I love seeing everyone's craft areas!  All the boxes and drawers make me a bit giddy.

texscrapper - Such a pretty blanket.  It's always nice to see things for babies that aren't pastel.

J-Kieviet - That robe looks super cozy.

yes, I'm sure my niece will love it for after swimming once summer is here - they like to lounge about outside afterwards under a bunch of towels so hopefully this will alleviate the 6 towels the 3 of them use.  I have another one cut out, which I plan to get sewn up this week.

Is the robe fleece or terrycloth?  Either way it's sure to be cozy.

I'm a grown-up who still plays with dolls, and I've been working on a few little things for my newest addition.

A simple dress that used up about half a FQ.

Half a ball of sock yarn went into making a sweater.

The sweater was originally a WIP progress I thought I could finish really quickly.  Pulled it out of stash ready to add sleeves and call it done, but found it wasn't quite the size I needed it to be, so I frogged the whole thing and started from scratch.  Sigh, one step forward, one step back.

The robe is made of fleece, I prefer flannel or fleece robes over terry towel.

I finished a work in progress wall hanging from 2 or 3 years ago!  pics tomorrow.

So, I haven't really "de-stashed".  In fact, I added to it:  I went to the thrift store, looking for a couple of long sleeved shirts.

Instead, I found an entire book series called:  The Family Creative Workshop.   It's from 1977, and is like an encyclopedia of crafting.  I spent $16 on the 24 books, and couldn't get my credit card out fast enough.   I am pretty sure that the people at the thrift store were very confused by the wild eyed woman who couldn't stop giggling.  I may not be welcome back.  Tongue

I have doll clothes on my "to do" list, guadiknight!  A great way to use those small bits...I love the tiny sweater...

I figured out why I have so much extra fabric...I am buying 1 yard each time when I really only need 1/2 yard...I am going to start getting 1/2 yard cuts for most projects from now on...

Do you know that you can ask for cuts even smaller than a 1/2 yard, AMIR?  Joanne's will go as small as you need them too.  B/c I was like you for the longest time, I would ask for a yard, and then never use the rest of the fabric.  But I've recently de-stashed my unwanted fabric (gasp!) and didn't want to add to it.

I always feel bad when I go to fabric stores because I usually have a shopping cart full of bolts...I have to get over that cutting less yardage or not is still a cut... Grin.

dewshines...I'm like you in the craft stores, except that I feel the need to discuss my purchases with the cashier and the customers around me...I get into a lot of conversations about Craftster that way... Grin

I do the same thing, but I try to hold back if there is a line.  Tongue
