I hate that the spring yarns are calling my name...all the winter yarns have been carefully packed away and everything that I don't want any longer has gone to new homes...I feel good that I am only buying yarn if I have a specific project in mind...I have project bags now with the yarn, pattern and needles all segregated and ready to go...I know this destashing thread has got me to this point, and I am grateful!  It is so much easier and faster for me to craft now...

Next, fabrics and ribbons... Cheesy

A hat i made last week:
For some reason, you can see it better without the flash:

My sister was married on Tunnels Beach on Kaua'i last summer, and it POURED! (Right until the end... when they got a beautiful double rainbow.) So, she used a red umbrella up until she started "the walk." Sad part is, the umbrella broke. But we didn't want to get rid of it because it's her wedding umbrella! So, i was trying to think of things i could make with it. The first, obvious choice: market/tote bag. But she's got purses and bags out the wazoo, so she didn't need any more of those. Then, i got the idea of making a hood. It rains a fair amount here, and she ALWAYS complains. Especially when she's forgotten to wear a jacket with a hood. I'm pretty positive she'll never actually use it, but i think it's kind of cool, anyway. (It doesn't look quite as weird as it does in the pictures, if you're wearing it right...)

It wraps in front of the neck, partially so it won't fall off, and also to keep your warm. I used the snap to close it. And it's lined with some fleece i had in my stash.

And here's what i'm working on:
This shrug.
I want to make a full sweater someday, so i'm easing into it.

I finally got tired of seeing plastic grocery bags floating around the pantry so I made a "sock" to keep them in. I am particularly proud of the ruffles  Grin

destashing feels great! i do not regret joining in lol

I finally got some stuff from the basement sorted out, whew! There's an overflowing bin to get rid of, the baby quilt I owe a crafter here, a ginormous tote full of mending and altering projects, a substantial amount of scraps for Teesha Moore style projects (I even found a partially finished square that's so beautiful, I've got the finish that and make a project out of it!) and some cord patches I cut out for cushion covers.
I've got a mound of cut up old tshirts and fleece jackets that I've stashed to make panties and monsters respectively but I'm thinking I'd like to try something different. You know those quilts that are made with one side being cotton and the other side being denim, usually small squares and the seam allowance shows on one side and is fuzzy-frayed..? I think I'm going to make something like that with jersey on one side and fleece on the other, crazy colours and patterns with the seam allowances on one side (which side, fleece or jersey?). It would be so cosy, warm and colourful. I need it to be really big, the kids end up in bed with me every night and the afghan we have isn't wide enough for all three of us!
I'd like to work on some curtains for the bedroom too as it's very hard to get kids to sleep when it's so bright out so late. Any interesting fabric I've got is going into that project I think. I can use up everything and the house will be full of patchwork, which I love.
