lapoli...  What exactly is a corn bag?

At my house it's the burlap sack I keep the feed corn in for my deer, but that's probably not everyone's answer.  If I don't feed them on time they try and climb up on the deck.  I suppose I could decorate it.   Grin

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

Will post list later.

Alright, here's my preliminary list, intentionally incomplete so I don't feel pressured if I don't (want to) get around to any particular thing. My projects are coming mostly from my Crafting Inspiration board on Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/ninedays/crafting-inspiration/).

** Means I need it sooner rather than later

- Embroidered silhouettes of the family (all five of us)
- Frame loom (this will probably end up falling more to my husband  Cheesy) **
- Murielle scarf **
- Woven place mats (4) **
- Needle book**
- t-shirt quilt
- Gift for Nani's birthday
- Gift for grandma's birthday (June)
- Paper rose bouquet
- Rag rug (woven on a loom or this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/2138307/)
- Journal/altered journal
- Birthday cards (a dozen or so, to have on hand) **
- Project organizer/caddy (http://pinterest.com/pin/1753476/, or this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367746.0 sans holiday theme)
- Holiday decorations and ornaments (including several Christmas wreaths)
- Shadow puppet theater (http://pinterest.com/pin/1980420/)
- T-shirt yarn (http://pinterest.com/pin/2138370/)
- Boots from an old sweater (http://pinterest.com/pin/2135495/)
- Woven scrap yarn monster (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=313652.0)
- Flowers (http://pinterest.com/pin/2082619/, http://pinterest.com/pin/1950435/)
- Newspaper yarn (http://pinterest.com/pin/1932992/)
- Grow a pair and knit something in the round, finally

I decided to go for the three way scarf next, only i haven't gotten very far because I've had a wonderful time trying to get the gauge right for the yarn I'm using.

And now I'm laid out hoping this pain goes away. Guess I'll be going to the ob again tomorrow to make sure everything's all right with me and the baby.

lapoli...  What exactly is a corn bag?

I'm *pretty* sure she means that bags that you make that you can microwave to heat up your hands, wrap around your neck etc

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

Yes! That's exactly what I meant! Sorry for being late to reply here, but thank you Yarn or Fabric. Smiley

I'm thinking I may try to repurpose flannel from either a shirt or sheets to make them... my sewing skills, er, are lacking so there's no real need for me to spend lots of money on nice sewing things yet. Smiley

I had no idea you could use corn for that!

Troublet--your list is quite good!  I spotted a few things on there I might need to add...

I have only one more project to get done and I will be done with my 50 for 2010!!

All leftover projects will be added to this list---at this rate, I will have a list for at least 10 years! Grin
