I've been sort of missing in action for a while. I've been watching, but not often posting: fabulous work recently though.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

That1girl--I adore your crochet flower pins!

Also, wow--the U of M hat is wonderful! 

Is the banner for your crafting fairs?

bananaleg - That is a marvelous shade of blue on the cuffs.  I wish I had yarn like that in my stash.

that1girl - Amazing work!  You've been really busy.


I've de-stashed a bunch of paper recently between making a picture book for the Little Visitor Swap and a mini bookbinding class I taught at a nearby library.  Nothing to show for it as far as pictures go, though.  Now I just need a good use for paper scraps, since I never seem to use an entire sheet.

I would love to try one of those paper mosaics...but it seems to be a whole lot of work using very little paper stash...I think paper is the hardest stash to use...

To bad, That1girl. You do make such lovely things. Never doubt that. But I think it is allways so difficult to sell at craftshows. And I must admit, often when I am a costumer at craft-stands, I get so confused by having to choose among all those marvelous handmade things, that I end up buying nothing at all, or just one or two small thing. Maybee you could try selling at etsy instead - at least you wouldn't have to sit so many hours at a stand. But I haven't tried, so I really don't know if it is a good idea.

Aw that stinks that1girl.  Sad

Better luck next time? And may I second trying Etsy or  your local flea market or farmer's market? Hand made items tend to sell well at those places around here.

I really like your banner, that1girl. I've done the craft fair at my old church since i was a kid, and I've never had a ton of luck. But each year, as i get better with my crafts, i seem to do better. I love doing it, though. I do have an etsy, but i look forward to the craft fair every November. You'll have more luck (and so much fun) if you stick with it because you really do have great stuff to sell.

My Doctor Who swap partner received, so here are the items made from stash.
Dalek wristers:
 

TARDIS seeing caddy with a pin cushion lid:
 

And... even though this yarn is still pretty new, i bought it for the swap, so all the leftover is now technically stash... Right? Right. Anyway, i made my partner a pair of socks, and with the leftover, i made myself a pair. There want enough blue for a whole pair, so i used whore and black and added stripes. I plan on making a blue one so i can trade them out.
