Love the boxes - especially the music one!

Your 'homebody' sweater is great, StudioANF. A crocheted sweater is on my list this year, too. The only way I knit is with a loom. Cheesy


CLM sent me the loveliest cards and envelopes for winning last month's challenge! I am going to a birthday party tonight, so my friend will be the first recipient of one of these beauties. Thank you so much!

I destashed a couple balls of cotton yarn and a bit of fabric to make two dishcloths, a dust mask (to keep lint out of my nose while sewing), and a little handkerchief for my toddler who wanted something for himself. Cheesy

I like the challenges. Gives me small kick in the pants to finish things here and there. This month's is timely since I'm working on a few surprise Mother's Day gifts for the ladies in my family.

Did some stash-busting and made a couple washcloths from what was left of my cotton yarn.




I also made myself a face mask to keep the dust and lint from my sewing machine from getting up my nose. And, my toddler demanded something from the left-over fabric, so he got a little handkerchief.



I'm making more of those coiled baskets (gifts!) and the rope makes so much lint! Ugh. Also, demanding toddler demands a basket of his own.  Cheesy Silly boy. He'll get his basket, though.

Awesome t-shirt quilt, Quaggy! I've always wanted to make one of those (just have to convince DH to let me steal some of his huge collection of nerdy tees).

Brilliant use of binder rings, T, and impressive stash of washi tape!


I finally did a bit of stash-busting. This basket used up a 100-foot package of clothesline and nearly 8 partial spools of thread, plus a couple other bits and bobs.

Kwality, your Baby Groot is so sweet! What an awesome gift.


This basket was sort of on my list, I went with the easier version to get it done while still busting some of my stash.

6  Pink Ombre Rope Basket in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by tendstowardschaos on: April 05, 2019 06:09:04 AM
It only took a few hours to turn 100 feet of clothesline into this adorable basket.  Shocked

I was stressed out and needed something new and relatively easy to soothe my nerves. I had originally purchased the clothesline to make one of those fabric coil baskets from all of my quilting scraps, but that seemed like way too much work for how much time I had (and my mood).  Roll Eyes

I read quite a few tutorials, but here's one of the best ones I remembered to Pin.

I didn't want just a plain-Jane basket, though, so I decided to dress it up by using colored thread. Somehow, I've managed to accumulate an insane amount of thread...18 years of sewing and what I've inherited from other people. I grabbed 8 spools of pink, in various shades, and started with the darkest (not in the picture because it was already in the machine).

100 feet of 1/4" clothesline 7.5 partial spools of thread, a scrap of leather, and some waxed linen thread later...

This basket (that I don't have a use for yet)! It's about 11" wide and 5.5" tall.







Thanks for looking!

Beautiful paper crafts, CLM! All of the colors and patterns remind me of batik.

Thank you for the challenge prize!


I did finish (half) of a project last night. I'm so stinkin' excited about it, too. My first sock:



It's a craft I've wanted to try for ages, but didn't because knitting needles frustrate me so badly. Then, I found out that there are looms for that. And looms are something I can manage!

I've had this notebook cover laying around, half finished, for ages, left over from my screen-printing attempts. I finished it the other day just to cross it off my (long) list of WIPs. It's a bit sloppy, but it works.
