Inspiration without application is moot.

Loving the headband(s?) KooKaloo_Star. Oh and I love your avatar. I want to do that so much, have since I went with my mom when I could not have been more than 7 or 8. The belly dance bug bit me early and still has not let go.

ysmeine, wow, love the cat bed! Wish my cat would stay in one instead of finding a new place to sleep each day. Wink

Destash #1 - pillow covers
I bought one fat quarter purposely for this, but the other one, trim and backing fabric all came from leftovers of other quilts Smiley
throw pillow covers are sort of addictive - my husband gave me a worried look when I said I wanted to do more.  I just wish the inserts weren't so pricey

I really love the fabric you chose for both of them! As for the inserts, I don't know what you have available in your hometown, but our thrift stores sell old throw pillows really cheap that are probably those size. I've been thinking about buying some and making some spiffy covers for them.

I finally finished my patchwork curtains! It's so lovely to actually have something in my windows to keep my living room private now! I'll see if I can't get pictures soon and upload them (it's rainy today so I'll have to wait until the sun comes out!)

Next project is a twin-sized patchwork quilt made of scrap fabric for the bed I'll be getting my son soon, and then some wristwarmers (crochet) for my mother, who has declared that she is IN LOVE with the ones I made my sister for Christmas.

If you have to pop off to the store to buy the right size knitting needles, does that count as destashing? It's getting more supplies, not more materials.
I wanted to make the Tychus hat for my husband and start today. He picked gross colors, though. Buff and gold. That doesn't sound bad but it really is. Like buff and 70's gold. If I go I'm afraid I'll buy him the colors he originally wanted, black and blue.
What to do?

Thanks spiffy - I adore Lizzy House fabrics.  I think buying pillows at the thrift store would be an allergy issue at our house, but Michaels and Joanns have them, so I just have to be patient and used coupons, not get excited and go buy them immediately:P

I finally finished my scarf...and it's going straight to the frogging basket.  It came out way too short (one of the problems with going lengthwise instead of width-wise) and just looks strange.  How can something look so gorgeous in the skein but look so bad knit up?

ysmeine--even your practice pieces turn out lovely!

love the pillows...I am in a "pillow" mood as well...but, you are right...I always wait until I have coupons to get inserts...I am making my pillow covers with an envelope back so I can change them whenever I get tired of them...

and, cloudsnapper...I LOVE THAT HAT!!!  I just printed it out to make soon!  I have tons of redheart that I could use up...I think buff and gold would look nice with that hat, although I love the high contrast...I am going to use navy and white since those are Penn State colors and my hubs is a Penn State guy!

Pictures a little later on, but I have completed a stash-only for me and a striped item, I'm thinking about a white one now.

I'm astonished at how much work and de-stashing has happened already on this thread. And although I've de-stashed a little, I'll have to re-stash on some threads Wink.

Oh, I've also done quite a lot of reorganising and taking stock.

ysmeine, what a pretty scarf! I'm starting to really like the look of woven things.
