Congratulations on the pregnancy, Anna.wahnsinn!  A good way to not gain excess weight while pregnant is loads of healthy food!  I gained the most with my first, because I ate a lot of goodies and ended up with gestational diabetes.  I didn't indulge with the subsequent pregnancies, and didn't get GD or gain excessively.  Good luck, with both the pregnancy and the weight loss that will follow!  The beads are a clever way to track your progress.

Yay for plaid!  Plaid thermos covers, plaid dresses, plaid all the things!

Thanks, Belladune! I actually lost weight during my first pregnancy and with the birth, of course, but I regained nearly all of that. Even nursing doesn't help. Well, I'll see. Luckily, the kid loves fruit and veggies, I'm trying to match her...

Cannot wait to feel better again and actually tackle all my projects around the house, curtains, cushions, two quilts, ... toddler & baby stuff, of course... sorting through a trillion books, things like that.

Awesome projects!  I'm really loving all the plaid, and the giant doily/small table cloth is amazing.

For those joining me on a suppy diet - you get to make the rules.  I'm going to be going cold turkey, but whatever makes the most sense for you, whether it's not buying materials to sit around, or no more impulse yarn buys - whatever!  You know your stash, project plans, and willpower better than anyone.

Nothing to show so far for the March themes, but I got my crafting space cleared off from the February themes.  It's not large, but it works.  Sewing machine is stashed under the desk, paper crafting supplies are in the red tote on the shelves.  I still need to work on organization for thread, ribbons, etc. but I have space to breathe again.

Thanks guys.  I should mention that everything for the jacket and doily were from stash.

I have stash dolls to share when my Dotee and IYP partners receive  Smiley  I also have a doily to show when I've got it blocked. It was UFO that I misplaced the pattern for so I've sewn the ends in and called it complete!

Love the plaid jacket!  So stylish...

I am not a plaid person, but I could have my mind changed with such cute things...I have loads of plaid given to me...

The framed Mario alphabet turned out wonderful!!!

Anna--what a great idea to use such a visual aid!  I think for spring I am going to try it!  Also, congrats on your pregnancy! 

That doily is just beautiful...I hope in my life I will crochet something as lovely to pass down!

Here is my destash/non-destash story:

A friend of mine called me on March 1 while I was having my birthday dinner with my family...his mother died six months ago and he and his sisters found boxes and boxes of yarn, fabric, supplies, etc.  Did I want to come over and go through it and take some home?  Left the chicken on my plate and drove 25 minutes to get there...wow--there was so much stuff!  I came home with a huge box, at least three feet tall...of snaps, zippers, fabric, interfacing, knitting supplies,...they were so generous!  I hope to make a few small things for them to keep in memory of their mother, who was an incredibly talented woman!!  She did everything!  Embroider, crochet, knit, sew clothes, make curtains, knit baby clothes...bead, paint, just wow..

Long story short:  I added to my stash but at no cost...I count it as my birthday present! Cheesy

Oh how wonderfully gracious and caring. What an awesome birthday present and Happy B-day from one March baby to another!  Grin

It took forever for the girls to get through the stuff...so many memories and stories...I love hearing it all...HOWEVER...it also made me realize that I need to clear out my stash...there were so many unfinished projects...she had patterns pinned to fabrics that were never cut...half finished skirts and jackets...I don't want my family to have to spend six months going through my stuff like this family did... Sad

Always--that was exactly how I felt when my Grandma died and we found tons of unused fabric.  And when we thought we had been through it all, we found a dresser full of more fabric.  It makes me feel connected to her to know that she kept all those little scraps, too.  (She lived through the depression.)  But how sad that she never got to use some of her fabrics.
