The "give a gift in a tote" was actually Kookaloo's idea not mine, but I do love it. By intervention do you mean you think other people would consider you a fabric addict and suggest you get professional help, or do you mean they might "help you" by taking some of your stash off your hands?? Either way, shoot them in the foot if they come near your stash!
Sounds like we have the same addiction, Quaggy. My fabric stash is about the same size as yours, but my flannels are mainly solid pastels. Yours are MUCH more interesting! Those burp cloths will certainly be appreciated.
I like the idea of using my stash to make totes, then using the totes to give gifts. Great way to double up on destashing, Kookaloo!
I'm fine with any means of partnering including randomly pulling from a hat.
I like to sew, crochet, paper craft, and bake but shipping baked goods doesn't always work due to the time element, so I just listed cooking (candy, jams and jellies, etc.). I really, really like to cook outdoors in a Dutch oven, but unless you all want to come to my house for a meal that's pretty much out of the question. You're all coming? Yippee!
As I was organizing and clearing things in my craft room today, I came up with 13 clothing patterns to destash and managed to empty 3 drawers and a plastic bin. Yeah! I'm beginning to see daylight. May even be able to start some serious crafting soon.
Never buy a cone of crochet cotton thread unless you want to see it forever! Last year I started using a white cone, a red cone, and two balls of blue for a tote bag, a set of placemats, and 10 coasters. This is what I've made so far this year, and there's still at least half a cone of white, 3/4 cone of red, and half a ball of blue left! I'm not sure what to make with the remainder.
I made the first bootie several years ago, but didn't like the pattern. We're expecting several additions to our extended family this year, so used that to motivate me to finish the pair. Still have too much of this yarn left though. May use it to make doll clothes or accessories.
I've been working on cleaning out and rearranging my craft room, so I haven't gotten many crafts done so far this year. My crochet club is taking part in a raffle later this year, so I've made a few things to go in our patriotic colors themed picnic tote bag: 2 washcloths to wipe away dirt or sand, 1 water bottle tote for hikes, 2 can cozies for lazing around the pool or beach. CHALLENGE ENTRY - COLOR
Then I've had one baby bootie finished for several years, so I finally made its partner. It took very little time but I didn't like the pattern, so it just sat unloved in my crochet bag for ages.
