Your scarf turned out awesome! I love the colors you used.

I love that yarn! So beautiful and comfy!

Thanks! It's Lion Brand Amazing and Cascade Heritage Silk, if you were curious.

When I get rid of stuff, I like to think that the person who receives it is going to be thrilled about it, and what a nice thing that is to make someone else happy. If I wait until I'm dead to pass it on, I miss out on all those warm fuzzy feelings.

I forgot to take pictures earlier, but here is the little wallet I made for my DS (another Valentine's gift) out of some leather scraps (he's always stealing my wallet out of my purse, so I made him his own...this is my solution to whatever thing of mine he's filching - make him his own).  Wink

I saw this cute top posted last week and had to have it, so I made my own from some stash fabric. I used just over a yard, I think. The fabric frayed like crazy, but French seams and facings for the armholes fixed that issue. I think I might add a ruffle to the bottom for a little extra length and weight...the fabric doesn't drape the way I imagined it would. My DS sat next to me while I did much of the sewing. He's two and obsessed with my sewing machine. He has his own antique children's sewing machine (missing some parts, like the needle) that he plays with while I use mine.

That's awesome, Bushbaby!

Everyone is being so productive!

For Valentine's Day, I made my DS matching mittens (I couldn't find the other one while taking pictures), a hat, and a scarf out of some stashed yarn. It's still too cold to play outside.  Tongue I am sooooo over this weather.

DS and I got bored the other day, so we made pillowcases for the two pillow forms I had laying around. I used an old pillowcase without a mate for the smaller pillow and some stash denim for the big one. He's thrilled to have his own baby-sized pillow.

These are fantastic! Using that hidden zipper was genius.

CLM - No hating, I promise! I'm just excited to think that I really can (eventually) justify buying myself a serger, or an FMQ machine. I have only ever owned one machine, but it's been good to me.

I think I finished about 10 projects in January, all from stash. All of my craft supplies have been sorted, though, and that's great. Now I just have to get all of the boxes and furniture in proper storage so I can use my room again! This knee-deep snow is so frustrating!  Tongue

I spent $6.50 on craft supplies last month. We went to a last-minute birthday party for my nephew and I went to Jo-Ann's to get him a book on drawing, and I was running seriously late in bad weather (not making a separate stop for a card) so I ended up buying some blank cards/envelopes and embellishments. Bonus: I have the stuff I need to make 23 more cards.  Wink

I also get a bit of stash-envy looking at all these photos. CLM, three sewing machines?! Lucky!

But, realistically, I know I'll probably never get around to using up all of my stash, so I don't need more. But, I wouldn't mind having more sewing machines.  Wink

I'm pretty sure I've gone through all of my supplies now and weeded out what I no longer want or need. I found four poppet-like dolls, in various stages of completion, in with my doll supplies. Roll Eyes They got added to my to-do list. The boxes and furniture that need to be put in storage are cluttering up my craft room, but I managed to shuffle things around so that I can get to everything now. I still can't use my desk, but it's an improvement.

That hoodie is so cute!

Thank you, Kookaloo_Starr, J_Kieviet, and Stillatthetop! I did turn one into a hair clip for myself. The biggest of the three will become a brooch (I still need to buy a big pin-back), and the other small one will likely become a hair clip, too (will be given away as I don't need two). I painted them to match a floral fabric I'm planning to make a shirt dress out of.

I can't craft in my craft room right now, so I try to mess up the rest of the house as little as possible. I'm usually a huge maker of messes.  Cheesy

I started these flowers a while ago and stopped because I was making a mess cutting up the leather. It kept getting put off, but I finished them yesterday. I have so many scraps of leather, I was just looking for something to do with them.

I made three, and there are more pictures on my blog, including a couple in-process.
