@Lynx2Lancer The basket you made is a great way to use up yarn! Not only are you using what you already have, you’re making a great way to store items. I love it!

@craftADDchick I like your granny blanket, and I’m so happy you finished it! Weaving in ends is my least favorite task. I made a Spongebob blanket 4 years ago, and it took me over 8 hours to weave in the ends (even with help from my sister!). I feel your pain.

@gozer I love the dino bag. It’s perfect and the person you’re sending it to will be very happy with it!

@Bunny1kenobi The cards you made are so cute! I absolutely love the first blurred item in your post. Side 1 is my favorite. Your project dump is full of so many cute things, and looking at all of the items you made had me smiling. I don’t want to comment more because I don’t want to ruin your swap surprises :slightly_smiling_face:

@Tanath Your food posts had me drooling. The bento boxes look delicious and adorable

@Smeddley I’ve seen so many videos of acrylic pouring, and it looks so fun (and messy!). I love all of the colors you chose. :hearts:

@ezrib Your suncatcher is adorable, and I love the idea of having rainbows dancing around the room. I bet it helps improve your day :slightly_smiling_face:

I really, really used to hate weaving in the ends and I would only do projects with solid colors or very limited color changes. Now, I find it a little relaxing, actually. I tend to weave my ends in pretty thoroughly, so it takes me a little longer than it probably should.
