Kookaloo, I love your hats. Are you interested in swapping?

I really don't get a lot of destashing done for the moment.

Building bunkbeds for the kids doesn't exactly require fabric Sad

I wish my lipstick was a little more ... HALLUCINOGENIC!

JessKelly: Ooooooooooooooh, I LOVE your Mum's pillow...GREAT job...She's gonna FLIP!  Is the red section chenille?  Looks like it has alot of texture.

I have my snowmen on ALL FOUR WALLS of the workspace and actually this shot was taken over a year ago so there's MORE craft bins and MORE snowmen!   Shocked

Taramor: THANK YOU...The space only "looks" organized because the pic was taken during the holidays and I have alot of friends over...lol!  Any other time of the year it's a WAR ZONE!   Wink

Here's a shot of my last finished project...I was able to use up vintage valentine scrap that I was holding on to for at least two years!

I haven't really done much this month, but I did manage to use two skeins of ruffle yarn to give to a co-worker!

Everyone's progress is so inspiring! My rehearsal schedule finally got a little lighter, so yesterday I was able to rearrange my room and give my self a larger crafting area! Everything's still a mess from moving everything, but hopefully today and tomorrow I can get everything organized. While moving things around, I also found my camera! I can finally take pics of my slow stash busting! Grin

Kookaloo_Starr, that hat looks like it is flawlessly made!

Thanks MADsLucky13. The red section is very textured you're absolutely right, but the light kind of washed out the detail of the fabric. It's an upholstery fabric, kind of like a silky woven carpet.  Seems that holding onto the vintage valentine scrap of yours for all that time paid off, you've given it new life Smiley

PM me and we'll talk about it Smiley

I have a huge piece of turquoise/pink batik butterfly fabric that I want to make into something wearable. When killing time on Friday I nipped into one of our charity shops and found a wonderful purple paisley smock/tunic and it was my size too  Cheesy I'm trying to make a pattern from it to use my turq. batik & some pretty pink ribbon to trim around the neckline. I measured my ribbon against the original garment and I should just have enough  Grin

Everyone loved the art room turned lounge and the band I hosted was impressed by how comfortable everything was in there and were able to sleep well, also the party went amazingly well considering it started at 1:40am after the show they preformed in and went til 5:30am and because of rain we couldn't have fire in the fire pit out back.
I made a few huge crockpot lasagnas, a chicken and brown rice dish and lots of bread. Lots of leftovers but everyone ate their fill and loved it!
I has definitely been worth the extra effort to make the art room adjustable and much of the storage portable, I don't think I would have done as well without this list, now I just need to finish the last of the sorting but some of that may have to wait til warmer weather since the garage is not well insulated.

What do you do when you can't sleep at 1AM on a Thursday evening?  Go through your FQ stash and make a tiny tote, apparently.

This size is an old stand by of mine for "I have no idea what to do with this" fabric.  They're perfect for one skein projects, lunch, impromptu purses, or gift bags.  I'll probably be making quite a few more to work through the not-quite-my-style fabric to give to my mother, because she rather likes them too.

Unfortunately for my destashing, but fortunately for me, I got a new job! I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics the other day to buy a pattern for scrubs (new job is in a hospital) because they were 5/$5 and also to buy two clips to fix some dog harnesses for my old job (another case of "I know I have some, but had to buy more because I couldn't find them in my stash"). I wound up buying a dress pattern and a pattern for vintage baby clothes for my cousin who is expecting. Not horrible, but still, I should have been stronger...
I've been trying to use up the same skein of cotton yarn and have made a few more scrubbies and have been practicing my circles, but have ripped apart almost all of them. Even watching on youtube, I can't quite "get" new stitches Tongue
Everyone seems to be making good progress, organising their craft rooms and getting stuff done! I haven't seen one thing that anyone has posted that I don't like!
