I spent three days organizing my cotton fabrics, fat quarters, etc. Here is one of the bins...ready to destash!



My fat quarters and some of my bins...finally! Cheesy


Let's see how long this lasts and if I ever get around to organizing the other fabrics stuffed in my walk in closet! Cheesy

These are from August. For travel I decided to make a beach memory necklace. I took a small med vial and crocheted around it and glued on a shell.


This is my fire side shawl that started with some orange blend Manos, then I found some rust I liked and finally received some burgundy Malabrigo in a swap. I worked them together with a natural brown wool. This was for the orange category. I have been wanting to make a shawl for awhile. I actually started this a couple years ago then frogged it.


I had more bottles in different sizes, so I crochetd covers for them as well.


For September, I'm not sure yet. I guess my favorite color would be brown or cream if we are talking yarn. For organizing I mostly want to get rid of things. I would like to make some covers for my 1 gal carbides instead of wrapping them in random shirts and aprons.

RLB, i don't have any advice, but all of those dresses are lovely. I can't wait to see yours.

Beth, that jacket is awesom, and the colors you chose are amazing together. So looking forward to seeing yours all finished.

Always, you go with all that organizing. It all looks so nice and... organized. Smiley

ysmeine, your shawl looks great. I love the tiny crochet.

I finished this hat today, but i think i might want to add a pompom. What do you think?
 
It isn't fitted, it's roomy and slouchy, which is why i think a pompom would be cute.

This infinity scarf/cowl is from some handspun i got in a swap a while ago.
 

I got the yarn for this a long time ago and finally finished my first adult-sized blanket.
 

 Some Disney Princess beanbags for a friend's daughter.
 

And this extra slouchy hat. I learned to knit pleats, but i need to redo the ribbing and bindoff.

alwaysinmyroom your organizing looks great. What did you use to wrap up your material? I love how that looks, that is one of my big problems is what to do with my material. 

So I finished all the squares for the jacket last night, now on to joining them and working the rest of it. I also got some material cut out to sew the next costumes, but I woke up yesterday with a nasty cold, and I feel even worse today so not sure if anything crafty will get done, leaning toward the couch, hot tea, and netflix.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

Inspiration without application is moot.

alwaysinmyroom, the organization looks great and easy to navigate.

Thanks for looking through your patterns too.

ysmeine, the shawl looks great and I love the crochet around the little bottles .

bananaleg great hat; love the button stitching detail. Have you considered placing a short tassel on top with I-cord?

I admit, I am a sucker for tassels. Wink

bananaleg--the full size blanket is great!  I love what you did with the handspun--shows off the textures nicely!

Pleats in knitting..now that is interesting...I will have to google that one!

I also love tassels!

RLB, you ate the second person to suggest a tassel. I hadn't even thought of doing a tassel, so I'll have to look into it. Interesting.
