I just realized that the flowers I made might qualify for this month's "nature" theme.

The group of four flowers were meant to be interchangeable on a white chemo hat I made for my sister-in-law.

Technically the lilac one isn't "stash" since I purchased it this month; but I bought it with the idea to make a hat (also for my SIL) and the flower was made from some of the leftovers.

I just updated my list for the month, projects 28-42!!  Granted, some of them were small like this group of flowers I made for a hat for my sister-in-law

I made the hat with a separate outer "tab" and the flowers have bobby pins in them so she can interchange the flowers as she wishes.  I also made her a different hat that has permanent flowers.

I participated in my first swap (on Craftster) this month. I never realized the toughest part of the swap would be not being able to show the pictures until my package arrived! Cheesy

Stayed home due to a nasty cold today but that meant I not only finished my doily, I had the opportunity to block it too.

Some more finished projects this month:  two more washcloths including my 3rd spike washcloth

Made a chemo hat for my SIL.  I only made one because I was concerned about the fit, but it turned out to be perfect so she's commissioned 3-4 more!

My daughter kept stealing the flowers I put on the black hat, so I made her one in a soft pink.  We need to find something to put it on.

And finally ... a chicken.  We decided he must be a rooster, so DD named him "Rocky" (Chicken Run).  She now wants a hen that we can name Ginger.

For my March challenges.
Organize Your Space.  Most of my non-yarn stash is still a mess because I need to sort through it to figure out what essentials I'll keep and get rid of the ones I'll never touch.  However, I went through and organized my yarns and threads last week.  Now they are mostly grouped by weight (worsted, fingering/sock, lace, etc) with a couple of groupings by fiber type (wool and cotton).  So much easier to find what I'm looking for.  Now I just need to use up that stash (and stop buying!)

I went on a washcloth-binge this month to use up some of my cotton yarn.  I fell in love with making these spike-stitch washcloths and ended up making three of them, alternating colors every 2 rows to create stripes.

Neither the cookies nor the marshmallows were homemade today but we couldn't pass up the opportunity when Papa decided to burn an old tree stump!  Thanks for the inspiration Smiley

Having fun using up some cotton stash.  I'm terribly sick of the variegated; I had purchased several cones (700yds!) when I found it on clearance.  I gave a couple away and I think I'm finally down to the my last cone - in this color anyway. 

I was able to use up the last of a ball of bright pink for something different; I liked the pattern so much I made a second in blues.

I've gotten the itch to use up some of my cotton stash.  Buying cones of the stuff wasn't such a good idea - at least not in the variegated.  I'm sick of it.  I used up a good chunk making this short basket - although I admit, I purchased some white so I could double-strand it.

I've also made up several washcloths.  The daughter has absconded with two of them already; they're used as washcloths but also blankets for dolls and anything else she can come up with.

We made Samoas cookie pie.  It's supposed to be like the Girl Scout cookies.  I don't think it tastes the same - but it is intensely decadent!

Pardon me if I missed it, but do we have a new challenge for March?

I updated my list with a few items I made this month

a knit hat to use up some stash; I liked it so much I think I might keep it for myself!

a purse/bag for my daughter - I was just playing around with some crochet stitches and again, trying to use up old stash.  I'm not real fond of it, but she loves it (even if it isn't all pink)

a basket I made for some cubicles in my daughter's room; they're only ~10"x10" and most store-bought fabric ones I've seen are 12".  This is short because it only needs to hold some socks (or maybe underwear).  However, double-stranding cotton thread is hard on the hands; this may be the only basket I make.
