Maybe I'll just have to drop in some day and give you a private lesson or maybe Always could, since she lives closer to you.  Grin

That would be awesome!  I really think we should have meetups more often.  How can I wait an entire year to see the gang again?

I destashed a couple of plastic/flannel backed table cloths!  They have been made into reusable, reversible bowl covers.  They add a cheerful touch to a picnic or gathering.

Those are cool!

I made something yellow. Our friend who loves Spongebob had his annual bday bash last weekend and we needed a little gift.
I wish I could say it was all from stash but I didn't have white or black yarn, thrift store to the rescue again! It's ok though, I need more yarn for that free Friday library knitting and crochet group I'm going to join, right?
No pattern, just fly as you go style...

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Great re-purposing, JS!

CLM, Sponge Bob's nose is inspired! Makes me think of Pinocchio.

CLM your friend will adore that SpongeBob!

*Ahem.*   The Robotics Team at my children's school is hosting a craft show fund raiser in August!  (Insert shameless advertising plug - They are great kids.)
I signed up, which means I'll be doing a good bit of destashing.  Hopefully some items will sell and I'll gain some shelf space.  This is the team's second craft show and I'm happy to support their endeavor.  Last year's event was loads of fun, gabbing with other sellers and stalking vendors' tables.  Due to friendly bartering, I came home with more than I took lol.  Any tips from you craft show sellers are greatly appreciated.

I just whipped the old vinyl tablecloth out of the give away bag...what a fabulous idea...I can use the good parts of the tablecloth to make a few bowl covers! Grin

I keep putting things in the various bags in my garage but coming onto Craftster forces me to snatch them out again! Grin

JS best of luck, have a fun and successful sale!

Oh, lol, AIMR, that is too, too funny! Cheesy

I am actually finishing some UFO's. I dumped them all out onto the crafting table downstairs and had to laugh at myself. Most of them are 80-90% completed so require very little to complete them. Like cloth bags only needing handles stitched in place, flannel pads just missing velcro tabs, upcycled tshirt undies with the elastic pinned in place awaiting stitches, toys with a tiny hole or one detached limb, etc etc etc. It's actually a tad embarrassing, I've been hauling it around like this for years. And here I thought I was such a neurotic finisher Tongue.
Well, no time like the present!

Maybe our next meet up should include a 'finish my UFO for me' time. I've got a bunch of nearly finished UFOs too that never seem to get completed. Finishing someone else's projects for them might be motivationly easier than finishing our own.

There are actually people who finish projects for people...that is a real job! Grin

I try to do one WIP for every new project I start...I say "try"...as soon as my brother takes my mom's furniture out of our spare bedroom, I will have room to dump all of my wips...it is amazing, because like you, CLM, there are only a few little things that need to be done but I just can't get motivated to do them...I hate repair work the most...
