So many fun things!  The soup, crochet squares (so many ends!), tiny pincushions, and cute robots!

#4  Last year I made strings of paper hearts for Valentine decorations, which I hang from the ceiling.  Today I used some leftover satin to make a few more, with some extra flash.  Now I just need to get them hung up.

AIMR -- The organza was a spool of ribbon, so the edges were already finished, and I melted the cut ends.  Otherwise I would've gone crazy.

I am not a stitcher or paper-crafter, so I admire all you craftsters who are.  You guys have made some great stuff.

#3  The introductory description said our 'thing' could be organizational.  I'm going with that today.  I sorted through piles of pencils, crayons, erasers, and colored pencils.  And these are what's going to a homeless shelter or women's crisis center.  (And I'm still keeping more than I probably should!)

Thing #2

6 organza ribbon flowers.  These will be part of a bigger project.  I'm not sure if starting them on the machine actually made them any faster, because I still had to finish them by hand.  (Here they're sitting on my sketch.)

Thing #1!  Yea!

Saw this idea somewhere on the internets.  Two paper doilies, decorated with gel pen, stitched together by machine, with candy inside.  I did these for some of my friends.  They're supposed to easily rip open.

Now if I understood correctly, post each 'thing' on this thread as it gets made.  But also add to my 'list' earlier in the thread where I joined in.  Right?

I'm going to give it a try!  Gathering ideas now.  My posting on the weekends will be pretty shabby.  And I'll eventually figure out the method of posting with the lists.  But it'll be fun.

Been working on this shawl in little chunks for ... a while.  But it didn't use nearly as much yarn as I expected.  Now I just need a shawl clip so I can give them to a sweet, older lady in my neighborhood.  Don't think I have anything in my stash to make that though.

FYI  It's the free pyttipanna shawl pattern with some fudging and modifications.

I received from emilywilde!  She chose honeycomb from my list.  And how clever to use a knit honeycomb cable for the body.  And the cute, little, silver bees were from her stash!

This is my first dotee with one of these serene faces.  I really love the contented peace they portray.  Glad I finally have one to watch over my crafting bench.

Thank you emilywilde!

That's nice, edelC.

I haven't done much destashing since the kids got out of school for the summer.  But I finally got around to a project that I needed their help for.  I pulled everything out of our family craft cupboard.  I've been putting stuff in there for years, thinking the kids could make things with all the bits and bobs.  But they don't really look in there.  So this morning I pulled everything out and spread it on the floor.  

They have been making stuff all day!

I'm going to start sorting through what's left and decide what goes back in.  I plan on keeping less than half.

Ludi, that's fabulous!  And crochet (among other crafts) can be very meditative.

I was just at the post office sending my dotee.  And when I got home I had just received my dotee from bec99!  (Instant karma!)  I opened the package, and we all squealed.  She made me a sushi dotee!  He's got ginger and wasabi, and the tail is made from white bugle beads that remind me of rice.

My daughters grabbed it right away to show off to everyone in the family.  And now I'm hungry for sushi.  It's a good thing he's so cute....

Sarasmile, you did a great job on your first dotee.  The dynamic shape of the tail looks like she just flicked some water off it, and the droplets are catching the sunlight breaking it into rainbows.

Sharalee, come back when you can!

I received from blupaisan today, and I was amazed she actually chose the angler fish from my list!  And she modeled it spot on!

It's being held by a mermaid (also on my list) like it's a pet.  I don't know that I would want to cuddle one of those!  And it came in the cutest packaging, like it was part of a collection sold at a store (similar to an equine variety of toy).

Here she is with her angler hat on.  And you can see the stiffened fabric and string that make her tail.

blupaisan, how in the world did you make that angler?!  His teeth look like they're tiny, very sharp thorns.
