You guys are definitely inspiring!!! I have been watching all week all your accomplishments which just makes me itch to DO something too. Really everyones projects are just amazing.

Well I have started on my fabric stash and made me a half apron, which has been very needed for a while! My other one (a vintage one - what constitutes vintage??? mine is at least 30 years old  Wink ) was getting seriously see through and not doing what an apron should - keep clothes splatter free! I didn't use a pattern and just cut the fabric by looking at the old apron. I did need my new one longer tho, and I like my ties longer also, to go from the front all the way around the back to the front again as I cannot get my left arm behind me anymore. Anyway, all in all I am pleased with it.



I left my camera at moms, so had to use a camera phone, download that to one computer and then transfer to my computer! haha otherwise there would be more pics Wink I have also posted it to my blog, so my kids can see it too.

Thanks Smiley I have to admit there were quite a few moments of panic when I realized I could not remember which way the peace symbol went! But I loved the yellow colour, and thats what drew me first Smiley then the peace symbols just made me chuckle, so I knew had to get the fabric Smiley

That's such a cute apron! And I have lots of things that get threadbare after a while like that. Should it concern me that when it happens, I start getting excited about what I can recycle those items into next???  Embarrassed

This wasn't originally a stash project, but it took so long to complete, I think it counts.  The quilt top was sewn in July, quilted in December, and I finally finished binding it in March.

I decided to make booties to match the hat I made. I did not have a pattern or know how to turn a heel and I almost scrapped them before I finished. I made a few mistakes and had to untangle my yarn and needles on more than one occasion. Some how they turned out looking like booties. They even seem to be about the right size.

It is a very lovely blanket Gaudyknigth. Good of you to get it finished! And the boots are cute, Yesmine.
And Crafty - I love the the fabric you put together with the yellow peace-sign fabric. It is such an unusual combo, and it just work so well together.

Cute quilt Gaudiknight.

But for me, nine months would be fast to be making and finishing a quilt. I have one that still needs more work that I began February of 2011.

Sweet booties ysmeine. Smiley
