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!

Such cheery, pretty dishcolothes, TTC! I have pinned some instructions for dust masks and will be interested in how yours works out for you.

Thank you! So far, so good on the mask. It's thin so it doesn't get uncomfortably warm/steamy, and it seems to keep the lint at bay. I sewed another basket while using it and no nasal irritation to speak of. I think it kind of freaks out the dog, though.  Roll Eyes

That bowtie necklace is so cool! Makes me want to bust out my NES.

I don't think the mask will do much good against germs. It's just a single layer of quilting cotton. Good for keeping out the larger particles, but still pretty porous.

tendstowardschaos I love that coiled basket. I've made several that were fabric wrapped. Was this one just naked with colored thread? I love the more natural look of it and should make some with what I have leftover! Also, those washcloths look awesome. I love how colorful cotton yarn can be. The mask is a great idea. I have some yarns that get fuzzballs up my nose when I wind them. I might need one of those masks. I never thought about it. Instead, I just sneeze and itch.

TheMistressT What amazing gift boxes!

Yes, the basket is just the clothesline (or sash cord) and thread. I was going to make a fabric basket - they're so pretty! - but I just didn't have the patience that day to do it. Maybe some day.

Oh, that colorful cotton yarn - it turned my hands blue!  Cheesy It'll be fine after a run through the washing machine, though.

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.

Beautiful hooplahs, CLM! The mushroom one is enchanting.

Such clever boxes, T! They look like so much fun to make.

Thanks! It was such a hit, a few people are getting one for Mother's Day next month. I'm actually going to have empty pegs in my thread box when I'm done!

This sounds so meditative to make, and what a beautiful and useful result!

Oh my gosh, was it ever! My toddler fought his nap that day like he was going to be given a medal or something, and I was just frustrated and exhausted. I needed something diverting but productive. This stash-busting project fit the bill perfectly.

Nice!  How often did you switch threads for the ombre effect?

They were all just partial spools, so I just used each color until it ran out. I tried to get each color on both sides, but one or two spools didn't have much on them and didn't get loaded onto a bobbin. I still have most of the lightest shade of pink left.
