don't take baths.  I much prefer showers, and I don't know when the last time I took a bath was.

What about braiding plastic strips, as in reusing grocery bags?  That wouldn't be destroyed by water! Cheesy

I agree--at least with a list, you can at least see some progress!  I keep seeing all of the beautiful items and keep adding to my "off-record" list!  I think I am going to sneak over to my list and change it up a bit...I have made a conscious-decision to let my very very old WIPS go...there is a reason they are not done yet, so instead of being miserable one more year, I am unraveling the yarns, cutting up the fabrics, etc.  no more guilt over icky wips for me!!
