I love this craftalong!  So many inspiring items to see.
 I also love being able to have a list for the year.  There is just something so satisfying about being able to mark an item as completed.
Here are a few of my newest items:
I should of done this one 5 years ago.  My desk is usable now that I have desk organizers to keep everything in check.  I made them from cereal boxes and scrapbooking paper. Along the same lines I made a pen holder with a snap and elastic to be able to use it on spiral bound notebooks.

a bunch of sunglasses holders for gifts and swaps I used this tutorial: http://threadridinghood.com/wordpress/made-by-me-monday-sunny-glasses-case-tutorial-free-printable-pattern/
I love this pattern. It uses plastic canvas as lining to make them sturdy and give more protection.  Next a  Vinyl window zipper pouch to store my embroidery in:

and a project that took ages to complete:  A new coat for my daughter.  I used the Jalie Lined Parka 2008 pattern.  The hat looks weird in the picture because she is wearing 2 hats- but normally it fits well.

Wow, I like everything Plaidpineapple.
I love the idea of the window in the pouch.
The new coat is fantastic. What kind of fabric did you use and where did you find it?

I need to make some of those desk organizers!  I have stuff EVERYWHERE on my craft desk.  The jacket turned out great and I really like the sunglasses holders.

I love that winter coat!  I don't know why, but it never occurred to me that one could make their own... totally adding that to my growing To Sew list!

Last week, I received some chrysocolla pendants that were ordered online.  Here's one of the necklaces I made using some old wood beads.  I didn't have fine enough cord to add some smaller chrysocolla beads in with the wood so once I have my hands on some better stuff, I'm going to cut this one up and restart.  But in the meantime, here's what it is:

I had to look up chrysocolla. It's a beautiful stone and so is your necklace. It will be even better with blue chrysocolla beads.
