A Craft Room Challenge

Hey all!  It's been a long while since I've been here, but all with good reason!  My DH and I are 17 weeks along with baby #4.  Between kids 1-3, being sick and exhaustion, I was doing good to get some semblance of dinner on the table each night.  Thankfully, the sun is sunnier and the skies are bluer (figuratively and literally).  I also think I've hit a bit of a nesting period.  Thus today's challenge:

Go to your craft room, closet or where ever you keep your "stuff."  Pick a box of who-knows-what's-in-here (I know we all have them) or another box of randomness.  Set a timer for whatever time you have available-an hour, 30 minutes, 15...Whatever works for your schedule. Go through that box and see how much you can put away, give away, throw away or gulp...actually finish (the project that is) in that time! 

On your mark....Get seeeeet.....GO!  (I'll wait)

Done?  Great job!  What'd you get done?  A bunch I bet!  I did this yesterday and managed to send off some now undesirable projects/patterns off to the thrift store.  I found some fabric for a table cloth I intended to make for Thanksgiving nearly 2 years ago.  Maybe this bandana dress for my 3 year old girlie and mended a sweater for my 8 year old diva.  Not to mention cleared out some prime real estate in my crafting space. 

So tell me.  What did you find/accomplish?
