That's nice, edelC.

I haven't done much destashing since the kids got out of school for the summer.  But I finally got around to a project that I needed their help for.  I pulled everything out of our family craft cupboard.  I've been putting stuff in there for years, thinking the kids could make things with all the bits and bobs.  But they don't really look in there.  So this morning I pulled everything out and spread it on the floor.  

They have been making stuff all day!

I'm going to start sorting through what's left and decide what goes back in.  I plan on keeping less than half.

Ludi, that's fabulous!  And crochet (among other crafts) can be very meditative.

I was just at the post office sending my dotee.  And when I got home I had just received my dotee from bec99!  (Instant karma!)  I opened the package, and we all squealed.  She made me a sushi dotee!  He's got ginger and wasabi, and the tail is made from white bugle beads that remind me of rice.

My daughters grabbed it right away to show off to everyone in the family.  And now I'm hungry for sushi.  It's a good thing he's so cute....

Sarasmile, you did a great job on your first dotee.  The dynamic shape of the tail looks like she just flicked some water off it, and the droplets are catching the sunlight breaking it into rainbows.

Sharalee, come back when you can!

I received from blupaisan today, and I was amazed she actually chose the angler fish from my list!  And she modeled it spot on!

It's being held by a mermaid (also on my list) like it's a pet.  I don't know that I would want to cuddle one of those!  And it came in the cutest packaging, like it was part of a collection sold at a store (similar to an equine variety of toy).

Here she is with her angler hat on.  And you can see the stiffened fabric and string that make her tail.

blupaisan, how in the world did you make that angler?!  His teeth look like they're tiny, very sharp thorns.

Found this vintage wool among some crochet samples from my Grandma.  It looks a bit moth-eaten, and I'm hesitant to start unwinding it.  I guess I think it might all come away as bits and pieces in my hands.

Anybody want to throw out some wild suggestions for what I should do with it?

My DD needed a vaguely historic costume for a vaguely historic activity with her youth group.  We're not talking accurate reenactment, just give the modern kid an idea of what life was like on the frontier.  Think Little House on the Prairie.  We got the blouse at a thrift shop (placket, cuffs, collar, not happenin' on my time), but I made her skirt (large pockets) and bonnet from stash.  She was pleased, and survived the adventure.

Sorry, but I am sooo thrilled by my dotee!  It's amazing fabulous! 

It's Moon River by Henry Mancini...

from Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn!!!

Wile E Songdog did some beautiful beadwork.  Thank you for my wonderful dotee!

More patchwork skirts. 

I plan on having a yard sale this weekend to sell these.  I also want to put out at least half of my fabric stash.  Going into the disaster room now to see what I feel like I can let go.

K_Starr -- that sounds like quite a project, but lots of fun!

This past month I've been making little girl skirts out of a bunch of small pieces of fabric I've inherited.  I end up with about 4" squares from most of them.  I'm hoping I can sell these.  It would be nice if I had a beta-tester running around so I would know if I got the sizing right, but I'm no longer in the market for one of those!   Roll Eyes

I got my dotee from Ludi and I am so thrilled!  She made me Edgar Allan Poe!

Love that characteristic Ludi stitching for hair.  He carries a book with the first stanza of The Raven, and he's got black, feather wings.  And the halo?  She titled it "A-Poe-theosis."  So very clever!  Apotheosis is 'the elevation or exaltation of a person to the rank of god.' 

Thank you, Ludi!  He's fantastic!

That's a lot of hats!  And here's another thumbs-up on figuring out those cables.

Always -- good job resisting!

Last week I gave away a box of fabric.  
I finished a toddler-sized shrug.

And I made myself an Easter skirt from stash.
