Aprettymess, what a cute purse! I tend to anthropomorphize things, so I see an angry face when the bag is closed and a surprised one when it's open. Grin This makes me giggle.

All this newspaper yarn talk has me wondering.. you can't get it wet, right?  so I wonder what that limits you to in terms of final project... baskets, sure.  but what else?  art?  maybe a rug in a bedroom?

That's one of the reasons I put off making the yarn. But I found a list of suggested sealants so I'm going to  experiment with them, I will let you guys know my findings  Cheesy

Maybe not if you have small children.  I can just see this after a toddler pees on it.  Shocked

lmso!!


I started a project that I've had planned for 6 months.  Not the oldest project planned in my stash, but one that will make my life way easier, and make it easier to finish up some other projects.   I'm making a larger Ironing surface that will fold up onto my wall.  And on the side that faces out, I will paint something!   So it's like functional art Cheesy  I have to get the hubby to cut down the wood a bit though as the stuff I'm using was found in my basement (when we bought the house 4 years ago) and part of it must have sat in water for a while.  Once he has that done, I'll be nearly finished!

aprettymess...I like your bag/purse, too! Cheesy  Pink/black/paisley...*MeoW*

It makes me want to create a sling purse I've got a pattern for in one of my books...but I have enough projects screaming to be done, first~ Tongue

I'm intrigued by the idea that belladune has going for an ironing board/art piece...hope we see some pics of it soon(I could get the Mister to build me one, too...) Wink   *ha ha...yea, right!*

I am afraid I must confess that I broke my yarn-fast yesterday.  But I finished the project that same evening, and it is all boxed up ready to go to its recipient, so I don't feel as bad as I should.  Plus, I am in love with that yarn, which is good, because I (as always) still have a third of a ball left over. *facepalm*

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



i think the fabric is some of the first (if not THE first) i ever bought. I have like 5 yards and no idea why hahaha mustve been clearance or something

destashing feels great! i do not regret joining in lol
