I did get a couple of things stitched over the last while, including my project for VMQG's Scrap Bag Challenge and Swap. I read about this kind of fun guild activity on a blog but now I forget where (sorry about that!).
To participate, you fill a small ziploc baggie with about a FQ's worth of scraps, and tuck a slip of paper with your name inside. Then you choose someone else's bag, take it home and make something small with it.
So many things were made in the Scrap Bag Challenge and Swap
Here are the scraps I picked up.

I'm delighted to know that Janet loves her pouch! Here are a couple of her photos:
I also stitched up a couple of pillowcases to give to the drive in support of the children of Newtown, CT. I used a tutorial on Lovely Little Handmades and they came together beautifully:
