Nice use of stash...

I wrapped my fabrics this year, too, and am so glad I did...it has been a struggle to keep up, though, as I tend to want to get very messy again and pull everything out of the bins...

I have been very good about cutting my scraps or tossing them on a regular basis...but I still have to work on not buying when I feel stressed...which is a lot! Grin  I justify that it is better than eating under stress as making stuff is healthier, right?

Mostly for swaps, mostly....Grin

CLM, that little dog is so cute! 

SenatorOrgana, I love the zipper pouch -- great color set Smiley

I started out the month crafting like crazy, but we've had a bit of a heat spell and now I don't want to do anything but sit around.  And Baby Boy has decided that he likes using my lungs as his pillows  Huh

But I've got almost a day's worth of newborn/small cloth diapers finished and a bunch of stash used.  I love the bug print fabric; I was sad to see I only had one fat quarter of it and the diaper used most of it. 





I also finished a 14x14" granny square for the Snuggles Project, got started on a larger one, and cut/pinned some jersey knit I found for a maxi dress.  Btw, I hate working with that stuff  Undecided

Aren't they?  I was gushing to hubs about what a cute little bum Baby Boy will have and he was like, "They are cute, but you know they'll be filled with sticky s**t most of the time."  Way to rain on my parade Tongue

I neatened and sorted my yarn stash this summer.  I have done well by only buying when I absolutely HAVE to for swaps.  It takes a lot off stress away being able to find everything, and see what I have easily.

I totally hear you! I haven't swapped in a while but just recently signed up for two and I am hoping to be able to bust some  stash and only buy what is needed. Still, I may end up giving a bin or two of craft stuff away because there is just too much. I live in an apartment and, though I got rid of two boxes of stuff the last time I went through it, I still have way too much stuff. My husband agrees lol.


Those little diapers are adorable! Even if they are intended for messiness haha

The beadwork on that cymbal pouch is beautiful! I have zero patience for that stuff, so kudos to you!

I had to go back 4 pages to get caught up...

Great cards, Gaudi!
Love the bath pouf, banana leg.  I should whip up a few of those with the bits of cotton I have...
Tex scrapper, that's a very lovely bag. The color and print are great for a summer bag.
CLM, your so great with scraps! And those dogs are awesome.
Senator Organa, that pouch is super cute. And the sewing machine cover is lovely.
Mrs. Awesome Pants, tell hubby it'll make diaper changes just a bit more tolerable looking at those fun prints Wink

Always, terrific fabric collection! So colourful.
Wow, that's a lot of diapers! And as for the sticky s__t better inside the diaper than out of it, ha!

The internet connection out here bites but after 2 days I finally got the pics loaded to post in time for the 10th anniversary challenge. I finished a last batch of 30 monsters and while I haven't quite crushed the sweater stash I sure have come close!

Definitely a monster EXPLOSION!  They're all so cute and look like they'd be super cuddly.  The kind of thing you just want to pile up and snuggle under Cheesy
