I am off the mark for February finally!!!  I have made 1 & half skirts.  I am struggling with the second because it is difficult to concentrate whilst watching the rugby  Grin.
I have been slowly working on my knitted jumper too but that takes me so much longer, definitely can't knit and watch rugby.

Hopefully, I will have time to finish my second skirt before our guest arrives later.

Pics to follow.

Note: This is really helping me work through my stash.  Soon I can buy more........... (I guess I haven't really stopped, just slowed down a bit!!)

Man, when I look at everyone else's projects, it makes me want to lengthen my own list... for example, I'm thinking maybe I also need a thread catcher and a repainted-frame pin cushion. So cool!

For the past couple of weeks I've been making journals/notepads out of record album covers (and the leftover scrap from the game boards I used to decorate my shoebox project, and Girl Scout cookie boxes...) I've made nine of them!











For the inside pages, I used fun and interesting papers that had at least one page with "writable area". It keeps to the recycled/repurposed theme, and also makes flipping through it a little adventure of discovery! It has been great to finally find a worthy purpose for a lot of the content of my paper stash.

I may have to try to sell these at craft fairs, because at this point I can't stop making them, but I already have way too many of them for me to use personally...

Krafty_Karasu - are those coins in that jewelry that are punched out? That's neat!!

MissingWillow - love the palmistry hand pillow - did you embroider it or was it done by machine, I can't tell  Smiley

endymion - cool notebooks! I love mixed paper books like that. And what a great way to stashbust!


I'm continuing my crocheting streak with a few more hats, a head scarf, and a "lace" collar. I love stash busting! And I never quite realized how much purple yarn I have.



I'm in love with this basic chunky ear flap hat. It is so easy and relaxing to crochet and I love that it shows off the gorgeous colors of the yarn so well. I can see why some people love crocheting hat after hat after hat  Cheesy And I also think I've realized that I enjoy short little crochet projects vs long ones: yay for instant gratification!

Here's the collar. It looks pretty but came out a lot bigger than I was expecting. Probably has to do with the thickness of the yarn.



And the head scarf, which was originally going to be a full shawl but I am not hugely fond of how the self striping sock yarn I used was turning out with this pattern. I still have tons of that yarn to use up.



In other crafting, I made a thank you gift for the Givers and Needers swap and it was received a bit ago so I can post now.



I think I might have to mount my stamps like this. It made stamping the images so much easier.

That's all for now. Back to my most recent crochet project  Wink

Those stamps are a great thank you gift!  What kind of supplies did you receive?  The pillow is machine embroidery, I did the design.

Was it your blog where you were showing off your new embroidery machine that could embroider whatever you designed? That is so cool!! I can't wait to see what you do next.

I received a bunch of fabric which is awesome for my bags and other miscellaneous sewing projects  Smiley
