Sooooo... It kind of counts as destashing, but kinda not... That's the down side to creating a usable product.... However, I'm a few scoops lighter in my dyes, and have converted about 6oz of fibre into yarn. (well more then that but i've not got pics of some of it yet.  i've got finish the one I have started before I do a big twist setting session - it saves water to do it in a big batch)
The yarns:

Ladybug yarn. #1 by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

Ladybug yarn. #2. by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

The results of my Dye day. Everything started off white! (as white as wool gets, anyway Smiley )

Random wool batts by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

What the lady bug started as. by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

The intermediate step from fibre to yarn:

Feels good to be spinning for the sake of it. Now just to use it up into something pretty.  I'm thinking toques.

Belladune' I love that yarn! Im always impressed by those who spin. I want to do it one day but it think my husband will say "too many crafts!" lol

And I love the scrapy skirts! So beautiful! I may steal that idea. They look like they are twirling even when standing still.

Dulcet, those skirts are so pretty. I haven't made a lot of clothes for my kids, by the time I complete a project they've outgrown that size! Maybe when they've finished growing, lol.

Susi, I have only used safety eyes so far which are ok for babies but there's always the chance of one failing so the embroidered eyes are even better. Who would give one of my little horrors to an infant though? Gah, some sick and twisted parent (like me, lol!).

Beautiful work Bella! I am so envious of ppl who can spin. I love all things wool, including the keeping of sheep. They are adorable! Well, ok, the shearing bit isn't exactly fun, nor the cleaning of all that mucky wool at the outset. But the rest of it is wonderful.

Two more monsters last night.


This is the one my youngest likes best. She's attracted to the weirdest things that girl.


I only brought one more on this trip and it's fairly simple, then I'll be onto the socks. I confess to finding them dull at the moment after all these strange creatures. I can't resist them for long though, I do so love all things sock!

Thanks!  CLM, I like the mucky work! Well, sort of. I do enjoy seeing it go from some ugly to shiny and lustrous. Then to batts and then to yarn and then to something wearable.

I love this skirts too.  I have a small stash of fabric that needs to be turned into clothes.... If only I could find my surfaces in my craft room...Undecided

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

When my girl was very young, she insisted that what she wanted to be for halloween was a spooky ballerina. So, adorable pink ballet outfit, and creepy white face makeup, black makeup around her eyes, maybe a line of red for blood...You get the idea. It was exactly what she wanted, but it was a hoot seeing the reactions! At first sight was an angelic tiny girl all in pink, prompting an 'aww', then as she got closer they saw the creepy makeup. Confused the heck out of them!
So yeah, sometimes sweet little toddlers like creepy stuff.  Grin
And I love your little monster plushies!

When I saw this on here I had to have it, thank goodness it was listed for sale. It arrived at our house and the girl FREAKED out over it. It's seriously still one of her favourite things.

Then I made a sock cthulu and she freaked over that!

She is totally beyond, that girl, I'm telling you. Little miss pretty pink princess and then the freaky creature love. Weird!

I LOVE the sock Cthulhu!

I've had a relatively successful month when it comes to destashing.

Two hats:


Some necklaces:


And a sweater:


Here is a close up on the lace detail:



I'm obsessed with it and used up about 6 skeins of Vanna's Choice! Hooray!!
