1  Re: 2015 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by dulcet on: March 23, 2015 12:23:06 PM
Here are some dotees I've made the last couple of months, completely from stash.

First is the tulip for the Feb Flora swap.



And here's what I made this month for the Celestial dotee swap.  On the left is my practice, which ended up too big.  On the right is the dotee I sent.  I feel like they're sisters.

Yea!  I received my dotee from Wile E Songdog, and I'm so impressed with all the work that went into it.  I realized recently that I didn't really give her any easy options on my list (sorry).  Here's my lupine lady.



There are lots of tiny stitches holding on the florets, and little seed beads.



I have loved lupines ever since reading 'Miss Rumphius' by Barbara Cooney when I was younger.  But I've never been able to grow any, so this is a treat.  Thanks Wile E Songdog!

I just worked on a couple swap items, too! 

I finished an afghan last night, just a giant granny square.  It used up four skeins.  Don't have a destination for it yet.



Between the flu making its way through our family, and (happy) unexpected visitors, I haven't reached my goal of using up a box worth of stash for the month.  Hopefully it'll average out.

Here's another hat and blanket set for a different niece expected next month.  The blanket is flannel on the front with flocked satin folded over from the back for the edging.  No batting because they live where the snow never flies.

So I've signed up for the Feb Dotee swap, even though I've never made a dotee!  I figured I better try one for practice.  I pulled out various supplies and this is what I ended up with from stash.



I don't think it's a standard dotee, but I'm pleased with it.  I keep on seeing stuff painted on fabric, and decided to give it a try.  It was definitely different.  And it helped stiffen the wings.

6  heart on a string in Valentine's Day by dulcet on: February 09, 2015 09:58:40 AM
I saw something like this somewhere on the internet.  Just a mass of paper hearts on strings.  Cheap, easy, fast, and effective.  I wish I had some red spray paint around that I could have lightly hit a few with to add some dimension.  I wanted to use the whole book I had saved for crafting reuse, but made myself stop so I can get on with other things.  More would definitely be better.

Made a replacement for that hot pink hat that came out too big.  Didn't take much yarn, but I was able to work on it while I sat next to the child that needed to be pinned down to finish missing homework.

I did not get nearly as much done this month as I intended.  I had a commission (all materials provided, so no stash) that should have only taken one day, that I worked on for a week!  It was really frustrating!

I did manage to empty one box, which was my goal, but most of it was throw away or take to thrift store.  But I did make a flannel baby blanket and knitted hat for an expected niece, all from stash except the lace trim.  Unfortunately, the hat is too big for a newborn, so it may need a different home.  (It's the Poppy pattern by Justine Turner.)  Yes, they are really that bright!



I do have a large project from materials I prepped years ago that I'm working on, but it will take quite a while to finish.  It's a braided rug from jeans that I swore I'd never do.  I'm also working on a crocheted blanket that's just a big granny square.  That's my carry-around project for in the car and waiting rooms.

I spent some time this weekend making the things I had intended to give my kids' teachers for Christmas.  Hopefully they won't mind getting them after the break.


A kusudama (origami sphere) from the FoldingTrees tute.


Another type of kusudama from Clara's Paper Garden tute.


A paper rose from Stamper-licious tute.


And a Charlie Brown paper rose for the teacher who collects Peanuts.

And barely a dent in the paper stash.
