A2JC4life...I cannot remember the local center that I donate them to.!?  Huh
They meet once a month for a stitch-in for them or I give them to another lady at the knit guild I go to if I can't  make the meeting. =]  They treat us real nice w/coffee, tea, soda and water and treats.  =]

Back from my wonderful scrappy/journalling weekend.  Got one sis onto Craftster: flutterby14 and the other sis into her junque journal!!  And I completed a set of crocheted potholders over the weekend, too. =]  Also got to catchup on chickflicks...*what fun*



now to catch up here, do some chores, mail a pkg. out to bubblegum_phoenix, do some chores, craft, cook, ....you get the idea...=]

Six pages of list? wow...I better see you posting projects like mad over on the 50 projects! Cheesy

I went through my ribbons draws and decided that I did not need to keep the EMPTY spools "just in case"...I know my hubby is putting out the recycle today, and I am having anxiety that I will think of something to make from them...seriously, empty spools? Cheesy

lol! you sound like me!   a while back we went on a clean sweep of the house, and I had to close my eyes a few times while watching hubby pick up stuff and chuck it in the recycling or trash... And I went through my craft room and needed to shake my head a few times too.... There was a bag I'd left down there of stuff that I didn't need/want and I went to get it out of the house this weekend... It took all of me to not open it up and sift through it.... I will not be on Hoarders.  I will not be on Hoarders.  I will not be on Hoarders!

Catchy! Someone should make a cross-stitch sampler with this phrase! Cheesy

Can I declare myself a destash master? No? Oh well.
I made a drop spindle (ahem, a ghetto one) from items around my house. No really, I used a coconut.  Roll Eyes
And I made newspaper yarn with it.

If anyone is curious how I made it, check my blog (in my sig) I posted the tutorial.  Grin

Now I need to decorate it. Dear sun, please come out for 5 minutes so I can spray paint this coconut. Thanks.

hahah thanks! I'm not gonna lie, I've never used a spindle before so I have no idea if it works right. But I was surprised [ahem, VERY surprised] that it works so well. It's definitely inspired me to try out some more projects. And spray paint it so it's not so ugly.  Roll Eyes

I'm not sure what I'm going to make with the newspaper yarn. I was reading about it for weeks before I finally decided to make it. Supposedly its surprisingly strong. But I'm not sure, anyone made it before? I'd love to see some projects.

I tried to search for "coconut" to see if anyone tried this--uh, nope--you are the only one! ha ha
