I actually made this earlier in the month, but due to work and the weather being actually decent enough to do things, I didn't have time to post it or make anything else. I am working on a sweater and a few swap things from stash, but those are more time consuming to actually finish in a timely manner!

But here is a hat:

I read an article once that called the phenomenon "myopia utopia."  Works for me!

I am totally stoked with this, it really surprised me how well it worked out  Grin This won't be a total stash project as I need to buy wadding but the top and backing fabrics are stash.
I've fallen in love with Jenny Doan & The Missouri Star Quilt Co. I can't afford the postage to justify buying from them but her quilting videos have me hooked!  Grin I sat and followed along with her this afternoon/evening after hubby had gone to work as I didn't want him to catch me indulging in unnatural practises (ironing) and this is what I ended up with.



I need to research binding points next  Smiley
I'll be giving this to my older sister as soon as it is complete,I'll just go by her house and leave it on her dining table for her to come home to *lol* it is my genteel version of yarnbombing  Wink

In case it's not obvious the fabrics are dark green,red with gold stars and white with silver swirls and leaves

It is around 36" long judging by how it fits on my sewing table & maybe 18" wide,that's just a guess though and that's why I didn't think I'd be successful at patchwork as my measuring is a bit hit & miss  Wink Thank goodness for templates!

I made a few destashing projects over the past few weeks to donate to a local silent auction, but I forgot to take pictures! Oh well, at least I used some supplies up!

I made a kitchen set - 2 hanging towels, an apron, a hot pad, and a set of reusable "paper" towels, a chevron and burlap tote bag, a headband holder, and 4 embroidered hooded towels.

Thankfully, my towel stash is starting to dwindle!

May Themes


Cotton Yarn
by Fearless Stumbler, on Flickr

Color: Green
Pattern: Floral
For: Your yard, window box, or back alley.
Challenge 1: If your stash is anything like mine you've got a fair amount that was given to you by friends and relatives trying to reduce their own stashes.  Make them something from the materials they gave you.
Challenge 2: Nature Crafts!
