Just posted these in the 50 projects thread, but these are all from stash. Down four and a half skeins of yarn, woo.

vampedangel14, love the bag! I've been wanting to make a crochet bag again, like a market bag. maybe next month.

I finished another pet bed over the weekend, but it's basically the same as the other one I posted, just with different yarn, so I didn't take a picture. I've already started another, which will probably be the last one I make for a while.

I also got rid of the owl hat and toddler afghan, since this weekend was the baby shower.

I also went to a surprise 60th birthday party for my aunt on Sunday where I gave her the 3 dishcloths I posted a pic of a few days ago, and she was so excited to get them! Before she opened her gift, my cousin brought up how she was having such a hard time learning to knit, and I suggested that she try crocheting instead, since I prefer it over knitting. Then my aunt said she really liked crocheted dishcloths, and I said, "Then open your gift from me. I made you something! " haha

I can now see a noticeable difference in my yarn stash. It's starting to look a lot more manageable!

Bookstorebabe, that was one amazing package.  I love all the different origins of your supplies.

Vampedangel14, that hairpin lace scarf looks so soft and gorgous and well done for so many projects and down-sizing your yarn stash.

Wow! Bookstorebabe, you really showered your partner with swappy goodness!

And I'm loving Vampedangel14's hairpin scarf and washcloth (is it wrong to love a washcloth?)  Cheesy

I had something so great in mind for my "white" thing... I have been meaning to make dolls of many of the Narnia characters literally for years -- and had stashed supplies specifically for same. I thought the January theme would be the perfect "nudge" I needed to start the White Witch. But here it is the end of January, with no doll to show for it, so I guess I'll just see what February brings.  Tongue

I finally made some dishcloths that I'm going to keep. I made a ton of them to give away as Christmas presents. These are mine. I did some stash busting and tried out a couple of new stitches.

Ooh, Narnia dolls! That sounds awesome! And I do love the hairpin lace, so pretty. And it's not wrong to love a washcloth, I do too. Cheesy michelleandbean, I like the dishcloths! I confess I'd have a hard time using something so pretty. You did a great job on them.
I do use a hodgepodge of stuff, don't I? But I love to swap and I'm on a limited  budget. Thanks for the kind words! Hee, Sherlock's emerald stickpin is a plain stickpin, a green stone from a broken bracelet, and a lock washer and a little paint for the filigree behind the stone.
Even though having a stash is what lets me swap, I still need to work on destashing. All the supplies that I've picked up with wild ideas of what they could be used for 'someday'-well, I'm hoping to make it a year of somedays. Still haven''t even begun organizing, sigh.

Since I am trying to destash, my method for making things is called "scrounging"...when you force yourself to use what you have, I think it does make you much more creative! Cheesy

I love hodgepodge!  You did it so well...my favorite crafts are those that are saved from the dumpster!!  Seeing things in a new way is a gift you have...

I really need to be better at scrounging. Unfortunately, I get these visions in my head of how I want things to be and if my stash doesn't provide the necessary color etc. for my vision, then I'm going to to go out and buy. Plus I have a bit of perfectionism that really makes it hard for me to let go.
