Alwaysinmyroom,  Thanks for the encouragement.  Writing it down was actually rather cathartic.  Rather than looking at the giant stack of stuff and then deciding to do nothing, I have it organized and I actually got a few things done today.  Yay!

If it's a big enough camera, can it add 100?

 They're cute, Ostera. I like the blue and brown fabrics. Isn't it fun to have nice little purse accessories? How about a little drawstring bag for those sunglasses?

Now finish your quilt--don't let it become a WIP for 2011!!!

...I have been googling and researching and keeping track of all the tips and ideas I can find on the 'paper' towels.  There are some adorable ones here on Craftster, I even saw some that snap together so you can keep them on the roll like regular paper towels.  If I find any incredible links I will post here!  Welcome to the board!

I LOVE the un-paper towels I received in the Frugal Living Swap. My partner and I discussed snaps and velcro, but decided that a)they might scratch my table and b) I don't really want to sit and snap or velcro after I wash them (I'm so lazy). So, my partner serged a stack of flannel towels and wrapped them around a PVC pipe. I dropped that onto my paper towel holder, and, voila! They are the best ever!!!

I am so glad you posted!  Can you tell me more about the un-paper towels?  Are they just two layers of flannel serged at the edges, or is ther some batting or something in between?  Are they flannel on both sides?  How absorbent are they, and are they good for like wiping down the table?

Can you tell this has been on my mind?  lol!

The ones that I have are double sided flannel. They are super absorbent. I only use one or two a day. After I wipe my kids face, I rinse it, then wash counters, tables, whatever. I DO still have paper towels, but I really don't use them very often now.

I know that onegroovyday made some out of flannel on one side and microfibre on the other, and I'm pretty sure they work great, too!

Sorry for the double post, but I FINALLY finished something else off my list. I have a break of 2 weeks until I get my next swap partner, so I turned to my list for inspiration.
I finished up this little pants/tunic set for Marley today. There is also a hat in the pattern, which I may or may not make. I love this apple fabric, and bought it with this pattern in mind. I feel like an apple-y hat might be a little much though. I'm also still deciding if it needs some ric rac (doesn't everything?) OR some little felt apple pockets on the tunic. I didn't do the ruffles that were supposed to be on the bottom and bust of the shirt and on the hem of the pants. It just didn't seem to work.  I'm also still struggling with the bias tape arm holes. That stuff is so hard to work with!
Anyway, c/c welcome. Hopefully I can get an action shot tomorrow!
