Found you through the Circus of the Spineless carnival. I wonder if this might be an owlfly larva (same suborder as lacewing). Says Bugguide.Net: "Larvae resemble those of ant-lions, but have a 'finger-like appendage' on the side of each segment. Some genera actively cement sand and debris onto their bodies as camouflage. Pupation occurs in a silk cocoon in leaf litter."

Neuroptera larva. They can have shelter as well and we can find them on stems.
