I love how she transitioned the yarns...this would be good for colors that don't really seem to go but when blended, would make a warm and colorful afghan...

That is a really great way to transition yarn!  Thanks for sharing - I've got a stash that needs to be whittled down!

I love that afghan. I did the same thing with yarn when I made my cat a bed. It was a good stashbuster, for sure!

I managed to go to Dollar Tree today without buying any craft supplies AND I gave my cousin's girlfriend's daughter a container of beads, since she likes to make jewelry. Even though it didn't make a huge difference in my stash, it's a start!

I'm currently working on crocheting an Ood (another Doctor Who alien) from a free ravelry pattern.

Today I'm working on some swap, managed to use up a tiny amount of the #20 thread  Roll Eyes and hopefully will fit in some sewing later to use up some fabric.

I need to put manners on my craftroom after the chaos of christmas, so might do that today and then I will make something for me!

I started the re-do of my bling wreath, only to discover that I do not have enough rhinestones, and the way the placement was laid out I can't finish it with more pearls.  GRF!  Ah, well, onto something else white.  *sigh*

I have rearranged my stash (although there is more elsewhere) and it now looks very neat and tidy... now I just have to use it!

I've decided as a way to curb the fabric appetite, I keep my most recent purchase in my vehicle until it's time to use it, kind of proof of the fact that I don't need more fabric.  I have enough for the following projects:

suit
hoody
bath robe
fleece jammies
cotton jammies
silky blouse
floral blouse
white blouse

I need the bath rob and fleece jammies asap, the rest I need before the end of April, however my goal is to lose about 30 pounds by end of April, so the more fitted clothing will wait until mid March to be started.

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/
