wild yellow by paloetic ... taking a break, on Flickr

April Themes

Color: Yellow
Pattern: Floral
For: The garden or great outdoors.
Challenge: Spring Cleaning time. We've all got things in our stash that we've been meaning to use eventually, if only we could figure out what to do with that sweater's worth of hot pink and purple yarn we've been saving since 1987 and have long since lost the pattern. Nothing says you have to keep it forever. You can take those oddities to the Goodwill, give them to a friend, or a local crafting group.

Cute flipflops Milady, just in time for the weather to go all wintery again   Roll Eyes Apparently we've got snow warnings for the coming week - if they'd told me that yesterday as I was sat out in a deckchair I would have sworn it was an April Fools prank  Shocked
Sorry to hear of your trials and tribulations, I hope the next month sees an improvement for you and for your Grandma.

So yeh, temps are back down into single figures in my home town today and what do I make out of the stash pile? That's right, a summer top. It's based on one a friend gave me last summer, I like the shape and its a good length for larger ladies  Wink
I just need to hem it and add neck & arm binding then wait for the weather to change again  Cheesy

I love that tiny weeny hat, splendid.

I've spent last week with a big round-to-it Grin. I've been working my way througha massive pile of mending. I'm going to call it stash prevention Cheesy. If I hadn't mended stuff then it would have moved from the almost wearable heap into stash. That's how I acquire the vast majority of my fabric stash, and for that matter some of the yarn stash! In fact, I'm down to 2 things on my sewing list and one of those should be done from scratch.

The theme works out well - I just made a resolution that I would clean out/organize one thing a week (like a closet or a storage box), so I guess each time I get to one that's my crafting stuff, I'll have to post stuff. Smiley

Too cold to wear it at the mo' but I'll be ready for the sun when it comes back. The black top is to show how the hem hangs when I'm not waving my wings  Wink

It is a great top, Kookaloo! And it looks so pretty on you.
And Gaudiknigth - lovely themes for April. And thank you for making the themes, they are so inspiring. I haven't finished my March project, but I will in a few days time. And it is all thanks to you - whitout your challenge, my unfinished object would have stayed in the bin. Smiley
