I've seen new interviews with the paper clip house guy.  Part of the trade path led him through Vancouver, so the local news folks all did stories.  It was 5 or 6 years ago at this point I think...

I broke down under the stress of life and purchased yarn...no projects in mind...I thought I had the "shop under stress" thing under control...

Confessing here so I can move on and look for projects...Sad

What a clever idea with those baby bibs. I should try something like that. I have a six month old nephew who I'm sure could use them.


The other day in the car between shopping trips, I made a short infinity scarf out of yarn I have had for three or more years. I only had two small balls of it, but I finally made something with them. I still have not uploaded the photo but I made it this past Sunday.

My yarn stash is slowly going down so now I have room for what I will be handspinning. I already have an idea on what I am going to do with the odds and ends from the yarns. I'd like a nice big and colorful blanket for my bed when it's too warm for the comforter but too cold without something a bit heavier.

Thanks for all the compliments. I think those hand towels in the dollar sections are so cute, but you can only have so many hand towels. Wink

vampedangel14: The bibs are pretty easy. I just cut a round hole by tracing around something. Then I just sew t-shirt ribbing from the fabric store around it. Done! My favorite bibs when my DD were little were these kind (they kept her the cleanest!)

I love those baby bibs. Clever and useful.

I acutally destashed about 600 records today at an indoor yard sale, but I have plenty to craft with and now have about 4 boxes more space and money in my pocket. LOL

I sold a very large box of fabric for $5, yes, giveaway, pretty much, but that also freed up space. A few crafting supplies sold. I really hated having people in my messy space. Only one couple today that wasn't a gray hair like me. They saw my messy house and left without buying anything. :-)

You know, if I came into an indoor yard sale at just about anyones house, if I saw a big box of anything crafty, i'd have been all over it, messy or not!

Lovesclutter Give-away price or not, its a great feeling to make space and get a little money while doing it.  And it probably made someone else really, really happy.

I've got two little quick destash project from last night (Thursday seems to be my late-night sewing night, no idea why).  I actually finished the entire scrap of fabric with them, which makes me feel really proud, even if it was a small piece to begin with.  Nothing had to be put away at the end!

Very nice tiny projects gaudiknight! I need to come up with more tiny projects; I keep small pieces of fabric thinking they will be useful but I don't actually come up with a use for them. I might have to write a list. Lists solve everything Wink

Belladune, we think alike. Had a girl call that missed the sale, and will give/sell more fabric when I'm off again. I already have a lot more space in the living room. If you guys need anything cheap or will pay the postage, just pm me. Especially paper crafters. LOL
