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.

Yea!!!  I got my dotee, and I am thrilled!  I got the whole solar system.

Alwaysinmyroom even made the galaxy fabric with bleach.  What did you use for Saturn's 'rings?'  The best part, to me, is Pluto hanging on down below.  On my questionnaire I put "Pluto is still a planet to me."  And she named the dotee 'Poor Pluto!'  I've been smiling all day!

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.
