I joined! Thanks for that Pretty! I've been wanting to make a real quilt but it's intimidating. This should help.

Thanks for the tip. I've never been to that site before, I'll have to go and check it out.

I made a dress for my new doll so it won't have to be bald and naked. (Wig is on the way.)

Ah, I just noticed that her eyes are uneven. Gotta fix that.
I guess I didn't destash that much, only 2 charm squares.

That is a darling dress! Nice attention to detail too, centering the strawberry on the bodice.

I might have to make my Jan themes in Feb. I will be taking some days off work. My daughter stopped by yesterday and stole the pink scarf. I need to start something new. First sleep, though.

I love days off during the week because it gives me plenty of un-interrupted craft time! And now I bring to you, my stripes

and an action shot

I used this tutorial http://www.outoforderdesign.com/2010/04/diy-tutorial-full-skirt.html and it was great!

 Now I just have to figure out what to do with the other 3 yards!

I have been a busy girl, I thought I'd share some photos for January. I'm still yet to make myself anything although I so have a shawl in progress which has 8 rows left but I'm stuck on row 32 because it makes no sense, I've already found 2 mistakes within the pattern but it's something I will have to go back to.

So I've made two stripey wonders, both of which have been received well the first is an ipad case for my skint friend who refuses to take her ipad out with her because she can't afford a cover, not having an ipad myself I'm not sure how well it will fit but I've taken the dimensions from the internet, I posted it today as she lives in London (I'm from Milton Keynes) so I'll feed back what she says:

The second is a blanket I've been working on for about four months for a friends baby who is almost 3months old! It's technically not stash as I bought the wool to make it way back in September intending to make just this, but as it sat untouched in my box for such a long time I have counted it in and I am elated that it's finally finished, washed and packaged ready to post. I'm also really impressed with the wool, I bought a baby acrylic which was a relatively cheap brand and it's come out really well from the washing machine on a wool cycle - always a plus for a new mum! This will be heading to Hertfordshire:

Also, brownie points to anyone who spots my horrific mistake  Cry I had already got to the last row of pink before I realised and there was no way in hell I was unravelling that beast!

Lastly, a white item for a friend's baby, an owly hat (a pattern I purchased from ravelry) and the outfit it goes with, also made from the stash. She's expecting a baby girl in less than 3 weeks and is fed up with all the baby pink stuff so this was my contribution:


Happiness is the key to success, success is not the key to happiness. If you love what you're doing you will be happy.

Wow! The colors are so lovely on the outfit, I like the white hat, and the stripey case looks perfect. I'm glad you didn't unravel the blanket, it's great. Lucky friends!

Love the Ipad case it looks great!

I finally destashed some things. I got the idea from SheepBlue, she posted a green necklace in the 50 Projects craftalong that I really wanted to try out. So since I had Valentine colored seed beads I thought I would give it a try. I used over 1200 seed beads, but of course it didn't even begin to make a dent in my stash. (The beads were given to me by AlwaysInMyRoom so maybe it counts as a destash for her too.  Smiley)
