Your fabric hat looks so fun, Kook!

I haven't taken photos of everything i've been making, but here are a few.

A bunch of baby hats.

This is for a friend's new baby, but i haven't gotten her address yet, so i have no photos of them on him.

I make hats for my nephew each month. This is his 5-month hat for March.

Got this yarn in a swap with Shannin last year.

I made two of these cowls. One for a friend and then one for me.

Some felt goodies for luckdragon, minus one mustache i didn't take a picture of.

Had to buy the snaps for the needlebook, but maybe they will help me use up more of my felt now.

My niece was invited to a birthday party. I found out i would be taking her the night before, and she had no present. Her friend's favorite color is purple. Smart girl.

These two are wips.
I thought the greens went well together in the store, when i bought them a long time ago... but all done up, i'm not so sure. Working on incorporating other colors.

This one so far is all stash yarn. But i had less of each color than i thought. Debating whether to buy more of each color or add other colors (which i don't really want to).

After years of trying to conceive and having no luck... my brother and sister-in-law finally had a baby boy thanks to embryo adoption. He's a preemie. He was born 8 days ago, 15 3/4" long, and weighing 3 pounds. I had some leftover yarn from when my other nephew was born, and i made him this tiny security blanket. It's on his bed in the NICU.

And after the NICU nurses saw his blanket, they all told my brother how much they love it, and that i should make them for all the NICU babies.
I've been buying yarn for those because i want them to have bright and cheerful and baby soft starghans, but for this one, i used some rainbow-y stuff from stash.

Last but not least... some of you from last year might remember i got a huge bag of yarn from my cousin. Her mom was going to make her a blanket when she was a baby, but she never did and decided to give her the yarn last year instead... and she gave it to me. Well, she and her husband are also trying to have a baby. They're trying IVF, again, and i'm just hoping and praying it works this time. I really want them to have this baby blanket i'm making from her yarn.

I think i might keep it like this, but i might do a couple more rows. I haven't decided. A lot of the colors are running out.

Whew. Did anybody get through all of that?

Great work on de-stashing. I got rid of a little fabric and doing small project for a swap.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

CLM-- your stacks of prepped fabrics make my fingers twitch!  It makes me realize that organized fabrics where I can see everything are much more inspiring than tossed-through piles that make me depressed at the mess.  I hope you get lots done!

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

bananaleg--wow!  That is a whole lot of yarn destashing!  I love the hat you made using the yarn you got in a swap...it is beautiful!

The purple hat and your niece are adorable!

CLM--I love that you have your sweaters all felted and ready to go...I think if I had more stuff ready to go, I would feel like using the stuff...

Ok so I started reading the "requirements" for this craft along and then some of the comments about organizing and how to do this and that. 10 pages later, I decided I had better stop reading and just sign up here already lol. I have so much stuff. It's daunting. It's depressing. It needs organizing. Hell, it just needs to get used!
We (4 people) live in a small 800 sq. foot apartment and my half of the entire wall length closet is filled with craft bins of fabric, paper, YARN, beads, candle making and miscellaneous everything. I have a chest of drawers filled with the same. My dresser is covered ontop and so is my sewing machine, the small table it's on and underneath it. HELP!
My goal this year is to only use what I have on hand. For everything. That said, I am giving myself a small allowance of $40 for items like glue sticks, thread, etc. other than that, no dice. Wish me luck! I look forward to awesome crafting time "together"!!

I've got tons of new stuff in my store!: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyWyldChild?ref=ss_profile

Welcome & good luck Audania1  Grin  Wink

I'm allowing myself to buy things that will enable me to use more of my stash (such as interfacing) but keeping a tally in my signature of how much I actually spend on craft supplies this year. If I can't make it mostly from stash then I'm looking for alternatives that can be made with what I already own  Smiley

I've used up a fair bit of ribbon, cord, and binding in some aprons today, the aprons have been cut for 6 months, I finally started putting them together.

Looking for 100% Cotton scraps.  Miss G wants to make a scrap quilt for as little $ as possible, so if you have something that she could use, please pm me.

fantastic work on that hat, especially lovely colour!
bananaleg I am not even sure where to start, you have a lots of skill and a lot of heart!
Audania1 I am very much looking forward to seeing what you craft; you have some excellent goals and I wish you all the luck in the world!

I have quite a few crafts which I am in the middle of but I have completed this...

I am hoping a perfect addition to a birthday present for an extroverted wild child social butterfly is a handcrafted jewellery roll/clutch to keep her spiky jewellery from getting lost while adventuring somewhere...because that is exactly what I made her Smiley I am not sure if you can see, but I quilted the already chaotic fabric with a jig saw pattern which I think she will appreciate.
