Oh, I amjust ever so delicate and sensitive, la.

I totally "heard" this as spoken by Kitty from Pride and Prejudice, heee. Needed this!

Destinking stuff for me usually means putting things outside or putting it through the wash again and again and again... until not smelly anymore (or ruined). I have issues with fragrances, too, funny.

All these great projects, and so many lovely pictures! And so many large projects.

In stashbusting news only I managed to destash some beads for a weightloss thingy, half a sheet for a crib sheet, some more towels for changing mat covers, and about two sheets of thick felt plus notions, a bit of ribbon and scraps for an easy busy book. That one was even made with pink! Didn't really make a dent, but they were all things I really wanted to get done.



The little busy book - four kinds of closures she meets with daily. I have to practise sewing on ribbon, I'm afraid.

And the beaded weight loss thing. I was planning to do something with two small jars, but then I didn't have the space to put those down. This is much more practical, I just pull own the little ring as I go along. Although, for the next six months, that ring will go up, no way around that.


February was very very busy, as was January, but the good thing about that is that I didn't even get a chance to buy anything crafty. (If you discount black paint for the handrail, that is. But we had to get that done before the steps get mounted and there isn't any left to be added to any stash that might or might not exist...) March is probably not going to be much better, but we are putting up our desk and bookshelves in the living room this weekend (please!), and that means lots of space in the craft room for me.

Aaand I bought a craft book today - on making lamp beads. So that is 0.00 for Jan-Feb, and 6.99 for March... All I can say is that book was put on hold for me by my husband, and it wasn't even full price. And I won't be getting any of the materials this year or anytime soon.

I only spent $3.50 in craft supplies this month. My yearly total is $4.55. I used up 3 skeins of yarn too.

March Themes


spring forest by Vilseskogen, on Flickr

Color:  green
Pattern:  flowers
For:  yourself
Challenge 1:  What can I do with this?  What is this?  Why was I saving this?  These are all questions you may have asked yourself over the past two months.  If you've come across stash that you can't quite figure the best use for, post a picture here and ask.  Who knows what another pair of eyes (or two) can come up with!?
Challenge 2: Any brave souls want to join me for a month long craft supply diet?  It's totally optional, and you get to choose how strict you want to be... (*runs for cover*)

Oh no.  I just bought a tube turner, and then I read this month's themes.  At least it was 50% off.

Inspiration without application is moot.

I am done buying supplies for this month but I have two birthdays and a little celebration that I wanted to make something special for with nothing really appropriate.

Oh how cool I have a project I am using that is half green. Smiley And this gives me inspiration to finish up a green dress to shirt re-do and then make green napkins from the left overs.

And I'm in on the diet gaudiknight...if...my buying new supplies for other people in my family is ok?

It looks as though everyone has been busy, it's great to see!

This project fits within the green theme for march but there's not a flower on it; I will have to add that to another project. 

This is the thermos cover I just completed. It's lined with the sleeve from a cashmere cardigan which had been involved in too many disasters to be wearable. I hand stitched it while it was on the thermos and there is a circle of felt stitched onto it as a base.

The fabric was heating up my hands as I stitched it so I'm certain it will keep my tea hot. It obviously only used a small amount of my stash but it used it up well!
