Almost...

So I didn't quite end August on target for 100 projects in a year, but I finished this pillow
 
last night, so I'm close.  I can still make it.  I'm not as sure about the 100 yards of fabric from the stash, however, since I haven't even reached 35 yards yet, but there are some sewing WIPs laying around.........

The pillow is a birthday gift for our friend who plays the ukulele--or one of our friends who plays the ukulele, as they're quite the popular little instrument lately.  The fabric is one of the very oldest in my stash--I can't remember for the life of me what I bought it for originally, but it makes a great pillow.  Project number 66 DONE!

And, I have made one gift for "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" for the fall stashdash.  As you might have noticed, I posted an edited fall challenge based on the one I led last year on Ravelry.  It's not on Ravelry this year, but I really enjoyed it last year and thought my WIPs could use a little boost.  If you're in the same boat, feel free to play along.  The fun thing is, we did this challenge last year, and I packed away project boxes for myself for my birthday and for Christmas of this year.  Well, my birthday is a week from Saturday, so I'll finally get to open my project box and start something new, then repack it for next year.  I think this could be a fun tradition.  It may not be new yarn, but yarn-I-haven't-seen-in-a-year-and-might-not-even-remember could be almost as exciting.  

Speaking of which, it has now been 1 year, 10 months, and 1 day since I last purchased yarn.  Why is my stash not smaller????????????????????????????
