Thanks for all the kind feedback everyone, I know the mum doesn't care, I've shown her pics and she keeps crying with joy at the fact I made it for her  Cheesy but I'm an OCD perfectionist and it annoys me that I made such a stupid mistake and didn't realise, although I guess I'm not a shop supplying machine.

Also forgot to mention that the heart on the ipad case is actually a pocket so that it can store headphones, I was inspired by this pattern but I didn't use it, I found the heart pattern seperately on ravelry although I believe it's made in a similar manner to this one: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/love-my-ipad-case

I never saw the flaw in your blanket!

I think it was Navajo weavers who would include an intentional mistake in the pattern, as a demonstration of their own spiritual humility.

Love, love, LOVE the owl hat! Totally adorable.

I've heard about quilters doing this too but after a quick google search came up with this (scroll down a bit)

Not that that means it's not still a sweet idea. I sort of like it Smiley.

Great work in here, I'll need to sit down and really go through all the posts. I'm swimming in chores today though, ack!

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

Loving all the projects! Milady, that baby outfit is just too adorable!
For all you seamstresses, I just found these fabric organizers. Too cool! I need some of these for all my ribbons and trims. I'm a cheapskate though, and I think they could easily be counterfeited. I like how they keep your stash visible in a pretty and organized way.

brackish - those organisers are great. What do you think you would use if you made a similar storage option? I bought a bunch of ribbon by the yard that are just bundled up and could definitely do with some proper storage.

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

I made a bunch of those from cardboard fabric bolts.  I just asked if I could have them from my local fabric store.  They were happy to give them to me.  I cut them two different heights so they fit on the shelves I have.  Mine don't have the little tabs...just cardboard and a few straight pins on the ends to hold the fabric in place.

Here's a pic of what they look like.

Ok well I haven't actually created anything or busted even the tiniest bit of stash. but i HAVE cleared (mostly) my craftroom, after the christmas chaos, it became a dumping ground for stuff from the rest of the house, so it is now cleared, there are two working spaces all blank and ready to go..

just need to find my crafty mojo..this is the longest that it has been absent..

I always feel as if I've gotten a whole lot done, and then when I go to post something I realize it was only one or two projects--maybe it's because I have too many in progress things!

But I did get some curtains done, all from stash. Some of the fabrics in there are from clothes that I never wore and/or got ruined in the wash, and the cloth with the embroidery on it used to be an old vintage pillowcase that got ruined by a large hole. So these actually did make a slight dent in my huge fabric stash!





Then I finally found a use for an old Chinese restaurant calendar/menu I've been saving forever--it's now being used to show off my inchies/ATC collection!
