Thanks! The pattern is free on ravelry.com the person who made it also made options to make it a bear, kitten , or a bunny Smiley

Love the scarfs and the display. I think I need to mae myself one of those. Thanks for the inspiration.

My Dad's mother passed away this fall and I inherited tons of her yarn. I think I am going to start my first afgan with her yarn and use up a lot of the yarn in the process. A blanket it a better memory I think than all this random unused yearn laying around the apartment. Smiley Excited and nervous to take on such a huge project it will be my biggest crochet undertaking yet! Grin

I destashed some pink yarn, but it was more of a fail.I tried to make a baby hat with owl cables. It seemed to ruffle at the ribbing, so I ripped that part out. I then added a scalloped edge as it wanted ruffle still.

Two projects to show! My partner received her tote bag, so now I can post -

Mermaid Appliqued tote



I made this over the weekend, but it's not 100% De-stash. I did have to buy two extra bags of pearls to finish it out Sad

S Door Wreath

Isn't it aggravating to have to buy more stuff for a project that was supposed to be "stash?"  But - hey- as long as it gets done!

I did a bit of paper-crafting this weekend.  I took all my theater and movie tickets out of the desk drawer where they were rattling around and put them in a 6 x 6 scrapbook I'd bought a while ago for who-knows-what purpose.  They didn't all fit, so I'm hoping to find some extra pages to put in, but my local craft stores don't sell any that small.  No pictures, but I'm quite pleased with the result.

I brought a giant box of supplies over to our yearly Valentine's making afternoon, and we got a lot of cards made.  But you can't really see any difference, because it was all scraps.  Story of my life.

My favorite card, just so I have something to show for myself.

Ehinders, I love that thread catcher idea. It's something I could really use, as I'm one of those people who's obsessive about snipping threads, but my wastebasket is on the wrong side of the sewing machine, and I waste a lot of time turning around to throw bits away. Did you back the weighted part with some non-slip material, or does it stay in place okay without it?

Wulf

Wulf- I didn't back it with anything. Just the same fabric that's on the front. I had some poly-pellets leftover from making my DD a weighted blanket, so I put those on the bottom and stuffed it with regular poly-fill on top. It stays put nicely. I made sure to give it enough weight that it doesn't slide off. I used this tutorial: http://mypolkadotapron.blogspot.com/2011/05/thread-catcher-tutorial.html?spref=bl if interested.

ale0059- I love that pink puppy. super cute.

texscrapper- Love the mermaid tote! The Intital door wreath is awesome! Been wanting to make one for awhile now....maybe this week. Smiley

guadiknight- I love the mice on that card. Too cute!

Hope nobody minds me popping in so late, but I'd like to participate too.

Looking through other peoples stashes on this craftalong I can see that mine isn't absolutely massive but it is diverse and disorganised which means nothing is getting used which kind of defeats the purpose of collecting it all in the first place. By joining this craftalong I plan to assemble my stash in one place (no more keeping it in gaps in the kitchen cupboards, linen closet, dresser drawers etc), organise it so that I can plainly see and access everything and then (the exciting part) craft with it. Though organising can be pretty exciting too Smiley I'm finding you all very inspirational and will post some progress soon.

I'm off to tackle my stash. Right this instant.
