Good luck with the sale J_Kieviet.

It is such a good job that I cut down my stash with the charity shop donations last month, I've just lost my craft room but gained my youngest son back home. It's a fair swap  Wink

I'm currently destashing on a blanket project. It's not 100% destash though, just the backing fabric and the yarn.

Glad to hear that you have your son home with you...you can just craft somewhere else for a bit while you spoil him! Wink

Good to see that you are joining in on the fusion blanket!  I love it--get to use fabric and yarn!  It is also very quick and enjoyable...I have 12 squares all done--12 to go! Cheesy

ha ha thanks for the many links to baby burp cloths and bibs all!

I got up this morning and made three of each for a 1 pm baby shower!

The new mom-to-be loved them and I used up a whole three fat quarters of stash flannels! YAY!  I forgot to take pics because I was in a huge rush!

How did September happen already?  Time for Themes!

Color: Your favorite color.
Pattern: Plaid
For: Organizing.  In the US kids are going back to school, and all the school supplies in the stores are mighty tempting.  Maybe you can make yourself something to store the 3 million colored pencils you bought on sale. 
Challenge: We've all bought new materials so we could start a new craft, but never got around to actually sitting down and learning it.  Perhaps this is the month to finally do so?

Plaid - my western costume for fall rally:)
Fave colour - blue, my back school outfit - I am praying I get called to teach the class I had in June tomorrow (the official teacher just decided to retire on Friday)
organizing - containers painted with chalk paint labels to store art and craft supplies in
Challenge -  Shocked I actually don't have any stuff to still try - other than the chalk board paint for above.

I have 6 yards of plaid that I want to make a dress from and I am waiting for empty cereal boxes to make in/out boxes for my desk.

The dress may take most of two months, but that is ok since it is black, orange, silver and white. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Orange-Plaid-Halloween-Fabric-/280956898164?pt=US_Fabric&hash=item416a560b74 I don't know if you can see the silver thread shot through out.

I want to make a dress on the bias, very much in the 50s style. I am thinking of something like this first picture, but I am not certain about the bat-wing style top.

And my favorite choice, but how would I make those sleeves? Any one know of a pattern that looks like this?
