I do have rather fabulous sparkly socks so I'm happy to have de-stashed my pink/metallic yarn *lol* there are mistakes in my lace knitting but I'm not about perfection so they suit me  Wink


I commented on your Great A'tuin in the bag swap but didn't mention the bags  Embarrassed they're great. I loved your stencilled tree and the umbrella pocket was an inspired addition  Smiley[/color]

Ok so I found this craftalong  awhile ago and I was reading got to page 11 and my husband asked what I was looking at and I told him. So with his encouragement and my desire to destash I am wondering if I can join the fun a little late.

I plan to keep reading and enjoying the lovelys everyone has posted so far.

Oh yes dear, jump on in! I did not join in until I think late August of my first year for this CAL. Smiley

Kookaloo_Starr, those socks are cute! I love pink & sparkly!  Grin

Well, I ordered 2 lots of yarn on Etsy yesterday... oops! I guess it's a Birthday present (Saturday is my bday) to myself. And most of the yarn will be used to make pet beds for the animal shelter, so it's for a good cause!

Also, as far as the challenges for this month, I did use up all of my red yarn on a pet bed. I'm at work now, but I'll try to take a pic in the next few days. Also, my yarn stash has just about been cut in half since the new year started. I need to start using up some of my other stash, though.

On a side note, does anyone know what to do with rug yarn?

I loved the turtle...I printed out the template and pattern a while back and just have not had the time...but it is too cute not to make!

I also loved your stenciled bags...

K-star--the socks are quite an accomplishment!

nisforneville--hey--yarn is a good BD present! Cheesy

I dug into my decorator and upholstery fabrics...hubs wants a curtain in the doorway of our laundry room...I showed him what I had on hand, and he was happy with most of it...YAY!  I can use up some stash and use the money for something else! Cheesy

aprettyness--did you make the back and the front of the mug rug the same?
the back is all just one piece of fabric. not nearly as fun haha

Aprettymess,  I wonder if your lining was a bit big?  It looks like you sewed an 'envelope', turned it right side out, filled it with the lining, then quilted it.  If that's how you did it, then the machine would have pulled the fabric smaller, leaving your lining to big, causing it to buckle like it does.  If you pin pin pin pin pin pin the heck out of it, it's less likely to pull, too.
i did do the sew inside out and turn thing which was probably my first mistake  Tongue i was too lazy to have to add the edges lol. but i didnt have my lining inside while i sewed it all together. i will pin much more next time and be less lazy. that may explain why it is a bit bubbly in some areas

I'm going through our clothes right now and getting rid of anything that isn't natural fibers, I can't tell you how tempted I am to keep it all to use in crafts but it's going to the thrift store, I'm forcing myself.
i dont have the strength... lol i have piles EVERYWHERE of clothes i cant part with because im sure i can craft with

the Leaning Tower of Yarnia  

ahhahahahah i love that!

I want to make a bunch of red hearts and leave them randomly at different places to make people aware...
awesome idea! i may have to do that too  Smiley

laughing lark that pic of your kitty in his bed is perfect! you caught his tongue mid lick lol
ysmeine i love your cutout for pix! very cute
all the projects are awesome! there are too many to single out comments but one i must comment on is the beards and mustaches! omg how fun!
last week i was so tired! i think school finally caught up to me and i pretty much slept when i wasnt working or in school... but i think im normalizing now and totally stoked for february themes!
themes: i love red! love polka dots! thinking of what to make my bff for vday. largest dent: by far fabric lol
thanks for the pointers on the mug rug. i want to perfect these little things before taking a stab at a real quilt
i made myself an apron but i have to photograph it still... hoping to be able to keep up with life again  Tongue
