I love that top!  What a pretty pattern!

ok--I did it!  I used up about a yard of some Alexander Henry fabric that I have been "saving"...and it was painless to cut it up and use it at last...so now I am ready to cut up more "good" fabric! The lining was also from stash...not my first choice, but at least it has the right colors in it!

I have to brag on myself. A co-worker gave me some scarf yarn the other day and instead of letting it go straight into my stash, I used it THAT DAY! It was mildly impressive.

In other news, I've managed to de-stash one whole skein of yarn and finish out all of my white, black, and grey Red Heart yarn!

Black, white and grey hat:


This purple was an odd skein that I bought because it looked cool, but wasn't really big enough to do much with so I made an ear-warmer headband:


And when I had a little bit left over, I thought it would be enough to make a drink cozy:


And when I STILL had a little bit left over, I made a headband:


I wasn't about to let any of that sit around any longer!

The outside fabric on that is fabulous, and I think I recognize that lining fabric from somewhere....hmmm.... Grin

lol I am trying to use up all the bits of leftovers from all sorts of projects!

I can relate to using up the last bit of yarn...I do the same with fabric...a big project, a small project, coasters, notecard...every bit used...nice job...love the purple headband!!

If there is at least a foot and a half left, I can't stand to throw it away!! And I'm the same way with fabric, however, I gave most of my scraps to a friend who actually uses them! I'm just not crafty enough with fabric to use all the small bits.

Challenge 2: Make something from the millions of tutorials you've collected on Pinterest, or from one of your vast hoards of craft and pattern books.  If it's an internet tutorial, please share the link in case anyone else is inspired to give it a try.

Time to change the seasonal dcor, so I whipped up a few new pillow covers today. I am LOVING this pillow cover thing - so easy and a great way to use up a couple yards of fabric!

Well, looks like it's going to be all destashing for me for a while - my boyfriend got laid off unexpectedly yesterday. Just looking at it as powerful motivation to be smarter with our money, which was something we had been trying to do before this anyway.    Time to go stash digging!  Cheesy

fishstix43 that really sucks hope it's not for very long.

Have done a small amount of stash busting (I really need to work on larger projects, lol).

First a kindle cover for my Mom, it is a very late christmas gift. She asked for one but with a pocket for her charger and cables and I had a huge brain let down and made a little tiny pocket. I didn't want to rip the entire thing apart so I put the project aside for a few weeks in disgust. Then *light bulb* I can make the pocket removable! So I picked off the old pocket and added it to a larger pocket which she can take off and on as needed. Everything but the elastic was from my stash.

Open:


Closed:


I have been working on some little guys for work. I work at a small zoo and we set up a booth to sell little items for conservation at big events. The flamingos are for that and the elephant is for my Mom, also a late gift it accompanies a donation to the elephant sanctuary.



I am currently working on some other little ami's for the conservation booth so hopefully I will have more to show soon.
