Dulcet, I love the idea of Frederick Douglass as a happy lime-green lion! Cheesy I also think its funny that he sat around for a year without limbs. Maybe we should each post an inventory of our WIPs, to try to shame ourselves into finishing more of them! Embarrassed

Can someone explain about Vanna White yarn? Vanna has her own line of yarn? Why?

I'm still at the organizing stage, but have made a few tiny breakthroughs. Not big enough to show up in a photo yet, but eventually they'll coalesce into something you can actually see!

She is an avid crocheter, I believe. Even though she's a fellow South Carolinian and I would love to support her, I don't really like her yarn. It feels extra scratchy to me. If I'm gonna buy cheap acrylic yarn (which I mostly do), I buy Caron or I Love This Yarn. I still love Vanna herself, though!

Another hat to use up those oddments that are haunting me  Smiley As usual there wasn't enough to complete the hat so I did the rib in plain grey.

That hat looks great Kookaloo_Starr. I like that the band on the bottom is a solid color.

Vanna White is definitely a queen of the afghans...I believe she also contributes many of her afghans to charity for auctions to raise money for various causes.  Her yarn is inexpensive and practical for a lot of people...I am currently making a huge afghan using her yarn...it does get softer when washed, but I agree, that is does feel a bit scratchy to me as well...and, at least all of it is from my stash---I had purchased over 60 skeins of it about 2 years ago...I used most of it for lapghans for a nursing home, and my current afghan will use 9 skeins...I believe there are only about 6 skeins left!!! YAY!

Kookaloo--you are on a roll with those divine hats....I really like that you are mixing it up--the grey band looks like you designed it that way!

I have been doing a lot of sewing from stash.  I have not purchased any new fabric except a couple yards that I needed to make "free shipping" status for an order for fabric for a swap.  
A couple of the items I made:  A Valentines Day Wreath

A pillow sham and throw pillow to match my quilt:

I just destashed two 2-yd pieces of fabric to a friend who's going to make some smocks.

I've told myself that I can't start any new projects until I finish my UFO's.  But seeing all of you guys' destash projects makes it hard!  Maybe I need to figure out a ratio.  Like finish three UFO's then I can start (and finish) a new project.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

I really like the heart wreath plainpineapple.


I finally have a few things finished and pictures taken.

Whole cloth quilt completely from stash. (I bought the material for this in 2011 and just now got around to making it).


Black and Pink Quilts. The squares are all from stash, but I had to buy the rest (solid pink, black, backing, and batting) in order to make it into a quilt. (I've had the squares since 2009).
