Yay a swap package I sent off was finally received so I can share here now.

It was all things Edward Gorey so hence the relative lack of color. My partner is starting a hoopla wall so I had to contribute a little something to it.



My favorite little girl with her scissors.



Then I decided to screen print an image onto some fabric and sewed my first ever tote bag! I think it turned out really well. (Well, I made two while I was at it  Wink)



And I thought it would be fun for her to play a Gorey character so I crocheted her a simple but snuggly striped scarf.

A friend of mine roasts coffee beans and he gave me a bunch of burlap coffee sacks. In exchange for unlimited burlap  Grin I am making him tote bags for his "high buying" customers.

Here are the first two totes that I made - these sacks are fun to play with!

Very cool!  My sis is getting free sacks too.  How hard is it to sew the burlap?  Any tips on how to keep it from shifting as you sew?

sheepblue, I love it all! Very cool.
And, nice job on the bags, texscrapper! I bought a couple of burlap coffee sacks from my local coffee shop to do something with ages ago. One of these days!

Okay, I made some more raygun shadowboxes. I neglected to take a pic of the one with the miniature pistols before I sold it, dang it! But I have pics of two others.

Not the best pics, I took them at the convention, but they'll do. ^^

Mr.Fantastic and I built this today.  Does it count as a finished project, or should I fill it with yarn first? Grin

That's exactly what I want for yarn storage, only I don't yet have enough yarn to justify one that big (or the space in the house to put it  Roll Eyes ) - I need it shrunk, because I need at least 20 shelves though... please tell me you are going to sort your yarn by colour like I want to, so I can live vicariously through you and your rainbow yarn wall?

Alas, sorry, I'm not!  I was thinking about how I was going to arrange it all, but then I remembered how fast my turnover is, so I just started filling it in a way that made sense at the time.  

Here it is filled to about 75% capacity:


Once I get it all the way I want it, I'll take pictures of the whole stash.  (I have other holders, you see ^_-)


Oh!  And those black boxes are all holding scraps.  Two of them have my Bernat Satin / Red Heart Soft / Caron Simply soft scraps, and one has my Bernat Waverly / Vanna's Choice scraps, the others each have one kind of yarn scraps in each, and one box is holding my some of my novelty yarns as the balls are really floppy and I didn't think they'd stack well.

I originally planned to have boxes just in the bottom two rows (so I wouldn't have to crouch down as much), but when we put the thing against the wall, we noticed that it covered up the light switch and the building fire alarm silencer button.  So, I put two of the boxes in the cubbies where those things were (the two in the second row) so that you could easily move the entire contents of that cubby out of the way to access them.  Interestingly, you don't need to remove the box to turn the light on - just bump that box towards the wall. Grin

The boxes from the lower right corner were removed because we needed to put Mr.Fantastic's desk there and it had to be so close that pulling the boxes out would be impossible.  I put some of my longer-term yarn in there. ^_^

I love the Great Wall of Yarn, and I don't even use yarn. It's beautiful.

As promised, here are the TMBG finger puppets. I made two lots, because my son wanted a set, but his don't have faces yet because I have commissions to work on, and while it was just as quick to make 4 puppets as 2, I suck (in a very time consuming manner) at embroidery.
