carolmb, i love that BOM quilt.

dulcet, that is definitely one of the coolest anniversary gifts I've ever seen.

clm, i can't believe I've never thought of finding an old leather coat for slipper bottoms. That's a great idea.
What do you put in your toothpowder? I've been having problems with toothpastes lately, and i don't think I've ever heard of toothpowder before. I'm intrigued.

MA_P, that is a great-looking diaper.

CLM, that facial mask sounds divine.  Awesome work destashing!

I got started on some more diapers.  Doing them assembly-line style so I really need to restock my stash of elastic and snaps.  But, I have used up several fat quarters, a roll of thread, about 3 yards of flannel, and an old towel that I had sitting around to upcycle.  Next is my bamboo fabric and fleece.

As usual, I've accomplished very little this month in the way of DeStashing (I have however packed and moved a friend and spent a week cat-sitting an animal that likes to eat yarn and destroy paper, which kind of cuts down on crafting abilities).

I did however, get a Christmas present done - a set of cards for my aunt.

I had a blast with these, so I have a feeling I'll be making more cards in the future.  I found the instructions and some good info about corralling your piles of paper scraps here.

I also spent an afternoon covering everything that wasn't nailed down in washi tape from my stash.  No pictures, because who really needs to see four inches of decorative tape on my cell-phone charger?

And finally I made a set of "my address is changing" cards for my mother but left them at her  new place and forgot to get photographic evidence.  She's promised to send me pictures, but is somewhat technologically challenged.  I'm not holding my breath.

So that was July.  My goal for August is to have at least one project to show for myself each week, even if they are itty-bitty ones.  I need to feel like I'm making a bit more progress on my stash, if only for my own peace of mind.

August Themes


Fingerpainting 6 (Hands) by timailius, on Flickr

Color:  Rainbow 
Pattern:  Stars
For:  Pets
Challenge 1:  Make a scrappy project!  This is also a good time to go through your scraps and realistically evaluate how small something can be and still be useful.
Challenge 2:  On the go projects - Make something you can work on while you're out and about.

Those notecards are fantastic!  I often thought about making paper patterns of all of the quilt blocks I like...

I just so happen to be working on my scraps from my quilts...cutting and sorting, more cutting and sorting...I think I have enough for a small quilt for this month!

Excellent. Thanks, clm.

gaudi, my mom has so much scrapbooking stuff, that link will come in very handy.
I'm really loving the cards you made your aunt. I see some of those in my future.

Yay, rainbow! And I've got a scrappy project in the works right now! I have some cloths to finish for my aunt before i can allow myself to really work on it again, though. So hopefully i can find the motivation to finish those soon.
