I'm so happy for you, craftylittlemonkey! A few years ago, my NY resolution was to complete all WIP's, and it was so satisfying when I finished them. It spilled over into other areas (work!) and I started to feel even more creative personally. I'm thrilled you are really feeling the mojo right now!

I do have a large jar of sewing thread remains and every tiny bit of fabric from my projects, but that felt bin is amazeballs! Thank you for sharing and inspiring!

This conversation just pushed me to filter all my images and pinboards to list new techiques to try and another one of future projects. Exciting!

It's not enough that Wulf and I hear your voices when we read posts from the Canada Meet Up crew. Since I've been in your bedroom, CLM, and have seen your wool snippets, now I'll be seeing those images as well! My Meet Up friends are taking over my mind!!!! But I'd love to do it all over again!

For the past few years I've been helping with Camp Saddle Up, a camp for autistic kids. The director likes to have the campers make and sign thank you cards for our supporters, but sometimes the kids want to keep the cards they make. This year I suggested that we solve that challenge by letting the kids make a project that they would keep, but just sign cards that I would make. That worked much better. These are a few of the strip pieced cards I made from my stash. Sorry the photos are so dark.

I've also been trying various techniques I've seen on YouTube videos. Good way to use some of my double-sided cardstock.

Then this project has been sitting on my work table for several months but never seemed to be a priority. Finally started it last night and finished the cowl in just a few hours. Just wish it had taken the full skein of blanket yarn. Now I'm hoping there's enough left to make a cap, too. I hate leftover partial skeins!

The cards are fantastic!

I was hoping to have a lot more WIPs done this summer as well, but I keep starting new projects!

Love the cowl you made...I also hate having little bits of yarn left over...but I am sort of resigning myself that I am always going to have leftovers of yarn, paper, and fabric...Grin.

Scrappy crafts are awesome.  It's great to put those bits and pieces to constructive use, and in such pretty ways. 

The cowl will add a warm touch to this winter's outfits, and the cards are truly meaningful endeavors.

During the kidlets' summer band practice, there was someone's little sibling with her mermaid dolly watching from the sideline.  Inspired by her love of Ariel, I made a mermaid/fishtail blankie -- the kind that resembles a tapered sleeping bag with a fish tail at the end, out of fleece and colorful scraps and gave it to her.  It used a bit of my stash (yay!) plus made a little one happy (yay too!).  Sorry, I forgot to snap pics.

A mermaid tail fleece bag is a wonderful RAK! Bet she'll remember your kindness for a long time.

Your craft space looks so much larger than I remember it being. Maybe that's because so many of us were packed in there checking out your stash!
