who needs rose tinted glasses when they have blur-o-vision  Grin

I read an article once that called the phenomenon "myopia utopia."  Works for me!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Dumbledore's Army Catch-Up - Drinks in the Hog's Head
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Ritz Rolo Combo
Brief Description: I've been going to the same family friend's house for an Easter Potluck for years and years now.  No croquet this year, sadly, but we did have an amazing scavenger hunt, a great hymn sing, and plenty of good food.  My contribution was a batch of super simple not-quite-cookies.  Basically you take a Ritz cracker, stick a Rolo on top, pop it in the oven for about 3 minutes, and then squish another cracker on top.  The results taste a lot like a Twix.  But it doesn't require heating up the house much, and most of the prep time goes into unwrapping the candy.  It's at that lovely point where the lines of minimal effort and tastiness intersect.

The same thought had crossed my mind.  I think they'd make pretty good Random Acts of Kindness to just leave in places for people to take.  But since I mainly have quilting cotton in my stash, I'm not sure they'd turn out sturdy enough.

jennleahlynn - What a neat idea!  I hope you share pictures of the finished collages.

pottermouth - ZOMBIE SHEEP!!!  It doesn't get any better than that!

Inselaeffchen - Great job!  There's something really satisfying about cleaning out cabinets like that.

BadWolf314 - Those side tables look great.  Looking forward to a project page link.

Advanced Studies Friday Update
After a week or so of no progress I'm back in the saddle.  I was finding no inspiration in my stash, so I let myself buy a little bit of fabric for the project, and that seemed to be the kick start I needed.  Dress count stands at 1/7 three weeks into my 7 week time frame.  Not great, but still do-able.

Thanks!  It was a lot of fun to make - I used a template from the Sherenchnitte Blog so it was really easy too.

It's been a while since we've had activity - Is everyone out enjoying the spring weather?

I've got a few quick projects to post - all tiny things so they don't use up much stash, but every little bit helps.

I knit a sweater for a 4 inch tall doll.  That used up maybe 3 yards of yarn.

First by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

I tried my hand at paper cutting.  I wasn't even going to count this as DeStashing, since it only used two sheets of paper, but then I found a frame for it tucked away in stash so it felt like a more substantial effort.

And finally a set of Easter Cards - A few sheets of cardstock and scrapbook paper, and an excuse to use a stamp I've neglected for ages and ages.

tiamatfire - Those macarons look gorgeous!  Where did you find the recipe?

mistressjennie - I love the fabric you chose for the laptop case.  Thanks for sharing the tutorial link - I might just have to give it a shot.

jenleahlynn - Congrats on winning the contest!  I'm really admiring the lettering you did on the leaves.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy / Bludger to Ravenclaw (All Stash Material)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Easter Cards
Brief Description: I needed an easter card to send in a care-package, and if you're going to make one, why not make several and use up a bit more of the stash.  The colors of the patterned paper are a lot more rosy and gold in real life (for some reason the pictures turned out terribly).  I was very happy to finally use this stamp, which has been languishing in my stash for the past 10 years.
