I have three projects this month with floral prints, 2 with yellow, and I REALLY REALLY need to spring clean before I go away at the end of the month.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

The blue camo yarn strikes again! Now I am making a crocheted round pillow to go in my living room. All the cushions that came with the couch & love seat are square. Definitely need another shape in here!

That mask was great!

Love the mask Milady. Any instructions available?

Adorable cushion covers craftylittlemonkey! I'm trying to bring more orange and yellow into my living room but what it really needs is repainting and I don't have the s available for that.

I got up early & in the mood to sew this morning. I got half of my shrug made and my serger started getting temperamental so I think I'll switch to knitting for the rest of the morning. The lower looper keeps coming undone and I have to rethread the whole damned thing and I don't have the patience today  Angry
Used up a piece of print and a piece of plain from my freebie fabrics  Smiley

Great tutorial on the panties, Crafty. I think it explained everything very well. And I love your many-colored stash of panties. Life is too short to boring underwear!
I like the mask, Mylady - it is cute with the little hole for the nose.

I used this pattern if anyone wants to have a go, it's very easy, I did kind of frog it towards the last two rows hence I have a nose fringe lol!  Cheesy http://craftdisasters.blogspot.co.uk/2010/09/crocket-lace-mask.html
Thanks for all the kind comments.

I love those pillows, they almost remind me of the sun symbol in tangled!

Thanks for the feedback Taramor! I really hope all the steps are clear, the bit where you sew the crotch piece sort of inside out to get the seams to be hidden can be confusing.

Kookaloo, there is nothing more frustrating than a serger that's out of whack unless it's a serger that goes out of whack mid-project! My sympathies. I take mine in for maintenance yearly whether it seems to need it or not just to be sure it's always in proper working order. I have zero idea how to reset timing etc myself, I should take a course on sewing machine repair.

Spring cleaning today at home. If you can believe there's another load of stuff to go to the thrift store, Tongue. At this point you'd think I would have nothing left but somehow there isn't any visible floor in here today at all, lol.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

Who has that much fleece to get such awesome scraps?! CLM!!! That's who!  Those cushions are wonderful!  So bright and sunny!

When I was finished backing a giant tshirt quilt with squares of fleece I gave away 2 1/2 garbage bags of the stuff! All cut up from clothes bought at the thrift store so, ya, every colour of the rainbow and then some, lol.

Funny, while finally making some of those recycled tshirt panties the teensy wee little scraplettes from the serger are SO pretty, every colour and wonderful texture. Of course even I can't justify saving those but I did hand them off to the small girl who has been using them for hair on popsicle people.

Ok kids, bookmark this link if you don't already have it, 50+ shopping bag patterns!
My fave is the strawberry one, we actually bought something identical at a store but now I'll have to make one myself too.

Woo hoo!  For the IYP swap, I made a hoopla for TroubleT all out of stash!  I don't want to overpost it, so here's the link:

My stash is slowly - very very slowly being whittled down.  Slowly.
